1. We need regular naps to function.
For college kids, it might be in between classes, before chapter, or before a long night in the library. For kindergartners, naps are needed during and after school. But regardless of when, where, or age, college kids and kindergartners share a need for sleep.
2. Oh, and snacks, too.
Kindergartners and college kids alike commonly use the phrase, "You got any snacks?" Because let's face it, snacks are important.
3. Sometimes we cry for no reason at all.
College kids and little kids just need a good cry every once in a while, even if it is for no reason. It's kind of like a detox when college kids have a lot of stress, and kindergartners have a lot of emotions that they need to get rid of.
4. Sometimes all we want is our mom.
When my mom dropped me off at my first day of kindergarten I cried my eyes out because I didn't want her to leave me. When she dropped me off at college, I might've celebrated more than I should have. But regardless, even as a college student, sometimes I just needed my mommy.
5. Or food.
6. Or we just need another nap.
Naps in a bed, naps on a couch, rainy day naps, naps in the middle of the day, naps during school, group naps, car ride naps. NAPS ARE IMPORTANT. I believe everyone should get two naps at least once a day.
7. We have no money.
Money just isn't a thing when you're a little kid or a college student. So, really, your options are begging your parents for money or waiting until Christmas or your birthday rolls around so people will give you money. Or, you know, a lemonade stand.
8. We beg our parents for the things we want.
Whether it is candy at the grocery store, or in a college kid's case, just groceries in general, kindergartners and college kids are constantly begging for more money.
9. We just want to be with our friends.
Kindergartners might play with their friends on the playground, and college kids are the exact same way, except our playground is bars and fraternity parties. But whatever kind of playground, it's always more fun when you have your squad with you.
