Everyone has those habits they want to kick but can't.

7 Trends College Girls Should Leave In Fall Semester If They Don't Want To Be THAT Girl

We all know THAT girl: the one who's a wreck all the time, constantly stressed and running around like a crazy person. The following seven trends are behaviors you should stop if you don't want to be THAT girl.

Drunk texting your ex.


NO NO NO NO NO! DON'T DO IT!!! Ladies, let's leave this in 2018 and make this the year we STOP drunk texting our exes!

Procrastinating and then pulling an all-nighter to finish homework.


Listen, I've been guilty of this, but don't get in the cycle of procrastinating and then pulling an all-nighter, then being tired the next day and not doing work, causing another all-nighter... work ahead, force yourself to do work every day, and don't fall behind. AND SLEEP!

Spending too much time on your phone.

We all know that person who's constantly on their phone during class, while hanging out with friends, etc. Try putting your phone down and actually enjoying life a little. Instagram will still be there, I promise.

Showing up to class 35 minutes late.

Either be on time, or don't show up. If you're any more than five minutes late, it looks bad, and it's distracting. Plus, you're missing important information you PAID to learn, so get your money's worth and show up to class!



EVERYONE knows how bad Juuling is for you... nicotine addiction is real, and it's happening to college students everywhere. Before you know it you're taking your Juul to class and writing a paper while Juuling... it's time to stop!

Worrying about things that haven't happened.

You can't control everything, as much as you might try. Worry about what you CAN control, and leave what you can't control out of the equation.

Comparing yourself to others or judging yourself by how many likes you get.

Everyone is guilty of this. Do people not like me? Why didn't I get as many likes as this other person? Am I not as popular as they are? Stop these thoughts! Your self-worth isn't determined by your social media presence.

Hopefully, these are seven habits you can implement to have a happy, healthy and successful 2019!

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.
