College Life As Told By Friends

Most of us grew up watching Friends-- maybe with our parents or on our own, but who would of thought that the show would become relevant to a college student's life. There are so many memorable quotes to choose from-- Chandler's witty sarcasm, Joey's child-like persona, or Phoebe's thoughtless comments (or are they?) Here are a couple that us college student's can relate to.

1. "Because the more I drink, the less there is for the kids to drink."

Because aren't we all looking for an excuse to get drunk on a Tuesday? Why not make that excuse the kids.


Professors like to give us exams in the most inconvenient times. Who wants to study for an exam on a Monday when it was just the weekend? Why did you fail that Biology exam that was 1/3 of your grade? Well, because WE WERE ON A BREAK!

3. "I'm not even sorry."

College is time to explore and do things outside of our comfort zone. Some of these things might not be approved by friends, family, professors, etc. But why be sorry?

4. "Monday, one day. Tuesday, two day. Wednesday, when? Huh? What day? Thursday, the third day!"

I, personally, will loose track of the days. They seem to blur past me as I study, do my endless hours of homework, and juggle an internship all at once. How else are you going to keep track of when you have that exam unless you have a witty way to keep up?

5. "Hell is filled with people like you."

When it comes to professors, I think this one speaks for itself.

6. "If I'm going down, I'm taking everybody down with me!"

Ah, teacher evaluation forms. Usually at the end of a semester, professors will hand out their evaluation forms. Some unlucky students probably didn't do so well in the class, and if they're going down, they're taking the professor down with them.

7. "I don't know what I'm gonna do with my life."

Much like Chandler, who of us really know's what we're doing with our lives? Before we know it graduation hits and we're running around like chickens with our heads cut off in our caps and gowns.

8. "I don't like when people take food off my plate, okay?"

As a college student, we have a meal plan that we basically depend on to survive. Although, that meal plan isn't usually enough to fulfill our food needs.There are rare moments when we'll get care packages filled with food from home-- and we aren't sharing.

9. "I just shouldn't be allowed to make decisions anymore."

Sometimes we make stupid decisions with our new found freedom-- and sometimes, we just shouldn't be allowed to make those types of decisions anymore.

10. "So why don't you be a grownup and come watch TV in the fort?"

As much as most of us college kids claim to be 'adults' some of us just aren't quite there yet. Every once in a while we just want to watch cartoons in the fort we made in our room and eat mac n' cheese.

11. "Phoebe, do you have a plan?" "I don't even have a 'pla'."

What college student completely has a plan for when they graduate? I envy you if you have a plan for what

you're going to do tomorrow.

12. "Welcome to the real world! It sucks! You're gonna love it!"

We might not be in the real world yet. College life is some sort of limbo to adult hood that we're all in--wandering around, bumping into things, and looking for food. Who's isn't dreading the moment when we walk across the stage and become a functioning member of society? Maybe it'll suck, but we'll probably also love it.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
