7 Excuses All College Students Make To Skip The Gym

7 Excuses All College Students Make To Skip The Gym

Because sometimes you just really, really can't make it to the treadmill.

College is filled with so many things to do, sometimes it's genuinely hard to fit the gym into your routine. But other times, you're just too lazy and come up with some pretty creative justifications to skip that dreaded trudge on the treadmill...

1. I need to study

"I'm just so busy with school work!" -you, while texting a friend, ordering Jimmy Johns, and watching the Best Vines of All Time Compilation on YouTube.

2. I already went yesterday

I mean, you can't go two days in a row... that would just be excessive.

3. I need to clean my room

It wasn’t until you got to college that you started doing things you used to procrastinate as the new form of procrastination. Because obviously that one shelf on your desk that has been cluttered for months must be cleaned right now. How could you possibly run on the treadmill with such pressing matters at hand?

4. I need to do laundry

Then, you have to wait in your bed and eat snacks for the hour your laundry is in the dryer...

5. It's too cold

If you go to U of M or any other Midwestern school, it’s always going to be too cold. If you use this excuse, you will only make it to the gym about 10 out of the about 180 school days per year.

Bonus points if you claim it's too cold to walk the two minutes to the heated gym, but have no complaints when someone asks you to trudge 15 minutes in the snow to No Thai.

Extra bonus points if you then walk in a short skirt and no jacket to Slounge later that night. Clearly, being bundled in your Canada Goose parka and sweats to the CCRB would have been just too brutal of a trek.

6. I'm getting sick

At college, you're basically always sick. You can't remember the last time you weren't convinced you were developing the first signs of strep.

7. I just ate

Ah, my favorite excuse. I mean... the irony. I especially love to say this after sitting in bed for two hours prior to dinner, then going to dinner, then claiming I don’t have time after dinner because I just ate. I must now digest my food for five hours until 11 p.m. when the gym closes.

Shoot, I can't believe the CCRB just closed!

Lil Yachty's 'Lil Boat 2' May Not Be Enough To Keep Him Afloat

Here's what you need to know about "Lil Boat 2."

On March 9, Lil Yachty dropped his newest album, “Lil Boat 2.” The album consists of 17 songs, most of which were probably better off not being on the album and seriously failed to impress me, despite its early success on iTunes.

In all of the reviews I have ever written, I normally organize it song-by-song, giving feedback to each track. This time, however, I think I can save all of us time on this article by just being completely honest about Lil Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”

Most of the songs from 1-10 on the tracklist are NOT worth listening to.

Other than those three, every other song from the top ten songs on the tracklist were absolute garbage.

The beats to the songs weren’t that bad but, overall, it just sounded like Lil Yachty and his features were WAY too high to be in the studio.

Yachty’s flows, bars and rhyme schemes were ALL weak throughout the entire album, and if it weren’t for the final six songs on “Lil Boat 2,” this review would be nothing but bashing Lil Yachty.

From the 12th track on the album, "MICKEY" (ft. Offset, Lil Baby) the album runs through much more smoothly, regardless of how basic those last couple of songs are.

I imagine Lil Yachty’s fanbase consists mostly of teenagers who eat Tide for Internet views and anybody who knows nothing about what a real rapper is.

Seriously. I cannot stress how elementary this album is. If you’re looking for new rap music to listen to, check out Tory Lanez’s album, “MEMORIES DON’T DIE,” or Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino II.”

Both of those albums are so much better than “Lil Boat 2” that they make Yachty look like an amateur — which he is.

Final Score: 5.8/10

Did Draco Malfoy Ever Get The Clout He Deserved?

Yes, he was literally the worst for a majority of the series. But does this one moment make up for it all?

The new trailer for the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series just dropped and I have a LOT of feelings. Mainly:

With the release of this new trailer, the only natural thing to do is to binge watch the "Harry Potter" series. Now, if you don’t know about "Harry Potter" series, I’m going to assume that you were born literally minutes ago. For those of you who do know what I’m talking about, let’s chat.

Throughout the series, we see some pretty rotten witches, wizards and muggles. The worst being Bellatrix LeStrange, in my opinion.

*Side note: Voldemort killed meticulously and with his own “reasoning” that supported his actions. Bellatrix killed for sport. No reason was necessary to support her choices. Regardless of who I thought was worse, it doesn’t change the fact that they were both 100% assholes.*

Throughout the movie, and even more so throughout the book, we are able to see slight character arcs for a majority of these lesser-evil villains, such as Petunia Dursley, Narcissa Malloy, Snape, and Draco Malfoy.

After Snape, Draco had one of the biggest character arcs in the series. He saved Harry and, ultimately, through his actions, gave Harry one last chance to defeat Voldemort. How? Well, Pottermore explains it best, but to put it simply, he refused to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione up to Bellatrix and the Snatchers.

This moment is so pivotal and apparent in the books, yet on screen, while it’s still a huge moment, it still gets downplayed. The weight of the moment isn’t truly felt and could be taken as more of a mistake on Malfoy’s part. That moment, if not understood correctly, could change many viewers' opinions about Draco's transformation from elitist, bigot, selfish snob to a (slightly) unknowingly ignorant, scared, defeated teen.

Damnit, J.K. Rowling, you’ve done it again. Even after all these years, somehow I still always seem to find something new.

Now let’s talk about how the new movie will allow the Ministry to apparate onto Hogwarts?!
