College Life As Told By 'Jane The Virgin'

College Life As Told By 'Jane The Virgin'

Thanks Jane Villenueva... You rock

Here's what college life is like explained the hit TV series "Jane the Virgin." These many examples are what our daily life is actually like... Thanks, Jane, Xo, Alba and the whole crew...

1. The day you leave for college

This is the day your mother tells you to be careful no matter what happens from this day forward.

2. Frist week of school

When it's so hot out that you can't even sleep in your own clothes at the night time...

3. First day of classes

You're the one person who makes the most noise when it's your first day of classes for the semester.

4. First test

When you ace your first test...

5. $$$

When you realize you have zero dollars in your bank account... you're officially a broke college student

6. Sunday morning

Well, this explains everyone's Sunday morning just as Jane would... Saturday's are rough nights in college.

7. 8 a.m.

When you miss your first 8 a.m...

8. Food

All Jane and her mom want is grilled cheese.... so do us college students 24/7.

10. The night before

When you see the boy/ girl you got with last night...

11. Midterms

The most stressful week of your life consists of you not wanting to socialize.

12. Family

First time seeing your family in a few months since they left you for your first day of college

13. Finals Week

Thank goodness it's over...Petra was at least happy in her case.

Well, If Petra survived the birth of her children and Jane accompanying her then I guess we all can survive...Hope you all enjoyed!!!

I’m Not Scared Of What I Don’t Know, Not Anymore

My outlook on the unknown has changed considerably. I’m glad I can say that I’m not scared of what I don’t know anymore.

So many people want to know my plan for my whole entire life. It’s as if, by the time you enter college, you have to know your entire life story: who you’re going to marry, where you’re going to work, how many kids you’re going to have... the list goes on.

Trying to answers these unrealistic questions used to bring on a lot of anxiety into my heart. I would frequently obsess over who I would become and what my future would look like. I would try to plot out every move I needed to make to get where I see myself going. And, I would spend long hours contemplating my purpose and where my dreams would take me. I would give myself panic attacks worrying about what I don’t know.

It seems like a lot of pressure to ask a 20-year-old kid what their next 60 to 80 years are going to look like. Plus, how can I possibly know? It is unrealistic to ask a 20-year-old kid about their life plan.

God throws a lot of curveballs.

I have heard story after story of people who woke up one day with a new call on their tongue that they had never considered before. People are constantly changing, growing, moving, and discovering.

Some of my favorite life stories involve the way God calls on the hearts of some to join Him in a life of vocation to the priesthood. I love hearing about the men who woke up one day and experienced the Lord’s call to become a priest. AND THEN RAN FROM IT. But, God chased them down and eventually their hearts were softened to His call, and they submitted to His will and His plan for their lives.

These stories inspire me.

My outlook on the unknown has changed considerably. Prayer and patience have calmed the storm of my sometimes overwhelming desire to know what the future holds.Trust in the Lord works. And I’m glad I can say that I’m not scared of what I don’t know anymore.

God knows what I don’t know. And honestly, it’s comforting to feel Him actively leading me to slowly discover more and more about my plan. I’m just not worried anymore. Trying to write the perfect plan for my life is pointless. Four years at college, three years at law school, practicing here, living there, loving him, wanting this many kids. Why plan it all out?

My perfect plan probably isn’t God’s perfect plan. Who knows where He will lead my heart. Who knows what will change my plan. Who knows what will become a stepping stone for my life.

Instead of planning, for now, I am making it a priority to focus on living. Because I’m not scared of what I don’t know, I get to strive to live fully devoted to the Lord and what He DOES know.

Things will fall into place. I can still strive to do the things I want, while also not worrying about what lies ahead.

God will lead the way.

How To Enjoy Your Summer Before Freshman Year Of College

Make It Count.

Congratulations! You have officially made it through high school! Whether it was the best or worst four years of life, it is all over now. This is your last summer at home, so you have to make it last. But, how do you experience a lifetime of events in just a few short weeks? Well, hopefully some of these tips help you to enjoy this special summer before you go off to college.

Do not get caught up in drama.

There is always going to be drama, but high school is over. You are all moving into a new chapter. No need to dwell on silly little things that won't matter in a few months. You should be enjoying your summer with everyone that you care about.

Work, work, work!

Although you want to party all day in the summer and go to the beach, I am telling you that you should definitely work as much as you can. I totally underestimated the amount of money you spend in college. You don't want to be the broke college kid first semester because you didn't work over the summer and now you can't do anything fun at school. Those extra hours will be worth it.

Accept the truth.

The day you graduate, you will immediately realize who you're going to be staying in contact with. It is natural to fall off the grid with some people, so do not take it personally. Enjoy your summer with the people you care most about and who will reach out to you as well.

Spend time with your family.

As much as you are probably itching to get away from them, don't forget about them this summer. They deserve some of your attention as well. Go get some ice cream with them or just enjoy a family dinner. Whatever you decide to do, remember that you won't be able to do this with them in a few weeks.

Make a list of your favorite spots and be sure to visit them.

Go to your bagel shop for the last time and get your favorite sandwich. Go to the park and play soccer with your friends. Whatever things you cherish in your town, visit them for the last time, for you will surely miss all of these things. I know I made quite a few trips to my favorite restaurants before I left, and I really could go for a nice slice of pizza right now.

Start packing for college ASAP.

Packing for college is no joke. It is not something you can do the night before. Make a list of things you use in your daily life and add to it every day. Take note of what clothes you wear most often, for those are the ones you will be bringing with you. Pack a little each day so you are not doing it for the full 24 hours before you leave for school.

Have fun!

Enjoy this little time where you don't have any responsibilities or duties. It is your last chance to hang out with all of your friends and enjoy your home town before you pack up and leave. College is a great place, but don't forget to live in the moment and enjoy what you have. Because before you know it, you'll be sitting in a dorm, wishing for the summer before freshman year back.
