18 Times Kate Middleton Was Actually All Of Us In College, Beside The Princess Thing

Every girl has to go through her clueless college stage before she reaches Duchess status.

Kate Middleton is basically a household name by now, and how could this not be the case when she has the gorgeous hair, kind smile, and incredible fashion sense. With her constantly in the spotlight looking so put together, we sometimes forget that the Duchess was actually all of us in college!

Here are 18 times that Kate proved she was just like all of us.

1. Going all out in the name of school spirit

There is nothing like breaking out the war paint and screaming for your home team. Like Kate, we all love to get a little messy and make some memories with our friends.

2. Hanging out with the roomies

Some people may not get lucky in this area but for those who are best friends with their roommates, they understand the love. It's a dream come true for everyone who has always wanted to live with their best friends. It's like a sleepover that never ends.

3. Dressing up cute on the first day of school...

You got to make a good first impression on your way to school. Whether it's during your 7 A.M or 4 P.M., it's always best to dress to impress.

4. ...and wearing yoga pants for the rest of the year

And this goes all the way until the last week of school when you don't bother getting out of bed to wear pants at all.

5. Going grocery shopping and throwing in cookies, ice-cream, and every type of Pringles because your mom isn't there to say no

You'll probably regret that in a few months when the Freshman Fifteen kicks in.

6. Walking for miles from your car to your dorm carrying groceries

We can't park by the apartment for a solid five minutes to carry our groceries up to the kitchen or we will risk a ticket, but we can walk a few miles carrying food that gets heavier, and heavier, and heavier with every step.

7. Going out for a night on the town on a Friday night

Dancing, laughter, and fun? Everyone in college has been to a party or two. It's a classic part of the college experience. Sometimes you just need a distraction from all the essays and tests.

8. Being so late to class you threw on whatever your hands grabbed next

We've all been there. Our alarm doesn't go off, we press snooze a few too many times, or forget to even set an alarm and next thing you know we are running around the dorm room like Taz from Looney Toons. You throw on whatever, then run to class.

Unfortunately 9/10 times our outfits don't turn out. Although, Kate can certainly pull off this look, no matter how mismatched.

9. Pretending your walking to the same building as the cute boy you met so you have the excuse to keep talking to him

I am very guilty of doing this. Although I missed my class, at least I got to talk to the really cute boy who has class at 9:45 in the STEM building. It was worth it.

10. Sitting on the floor or standing because you're a poor college student who can't afford chairs or tables

Eating on the floor? Always. Being a college kid is tough and sometimes you have to sacrifice some things to obtain the others. Such as choosing chocolate milk and Halo Top over vegetables and hair conditioner.

Judging by Kate's beautiful locks, she chose the conditioner.

Probably the vegetables too.

We should just all follow her example.

11. Going on cute date with the boy you followed to class-turned-boyfriend

Now my short-lived romance may not have extended farther than us talking and walking to his class, but Kate and William obviously had a better ending. Nevertheless, college is the place to grow and date and possibly find the one.

12. Keeping your hair long and growing because you can't afford to get it cut

Don't trust your roommate. No matter how many times she begs you to let her cut it. Don't.

13. Turning 21 and getting dressed up and going out with your best friends

While this one probably doesn't apply to Kate, since you can drink at age 18 in most countries, all my people in the United States know the sweet freedom of turning 21. It's an iconic time in a students life and marks a huge milestone as well.

14. Passing out flyers for some type of movement or protest

Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger - which is why college is the time to stand up for what you believe in. May that be RedforEd, Planned Parenthood, anti-Abortion, Trump, the Wall, pizza bagels, it's all an exercise of the first amendment.

15. Ranting to your friends about the professor that just "doesn't understand you"

You know your thinking about that professor right now as you read this. And you know that that's your reaction whenever they give you a bad grade or say something you disagree with at the tiniest degree.

16. Getting glammed-up for those senior photos

Pick out your best outfit and make sure it's a good hair day because everyone will be viewing these photos forever... and in Kate's place that is more than true. Luckily she looks as gorgeous as ever. Does she ever have a bad hair day?

17. Walking out of your last class knowing you'll never have to write a single paper again

And purposefully not thinking about how you will be going into the real world in less than a few days.

18. When you've graduated and realized you have no idea what you're going to do with your life

Maybe a prince will be right around the corner to sweep you off your feet so you won't have to figure your life out.

5 Reasons Why I Aspire To Be Exactly Like My Favorite Character in "Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham"

Ahhhhhh, what a bright sunny day!


Whether you're a South Asian who knows everything there is to know about the culture, or an ABCD — you have definitely watched "Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham" at some point in your life. You may remember that glow-up that Rohan had when Laddoo somehow transformed into Hrithik Roshan, or you may still be dreaming that your necklace will get caught on a cute (read: rich) boy's dupatta at your friend's wedding.

Either way, I am here to tell you that the best character in that movie (arguably the film industry) is Poo. Pooja, now Poo to fit better in her English lifestyle, was clearly characterized to be the Bollywood version of Hollywood's "dumb blonde." While that trope was successful when we were younger, it backfired spectacularly when we began to see her as inspiration for our own personalities. Here's five reasons why I aspire to be just like her.

1. She's a self-confident QUEEN.


"PHAT-Pretty Hot and Tempting!"

Unfortunately, Bollywood culture has always portrayed overweight people as unlovable or in a comedic role. Therefore, when we saw this dialogue, there was a strong assumption that there would be more fat-shaming involved, but were pleasantly surprised when Poo turned this into a very positive self-confident line.

2. She knows EXACTLY what she wants.

"Good looks, good looks, and...good looks"

She's not afraid to go out and get exactly what she wants, and while it may have seemed devious or emptyheaded to us when we watched this movie for the first time, this is a constant mood now. We are also just looking for "good looks, good looks, and...good looks".

3. This CURVE.

"Hey, movie tonight?"

I don't think any of us have still truly comprehended how smart of a dialogue this was, and just once, I would like the opportunity to curve someone like this. Also, personal side note, but Robbie was really not that attractive.

4. Her self-confidence (part 2).

"then it's NOT my problem"

I would have been okay if this entire movie had just been Poo serving these one-liners for the whole 3 hours, because I aspire to have the constant confidence and poise that she has the entire time, even when her whole family tries to shame her for her decisions.

5. This special mention. 

She's RICH. Well, technically her brother-in-law is rich, but she definitely is not letting any of that money go to waste. I wish I didn't have to buy things on sale either, Poo.

Most of us didn't have an internally strong female character to look up to in Bollywood movies when we were little, but Poo was a very refreshing change. The directors and producers of K3G definitely intended for her to be a comedic side character that everyone laughed at, but they probably did not expect us to begin seeing her as a feminist inspiration once we started to grow up and became more conscious of ourselves and the world around us.

She taught us to be proud of the decisions that we make and not let anyone bring us down, and constantly inspires me to be my most bad ass self.
