I Asked 16 People What They Missed Most About College And Students' Priorities Are Interesting

Fall always reminds me of college; i have so far been doing okay since graduating from SUNY Albany but I do get the nostalgic feel about college sometimes! I miss seeing my friends around, dance club, going to classes and just hanging out in dorms. I asked people what they miss most about college and here are the answers that I got:

1. "Being so close in distance with many friends!"
2. "Having many neighbors in similar stages of life. :)"
3."Hmm...I go with access and opportunities/access to articles and journals and a huge library; opportunities to study abroad, to attend guest lectures and guest speakers, to go to special screenings and events."
4. "I miss working towards a specific goal-graduating-and having a (more or less) fixed end date for when that would be finished, which made it feel like there was the opportunity for anything I didn't like about my situation at the time to change for the better once I was done."
5. "Living with and around friends."
6. "Drugs."
7. "Probably one of the things I miss most in life, football. Haha. Yeah, playing college ball was great. Only really liked three things about college personally; football, research, and being surrounded by friends."
8. "I miss friends too; Always having people to hang out with for sure."
9. "Being so close to all my friends that we could hang out at any given time."
10. "Having fun with friends and not having to stress about work or life." 11. "The friends who live far away now."
12. "Walking to bars!"
13. "College radio station and having my own radio show!"
14. "Having all my closest friends around all the time and being able to spend time with them whenever I wanted too or needed them! Now, we're lucky if we see each other once a month haha."
15. "Living so close to all my friends."
16. "I'd have to say, living with your friends. It was either that or my old routine every day."

So these are the answers I got. I will always cherish my college days!

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
