The Month Of April For A College Girl, As Told By April Ludgate

Possibly the best and worst month out of the whole school year.

The Month Of April For A College Girl, As Told By April Ludgate

It's that time of year again. The birds are singing, the teachers are trying to squeeze in that last test before finals, and everyone is excited for school to end. It's disgusting.

1. Once the weather starts to clear up and the sun starts shining. 


Give my pale, melanin-lacking skin a break.

2. Everyone is annoying because they have nothing better to do. 


Something about that April air makes people go coo-coo.

3. You just. can't. deal. anymore. 


The days are getting longer and my patience is getting shorter. Day drinking it is.

4. But you still have to apply for big-girl jobs for after graduation.


I'm just trying to make my resume make me sound way more impressive than I actually am.

5. And look at apartments.


These are the important questions we need to be asking.

6. You realize adulting is difficult.


7. And expensive.


My future motto is 'the cheaper the better'.

8. Finishing your final papers is impossible.


And I can't wake up.

9. Everything hurts and you're tired.


I don't have money to buy coffee but I need coffee to function and do the things.

10. But you're trying to be optimistic.


Just survive.

11. And there's always a backup plan...


Free food. Free bed. Free friends. Just saying.

12. Everyone is sick.


Get away from me demons.

13. By the end of the school year, you'll do anything for some extra cash.


I may or may not have looked into how much foot pics would pay... don't judge.

14. Everyone is either really mean or really nice.


The end of the school year brings up a lot of emotions. I don't like emotions.

15. But at least graduation's in sight.


Bye losers. See you never.

I relate to April from 'Parks & Rec' on a personal level. Whether that's despising human contact or having to do actual work, her and I are pretty much the same.

Welcome April. I can't wait to get you over with.

From 3 To 89, Ages Referenced In Taylor Swift Songs

Are you at one of the ages mentioned in Taylor Swift's songs?

Before Taylor Swift's transition from a country/pop sweetheart to a crazed vengeful victim, I was a huge fan of hers. I've been listening to her music for as long as I can remember.

Over the years, as an observant T Swift fan, I've noticed her penchant for mentioning ages in her songs. Maybe she does this so she can look back on these songs and remember how old she was when she had these experiences. Or maybe she does it so her fans have another level to relate to her on. For at least my past seven birthdays, I've checked to see if Taylor Swift mentioned my new age in one of her songs.

Reasons Why You Don't Fit Into Your Generation

For those who have always felt a little out of place.

puzzle pieces representing not fitting in this generation

Throughout my entire young adult life, I have never truly felt like I could connect with most people my age. Parents and teachers have said things like: "you're such an old soul" or "you're wise beyond your years," and all I know is that I don't seem to fit into my generation. Recently, there has been a lot of controversy as to whether or not my generation is lazy and unappreciative. While I do not think this is totally true, I do have a problem with the way many people my age present themselves in society. This being said, I am not sure if I am more upset with my generation or the group of people I have been forced to be associated with during this time of adolescence; for if things change when we enter the next phase of life, I might feel differently about "my generation".
