10 Ways College Is 100 Percent NOTHING Like High School

10 Ways College Is 100 Percent NOTHING Like High School

2. Once a day showers go to dry shampoo for four days straight

As a college freshman well into their second semester, it has officially occurred to me just how different, and often times better, college is compared to its predecessor, high school.

Here are just 10 ways the two could not be MORE different:

1. How you sleep

You'll go from waking up three hours before school to three minutes before class

2. How you hygiene

Once-a-day showers develop into dry shampoo for four days straight

3. How you eat

Pizza goes from a once-in-a-while treat to an everyday food group

4. How you socialize

You'll go from being nice to everyone to disliking people for no reason

5. How much effort you put into your appearance

High school contour was on fleek and now there's somehow mascara on your forehead

6. How you nap

Naps go from two hours to 10 minutes

7. How you operate heavy machinery

Driving goes from 10 and 2 with perfectly lined up mirrors to driving with your knees and eating a taco

8. Your classmates

High school classes are with all of your friends and college classes have strangers in them almost every day

9. The people teaching you things

High school teachers are scary and mean, while college professors become your friends

10. Textbooks

High school textbooks are provided where college textbooks need to be bought with another student loan

9 Eligible Princes You Need To Know About Now That Prince Harry Is Off The Market

You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting

Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.

Pride Month Means The World For The LGBTQ+ Community

You've probably noticed lately rainbows being plastered on numerous social media sites, search engines, and shopping centers.


You've probably noticed lately rainbows being plastered on numerous social media sites, search engines, and shopping centers. Some may ask why? Well, June is internationally recognized as LGBT+ Pride month. The LGBT+ have festivities, and parades bedazzled with rainbow memorabilia and of celebrate. The meaning of this all is to celebrate the revolution, and the progress that the LGBT+ community has made in a relatively short period of time. As being apart of the LGBT+ community, I understand the importance of this month. The LGBT+ has come so far over the last couple of years but there's still more progress that needs to be done. As we head into our last weeks of Pride month, the festivities will end and the importance of this all will be forgotten. To some Pride month is just a temporary event, but for others being prideful is an everything thing. I'm proud to be apart of the LGBT+ community and I walk with pride because nobody can take away my journey and the love I have for myself despite my sexuality. So why do we celebrate pride?

It's not all about costumes, rainbows, and glitter galore. Pride is the one time of the year that LGBT+ people can be out and proud of who they are. It's the one time of year that they can dance in the streets, and blast their authentic individuality without a care in the world. We celebrate pride because though we have come far, the history is still there. Pride matters because believe it or not the United States is built on straight privilege.

This makes it okay for a straight NFL draft to kiss his girlfriend on his huge drafting achievement. On the other hand why is not okay for Michael Sam, a former NFL draft pick to kiss his boyfriend on national television as a congratulation? That's why pride matters. If I had a dollar for every time someone said to me "I'm okay with you being gay but why do you have to flaunt it?" I'd have a million dollars. It's not about flaunting my sexuality, it's about accepting it and feeling "normal" for once.

There's pride in being out and open. You have the opportunity to be your authentic self. Think about all of the children and teenagers who know they are LGBT+ but cannot even begin to fathom taking a step out of the closet for fear of abuse and scrutiny from their families.

They look at pride events and see a glimpse of hope that things can get better, and that they can be free, safe, and celebrated for who they are. That is the power of pride. That's the gift of being apart of the LGBT+, you might not know it but there's someone somewhere who looks up to you.

Don't ever change for anyone because who the hell is gone pop you? If want to wear makeup, WEAR IT. I've realized that the people that mistreated you will soon need you and the people that called you names will soon envy you. It doesn't matter if you're skinny or fat, short, or tall. You're beautiful no matter what. God made no mistakes, and whoever is missing out on you is their loss. They don't deserve you, because someone who can accept their flaws is perfect in my book.

On a happy ending I hope you all dream of Leonardo DiCaprio naked and Juicy Couture sweatsuits
