Coming Back For Spring Semester As A College Student, As Told By 'Bird Box' Memes

"Listen to me, we're going on a trip now. It's going to be rough."


Winter break is over *insert sad face.* Now is the time when college students flock back to their compasses and settle in for another semester. What better movie to share in our feelings than the now wildly popular "Bird Box" starring Sandra Bullock.

When FAFSA requires all parent information.

"Everyone make sure you file your FAFSA!" That is all I've heard since Thanksgiving break in November. We do this because it's no newsflash that college is expensive, costing (minimally) a soul and a half. But what we as a whole fail to understand is why financial aid requires literally ALL of our parents' information, from when they were married to how much money they made, how much money is in the bank, and how much property they own. Then we are quoted from their profits. But for the some that don't share the profit, they are quoted much less than what they need. The struggle is real.

When you're not quite ready to come back from break.

We all know the struggle with apathy, especially when coming back from winter break. While I will agree that it's exciting to go back and see all of your college friends again, not to mention advancing further in our educational career, sometimes it's just hard doing your work again. So find a buddy to lean on because everyone could use a little help.

New textbooks!

With every new semester comes every new class, and every new professor who insists you buy their textbook for one specific page. Textbooks, textbooks, textbooks! Aside from the occasional night out or trip to the mall, this is the real reason we are all afraid to check our account balances.

Decisions, decisions: going out or staying in?

Come the weekends, many are faced with the decision of what to do. With that being said, in some college towns, the day doesn't even really start until the sun goes down. So, the question begs: do we go out, or stay in? For some it depends on what is to come the following week. If there's a test or project due, the responsible decision would be to study. But really who is responsible all of the time? Go live your life.

5. The fix from college withdrawals.

Probably not for all schools, but with WVU you can get a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich or eight count nug meal for one meal swipe. These meal swipes are how all of the freshman and some other rankings feed themselves throughout the entire semester. With limited food options, you get pretty set on what's offered to you and when it's taken away during break, you begin to miss it. I know some people who went out of their way to travel 20 minutes by bus every day to get their Chick on meal swipe and I often wonder about their symptoms and how they're holding up. At least with the return, college students everywhere can continue to indulge in their favorite fast food.

6 Places in New York City Every "Friends" Fan Needs to Visit

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

Hannah B. Named The Next Bachelorette: Get Excited!!

Roll Tide.


On the season finale of the hit reality TV show 'The Bachelor' Chris Harrison announced the new Bachelorette to be Hannah Brown, affectionately referred to as "Hannah Beast." Hannah made it far in Colton's season of the Bachelor, but hit some bumps along the way. She was involved in serious drama with costar and fellow pageant competitor Caelynn. Not only is Hannah B. known for drama and tears, she is also known for her awkward and often uncomfortable behavior around the cameras. And let's not forget the most awkward first date and toast of all time...Roll Tide!

Despite her awkward and quirky personality, I think the Alabama native is truly a sweetheart. She cannot be judged based on the controversy that took place between her and Caelynn because no one knows the full truth of the story. In my opinion, no one was completely innocent in their "cat fight" but the way in which each girl handled themselves in the resolution of this drama was mature and, quite frankly, impressive. I think Hannah B's season will be full of more tears and could potentially be very uncomfortable to watch at some moments, but at the end of the say, Hannah B. deserves to find love just like any other 'Bachelor' hopeful. It will definitely be an interesting season to watch, so get excited!!
