Freshman Year, As Told By Cats

Even though it's a struggle, cats are cute.

Freshman Year, As Told By Cats

Going off to college is a new experience that brings a whirlwind of emotions to you. It is both exciting and scary at the same time. With new surroundings and new friends, becoming accustomed to everything can be a challenge. Personally, one of my biggest challenges was being away from my pets. So, why not compare the struggles of adjusting to college life to cats?

1. Arriving and seeing the campus you will be spending your time on

Soon, you'll find out all the "secret" or "unknown" spots to hang out, study and even nap. This comes in handy in times that you just need a change of scenery if you're always staying in your dorm.

2. Moving into your dorm

This is going to be where you will be spending a good majority of your time, so you might as well make it as much of a home as you can!

3. Meeting your roommate

For some people, college will be their first experience living with someone. You could be close or not get along at all, but it's always exciting meeting them and sharing new experiences together.

4. First Day of Classes

College is very different from high school, and going to your first day of classes is very exciting.

5. When You Forget To Do An Assignment

It happens to everyone—you lose track of time and suddenly you forgot to finish that online quiz that was due at midnight.

6. When the weather starts to get colder

If you're like me, cold weather is the absolute worst so when snow starts to fall, so does my motivation for work.

7. When you just want the semester to end

The light at the end of the tunnel is close, but not close enough. You literally just want everything to finish up so you can have a long nap.

8. Finals week

Struggling to make sure you pass all your classes, because nobody wants to take a class again. It's a struggle sometimes to get all the studying in, but in the end, it is worth it.

9. Realizing it was a great year, and you low-key can't wait for the fall

Even though you had so much work continuously, you know that you really did enjoy every second of it!

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

As human beings, there are just some things that seem to bring us all together with the same sense of irritation. Here are a few of those annoying things that make my list. I'm sure at least some, if not most, of them make yours as well. If you can think of any more relatable annoyances that I've missed, feel free to comment on this article and let me know!

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
