I'm Almost A Senior

Wow. Where did the time go?

So, I'm almost a senior. What?

I am sitting in my junior year apartment right now thinking about how crazy that is.

I feel like I just got here and now I only have one year left.

I remember being a freshman perfectly. I was so excited and so nervous when I drove up to my freshman year home.

It really is starting to hit me. Wasn't that just yesterday?

I see students everywhere on campus taking graduation pictures and I realize that'll be me in exactly one year.

This almost brings me to tears.

As I reflect, I'm wondering what my future self would say looking back on this article. Probably, "You still had a year. Soak in every single moment."

My future self is right. I still have one whole year of being on campus, making memories, being with friends, meeting new ones. This is my opportunity to do everything I always wanted to do in college. Join every organization, get involved, be present, make plans, live life as a college student for the last bit that I can.

Yes, I am still so sad when I think about graduation, not to mention the pandemic that messed up all of my junior year plans.

But, I'm looking at this upcoming year as a chance to really enjoy this campus. Walking to classes, driving to the nearest park, grabbing a meal at a dining hall, noticing the flowers on the main lawn.

Every time I get annoyed with having to walk to class or a club meeting or a friend's apartment, I will remember this article.

This is my last year of college, ever. One day this will just be a little spot in life, 4 years where I only remember the really good parts. I'm going to make my senior year memorable.

Everyone says that senior year is that year. It is a year of laughs, cries, hugs, memories, closure, and new opportunities and chances.

So, if you're also an upcoming senior, don't be discouraged or sad, as hard as it may be. We still have one whole year. Let's make it count.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
