Confessions From Your Average College Girl

Being a girl in college, I have learned a lot. College is the place where you can become the person you want without anything (except maybe failing a class) or anyone holding you back. There's no parents watching over you, no high school cliques and there's something to do almost every day. However, life isn't complete without a few bumps in the road so here are a few confessions I have witnessed firsthand from my college experience so far.

You will have problems with any roommates no matter how well you get along with them. I have had different roommates the past three years of being in college, all of whom were amazing and brought nothing but fun and amazing memories. But, there were times we disagreed. Whether it was the dishes in the sink or when to be quiet when others were sleeping, it was always hard to find some common ground. Disagreements can range to the simplest of things so you have to remember that everyone is different so be aware of what's going on situations and try to be open to fixing the problem.

You can say goodbye to those fantasies of bumping into your future husband at a coffee shop because relationships are mostly found on dating apps these days. Especially in college. But honestly, I'm not complaining because apps like Tinder and OkCupid are like shopping for your significant other where you can look to see what you want in a person. Plus it gives you a chance to get to know the person to see if they're crazy or not so you don't have to waste gas is they're rude or crazy. Sorry, but I'm just being honest because you should never settle for less.

Being a girl, especially one in college, you may discover that you have a problem. And this problem is having rich wants but being too broke to afford them. I splurge more than I should at Forever 21 and keep my eyes open for every Naked eyeshadow palette that comes out, but I can't do this as much as I want to, sadly. Why you may ask? Because I have other things that come first like groceries, bills and saving up for loans to pay off in the future. But you know, sometimes you need to treat yourself after facing all the stress, exams and drama.

Your body is your temple so treat it right, externally and internally. That means be aware of what you are doing to yourself. I've had my fair share of the Freshman 15 and body shaming myself back then and yeah, it sucks, but remember it can only be temporary and can easily be worked off in the right ways. Just know that there are many girls in college dealing with the same problem so you are not alone, and you should know to always love yourself because everyone is beautiful in their own way. You don't have to change anything about yourself to make people like you. Also quick disclaimer, never sleep with your makeup on ... Trust me, just never do it no matter what.
