Moral of the story: maybe don't explore these personas? Or do—whatever floats your boat.

9 Questionable People You Will Undoubtedly Meet In College
Isabelle Roshko

College is a totally strange assortment of people from all walks of life.

As it has been dubbed the "time for exploration," many people do quite a bit of exploring. One thing I've found amongst all the exploration, is that some individuals find themselves caught in questionable personas.

Some are just strange, others could be considered unpleasant. Regardless, I give to you 9 questionable people you will undoubtedly meet in college.

1. The girl who acts like she has your best interest at heart, only to turn on you the second something doesn’t go her way

I really thought catty drama would disappear once I turned 20 years old—apparently not. This girl could also be categorized as "The girl everyone told you to stay away from, but she she always seemed 'so nice' to you"—you were wrong.

2. The TA who is very obviously high as the moon each session

Your major doesn't matter for this one. Regardless of whether its humanities, sciences, art, the TA doesn't discriminate. I guess it's a good way to cope with 20 blank faces staring at you for an hour, right? For the students, it's not ideal.

3. Dudes who can’t take a hint

I was talking to my girlfriends about this the other day: if I haven't responded to, like, 15 of your texts and an unlimited number of snapchats, do you seriously still think I'm down? I suppose shootin-yer-shot is better than not trying at all…

4. People who hate you because they like your hookup/bae

College is a really weird place where you're undoubtedly going to wind up spit sisters or the like with people you know. I'm sorry my boyfriend/girlfriend/lover doesn't have the hots for you—not my fault.

5. People who hate you because of past hookups

Again, a lot of jealousy and hormones don't make a peaceful concoction. I promise you I'm not trying to steal your man.

6. The girl who pretends to be your friend with the clear intention of using you to get close to one of your friends

If you want dirt on someone, what better way than to finagle your way into their best friend's heart? Even if the intention is to merely get close to someone else, it's pretty shady to use someone's friendship.

7. Petty people who think social media is an appropriate platform for drama and confrontation

Oh you hate me? Great, say it to my face. What's the point in writing mean posts about others for all the world to see? Isn't social media for socializing aka being friendly? There's nothing to fear from these people. Wasting time expressing hate while hidden behind a computer screen portrays them oppositely to how they hoped it would—pathetic and cowardly.

8. That one overly aggressive individual on a power trip

When people get to college and they gain some sort of "position" of power, whether that be in greek life, in a club, at an internship, etc… sometimes they get the idea that makes them better than the peasants below them. As follows, they get a lot bossy and a little tyrannical. Calm down Susan, you're the president of the baking club.

9. The kid in your class who actually never knows when to shut up and gets into fights with the teacher on the reg

While these students were annoying in high school, they're particularly annoying in college. Apparently, being accepted into college means you know everything—hint, hint, it doesn't.

Moral of the story: maybe don't explore these personas? Or do—whatever floats your boat really, but you may find yourself on a list of "questionable" people.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

32560

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
