10 'Friends' Reactions That Explain Paying College Tuition

10 'Friends' Reactions That Explain Paying College Tuition

This too shall pass.


It is that time of the year again, probably the most dreadful part of the semester.

Tuition is due. I repeat: tuition is due.

Yes, it's the time when we want to pull our hair out; truly, this time can be even more stressful than finals week. It's the time when we question why we're in college, or who even thinks college kids can afford this. And by the way, what is all this money going towards? We contemplate sugar daddies, panhandling, and quite honestly, dropping out of college. Yep, tuition is due.

1. When you first take a look at the bill

No way that's possible...

2. Then you start wondering how in the hell they think you're going to be able to afford this

Me? Affording that?! Good joke! Who do they even think I am?

3. Running to your friends for moral support

More or less just to bitch and moan about how stupid FAFSA is and that you should have been saving money, but they "made" you go to the movies last week. You'll tell them that they're basically the reason you aren't saving money. Then, you'll find some place to go out to eat so you both can eat your feelings away.

4. When you start thinking about all the stupid shit you bought this year when you probably should've saved that money

That fore-mentioned friend. That's the reason. Maybe not, but never accept the blame.

5. What you think the FAFSA people think of you

Well guess what FAFSA peeps, we think of you the same way.

6. Looking at the bill again hoping it just magically went down

If I wait long enough, it'll just pay itself... right??

7. So you start contemplating that a sugar daddy is your only option

Okay, not really, but the thought has *sadly* crossed all of our minds.

8. You make the desperate call to your mom asking for help

But, but, but mom....

9. Then there's that evil war inside your brain right before you hit "submit payment"

No way I'm doing this bullshit. Ugh, but I have to. No, this money is not going to anything useful. But, I want to make money in the future. FINE.

10. You finally have the courage to hit the button and now you have to forget about the torture

Welp, that was a quick glimpse of hell.

But stay calm. This, too, shall pass. One day it will all be worth it. So go ahead, enjoy another semester full of ramen noodles and one-ply toilet paper. You'll survive.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
