Squeezing three people with lots of clothes and not-so-necessary but totally necessary items into one dorm room can be a little tough. But, it definitely helps when the two other people turn out to be your best friends. All of the sudden, you know how everyone operates and the little questions become a part of normal conversation. You also know that, if anyone ever heard all three of you in a conversation, they'd totally think you're a little out there.

As the end of my sophomore year in college is now in sight, I've begun to take a look back on this year and how utterly strange it has been. I've recently found a term that perfectly describes everything I've felt from this year in just two words: Sophomore Slump. This term has been coined to describe a,
"Period of developmental confusion where students may face difficulties in academic, social, and personal development. In addition, after the novelties of college social life have worn off, nothing seems quite as special."
I've definitely experienced this feeling this year, and although I find myself still enjoying college, the stresses have seemed to increase while the excitement has simultaneously worn off. If you're suffering through the Sophomore Slump as well, you might be able to relate to these tell-tale signs.
1. You went from going out every weekend to adopting a sleep schedule similar to your grandparents.
Freshman year, every weekend was full of constant opportunities for parties. You waited your whole life for the true college experience, and last year you went a little too hard. Now, you're making up for it by spending your weekends reading, sleeping and most importantly, binging the latest Netflix original special.
2. Frat parties are yesterday’s news.
I still remember the excitement leading up to frat parties during my freshman year, especially for tailgates. Now, if I ever even do go out, I prefer a house party with people I actually enjoy being around.
3. You begin questioning whether your major is right for you…and is it too late now?
Is my major the right one for me? I'm already too far in! I can't back out now! Sophomore year is basically a giant ball of stress and quarter-life crises.
4. You enjoy feeling more like an adult, but you miss the innocence of being a freshman.
As a freshman, you were still naive to adult life, and while that had its own problems, sometimes you miss being the new kid on campus with a whole world of opportunities ahead of you.
5. Somehow, if it’s even possible, your procrastination has gotten even worse.
If you thought last year was bad...
6. And you still find yourself in a constant state of denial.
It's fine, I'm fine, everything's fine.
