21 Signs You're Not Ready to Graduate

21 Signs You're Not Ready to Graduate

It's that time of the year again. The sun is finally out, there are day parties every weekend, and finals are quickly approaching. However, this year is different. Why? Because you're a senior and these are your last few weeks of college. Instead of being excited about summer being right around the corner, you're having a quarter life crisis wondering what the ^#*@ you're going to do with your life. Some of your friends have amazing jobs lined up in New York City, some are going to grad school, and the really lucky ones are coming back for a victory lap. While you fall into zero of those categories your life looks somewhat like this:

1. You can't imagine a weekend consisting of only two days rather than three.

2. You wait to do your laundry until the next time you go home to your parents' house.

3. When people ask what you're going to school for, you say it's to get your MRS degree.

4. You don't know how to manage your own money and cannot imagine doing it with a steady paycheck.

5. Your apparel consists of leggings from Sunday-Wednesday and going-out clothes from Thursday-Saturday.

6. When you run out of groceries you're too lazy to go buy more so you eat out for a week straight... until you check your bank statement.

7. You've completely given up on your GPA because enjoying your last few weeks of school is way more important than getting good grades.

8. The pizza delivery guy knows your identity based upon your address.

9. You have no idea how to study for something without using the Internet.

10. Time spent in the library consists of 50 percent Facebook, 25 percent finding new music, 20 percent comparing your life to random articles (like this one) and 5 percent actually studying.

11. Monday is your day to recover from the weekend, Sunday is just a day to laze around with your roommates in your pajamas.

19. You still watch cartoons.

20. Your parents still give you a weekly allowance.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
