22 Things That Are Every College Student's New Year's Resolutions

With the new year upon us, college students are their own kind of cult when it comes to resolutions. It's a time to reflect on our favorite memories, biggest lessons and dumbest decisions at school thus far. Face it, we've all been there: didn't do so hot in a class, ordered late night food one too many times, bought yet another top from Tobi "because it's on sale," or spent more time thinking about going to the gym than actually stepping foot on a machine. Well, we've got four more months to TRY to do better.

Here's a collection of every college student's new year's resolutions for the upcoming semester:

1. Try to be less of an Uber addict.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F6361855325341707991010423922_cf728d6b-8b9d-4904-a6ed-c6102c8ccdf1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=133&h=15c8a84f2594325548b6075466d911f3b6e848db9bbb4b79884a6d924976e154&size=980x&c=68695174 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F6361855325341707991010423922_cf728d6b-8b9d-4904-a6ed-c6102c8ccdf1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D133%26h%3D15c8a84f2594325548b6075466d911f3b6e848db9bbb4b79884a6d924976e154%26size%3D980x%26c%3D68695174%22%7D" expand=1]

Admit it, it's like the only language we speak anymore. But there becomes a point when you've Ubered just down the block and realize: I need to get a grip on my life.

2. Find a good formal date this semester.

Either you didn't find one last semester or he ended up being really lame. It's time to raise your expectations this time around.

3. Find cute AND affordable clothes.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F636185538061793895-1618198318_giphy-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=328&h=c185c655d5bf8701112e54270f6ff5b1b9b1c1f732daefe11452447d07f5aef3&size=980x&c=2441352140 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F636185538061793895-1618198318_giphy-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D328%26h%3Dc185c655d5bf8701112e54270f6ff5b1b9b1c1f732daefe11452447d07f5aef3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2441352140%22%7D" expand=1]

Track down those sales and don't settle until you've left the store feeling like you made money!

4. Actually go to the gym.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F636185538622317200128029090_giphy-2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=319&h=d40da84bca3997e64d18a1ac7fa9dc79dad42c9a372d4f2521ab2d721cef1e9f&size=980x&c=2557613826 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F636185538622317200128029090_giphy-2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D319%26h%3Dd40da84bca3997e64d18a1ac7fa9dc79dad42c9a372d4f2521ab2d721cef1e9f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2557613826%22%7D" expand=1]

Those Christmas cakes and cookies aren't going to burn off themselves!

5. Cut down on the late night food.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F636185542110698949-1680543861_giphy-3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=463&h=cf4d52b6d723a852a1879709e494cb9843fa9bd6ddc3c9b11de7ea1dba180af1&size=980x&c=3096529931 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F636185542110698949-1680543861_giphy-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D463%26h%3Dcf4d52b6d723a852a1879709e494cb9843fa9bd6ddc3c9b11de7ea1dba180af1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3096529931%22%7D" expand=1]

Yup, we've all been there. Discipline yourself now and you'll thank yourself later!

6. Actually make it to football games.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F636185545201768080-459490601_raw.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=280&h=e4f67f0d079b8b7f3a5fd18fcd2ddb94b6a4085f8032ff57d810d78fee92a2df&size=980x&c=197846915 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F636185545201768080-459490601_raw.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D280%26h%3De4f67f0d079b8b7f3a5fd18fcd2ddb94b6a4085f8032ff57d810d78fee92a2df%26size%3D980x%26c%3D197846915%22%7D" expand=1]

Come fall 2017, go be in the stands when your school wins a game, don't hear about it on your iPhone.

7. Appreciate your college friends.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F636185547099848611-46547653_8.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=977&h=d91f86987af56c114b7d81bfd01566051c1e2cdb34b2cff61ad264c7c012d1d7&size=980x&c=767810491 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F636185547099848611-46547653_8.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D977%26h%3Dd91f86987af56c114b7d81bfd01566051c1e2cdb34b2cff61ad264c7c012d1d7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D767810491%22%7D" expand=1]

They're your family during the year and are the reason why college is your home away from home. Don't take them for granted.

8. Make your weekends as fun as your Instagrams look.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F6361855509675086931921800681_giphy-4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=610&h=72b584f7f5e7eae48fa1cf5d41a0784eb2f2c598dc799c65e21c784aba2e7926&size=980x&c=2553224170 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F6361855509675086931921800681_giphy-4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D610%26h%3D72b584f7f5e7eae48fa1cf5d41a0784eb2f2c598dc799c65e21c784aba2e7926%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2553224170%22%7D" expand=1]

We all want 400+ likes on an insta but sometimes we're so consumed by getting the "perfect pic" that we forget to enjoy our weekend. You don't have to pick one!

9. Eat some salad.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F6361855544325409731148980585_giphy-5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=563&h=2ed4775530292fa428ea80bee022a002860ce60c1065ef501a4fd82f5304eece&size=980x&c=1778842360 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F6361855544325409731148980585_giphy-5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D563%26h%3D2ed4775530292fa428ea80bee022a002860ce60c1065ef501a4fd82f5304eece%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1778842360%22%7D" expand=1]

While salads can be very tasty, they're not always the most appealing choice. We could all add more greens into our diets.

10. Treat yourself once in a while.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F636185556675411439807355213_treat_yo_self_2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=68&h=dc589b6ed81c403a407d35ef346fe568c20a3e98ad0bd49ef1f3706d490a4786&size=980x&c=1847072282 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F636185556675411439807355213_treat_yo_self_2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D68%26h%3Ddc589b6ed81c403a407d35ef346fe568c20a3e98ad0bd49ef1f3706d490a4786%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1847072282%22%7D" expand=1]

College can be rough af. We all deserve a wine and ice cream night once in a while.

11. Don't skip class.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F636185557555994600-978588136_tenor.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=388&h=517b200499745928bfd70d85a1d29519d2b3854bf1ea6b33c433759c9c2ad56f&size=980x&c=3036827834 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F636185557555994600-978588136_tenor.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D388%26h%3D517b200499745928bfd70d85a1d29519d2b3854bf1ea6b33c433759c9c2ad56f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3036827834%22%7D" expand=1]

While our beds are way too tempting, don't be that person who misses key material for an upcoming exam. We've all regretted it before.

12. Don't dwell on dumb mistakes.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F6361855594883268392124180110_ab87a229d2a42fdd7fbaf1abfec336cd.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=281&h=f0af578c694d437a0c30487f35c2eec6b9a4ddbc3218375b78b7dd1a5256cca6&size=980x&c=1061786875 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F6361855594883268392124180110_ab87a229d2a42fdd7fbaf1abfec336cd.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D281%26h%3Df0af578c694d437a0c30487f35c2eec6b9a4ddbc3218375b78b7dd1a5256cca6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1061786875%22%7D" expand=1]

It's college. We all do dumb things. Don't beat yourself up! You'll be over it by the morning.

13. Don't spend every dollar you have.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F636185560444364087-652645149_raw-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=84&h=ca735726ba24b0232dcca2d93b554e076db2d6ab04f6a2db18f424c31f45987f&size=980x&c=869328967 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F636185560444364087-652645149_raw-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D84%26h%3Dca735726ba24b0232dcca2d93b554e076db2d6ab04f6a2db18f424c31f45987f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D869328967%22%7D" expand=1]

Try to spend less on food or items you don't need because we all know how quickly our college spending money runs out.

14. Get enough sleep to function.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F636185562447454060691566513_635720649116354719-808473499_i-need-my-beauty-sleep.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=3&h=dabf5e5df09aa10a86c374734309455464f86eef4fbe33b235b9cbdc611deb9a&size=980x&c=3353848345 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F636185562447454060691566513_635720649116354719-808473499_i-need-my-beauty-sleep.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D3%26h%3Ddabf5e5df09aa10a86c374734309455464f86eef4fbe33b235b9cbdc611deb9a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3353848345%22%7D" expand=1]

We all make the mistake of pulling all-nighter's or not going to bed till 2 a.m. Give your bedy a rest.

15. Nap when you need to.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F28%2F6361855644748658781022476886_2-naps-per-day-gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=971&h=b39c513c605f488c0511e05a18475ea5f69f3251ccce9272b7109a6234143134&size=980x&c=1227498360 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F28%252F6361855644748658781022476886_2-naps-per-day-gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D971%26h%3Db39c513c605f488c0511e05a18475ea5f69f3251ccce9272b7109a6234143134%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1227498360%22%7D" expand=1]

A nap can single-handedly save your afternoon. Embrace your inner napper.
