The Average College Week As Told By 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia'

College experiences differ from person to person, depending on personality, school, friends, extracurriculars, etc. But being a college student, no matter the individual, can usually be defined by a busy schedule, loads of schoolwork, worrying about jobs and the future, and of course, setting aside some time for fun.

But for those of you non-college audience members out there who just don't know what it's like, here's a breakdown of a week in the life of your average college student:

Monday:

Surviving class.

It's Monday. You force yourself out of bed ten minutes before class and question why you thought it would be a good idea to start every week this semester with an 8 am. You sit in class replaying the regretful events of the weekend in your head. You're wondering how you're going to finish that 5-page philosophy paper for Wednesday, get a decent grade on that photography assignment for Thursday, and make your life seem decent for that internship interview tomorrow.

Happy Monday, folks.

Tuesday:

Smoke and mirrors, baby.

You took a shower. You brushed your hair. You put on the nicest outfit you own. They don't need to know what you did this past weekend. These Craigslist people are top-notch, and you gotta impress them.

You stepped into that future employer's office. You bullshitted your way through an interview. You thought the excessive thumbs up were an excellent idea. The interviewer only gave you three weird looks throughout the entire course of the interview.

You finished the paper. Heck yes.

"I only stayed up till 2:30." Not a bad day.

Wednesday:

Being forced to go outdoors.

You just found out that you have to do the photography assignment outside in nature, which is a shame because you just took a bunch of half-assed pictures in your dorm room and were more than okay with the minimal amount of effort.

You also don't remember the last time you spent more than five minutes outside. That's not necessarily a bad thing, is it?

Thursday:

You failed the paper.

How did the professor grade these so fast? Was your paper even read? Or were you just labeled as a failure from the start? Accurate.

But wait... there's good news.

You got the internship! Take that, thumbs-up haters!

It might be because you're the only one who applied, and this business might not be exactly what it says it is. But who cares?

Friday:

You bombed your philosophy paper, you were forced to go outdoors, you might be working for an illegal organization, and you and your friends got written up.

But honestly, you're ready to do it all again next week.

Wait...doesn't the week start on Sunday and not Monday?... Alright, clean slate!

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

1019
JMackeazy

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Sinning in Las Vegas

Be careful what you do and post

Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.
