21 Times The Grinch Was Actually Just A College Student Trying To Survive

Who knew I could possibly relate to a hairy green man so much?

Growing up, The Grinch was one of my all-time favorite holiday movies. (Fun fact: Did you know the actress who played Cindy Loo Who is now a kick-butt lead singer in a rock band? You go Taylor.) Now, I feel like I relate to the fuzzy green grump on a deeply spiritual level.

1. Looking around your classes the start of each semester


I'm surrounded by peasants.

2. Procrastinating everything ever

I'll start at five.

3. Learning there won't be a curve


Excuse me? Rude.

4. Eating when you have nothing else to do


I'm not even hungry right now but I'm still eating.

5. Still procrastinating


Just a little longer, let me check Instagram one last time.

6. Tell yourself you'll try to be fit


To work off all of that bored eating.

7. When no one will come get food with you


I'm independent, I don't need no one.

8. When you and your friend both tank that test you didn't study for


10. Laying in bed contemplating if college is even worth it


Is it too late to drop out?

11. When your friend asks you to go out but you know you probably shouldn't.

My bank account and my planner say no.

12. Trying on multiple outfits anyway


I'll just humor them it's fine.

13. Not finding an outfit you like enough


I have NO cute clothes.

14. Telling yourself you deserve a night out

It's just one night, I deserve this.

15. But then running into your ex later that night


SHOTS ON ME Y'ALL!

16. Confessing your love to all your friends the more you drink

I just love you guys so much.

17. When the shots and your feelings hit at the same time

I HATE THEM! JK I LOVE THEM, I NEED MORE BOOZE.

18. When your roommate comes in to wake you up the next morning

Go. Away.

19. Listening to your friends talk about the cringe-worthy things you did the night before

Please stop talking, I'd rather not know.

20. Coping with your hungover regret

21. Determining you're never going out ever again


At least not until next week that is.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

It will be okay, eventually.

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
