22 Thoughts I Have During My 120 Minute History Lecture

Lectures = torture.

22 Thoughts I Have During My 120 Minute History Lecture

Lectures, aka torture. They are almost as evil as 8 a.m. classes or classes on Fridays. All college students have that one class. The class where no matter how hard you try, you can't even pretend to be interested. My history lecture this semester makes me want to curl up in a ball and nap the entire hour and 20 minutes that I'm sitting there.

Here are just a few of the many, many thoughts that run through my head during my looong lecture.

1. OK, here we go.

*Pours glass of wine*

2. I think I'll try and actually be a productive student and pay attention to the lecture!!!

Maybe if I pay attention, the class will seem more interesting?

3. LOL, jk.

That tiny bit of motivation only lasted a good 5 minutes.

4. What is the attendance policy for this lecture again?

Let's see, I've already missed three...

5. *Counts the number of days on my calendar until summer break.*

May can't get here soon enough...

6. How much longer is this class?

*Glances back at the clock*

7. AN HOUR?!?!!?


8. This powerpoint we're going through is 80 slides long. Why tho?

Why didn't the professor just email us this powerpoint?

9. I wish I was currently sunbathing on the beach drinking a margarita...

*Begins daydreaming about summer, the beach, and hot, sunny weather.*

10. But instead, I'm here, struggling to stay awake.

The only thing keeping me awake right now is this uncomfortable lecture desk and my professor's annoying voice.

11. Man, I am so hungry.

Pizza sounds AMAZING right now.

12. I hope no one can hear my stomach growling.


13. This professor is just a tad too passionate about this subject.

How can you be THIS excited this early in the morning?

14. What are the odds that someone else in this lecture is just as bored as I am?

*Stares at the other 50 students in this class that look just as uninterested as me*

15. FOCUS.


16. Wait, why are some people taking notes? Should I be taking notes?

This slide only has a picture of a graph....how do I put that in my notes?

17. Why does this one kid always feel the need to share his opinion?

Sit down, kid.

18. Why would anyone even bother showing up to class 40 minutes late?

What is the point?

19. This class has absolutely nothing to do with my major.

I'm a communications major!!! Why do I need to take a class on post-1945 history?

20. Omg can we please be let out early today?


21. "This will be on the exam" ... yeah when is the exam again?

*Quickly checks the syllabus*

21. PRAISE! The professor let us out 3 minutes early!

Thank YOU, Mr. Professor.

22. Time to go reward myself with food.

Pizza, here I come.

Push through; the semester will be over before you know it.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
