College Life As Told By Reality TV Stars

Welcome to college life, kiddos! Prepare yourself for a never ending sea of essays and assignments, fatty dining hall food, going broke, never getting enough sleep, and the best memories you will make. Now that summer is over and the dreaded month of September is finally upon us, we have to resume our life at our home away from home. We love college, but let's be honest, sometimes it kicks us right in the ass. College life can sometimes get the best of us, even though it's "the best four years of our lives."

During my college career, I've noticed I'm starting to relate to reality TV stars WAY more than I'd ever thought I would. Don't be alarmed; I don't mean I'm drinking a bottle of wine every night in my monogrammed Prada bathrobe and getting into cat fights at dinner parties. Instead, I've noticed that the things I find myself and my friends saying every day, sounds a lot like reality TV stars. If these stars had gone to college alongside us, I imagine their reactions to college life would fit right in.

Sleep is your best friend.

Any class before 10 a.m. is a total killer.

You meet so many people, it's hard to keep track.

There's one day of class every week known as your "death day."

Sometimes, you go a little crazy on the weekends.

You're forced to take core classes that you don't want.

You wish you could just ignore all your problems.

Some days, social interaction is just too hard.

You learn (or at least try) not to sweat the small stuff.

Saturday's are your safe haven.

This comes out of your mouth at least once a day ...

There comes a point in the semester where it seems like there is no hope for your grades ...

But somehow you always manage to pull through.

Yes, college life can be hard, but at least rich, middle-aged housewives know exactly how we feel.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

74 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

Two women's hands with their small fingers interlocking

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
