College Life According to Michelle Tanner

College Life According to Michelle Tanner

20 things she can tell us

Thanksgiving is over and now it is time to finish off the semester; Christmas is almost here! Just to get you through these next few weeks we have the famous Michelle Tanner and her wise words. College is difficult, but Michelle can explain it exactly how it is.

1. All-Nighters

Probably should've started that ten page paper awhile ago but tonight was the best idea. You need to study for a final, coffee it is.

2. Diets

The Freshman 15 is a real thing, but who likes diets anyways? You want to stay healthy and keep in shape but food is just too good.

3. Talking to parents about grades

The pressure is all too real and everyone wants you to do your best. Talking to your parents about your grades is scary, especially after a rough semester.

4. Class punctuality

That alarm didn't go off or you were doing a homework assignment. You find a way to get to class somewhat on time...hopefully.

5. Money?

You are poor, just face it, any normal college kid is. Shake your piggy bank upside down...maybe you can find some extra cash lying around. You do need some quarters for laundry.

6. Cafeteria food

It's not your momma's cooking that's for sure.

7. "Write something creative"

When your professor insists that your papers cannot be boring and need to have some excitement to them.

8. Relationships

9. Walk of Shame

It is OK act cool no one will know!

10. No homework

When the surprising and rare moment when a professor tells you that you don't have any homework. Don't ask why just accept the gift.

11. Exercise

You know you need to, somehow you get yourself to the gym and try to start working out. One pound weights sound about right, don't wanna push yourself.

12. End of the semester

You are happy that the homework has ended for a little bit and you can stop pulling out your hair. But you realize the people you live with you won't be seeing them everyday for awhile.

13. Obnoxious classmates

Those students who laugh at everything the teacher says. "Teachers pets," perhaps, and you have to deal with them for an entire semester...hopefully not more than that.

14. Visits home

Eat as much as you can get you'll never know when you will be back again. Good food must be cherished.

15. Professors who give homework over break

There is a special place in hell for professors like this. We all know they aren't doing work over break, why do we have to?

16. Weird boys trying to hang out with you

This is one of the most awkward situations when an awkward human just won't leave you alone.

17. Getting praised

Those odd moments where people thank you for something and you have no idea what they are talking about. So you take credit anyway especially if it is your professor or your parents.

18. When you're sick

It is the thought that counts, anything to try and survive the illness that has taken over your body.

19. Talking to Financial Aid

You have to do it even though no matter how much you cry you know you will never be able to get more money from them.

20. The end result

It is all worth it in the end when you get that diploma. You can survive and when it gets hard, maybe just watch a little "Full House," it's a classic.

Finish the semester strong there are only a few more weeks! The sweet taste of freedom is almost here. Michelle Tanner is always here to put a smile on your face.

It's Time To Thank Your First Roommate

Not the horror story kind of roommate, but the one that was truly awesome.

Nostalgic feelings have recently caused me to reflect back on my freshman year of college. No other year of my life has been filled with more ups and downs, and highs and lows, than freshman year. Throughout all of the madness, one factor remained constant: my roommate. It is time to thank her for everything. These are only a few of the many reasons to do so, and this goes for roommates everywhere.

You have been through all the college "firsts" together.

If you think about it, your roommate was there through all of your first college experiences. The first day of orientation, wishing you luck on the first days of classes, the first night out, etc. That is something that can never be changed. You will always look back and think, "I remember my first day of college with ____."

You were even each other's first real college friend.

You were even each other's first real college friend.

Months before move-in day, you were already planning out what freshman year would be like. Whether you previously knew each other, met on Facebook, or arranged to meet in person before making any decisions, you made your first real college friend during that process.

The transition from high school to college is not easy, but somehow you made it out on the other side.

It is no secret that transitioning from high school to college is difficult. No matter how excited you were to get away from home, reality hit at some point. Although some people are better at adjusting than others, at the times when you were not, your roommate was there to listen. You helped each other out, and made it through together.

Late night talks were never more real.

Remember the first week when we stayed up talking until 2:00 a.m. every night? Late night talks will never be more real than they were freshman year. There was so much to plan for, figure out, and hope for. Your roommate talked, listened, laughed, and cried right there with you until one of you stopped responding because sleep took over.

You saw each other at your absolute lowest.

It was difficult being away from home. It hurt watching relationships end and losing touch with your hometown friends. It was stressful trying to get in the swing of college level classes. Despite all of the above, your roommate saw, listened, and strengthened you.

...but you also saw each other during your highest highs.

After seeing each other during the lows, seeing each other during the highs was such a great feeling. Getting involved on campus, making new friends, and succeeding in classes are only a few of the many ways you have watched each other grow.

There was so much time to bond before the stresses of college would later take over.

Freshman year was not "easy," but looking back on it, it was more manageable than you thought at the time. College only gets busier the more the years go on, which means less free time. Freshman year you went to lunch, dinner, the gym, class, events, and everything else possible together. You had the chance to be each other's go-to before it got tough.

No matter what, you always bounced back to being inseparable.

Phases of not talking or seeing each other because of business and stress would come and go. Even though you physically grew apart, you did not grow apart as friends. When one of you was in a funk, as soon as it was over, you bounced right back. You and your freshman roommate were inseparable.

The "remember that one time, freshman year..." stories never end.

Looking back on freshman year together is one of my favorite times. There are so many stories you have made, which at the time seemed so small, that bring the biggest laughs today. You will always have those stories to share together.

The unspoken rule that no matter how far apart you grow, you are always there for each other.

It is sad to look back and realize everything that has changed since your freshman year days. You started college with a clean slate, and all you really had was each other. Even though you went separate ways, there is an unspoken rule that you are still always there for each other.

Your old dorm room is now filled with two freshmen trying to make it through their first year. They will never know all the memories that you made in that room, and how it used to be your home. You can only hope that they will have the relationship you had together to reflect on in the years to come.

10 Ways English Majors Are Figuratively, NOT Literally, Ted Mosby

To write or to read, that is the question all English majors must face when working on homework.


Rather you're an English major or lit major or a writing major, there are a few things that we all have in common. And if you watched "How I Met Your Mother," you probably related to Ted Mosby more than you wished to.

1. Restraining yourself for correct people's text


It's you're not your and it irritates me to no end.

2. Not understanding the difference between an English major and an English writing or English literature major


My friend from another school is an English major and I'm an English writing major. I still don't know what the difference is.

3. Having one grammar rule that you care a lot about


Whether it be "your vs. you're," "affect vs. effect," or "literally vs. figuratively," there's a good chance you go crazy throughout your day.

4. Writer's block


Especially because your grade counts on it. Although, it won't be fun when it turns into your job depending on it.

5. Having to write all genres in one class


Even though you prefer one genre and hate the others.

I don't care for nonfiction tbh.

6. Workshops


Not your best moments.

7. Knowing how impossible it is to have a favorite book


It's like picking a favorite child... but worse.

8. Feeling bad when you forget grammar rules


Are you even an English major???

9. People telling you your major is the easiest one


I get it, but at the same time, we can have a lot of work to do. We just drown in papers, reading assignments, research projects, presentations and portfolios. I still prefer it to exams and labs.

10. Figuring out life


Honestly, there's too many things I want to do for a career and I can't pick AND each one is under my major. It is a nice problem to have. But hey I can run away from making a choice until the time comes.
