29 Things In College Scarier Than Halloween

Being in college is a living nightmare every student has — get ready to relate!

1. Syllabus day.

A bunch of rules you're expected to know for the semester or even the whole year.

2. Welcome week.

Meeting a bunch of strangers that they expect you to be friends with.

3. Icebreakers.

The cherry on top of Welcome Week.

4. Tests.

Always were scary, are scary, and always will be scary.

5. Class registration.

You stress out only to realize you will get the least ideal schedule year after year and there is nothing you can do about it.

6. Textbook prices.

Books are expensive considering the number of times they are actually used by students.

7. Realizing the Starbucks line is too long.

You need coffee but can't compromise study time for coffee.

8. Running out of coffee.

How are you going to stay up now?

9. Finding out the dining hall is closed.

Why are you paying so much if you can only eat at the oddest hours of the day?

10. Finding out your favorite restaurant is closed.

You made the walk to get real food, and now you can't.

11. Tuition.

Are scholarships a myth?

12. Student loans.

Just thinking about how much money you owe the bank after graduating gives you goosebumps.

13. Student debt.

And after all those loans, tuition, and other prices, you are broke right out of college!

14. Wifi outages.

Whether you want to finish that assignment due in 2 minutes or watch Netflix, it's an inconvenience either way.

15. Eating alone in the dining hall.

It's nice sometimes but can you really do it every day while staying confident?

16. The roommate.

Whether it's meeting your roommate or living with him/her...

17. Community showers.

Sharing a shower with your whole floor, and having the water change the color of your hair. There is nothing good about it.

18. Making your own appointments/phone calls.

You have to adult now and make sure you're doing things right.

19. Alarms for 8 A.M. classes.

Nothing worse than hearing that alarm go off before the sun is even out.

20. Oversleeping.

Whether you fear oversleeping or whether it happens, it's no fun.

21. Not finding a seat in the library.

You just want to sit down and do your homework- it's all you want.

22. Your grocery store receipt.

Who knew food and toilet paper was that expensive? And why?

23. Running out of food.

No explanation necessary.

24. Group projects.

When your professor says "I'll be choosing your groups" *shiver*

25. The freshman fifteen.

*Checks weight every day to watch for a single pound*

26. Not being able to go home.

Whether you can't catch a flight or have events planned on campus, it's always scary to think you'll be stuck on campus longer than you need to be.

27. Choosing a major.

What do you want to do with your life in less than 4 years???

28. Walking to class.

You're on the opposite side of campus and had to be in class 7 minutes ago.

29. Any dumb decision you make.

It will haunt you forever.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

We have got to create a safer work environment for people with disabilities.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
