23 Struggles Everyone Who Is Always Late Understands

It's not a bad habit, it's a lifestyle.

Being late isn’t an issue, it’s a lifestyle. It’s a very important task to be the friend that is constantly making everyone late. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it. You know you’re the friend who is always late when you take pride in your impending lateness to all events. They have tried everything and yet, you still can’t make it on time. I mean what’s the point of being on time anyways. Time is just a concept why waste so much time on it, right?

  1. Your friends always tell you to be somewhere a half hour earlier than you need to be, and you’re still late.
  2. That once every three years you are actually on time for something it’s a miracle.
  3. You could get ready three hours in advance and still be late.
  4. You don’t understand why people get nervous being the first ones at a party, because you’ve never had that problem.
  5. Telling yourself you’re not gonna change your outfit again.. and you do.
  6. You’re already late.. You might as well stop and get a coffee while you’re at it.
  7. Waking up late and telling yourself you don’t have time to do your makeup… but then you contour anyways.
  8. “I don’t have time to do my hair.. Okay I’m going to do my hair.”
  9. You’re basically a NASCAR driver trying to get to work on time.
  10. The only way people know you're not coming to class is after the first ten minutes, because you’re never on time anyways.
  11. The only way for you to be on time for anything is to show up an hour early.
  12. You’re not even offended when people tell you that you’re always late, you take it in stride.
  13. You’ve tried to defeat this bad habit and you swear that made it worse.
  14. Alarm clocks can’t save you. They wouldn’t have invented the snooze button if they didn’t want you to use it right?
  15. Doctor’s appointments are your own personal hell. You’ve debated on asking if you can just make an appointment within an hour, cause who knows what time you’ll get there.
  16. Doing your makeup in public isn’t embarrassing to you, because sometimes it’s the only way you can get it done.
  17. Showing up anywhere 15 minutes late, holding your coffee, your phone, dropping your car keys, carrying your coat, and your purse falling off your shoulder.
  18. Parking is your worst enemy, because now you aren’t just ten minutes late, you know have to drive around another ten minutes in an attempt to find a parking spot.
  19. Making your New Year's Resolution that you’re going to try and be on time this year, and that fails when you’re late to work the next day.
  20. You’ve already accepted you’re going to be late to your own funeral.
  21. On your wedding day people are going to think you’re a runaway bride, when really you just slept through your alarm again.
  22. You probably won “most likely to be late to graduation” in high school.
  23. You take it in stride, cause hey, you could have worse habits.

The Truth About Young Marriage

Different doesn't mean wrong.

When I was a kid, I had an exact picture in my mind of what my life was going to look like. I was definitely not the kind of girl who would get married young, before the age of 25, at least.

And let me tell you, I was just as judgmental as that sentence sounds.

I could not wrap my head around people making life-long commitments before they even had an established life. It’s not my fault that I thought this way, because the majority opinion about young marriage in today’s society is not a supportive one. Over the years, it has become the norm to put off marriage until you have an education and an established career. Basically, this means you put off marriage until you learn how to be an adult, instead of using marriage as a foundation to launch into adulthood.

When young couples get married, people will assume that you are having a baby, and they will say that you’re throwing your life away — it’s inevitable.

It’s safe to say that my perspective changed once I signed my marriage certificate at the age of 18. Although marriage is not always easy and getting married at such a young age definitely sets you up for some extra challenges, there is something to be said about entering into marriage and adulthood at the same time.

Getting married young does not mean giving up your dreams. It means having someone dream your dreams with you. When you get lost along the way, and your dreams and goals seem out of reach, it’s having someone there to point you in the right direction and show you the way back. Despite what people are going to tell you, it definitely doesn’t mean that you are going to miss out on all the experiences life has to offer. It simply means that you get to share all of these great adventures with the person you love most in the world.

And trust me, there is nothing better than that. It doesn’t mean that you are already grown up, it means that you have someone to grow with.

You have someone to stick with you through anything from college classes and changing bodies to negative bank account balances.

You have someone to sit on your used furniture with and talk about what you want to do and who you want to be someday.

Then, when someday comes, you get to look back on all of that and realize what a blessing it is to watch someone grow. Even after just one year of marriage, I look back and I am incredibly proud of my husband. I’m proud of the person he has become, and I’m proud of what we have accomplished together. I can’t wait to see what the rest of our lives have in store for us.

“You can drive at 16, go to war at 18, drink at 21, and retire at 65. So who can say what age you have to be to find your one true love?" — One Tree Hill

Summer And Jobs

Working summers doesn't have to be tedious.


Like many other college students, I was ready for summer but was kinda bummed that I had to work. Its not that I didn't like where I was working, I actually was really lucky to be working in a hospital environment but I just hated being alone all summer from 9-5. I've had this job for a few years now and a few other paid interns came and went but I never really connected with any of them. This year is different though.

I got really lucky to have another intern work with me that was very similar to me. The tasks we got were always simple but they were made to be more fun because I got to do them while talking with someone else. Now I actually enjoy and look forward to going to work.

The key to finding a good job is finding one that you enjoy doing and one that will help you gain knowledge that will help you out with future career plans. Working with friends also make tasks enjoyable! I would be careful with working with your friend however because if your job needs you to be serious and focused, being around your best friends may distract you from that.

Another thing that definitely makes summer jobs more enjoyable are taking breaks! It is your summer vacation after all! I'm not saying don't take a day off just to sit around, but if you make plans with family and friends, take a Friday off and enjoy the warm weather and good company! Employers understand that us college students and on break and have lives, they are usually very lenient with days off!

If you have to do a summer job to make money to live off of or pay for college, the best thing to do is look at the big picture. If you don't enjoy your job but can't afford to quit, remember that the money if going to help you out a lot. Also, this job is probably only for the summer right? So it's not permanent my friend! Get through these annoying few weeks and you will be back at college, taking steps for a bigger and brighter future.

Summer jobs are tough, I know, but make the most of it! And don't forget to enjoy it whenever you can!!!
