College Life, As Told By 'Scream Queens'

College is a killer.

College Life, As Told By 'Scream Queens'

College is a roller coaster. It's somehow simultaneously the best time of your life ... and the hardest. But no matter how many exams you have, no matter how many instant noodle cups you need to consume and no matter how early your morning classes are: college could always be worse. In Fox's newest hit horror/comedy television show, "Scream Queens," the glamorous, catty, and sometimes psychotic members of the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority have to try to get through college while they also try not to get brutally killed by a mysterious Red Devil. Let's just all be thankful that we don't have any serial murderers on campus – just some religious zealots who yell at us for wearing tank tops.

Here's college life, as told by the characters of "Scream Queens":

When you walk in late to class and everyone turns to stare at you:

When your professor announces that there's no homework this week:

When you aren't sure exactly how the generation before you learned anything without Wikipedia or Smartphones:

When you realize it's 11 p.m. and you have six different assignments due at midnight:

You get used to college "meals" like Ramen ... or a hearty helping of nothing:

When the professor praises you for raising your hand and answering a question correctly:

When someone sits in your unofficial assigned seat that you've been sitting in all semester:

When you're finally getting a good night's sleep and you suddenly remember that you have an assignment due in the morning:

When you somehow pass a test by the skin of your teeth when you thought you definitely bombed it:

Or the opposite, when you failed an exam you thought you did well on:

When you realize you can't go out with all your friends because you have to be a responsible adult and do your homework instead:

When your professor refuses to curve the grade for a test that every student failed:

When you're forced to work with random partners for a group project:

When one of your randomly assigned group partners always has an excuse as to why they don't have their portion of the work done:

When the group project is over and you never have to talk to your group partners ever again:

When all you can think about the entire time you're in class is how you can't wait to eat when class is over:

When you spend all night working on a project and finally submit it at 11:59 p.m. and promptly die of exhaustion one second later:

When the professor tells a joke but you're still salty about how much homework you have so you refuse to laugh:

When the professor gets off topic and lectures on things that won't be on the exam:

When you make the mistake of venturing into a bathroom on campus:

When the professor is looking around for someone to call on and you're sitting there silently hoping he picks anyone but you:

When the professor was about to let you out early but a million students raise their hands with questions:

When you finally get dismissed from a class full of people you absolutely hate:

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

The invention of photography

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
