9 Struggles You Have Being An Early Bird In College

9 Struggles You Have Being An Early Bird In College

Most people have these preconceived ideas about people in college that all we do is party all night and sleep all day. For some people, that's true, but for people like me, not so much. I'm the crazy person you'll see going to get breakfast at 7:30 in the morning, sorry not sorry.

1. Sleepovers are the most awkward thing. Ever.  

Giphy

Trying to not be annoying but also wake your friend up so you don't have to be awake alone is the most awkward thing.

2. No matter how tired you are, you can't sleep in. 

Giphy

But my brain is like nope, 7 AM, rise and shine.

3. You can't help but be ready for bed by 9 PM.

Giphy

I mean, going out sounds great and all, but why do we have to wait until 10 to go downtown? I'm already tired thinking about it.

4. You almost always wake up before your alarm. 

Giphy

I have to be up by 8? Great, I'll wake up at 6:30.

5. You never get to eat breakfast with your friends. 

Giphy

I ate breakfast at 7 AM but sure, I'll come sit with you while you eat pancakes at 12 PM.

6. 8 AM classes don't really seem all that bad. 

Giphy

I mean honestly, I'd be up anyway.

7. You're ready for lunch by 10:30 AM.

Giphy

When you eat breakfast at 7 AM, it's lunchtime before noon.

8. If for some weird reason you sleep until 9 AM, you feel like you wasted the whole day. 

Giphy

I may as well have slept until 5 PM because now I don't know what to do with myself.

9. You're literally the only one in a good mood in the mornings. 

Giphy

While everyone else is dragging at 10 AM, you're ready to go because you've been up for 3 hours.

Being a morning person in college is just flat out weird, but some of us can't help it okay? I wish I was asleep until 11 AM, trust me.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
