The dramatic version.

Getting Up In The Morning Told By A College Student

High school has ended and you no longer have to get up at 6:30 a.m. and catch the bus or your carpool in the mornings because you are now an adult in college and you can pick your own classes. Don’t let this deceive you, kids--you have a tremendous amount of power now and it can be used against you. In college, you have the dreaded 8 a.m. classes and for some schools you even have (pause for dramatic effect) The 7:30 a.m.’s *gasp* It's true ladies and gentlemen, they exist. There really is no win-win situation because night classes aren’t any better. I would say the best times for classes are in the afternoon, but anytime after 3 p.m. I start to get dragged and tired and it's not a party anymore (then again when is going to classes ever a party?). Although, getting up in the mornings is basically my exercise routine for the day because it takes so much in me to get out of bed and gain the motivation to go to classes my loving parents are paying money for me to attend. Here is how it usually goes--every morning--except for Saturday's.

The process begins.

You hear--it

There it is, you hear it: the thing you’ve been afraid of since you set it the night before.

Snooze it or lose it

Deal with it later, that’s the motto.

Enjoy the 9 minutes of sleep

And yes, we all look as beautiful as Ariel when we’re sleeping.

It happens again

I’ve cried before, alright, it happens--don’t be alarmed (pun intended).

Contemplating how important this class really is

Do I really need to go to this class? Will this really make me smarter? Can I still graduate?

Roommate intervention

She thinks she’s your mom, but you are a responsible adult, okau--you don’t have to get up if you don’t want to.

You snooze for about five more minutes

You’ll probably know the answer to all your troubles with five more minutes of sleep on your shoulders.

You know your answer--you have to get up

This class will probably make me a better person in the long run.

Melt out of bed slowly--one leg at a time

The ground, it's so hard, and cold--why is it so cold out here in the world?


There is so much coming up that you have to make decisions about. What do you have to wear, what’s the temperature outside, should I eat, and more importantly, do I go back to bed?

Gain your strength and do it

Shia Labeouf knows exactly what this means; he probably has the same problems in the morning.

And then you realize you're late

Might as well look stylish when you walk in the middle of the lecture and everyone stares at you and knows you have had a rough morning.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
