15 College Experiences As Told By 'Sex And The City'

The undeniable friendship between the "Sex and the City" girls and the memories they share embody that of your college career.

15 College Experiences As Told By 'Sex And The City'

The epitome of fashion statements and life lessons come from the well-known TV show "Sex and the City." As Carrie Bradshaw, Samantha Jones, Charlotte Goldenblatt, and Miranda Hobbes discuss their love and sex lives, people from around the world related to their daily challenges. Today, college students can certainly associate their college life to the struggles disclosed in the show.

1. Sleeping in & wearing pajamas to a morning class.

The only way I endured my first week of college is by not only wearing pajamas to my morning classes but by also continuing to wear them for the rest of the day. This way, those midday naps can really count towards your valuable sleep hours.

2. Being determined enough to go to class, but then falling asleep and waking up lost.

Hey! At least I got up and went to class! Moral of the story is sleep as much as you can BEFORE class.

3. Boys. Just boys.

College hookups. College one night stands. College relationships. Whatever you may call your "thing," please acknowledge that we are all stressing about the same thing: why did he leave me on read on Snapchat?!?

4. Tiny, insufficient closets.

Need I say more? I only brought my "summer clothes" to college thus far and it has been quite a struggle finding room for my Soffe shorts, jean shorts, skirts, dresses, rompers, and the innumerable amount of accessories I just needed to schlep with me. Tip: Buy a portable closet rack!

5. Meeting different people.

Throughout your life, you will meet all kinds of unique people! Embrace your differences! Remember that all individuals come from various backgrounds with contrasting cultures. Use your college experience to open your eyes to the rest of the world!!

6. When you know you look good and you're ready to go out.

Let me see that catwalk, and flaunt what you got! When you can confidently walk into a party, you know it's going to be a good night. Enjoy it and remember that it's more than okay to "never be the woman with the perfect hair who can wear white and not spill on it" -Carrie Bradshaw.

7. Working out after a stressful day.

Bear in mind that you will feel less stressed after a workout! Grab your friends and go for a run (catch up on all the details of last weekend's frat party).

8. Going to parties (every other week, if not every week).

My one piece of advice is to always and I mean ALWAYS stick together at parties! Oh and have fun, don't be embarrassed to hit that dance floor!

10. Overlooking all your work that is due.

Take into account that college isn't all about meeting new friends and having a blast, consider opening a book and studying! You worked your butt off to get to where you are, don't stop!

11. Staying in and gossiping with your roommates.

Because one GIF wasn't enough...

12. Lack of privacy.

If you are dorming, say bye to privacy--there just won't be any more alone time.

13. Meeting up with your high school besties!

Oh, how I'm looking forward to this day!

14. The people who act as though they are still stuck in high school.

On the first day of college, my roommates and I walked outside to be glared at by eight girls wearing matching outfits; though we wouldn't dare be intimidated by these souls, they have all the freedom to dress the way they please. I only hope that they are respectful to others.

15. Making everlasting friendships

I'm so thankful that I have made amazing connections with people and it has just been the start of my freshman year!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
