5 Things That Only Happen In College

5 Things That Only Happen In College

College is a weird place, but you know you love it.

Your time in college is a time unlike any other that you have or will experience in your life. You're kind of an adult, but you're not really considered an adult yet. You kind of have responsibilities, but not really. It's weird. It's confusing. It's hard. It's exhausting. But more than anything, it's so much fun. And needless to say, there are definitely a lot of things that only happen in college.

Here are a few.

1. Getting milkshakes in the middle of the night With people you don't really know

This is especially common at the beginning of freshman year. One time my roommate and I got milkshakes at 1 a.m. with two people we had just met that night. We're still friends with one of them, but we've never talked to the other person since that night.

2. Staying up all night to write a paper

In high school, you probably had your mom on your back all the time keeping you from procrastinating until the very last minute, but in college, that's not the case. And to be honest, you kind of wish your mom was there to bug you about that paper so you wouldn't end up falling asleep with your laptop in your lap and still wearing your glasses.

3. Crying every time you see a dog on campus

Okay. Let's be real. Everybody cries a little when they see a dog, whether they're in college or not, but when you're in college, you don't necessarily get to see a dog every day. Plus, you have to live with the sadness of knowing you're not allowed to have a dog in your dorm.

4. Making friends really quickly

It's so funny. You meet someone, really like them, and then, suddenly, it's two months later and you realize you spend every free moment you have with them. But you love it (and them) so much.

5. Being in a coffee shop more than your dorm

Let's be real. Your dorm is just for sleeping. You're never actually there.

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

For The Grandparents You Lost Before You Were Ready, Because You Never Can Be

We weren't ready and there is so much I wish I could tell you.


You were taken far too soon. It's not fair, I didn't have you for long enough. Why do the bad things happen to the good people?

It's been nine years and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you. When you left, I had to be strong for mom because she had to take care of everything. But when it was all said and done, I was curled up in the closet crying.

It's been nine years and you've missed so much. You didn't get to see me baptized, start cheerleading, graduate high school, get my first job, or have my first real boyfriend. It hurts to know you won't see me graduate college, get married, or have kids. But, I know you are watching over from Heaven. I can always feel your presence.

It scares me because Kylie was only 6 when you left us. I worry about what she remembers. I'm scared because I can barely remember your voices. But I am thankful because I remember grandpa's love for hats, grandma's love for scrabble, and a shared love of card games. I remember big Christmases, the mess of making chicken and dumplings, running down the hall away from the tickle monster, and most of all, I remember the love you showed me. Your love was overwhelming, safe, and unfaltering.

To you Grandpa and Grandma, Ray and Joy, I miss you, I love you, I hope I do you proud. I will show the love you gave me to as many people as I can. Your memory will live on through the stories we tell and you will never be forgotten.

I'll give mom a hug and kiss for you. I know you'd give us all one. Keep watching over, OK? I love you.
