The Struggle of A College Student, As Told By My Own Cats

They're very relatable, even if they don't actually go to school.

The Struggle of A College Student, As Told By My Own Cats

Despite what your fellow dog-fiends may think, cats can be very sympathetic to human struggles. A cat's purr is actually therapeutic and no one can overstate the comfort of a kitten's cuddle. Sure, man's best friend may be a dog, but my best friend is definitely a cat.

I often find myself envious of my own cats: they sleep all day, everyone wants to play with them, and they instantly grasp anyone's attention with their cuteness. Even though they can escape the struggle of everyday human life, they still somehow find a way to be relatable. Whenever I am feeling bogged-down with the stresses of college, they seem to understand how I'm feeling.

Life Knocks Us Down

School can be overwhelming and you can't always handle it as well as you hope.

We Are Always Tired

Ania Korpanty

Just like my cat can fall asleep on the middle of my carpet, so can I.

We Can Find Ourselves in Strange Situations

Ania Korpanty

College brings some weird twists and turns, and sometimes you have to adjust to an uncomfortable position.

People Get in Our Business

Ania Korpanty

We all just need space sometimes, but not everyone understands the concept of alone time in college.

Our Free Time is Sleep Time

Ania Korpanty

If you have a twenty-minute break in-between two classes, that means taking a cat nap in the library.

We All Need a Hug Once in a While

Ania Korpanty

The most comforting thing in college can be someone just showing a little affection.

All We Want is Carbs

Ania Korpanty

One thing college students and my cat have in common: they both love pasta.

Waking Up is a Struggle

Ania Korpanty

That feeling when you have to turn on the lights and get ready for your 8:00 AM class.

We are in Desperate Need of Sunlight

We never go outside, so we're all pale and sad.

We Just Want Fuzzy Blankets

Ania Korpanty

The best part of the day is when you can leave the library and come home to your bed.

We Need A Little Company Sometimes

Ania Korpanty

There's nothing like spending some quality time with a friend.

Who is supposedly "man's best friend" again?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
