6 Venmo Transfers Every College Student Has Sent Or Received, Unfortunately

"It's OK, Tiffany, we know that those emojis mean alcohol so why don't you just write that."

If you've never heard of Venmo, then you are definitely out of the loop. For those of you that have no idea what it is (hi mom), it's an app that most college kids use to send money from their bank account to a friend's bank.

If you've ever scrolled through your Venmo feed, then you've probably seen some of the random things people send money for.

1. Alcohol

It's OK, Tiffany, we know that those emojis mean alcohol so why don't you just write that.

2. Food

If there's something college kids like more than alcohol, it's Cookout and McDonald's.

3. Gas and Uber

4. Drugs

Now a lot of people like to use the maple leaf and maybe little pill emojis but this girl was not shy about what she was paying for.

5. The Random Money Friends Send To Embarrass Eachother

If you scroll through your feed long enough you're bound to see a friend paying someone else for something that probably shouldn't be public knowledge.

6. More Alcohol

Because this is probably 90% of the reason people send money.

22 New Things That I Want To Try Now That I'm 22

A bucket list for my 22nd year.


"I don't know about you but I'm feelin' 22," I have waited 6 long years to sing that and actually be 22! Now 22 doesn't seem like a big deal to people because you can't do anything that you couldn't do before and you're still super young. But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

1. Go sky diving.

What's crazier than jumping out of a plane? (Although I'll probably try indoor skydiving first.)

2. Go cliff jumping/diving.

I must be the only Rhode Islander who hasn't gone to Jamestown and jumped off a cliff.

3. Ride in a hot air balloon.

Up, up and away.

4. Try out skiing.

Cash me in the next Olympics, how bout dat.

5. Try out snow boarding.

Shawn White, I'm coming for you.

6. Go bungee jumping.

Because at least this time I'll be attached to something.

7. Go to Portugal.

I mean I'm Portuguese so I have to go at some point, right?

8. Go to Cape Verde.

Once again, I'm Cape Verdean so I have to go.

9. Vist one of the seven wonders of the world.

I mean hey, Egypt's on, my bucket list.

10. Try out surfing.

It's only natural that somebody from the Ocean State knows how to surf.

11. Learn a new langauge.

Because my little bit of Portuguese, Spanish and Latin isn't cutting it anymore.

12. Travel to a state that I've never been to before.

Fun fact: I've only been to 17 of the 50 states.

13. Go paddle boarding.

Pretty boring but I've never done it.

14. Go scuba diving.

I'm from the Ocean State so I guess I should see the ocean up close and personal.

15. Learn how to line dance.

There's actually a barn in my state that does line dancing, so this one will definitely get crossed off.

16. Go kayaking.

All this water around me and I haven't done a lot of the water activites.

17. Stay the night in a haunted hotel room.

I bet if I got my friends to come with me, it would be like the Suite Life of Zach and Cody episode, minus the ghost coming out of the wall but you never know.

18. Get my palms read.

Because who doesn't want to know their future.

19. Go to a medium.

Like a medium that can communicate with people that have died.

20. Take a helicopter ride.

Air plane: check Helicopter:....

21. Sleep under the stars.

Because sleeping in a tent is more like glamping than camping

22. Just to try new things in my everyday life.

Whether it's trying a new restaurant, getting something different at my usual restaurants, changing my usual style, going on the scary rides at amusement parks, and bringing things I used to do back into my life now.

I Skipped The 'Party Scene' And I Don't Regret It

It saved me a lot of trouble and regrets.


I know what you're all thinking. The 'party scene' is right of passage for any high school kid or college kid, well not for this girl. Being fresh in college straight out of high school is a little scary and I just think partying would only make that worse.

I personally never saw any fun in parties. Alcohol or no alcohol, parties always looked like they were just an anxiety fest. I don't really see a point in surrounding myself with a bunch of strangers who would make me uncomfortable. Being an introvert is quite the challenge when other people you know and trust want to just have fun with you around.

I am in no way shaming anyone who goes to parties. It is your life and you should live it how you see fit.

I think that me skipping this part of my life gave me opportunities to take some time to myself and to realize what I truly needed from life and college. Even though I might miss some social experience with others, I can always find better experiences being with people I know just going to the movies or just hanging out in my room playing Uno.

Personally, I think parties can be great social time for others, I just don't see it being in my future.
