The 6 Types of Stressed College Kids

We all handle stress differently.

The 6 Types of Stressed College Kids

Well here we are: finals week. The stress of the end of the year, turning in last minute assignments (we all do it), frantically studying for that final you have in 6 hours, and trying to figure out your plans for the summer. So most college students (who are 75 percent panic, 15 percent productivity, and 5 percent coffee at this point) succumb to stress. And there are several types of stressed students.

1. The one that spends 12+ hours at the library

After hour 10 they probably aren't retaining any new information, but if it makes them feel better it's probably best to just let them be.

2. The one that takes naps everywhere. And I mean everywhere.

Taking a nap on the table outside the library cannot be comfortable. But you do you, man.

3. That one kid who will burst into tears if you mention anything to do with class, work, life, family, or time.

Innocent human: "Hey Jenny you want to go on a walk?"

Jenny: "WHY WOULD YOU EVEN ASK THAT?" *cue uncontrollable sobbing*

4. The one that only looks up pictures of baby animals.

I will not apologize for the 25 Snapchats of baby hippos with their tongues sticking out.

5. The one that cleans everything in sight.

It makes them feel productive without actually having to do anything school-related. But I'm not about to complain about a spotless kitchen.

6. The one that is eerily calm.

For some reason the stress of finals doesn't get to them and they have a calm about them that infuriates the rest of us.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
