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?

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
