The Daily Routine Of A College Student (Lazy) In This Day And Age

When it comes to college, there are two types of people. There's one type that is on top of everything and is constantly prepared for any curveball their professor is about to throw at them. Then there are people like me. The ones that wait last minute, do the minimum out of exhaustion and struggle through a 55-minute class every day. To all of you students out there, this one is for you.

You (kind of) wake up for your 8 a.m.


By the time you're into the fifth week of the semester, you contemplate skipping your 8 a.m. every time the alarm goes off. You even cuss at yourself for taking it.

You get coffee.


You finally get the juice of vitality running through your veins and get all giddy to go to your next class. If you're lucky, you only have two or three a day — cups of coffee, not classes.

You nap.


Once you finally have a break or are done with class for the day, you know what time it is: nap time. Time to sleep the stress of classes and homework away.

You eat mediocre dining hall food.


Odds are you eat the same thing every day at the dining hall. Most of us just go to the pizza to stress eat the heck out of some comfort food.

You panic.


You realize that it's 7 p.m. and you're exhausted even after six cups of coffee and like three naps. Then you realize that you have a boat-load of homework and reading to do for tomorrow and there's literally no time to get it done.

You hang out with your friends.


Then you realize that the best way to get rid of stress right now is to chill with your besties or hall mates because who needs homework?

You binge watch Netflix.


After hanging with your pals, you realize you need to catch up on the next episode(s) of that show you've been obsessed with.

You panic, again.


You realize it's 10:30 p.m. and you still have all that homework to do

You cram.


Somehow you get everything done that you needed to have done by tomorrow. You swear there isn't enough time in a day.

You sleep, peacefully.


Once it's 1:30 a.m. and you've done the bare minimum to remain successful at school, you sleep peacefully knowing you'll repeat the same process again tomorrow.

Overall, we know we need to change our habits in school, and maybe one day we will. For now, though, it's time to take our fourth nap of the day.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
