Unusual Habits College Students Have

11 Choices College Students Will Make That Raise Our Stress Level

It's the little choices in life that make our life insanely stressful.


You know college, in general, is a stressful concept.

Being an adult when you're not there yet, really does stink sometimes. While having an endless amount of freedom to do anything your little heart desires can be fun, it's the little choices in life that make our life insanely stressful.

Since our life is always so busy, we sometimes try to make it easier on us by cutting corners in our school life, and while we think it's making our lives easier, we're actually making pretty bad choices that lead to bad habits.

Choices can vary on many things, but college students have made it to where all of the choices we make can either make or break us in school.

Don't think that stops us though; our weird habits make us who we are!

Here are 11 choices that college students make that always seem to raise our stress level.

1. Procrastinate

Don't lie. You do it too.

2. Pick 8 a.m. classes and immediately regret it. 

Come the first day of class you may find getting up is easy, but once the week gets going, waking up on time seems nearly impossible.

3. Have totally unhealthy eating habits

At this point, any type of food is fair game for me.

4. Having no sleeping schedule

Enough said.

5. Binge studying the night before your exam

When you attempt to learn the entire course content in a single night.

6. Sleeping everywhere

Next time it's Finals Week, turn to look at your surroundings. I can promise you that you'll find someone sleeping somewhere with their notes in their hands.

The sad part is that you look at them, and you might think: "Wow, that person has the right idea."

7. "I can write this paper in a day." 

Some people can write an entire essay in a day, but taking your time is always better for your grade!

8. Forgetting to buy scantrons

There's nothing more petrifying in life than going to take an exam, only to find out that you forgot to buy scantrons.

9. Choosing to present early in class 

Everything's all fun and games until you step in front of the class and everyone is just staring at you.

10. When you think about skipping class

No matter how much you want to skip, please don't, because skipping might seem like a good idea until you miss a pop quiz that a Professor just wanted to throw out there for that day.

11. Choosing what to do next in life

Does sleeping count?

When You Make A Girl An Aunt, You Change Her World In All The Best Ways

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest girl in the world.


My brother and his wife recently blessed our family with the sweetest bundle of joy on planet earth. OK, I may be a little bias but I believe it to be completely true. I have never been baby crazy, but this sweet-cheeked angel is the only exception. I am at an age where I do not want children yet, but being able to love on my nephew like he is my own is so satisfying.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a very protective person.

From making sure the car seat is strapped in properly before every trip, to watching baby boy breathe while he sleeps, you'll never meet someone, besides mommy and daddy of course, who is more concerned with the safety of that little person than me.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her a miniature best friend.

There is something about an aunt that is so fun. An aunt is a person you go to when you think you're in trouble or when you want something mom and dad said you couldn't have. An aunt is someone who takes you to get ice cream and play in the park to cool down after having a temper tantrum. I can't wait to be the one he runs to.

When you make a girl an aunt, she gets to skip on the difficulty of disciplining.

Being an aunt means you get to be fun. Not to say I wouldn't correct my nephew if he were behaving poorly, but for the most part, I get to giggle and play and leave the hard stuff for my brother.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her the best listening ears.

As of right now I only listen to the sweet coos and hungry cries but I am fully prepared to listen to all the problems in his life in the future.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the best advice giver.

By the time my nephew needs advice, hopefully, I will have all of my life lessons perfected into relatable stories.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a number-one fan

Anything you do in life sweet boy, I will be cheering you on. I already know you are going to do great things.

When you make a girl an aunt, she learns what true love is.

The love I have for my nephew is so pure. Its the love that is just there. I don't have to choose to show love every day, I don't have to forgive, I don't have to worry if it is reciprocated, it is just there.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest person in the world.

I cannot wait to watch my precious nephew grow into the amazing person that I know he is going to be.

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
