Actually, Being Single In College Isn't Such A Bad Thing

People make college out to be the place where you find your 'person', and I just don't think that's accurate

Actually, Being Single In College Isn't Such A Bad Thing
Cassidy Garren

You always hear stories about people finding their person in college, and going straight to getting married and having kids directly when they graduate, but that is just something I don't want to do and I feel like is just not realistic in these days. I feel like this time in your life is the time that you need to branch out and focus on yourself and what you want instead of trying to find the person you feel you need to complete yourself. It is important to fully find your own self and be happy with who you are before you try to find someone else.

Another reason I feel like long term relationships should hold off till after college is that when else in your life are you going to be able to go out and be wild with your friends without someone holding you back? College is the time to make memories and be wild and crazy; because after college you have to become a real adult, why waste these few years being tied down to someone when you have your entire life to be with someone and be a real adult.

With all this being said if you find someone in college who fully feels like the right person, you should be with them, but make sure they let you be your own person and branch out too. Don't be with someone who doesn't let you have your own space and your own friends, because, trust me, you will fully regret it when you miss out on the best years of your life. I know it might feel like you will have them forever, but honestly the friends you make and memories you have will be the things you will actually have forever, no matter what happens.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university.
