'Legally Blonde'

No matter how many articles you read online to prepare yourself for college, there's not one article that can truly tell you what the college experience is like. You think you're going to be like Elle Woods. Kill it in all your classes, workout while studying, become close with your professors, meet a cute older guy, and whatever else. In reality, no matter how smart you are you're going to be stressed more than you've ever been. It is really hard to have a steady workout routine with different class times, exams to study for, and honestly just finding the motivation. You'll be lucky if the professors even remember your name in their lecture of 200+ students. Most of the boys you'll meet are immature and just want to mess around. You also meet best friends who will last a lifetime. You will have fun stories to hide from your parents. You will be learning about what you actually choose to learn about and get to start doing what you want to be doing for the rest of your life. College is a rollercoaster, but it's one that you will be sad about when the ride is over.

1. When you check your e-mail and see that the prof cancelled class

YES! Back to bed.

2. After taking one intro to Criminal Justice course

I object!

3. When you've been studying math all day and still don't know anything

Raise your hand if you've ever felt personally victimized by math.

4. Studying late the night before your exam because you're ~procrastinaty af~

...and you still do well so it's a win-win... kinda.

5. When the professor calls out the class a**hole

Finally, someone did it.

6. Two weeks into a new semester when all you have left in your backpack is one almost-dead pen, a dirty wrapped piece of gum, and random pages in your lit notebook

I forgot to bring a pencil to my Spanish final freshman year. A pencil.

7. Taking tests during midterms and finals like

Yeah, too bad myself sucks!

8. When you don't make the Dean's List

I mean Steve Jobs dropped out so not making the Dean's List isn't even a big deal, right?

9. Trying to convince yourself to workout 

...and then continuing to binge-watch Netflix instead.

10. When you and your friends are all finally happy with their outfits to go out

... one hour after you planned on leaving.

11. When you get all ready and end up being denied at a frat party 

Who cares if I'm not on the list? I'm EXTREMELY likeable. It's HUGE.

12. Being sad when Jack from Sigma Beta Phi doesn't snap you after last night 

Honey, he probably doesn't even remember your name. Move on.

13. When the bouncer asks you questions about your ID

I didn't memorize this for nothing, this is my moment.

14. Not knowing what to say when you're talking to a cute guy at a bar

Call me!

15. When your friends ask if you want to get food after going out but you just want to go to bed

"I have a mac 'n cheese cup in my room."

16. "How do you drink so much and still do well in classes?"

Time management is key.

17. When your friends refuse to go out with you on a Tuesday night

"We'll only go out for an hour."

18. Graduation

I personally haven't graduated yet, but I know when I do I will definitely cry during my last Jump Around as a student.

College is a learning experience both academically and socially. The key to success is learning good time management, learning how to be independent, and having fun!

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
