The 4 years you spend in college are filled with lots of eating, sleeping, and attending classes. But between those things, there were a lot of memories that were made. There are too many to count, but the following are 15 of the best memories.

P.S. You probably won't understand all of these memories, but my friends and I will always remember them.

1. Snapchats

Let's just say there were A LOT of snapchats taken... especially freshman year.

4. Getting stuck on a mountain

Nothing like having your car break down on top of a mountain on a rare 70 degree day as the sun started to set. Oh and poor service too.

5. Peebles problem

Yeah don't ever sign up for any "rewards" programs because they may just be credit cards and can cause a headache to cancel.

6. Ice cream dates

Lots and lots of ice cream was eaten. We even tried glitter ice cream.

7. Chick-fil-A

Yeah we also consumed so much Chick-fil-A over the years. It's surprising we aren't sick of it yet.

8. Puppies

Playing with the puppies at the pet store was one of the most exciting things to do when you are bored or need a break from school work.

9. Each year's "thing"

Personal Photo

I'll never forget having a "thing" each year. Freshman year we colored 55 coloring pages, sophmore year we painted 80+ paintings, and junior year we ate so many pillsbury cookies.

10. Dorm hall boards

Helping our RA create the most awesome boards for our hall was lots of fun.

11. Ball

Let's just say, who knew trying to keep a beach ball in the air was so entertaining.

12. Fish families

R.I.P to the 5 fish families we had. You all meant so much to us and taught us responsibility. Also, thank you for allowing us to give ya'll punny names.

13. Halloween celebrations

Halloween for some reason is just always an interesting night.

14. Hugging the meter

The most memorable part of college is the life-long friends I made. We have made these memories together and although distance is about to separate us, I know our friendship will not change.

I don't need your opinions on why I'm single and you're not. We are two different people.

I'm so happy for my friends when they get into relationships, but that doesn't mean they get to have control over my love life, and that is what bothers me. For the record, I've been in four relationships, one lasting for three years, so I do understand relationships.

I Was At The Atlanta George Floyd Protests, Here's What It Was Like Before The Violence Started

What started out as a peaceful protest quickly resulted in destruction, with mixed opinions leading narratives on both sides.

When I heard about the protests happening in my city in honor of George Floyd, a black man who was brutally and fatally detained by police in broad daylight, I was conflicted about the best way for me to support a cause that I was passionate about. The senseless killings of people of color in America had been weighing on me, and I was eager for a way to help, to do my part. I wanted to be out on the ground with my community, having our voices heard. However, there was the issue of the coronavirus, a very real and troublesome threat that is still controlling our daily lives.

If You Can Eat Crap And Stay Thin You Aren't Healthy, You're Lucky

Everyone has that one friend — the one who eats to their heart's content but never gains an ounce. Meanwhile, you feel like you gain five pounds just stealing a glance at a hamburger! My childhood best friend was like that, much to my chagrin. Anyone who hadn't witnessed her eat might be tempted to say that she was thin because of her diet, but she would sometimes eat a bag of Sour Patch Kids as a "meal." One time, I watched in awe as she chowed down on a "salad" made up of one part romaine lettuce, two parts shredded cheddar cheese, and two parts French dressing — it was nothing more than a red lake of dressing with bits of green and orange debris floating in it. Clearly our definitions of "salad" were quite different, as were our perceptions of a balanced meal.
