College Life, As Told By 'New Girl'

All the emotions and weirdness together in one show.

College Life, As Told By 'New Girl'

College is weird, emotional, and sometimes completely ridiculous which is why no one can relate better than the cast of New Girl. (If you have yet to watch this hilarious series I totally recommend it).

Jess, Nick, Schmidt, and Winston are adults in their early thirties who share a loft while all dealing with individual relationship and career choices. Although none of this sounds relatable to college life, New Girl demonstrates that maturing continues to happen even years after graduation.

Unfortunately this means that the struggles you are faced with today, may or may not still be there in 10 years. For now, we can just focus on college life as described by the characters in New Girl.

Indecision and bad decisions haunt every college student

As college students, we're faced with daily decision, some more crucial than others, but all equally difficult.

Responsibility is an avoided subject

What do you mean I have to cook, clean, and do laundry for myself?

Everyone is mentally and emotionally exhausted

Some might admit it more than others, but everyone is struggling with the exhaustion of college.

It is nearly impossible to go an entire semester without crying at least once

And sometimes it is imposible to get through the week without a few tears, trust me it's normal.

When something goes right, we want to celebrate

Like passing a difficult exam or not procrastinating on homework.

Secretly hoping you'll cross paths with that cute guy

Then awkwardly saying hi when you make eye contact,

There is nothing wrong with spending the day binge watching Netflix

You need a break every once in awhile.

We're all trying to live our life without gaining too much weight

The freshman fifteen still exists sophomore, junior, and senior year.

Giving advice to others may or may not be our specialty

Even if we don't listen to our own advice, we love to give it to others.

Alone time is what keeps us sane

We all need that "me time" to keep us from going insane.

We're all just trying to figure out this whole growing up thing

If you think someone has their life all together in college, they're probably just really good at pretendin.

College is a weird place, but we've accepted it

At least we have each other to share in the weirdness.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
