5 Not So Fun Parts About Being Back At School

Eh, are we really excited its September?

5 Not So Fun Parts About Being Back At School

1) Schoolwork

Essays, exams, quizzes, homework, worksheets, study cards, you name it. Who wants any of that? Even as someone who loves to write, I dread the "slow typing-stare into space-how can I still not spell?" vibe of essay creation. At times there is so much work and stress I question whether I'm actually absorbing any of the information I'm processing, or just trying to get the assignment done.

2) That Alarm Clock in the AM

Whether you wake up to a default alarm setting or your favorite pop oldie, odds are its your most dreaded sound in the universe. Alarm rings are just pure evil. Sometimes they ring early, sometimes late, sometimes, right on time, and sometimes not even at all. Its as if the devil himself possessed your phone/alarm device with the intentions of stealing the sugar plums dancing through your peacefully slumbered head. Why can't life just start at noon? I think we'd all be a lot more well rested if that were the law of the land.

3) Fluctuations of Temperature in a Dorm Room

Florida and Antarctica plague the mine fielded trenches of my dorm room. Turn on the fan, Antarctica blows in. Close a window, Florida torches the territory. The saying, "I'm happy with the temperature of my dorm room does not exist." If someone tries to claim this, know they are lying to themselves and can't face the harsh reality of a living space without a happy medium temperature.

4) Group Projects

People are difficult….Need I elaborate? Projects are tedious…. Need I explain? Put the two together and vwella. You get a ball of frustrated, bored people and half completed work.

5) Living in a Room with Another Person Instead of a Home

After getting back from living in a small square with my roommate for months, I stepped in my one person room and turned right into the living room, and then turned left into the mess free bathroom. I realized just how nice it is to live in a house. A space large enough to spread out in and have options as to where Netflix should be watched. Homes with loving families will always beat out any college dorm no matter how well you and your roommate get along in your four by four, overpriced square.

Its hard to go back to school no matter how old you are. Sharing your woes with sympathetic individuals helps. Perhaps it gives you the incentive to work hard so that one day there will be no more back to school negatives and more than a single room to live in.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
