Every Time Drake Understands What College Life Is Really Like

Every Time Drake Understands What College Life Is Really Like

"Sweatpants, hair-tied, chillin' with no make up on..." Drake gets college life.

College can be a roller coaster sometimes, full of moments where you just don't want to keep going, you cry more than you thought you could, you get ecstatic when things actually work out, you're up all night thinking about why you're even here, but also, wouldn't trade it for the world.

Drake, my man, he can relate to our college lives perfectly. Drake's always on an emotional roller coaster ride, and as college students, we are, too (and so are our grades...).

So here's a shoutout to Drake for perfectly nailing college life.

Introducing yourself to the class on the first day

Already getting assigned homework on the first day

Pulling an all-nighter and feeling like death

Acing that exam you thought you wouldn't

Waking up before your alarm and realizing you still have time to sleep

When a teacher cancels a test or quiz that you didn't study for anyways

Taking an exam that you know you're going to fail

When you have no idea what's going on in class

When you hear some crazy gossip


Having a C in a class that finally bumps up to a B

When you're failing a class and don't know if you can even pass it

Trying to motivate yourself to get your act together

When you and your friend are both failing and know there's no hope left

Asking yourself why you're even in college

When you've spent hours writing a paper and your hand cramps up

Actually dressing in something other than basically pajamas for class

When you catch a glimpse of a cutie on campus

Having a class cancelled

When a classmate make a dumb comment in class

When your teacher catches you doing something you shouldn't be

Turning up on a Tuesday night when you know you should be studying

Regretting turning up on a Tuesday night when you're too hungover to make it to class

When it's the weekend and you plan to get way too drunk

Regretting the things you did drunk the next day

Going out with your squad

Falling asleep in class and you have to keep waking yourself up

Trying your best to survive your semester while you're dying inside

When finals week is approaching...

Finally being done with the semester and not looking back

To The Teacher Who Was So Much More

Thank you for everything

I think it's fair to say that most people remember at least one teacher who had a lasting impact on them. I have been incredibly lucky to have several teachers who I will never forget, but one individual takes the cake. So here's to you: thank you for all you have done.

Thank you for teaching me lessons not just in the textbook.

Although you taught a great lecture, class was never just limited to the contents of the course. Debates and somewhat heated conversations would arise between classmates over politics and course material, and you always encouraged open discussion. You embraced the idea of always having an opinion, and always making it be heard, because why waste your voice? You taught me to fight for things I believed in, and to hold my ground in an argument. You taught me to always think of others before doing and speaking. You showed me the power of kindness. Thank you for all the important lessons that may not have been included in the curriculum.

Thank you for believing in me.

Especially in my senior year, you believed in me when other teachers didn't. You showed me just what I could accomplish with a positive and strong attitude. Your unwavering support kept me going, especially when I melted into a puddle of tears weekly in your office. You listened to my stupid complaints, understood my overwhelming stress-induced breakdowns, and told me it was going to be okay. Thank you for always being there for me.

Thank you for inspiring me.

You are the epitome of a role model. Not only are you intelligent and respected, but you have a heart of gold and emit beautiful light where ever you go. You showed me that service to others should not be looked at as a chore, but something to enjoy and find yourself in. And I have found myself in giving back to people, thanks to your spark. Thank you for showing me, and so many students, just how incredible one person can be.

Thank you for changing my life.

Without you, I truly would not be where I am today. As cliche as it sounds, you had such a remarkable impact on me and my outlook on life. Just about a year has passed since my graduation, and I'm grateful to still keep in touch. I hope you understand the impact you have made on me, and on so many other students. You are amazing, and I thank you for all you have done.

An Open Letter To Myself At 15

This is an open letter to myself about things I wish I had known at 15.


Dear Hailey,

You are so loved. I know times might be hard, but it will all be okay. It's okay to ride the fence and be unsure of what you want to do with your life. You're going to change your mind 10 more times before graduation anyways. Also, don't worry about all of the things that you can't change. You can't make someone fall in love with you or make her treat you like a better friend. It's okay for people not to fit in your life. Stop bending over backward for people and live for yourself. In a few years, you will go through so much, but you come out on the better side. You are going to be successful and driven. Also, learn what the meaning of "self-care" is. You need to do a lot of that in the upcoming years. Mental health is more important than anything. Also, quit cutting your baby hairs. They will never get longer so you need to embrace and love them early on. Figure out what you can change, and what you cannot. Most importantly, accept what you cannot change. When you decide that you are ready to face the things that you can change, do it with your whole heart. That doesn't mean complete perfection. It's important to know the difference. Start by making a plan for the future. Write it down, memorize it, do whatever makes it the easiest for you. Think through your plan logically, take into consideration your strengths and weaknesses. Remember to do the hard things first once in a while, the relief is sweet in the end.

You are ready.

You are young.

You are smart.

You are beautiful.

If you ever feel that you are at your lowest point, just remember the only place that you can go is up. Find reassurance in the weakness. The best is yet to come. Don't take pity on yourself. Instead, work harder to make your situation better. Be happy. There are so many things to be thankful for. Ask when you need help. No one can read your mind. Time won't stop for you. Worrying and stressing is simply a waste of time. Be strong and know that you are in God's hands. Everything will work out. It may not be today or tomorrow, but eventually, the pieces will fall into place and you will understand why things had to happen that way.
