I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it

872979

Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

Stop Doing These 6 Things In College

College is not about sleeping ten hours and partying every night, it is learning and hard work.

I want to start by saying that you are allowed to have fun in college. It's your time to realize who you are, who you're not. However, that should not be an excuse to be careless and waste thousands and thousands of dollars based on poor decisions.

If you or someone else you know is having trouble figuring out where you're going wrong in college, here are just some things you should stop doing to hopefully better your college experience academically.

​Skipping class.​​

Point blank. Period. Every class you skip is hundreds of dollars going down the drain. It is so disrespectful to professors and most importantly, you're hurting your chance to get a good education.

Eating fast food every day.

1. It's unhealthy, and 2. it is crazy expensive! I mean if you have the money and work out a lot, go for it I guess. Go crazy and try to cook something different every once in a while!

Going out to drink every day of the week.

You have better things to do than to go out every night and drink and party. Every night or every other night is kind of excessive? Just be safe, choose your time wisely, take care of yourself.

Not doing your homework.

Where do you think that will get you?

Procrastinating all day every day.

I am guilty of this sometimes myself. But make time to get your stuff done! You'll thank me later.

Giving up.

Use your resources, get help with a tutor or visit your professors. Do not give up!

And always remember: No excuses.
