10 Times The Kardashians Kept Up With Your College Graduation Stream Of Consciousness

So turns out that graduating isn't actually as easy as it seemed junior year.

10 Times The Kardashians Kept Up With Your College Graduation Stream Of Consciousness

Fall semester is halfway over, and we've all started to make plans for our future. Job hunting, applying for gap year programs, looking into Master's programs, medical school, dental school, you name it. But in order for us to progress towards our future, there is one major milestone you have to cross: Graduation.

Whether you are graduating in December, with less than 100 days to go, or in the Spring, the dreaded G-word is approaching quickly. I hope you've braced yourself.

Here's the most savage family we know convey our thoughts on graduation, one season at a time.

1. When you start out your last year

We made it to Senior year, how utterly exciting. We're the top dog, we've got no worries. We know the best places to study, where to get the best coffee, and how to avoid the traffic when eating on campus. We just have to breeze through these semesters and get to December/May.

2. When you realize graduating isn't actually as easy as it seemed junior year

From making sure your parking passes are all paid off in order to register for classes, you have to make sure all senior projects will be completed and presented on time, all transfer credits from study abroad are accounted for, all classes are still passed, and much more, you really have to stay on top of things. Oh, and you want to try and keep your sanity throughout all of this.

3. When you realize you've overbooked yourself

Everyone and their roommate is going to want to get lunch with you, you're going to want to meet with old and new professors to get possible recommendations, you're probably on the executive board of an organization or two, involved with another thing or two on campus, maybe even have a job, your friends will probably want to hang out, and you have football Saturdays. That doesn't seem to bad until you remember still have classes, homework, and exams.

4. When your family, friends, peers, professors and everyone else realizes you're graduating and wants to know what your future plans are

Expect the influx of questions from every single person that finds out you're a senior. From "what are your plans for graduation," to "where are you applying to," to "when do you plan to find settle down"- you're in for the Inquisition.

5. When you realize you won't be able to do everything you wanted to do your senior year

Sometimes you're going to have to multiple events on the same day, or you'll be scheduled to work and miss a football game, or you'll just be overwhelmed and need to cancel plans. No matter how much you plan out things, you'll never be able to do it all.

6. When your friends remind you that you guys won't be in the 10 mile vicinity after graduation

We've all acquired some amazing friends and a great support group during college, the idea of not being able to drive a few minutes to see them is terrifying.

7. Eventually, you leave your last semester before graduation to the Gods.

You're going to feel overwhelmed every 3.2 days. Its honestly inevitable. As you get to the halfway point before graduation, you'll be more than okay to leave it to the heavenly spirits above. But do remember that even the person in the skies can't help you if you miss the deadline for your online quizzes three times in a row.

8. When you hear underclassmen complaining about how busy they are

Don't get me wrong, every year of my undergrad was busy. I understand being involved with organizations and trying to do it all, but trust me when I say no greater feeling of being overwhelmed than when you are about to graduate. You forgot to send in a Honor Society application? I forgot I need to apply to graduate school and forgot to apply I need I need recommendations, and guess what, I think all my professors forgot me. Now how about that?

9. When people ask you how it feel to be so close to graduation

The thought of graduating and entering the real world is terrifying. However, its also exciting. Many of us will be entering jobs or graduate schools focuses on exactly what we enjoy. Some of us will be taking some time off before these next steps. Graduation is a compilation of so many emotions that your answer will change every week.

10. When you realize that what you've worked incredibly hard towards these past 4 years, more or less, is right around the corner

Its so refreshing to take a step back and see how all your hard work these past couple of years have paid off. All those nights in the library completing study guides or projects, the ridiculous amounts of money you've spent on coffee or Hibachi, even the times you got parking tickets for parking illegally in a teacher lot by the library. You made it.

You can see the light at the end of this whirlwind of a tunnel. You are so close to it, so man up and say the "G" word. You are graduating! Be proud and excited. Don't stop going to class, fill out your planner religiously, and get a head start on projects and quizzes. Do. Not. Procrastinate.

I know that senioritis is real. I know we feel it in every bone of our bodies, but you have come to close to mess up your GPA or just barely miss out on graduating because you missed one-too-many days of class, along with one too many bad test grades. Push through, young one! You've got this.

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
