9 Bad Habits I've Picked Up In College

Ramen is a college student's best friend

College is a time where we as students determine our future. While it should be taken seriously there are times when our actions are not considered “Grade A” student material. This is a list of bad habits I’ve picked up so far at college.

1. Enrolling in 8 am classes

At the time it seemed like a logical decision until I’m up until almost three in the morning trying to finish a paper for the same class.

2. Unhealthy Eating at a cheap cost

I have Ramen literally all day every day in every type of flavor you can think of.

3. Going to class in pajamas

I still find time to do my makeup so I can at least look half decent.

4. Using Quizlet to study

5. Using Sparknotes instead of actual reading

Because it is not possible for me to read over one hundred pages assigned on Friday by the next following class.

6. Procrastinating on assignments

7. Drinking coffee for “breakfast”

8. Falling asleep during class

9. Skipping Classes

In all honesty, I even sit down with a calculator to see how many classes I can miss before it starts to affect my grade.

I have been enrolled in College for almost three years now and I can truly say that these habits are not that easy to kick. I have grown to accept that this, unfortunately, is the person that I have become until I finish Undergrad.

17 Pieces Of Advice From The Most Iconic Women Characters In Television

Their wisdom is priceless.


For many of us, this time of the year is crunch time: we're losing motivation, but we have to push through in order to survive. We've been working hard for the entire semester (or maybe even the whole year, if you're that ambitious), but we're starting to burn out.

Personally, my burn-out period has been defined by binge-watching television to avoid accomplishing any actual assignments. Although this may seem unproductive to the naked eye, it actually has encouraged me to push through my difficulties and persevere. Sometimes you need a fresh perspective, and watching the lives of my favorite female characters continues to motivate me. There are plenty of quotes that are particularly influential, but a select few from these incredible women really speak to me.

1. Jane Gloriana Villanueva, Jane the Virgin


To teach you that when you're overwhelmed, sometimes all you have to do is just breathe through it.

2. Sheila Jackson, Shameless (US)


As a reminder that it's okay to mess up, as long as you learn from it.

3. April Ludgate, Parks and Recreation

4. Rebecca Bunch, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend


Making sure you know that you have a support system you can turn to when it gets too hard.

5. Marisol Gonzales, Orange is the New Black


Just a reminder to be humble in all of your accomplishments.

6. Robin Scherbatsky, How I Met Your Mother

8. Cece Parikh, New Girl


Encouraging you to push through all of the struggles this time of the year may bring.

9. Liz Lemon, 30 Rock


To show that it's okay to spend a night studying for an exam instead of going out.

10. Kimmy Schmidt, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt


Although I do think that smiling during a math exam might make people think you're a little strange.

11. Cristina Yang, Grey's Anatomy


To remind me that I'm worth more than my eye bags right now.

12. Tyra Banks, America's Next Top Model


This may seem generic, but we all know it means so much more coming from Tyra Banks.

13. Kate Pearson, This is Us


Serving as motivation to improve, because who says you can't raise that 68 to a 94?

14. Carla Espinosa, Scrubs


Whether that's your friend, a potential love interest, or your professor after your fifth time going to office hours.

15. Phoebe Buffay, Friends


I know it's hard to not hate the pressure, the stress, and school in general, but try to keep a positive mindset.

16. Oprah Winfrey, Oprah Winfrey Network


Anything Oprah says is truth, so use this her wisdom as your main source of motivation.

17. Mindy Lahiri, The Mindy Project


You are stronger than you think you are.

You will make it through this difficult time, and you will be better for it. Tyra Banks said so.
