5 Ways to Fight Senioritis

We've all had it at some point.

5 Ways to Fight Senioritis

For some of us, it was our senior year of high school. We roamed those locker-lined hallways romanticizing our glory days. We planned those senior pranks like our life depended on it.

However for some of us, senioritis has been brought to a whole new level. Collegiate senioritis is not simply wanting to graduate in order to go back to school. My friends, this is the beginning of the end (unless you're going to graduate school in which case, good luck). Our last year in school EVER. This strain of the disease we talked about so frequently in high school is more real than ever. Although it is only October, it's knocking on our doors telling us, "Yes, you should skip class and drive to Galveston. Yes, sleeping all day is a good idea." 

People, we must fight these lazy tendencies. Now is not the time to jump ship! We still have one more year of the "best four years of our lives." So let's live it up, and in the meantime, make sure we graduate. 

1. Keep your friends close.

The friends you have now are the ones stuck with you for life. So, invest deeply. Don't waste time still trying to be your cool, know everyone, freshman self. 

2. Stay motivated. 

Although everyone wants to graduate and immediately travel the world or live on an island in Fiji, for most of us this is not a reality (if it is then you could have stopped reading after the title of this article, so I'm not sure why you still are). Most college graduates move to a metropolitan area and work an 8-5 job making less money than their entire college education cost. The only way to climb ladders is hard work people, so don't slack off now and create bad habits. 

3. Be well-rounded.

Most of our college lives are centered around academics and being social. While these things will remain once we graduate, there are other parts of life that are equally important. Eating well, exercising, finding hobbies you love. These are integral to a healthy post-graduate life-style.

4. Get involved.

It's never too late to try something new. Maybe you'll discover a passion you never knew you had! New experiences are going to be a part of our lives no matter what stage we are in, so let's embrace them. Also, having a variety of life experiences in college is a great way to come across well-rounded in a job interview.

5. Be you.

Yes, I saved the sappiest for last. But honestly, out there in the real world people don't want fake versions of ourselves walking around like robots. They want genuine. They want reality. Don't wait until after college to be independent. Start finding your unique identity now!

For all you December-graduates out there, you are in our thoughts and prayers. 

For those taking a victory lap, bless your soul.

74 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

Things to do in October.


Halloween is a fun holiday for everyone of all ages. There are so many fun things to do in the month of October before Halloween and the day of Halloween. I love Halloween especially with all the candy and different types of goodies. Halloween is for everyone that enjoys to be a part of this wonderful holiday and also be careful on Halloween as well. It gives everyone a chance to show what they love to do as well.
