Is College Going By Wicked Fast For Anybody Else?

Why do I feel like I just started but also that I am going to end in a good five seconds?

When I started college, I never realized how fast it was really going to go by. I always compared the length to high school naturally because it was 4 years long, and it felt like high school dragged on and on.

But then when I came to college, I began to figure out how four years is actually not that long at all. As a sophomore, we all started talking about housing for junior year legit the first month of the first semester! So, then I began to think wow housing for junior year and then after that is senior year…and it's just super weird to this about.

Of course, everyone is always talking about how after you graduate high school you get thrown into the real world and you must start acting like an adult. But you really don't do anything in college either. Sure, you have some heavy papers and exams but also you are off on your own for the first time living with a bunch of your friends and doing whatever you want. How serious can college get?

But then I begin to think about life after college, now that is some serious business. You genuinely go into the real world unless you choose to go to grad school, law school, or med school. You must figure out a job, a place, to live, and just basically the rest of your life. Am I being dramatic? Yes. But does being less dramatic make it any less scary? NO.

I guess the point of all of this is under disbelief that high school felt like 500 years and college is going by in the blink of an eye. It's strange how being a sophomore in college makes me feel like I'm almost done and being a sophomore in college made it feel like it was never going to end. Some would bring up the argument that college goes by faster because we are having more fun, but I would discredit that argument because I really loved high school as well.

College coming to an end means that I am going to be thrust into the real world an expected to know what is going on, and I just don't. I also think that nobody else really knows either, so I am finding some comfort in knowing that.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
