10 Thoughts Every Germaphobe Has When Going To College, Which Is A Death Trap

10 Thoughts Every Germaphobe Has When Going To College, Which Is A Death Trap

Germs are evil, I know, but germs are the WORST at college.


I think I might die this Fall in a germ coma. I already have a bottle of Purell for my desk and mini hand sanitizers on my backpack. Oh, and four containers of Lysol.

1. Share... a bathroom... with OTHER people?? Oh my God


Sharing a bathroom with family members is already hard enough. Now add in other people's butts and pee.

2. I have to touch the doorknob... to open the bathroom door when leaving... after I ALREADY washed my hands


The worst part is... there are no paper towels to open the door.

3. I have to touch food ladles 400 other people have touched in the last hour???


Good thing I attached hand sanitizer to my backpack.

4. I have to shake ALL of these people's hands?


Again, hand sanitizer, please never run out.

5. Oh no. Shared showers. Oh NO. There's hair EVERYWHERE. o h n o.


Sharing a shower with my sister was a struggle. Now I have about 40 other new sisters. Eek.

6. When can I get my own apartment??


Seriously, I'm dying over here.

7. Mom... Dad... yeah can you Venmo me $5 for spray Lysol?


I need it a.s.a.p.

8. Please. Please. Please. Do NOT touch things in my dorm room.


Especially not makeup or moisturizers.

9. Hi, mom, uh, can you venmo me $7 for Bath and Bodyworks hand sanitizer?


I NEED more.

10. Why is the person behind me AND next to me coughing? Oh God. I need to bathe myself in alcohol.


Please, don't get me sick.

Every germaphobe will freak out at college on multiple occasions, so hopefully non-germaphobes have an idea of what is going on in our brain. Be nice to fellow germaphobes.

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on


I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63


If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb


This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires


I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)


I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine


This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
