College Student Stereotypes

College Student Stereotypes

Common Stereotypes that surrounded College Students.

There are several college student stereotypes out there in the world. While there are stereotypes that I am guilty of there are others that I’m not.

  1. College students love free things.

This one I will cough up to. I love free things. (Majority of the time). But who doesn’t love free things? Free things are great.

2. College students are exhausted both mentally and physically.

College is hard. While I get a lot of sleep, a lot of college students do not. An average college student probably gets five or six hours of sleep. A lot of energy is put into school. Students try to balance school, sports, sleep, work, and a social life. It’s not easy

3. Poor college students.

I can speak from experience. I don’t have a lot money to toss around. There are times where I’ll have extra money to be able to do things, but other times I’m just scraping by

4. College students and Netflix.

Honestly, I would rather watch Netflix than study of an exam. Netflix can be my best friend, but it’s also my worst enemy. One of the ways I reduce stress is by going on Netflix. It’s a great distraction for me. But I know when I have to buckle down, put the Netflix away, and do my homework.

5. College students party every night.

I’m not into the party scene. I’m judging anyone that is, but not all college students party. For me, why go to a party when I can sleep, eat food, or watch Netflix. I either do that, or I just hang out with my friends where we pretty much do the same thing

6. College students sleep all the time.

Most nights, I do get enough sleep if I’m honest, but naps are also my best friend when I don't. I know a lot of people that don’t get a lot of sleep. Their average is about four hours a night. I give them so many props to be able to run on four or five hours of sleep. Honestly, I wouldn’t be able to do that. I can barely run on six or seven hours of sleep.

7. College students wear sweats all the time.

Honestly, sweats are super comfortable, and I wouldn’t mind wearing sweats a lot. This year, I find myself wearing more causal wear than anything, but nevertheless, sweats are my go to clothes. College students do wear sweats a lot, but we also dress causal or nice just as much.

8. College students are lazy

While this may be true for some, for most, it’s far from the truth. Most people work their butts off in college. We might procrastinate from time to time, but majority, if not all, do this at some point during their education. I value my education, and want to get a degree.

There are a lot of stereotypes that surround college students. Some students might fall into these stereotypes while others don’t. College students are the same. We’re all different.

Lil Yachty's 'Lil Boat 2' May Not Be Enough To Keep Him Afloat

Here's what you need to know about "Lil Boat 2."

On March 9, Lil Yachty dropped his newest album, “Lil Boat 2.” The album consists of 17 songs, most of which were probably better off not being on the album and seriously failed to impress me, despite its early success on iTunes.

In all of the reviews I have ever written, I normally organize it song-by-song, giving feedback to each track. This time, however, I think I can save all of us time on this article by just being completely honest about Lil Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”

Most of the songs from 1-10 on the tracklist are NOT worth listening to.

Other than those three, every other song from the top ten songs on the tracklist were absolute garbage.

The beats to the songs weren’t that bad but, overall, it just sounded like Lil Yachty and his features were WAY too high to be in the studio.

Yachty’s flows, bars and rhyme schemes were ALL weak throughout the entire album, and if it weren’t for the final six songs on “Lil Boat 2,” this review would be nothing but bashing Lil Yachty.

From the 12th track on the album, "MICKEY" (ft. Offset, Lil Baby) the album runs through much more smoothly, regardless of how basic those last couple of songs are.

I imagine Lil Yachty’s fanbase consists mostly of teenagers who eat Tide for Internet views and anybody who knows nothing about what a real rapper is.

Seriously. I cannot stress how elementary this album is. If you’re looking for new rap music to listen to, check out Tory Lanez’s album, “MEMORIES DON’T DIE,” or Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino II.”

Both of those albums are so much better than “Lil Boat 2” that they make Yachty look like an amateur — which he is.

Final Score: 5.8/10

Did Draco Malfoy Ever Get The Clout He Deserved?

Yes, he was literally the worst for a majority of the series. But does this one moment make up for it all?

The new trailer for the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series just dropped and I have a LOT of feelings. Mainly:

With the release of this new trailer, the only natural thing to do is to binge watch the "Harry Potter" series. Now, if you don’t know about "Harry Potter" series, I’m going to assume that you were born literally minutes ago. For those of you who do know what I’m talking about, let’s chat.

Throughout the series, we see some pretty rotten witches, wizards and muggles. The worst being Bellatrix LeStrange, in my opinion.

*Side note: Voldemort killed meticulously and with his own “reasoning” that supported his actions. Bellatrix killed for sport. No reason was necessary to support her choices. Regardless of who I thought was worse, it doesn’t change the fact that they were both 100% assholes.*

Throughout the movie, and even more so throughout the book, we are able to see slight character arcs for a majority of these lesser-evil villains, such as Petunia Dursley, Narcissa Malloy, Snape, and Draco Malfoy.

After Snape, Draco had one of the biggest character arcs in the series. He saved Harry and, ultimately, through his actions, gave Harry one last chance to defeat Voldemort. How? Well, Pottermore explains it best, but to put it simply, he refused to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione up to Bellatrix and the Snatchers.

This moment is so pivotal and apparent in the books, yet on screen, while it’s still a huge moment, it still gets downplayed. The weight of the moment isn’t truly felt and could be taken as more of a mistake on Malfoy’s part. That moment, if not understood correctly, could change many viewers' opinions about Draco's transformation from elitist, bigot, selfish snob to a (slightly) unknowingly ignorant, scared, defeated teen.

Damnit, J.K. Rowling, you’ve done it again. Even after all these years, somehow I still always seem to find something new.

Now let’s talk about how the new movie will allow the Ministry to apparate onto Hogwarts?!
