8 Signs You Are Absolutely NOT A Morning Person

8 Signs You Are Absolutely NOT A Morning Person

Honestly, waking up early just makes me miserable.


There are some people who thrive in the morning. Then there are some people who hardly function at all. If you're anything like me, you're the latter of the two. Here are some signs that you hate being up early with all your heart.

1. Your only motivation to get out of bed is coffee

Ah, coffee. My second true love — aside from sleep. Coffee is the one thing that makes getting out of bed early at least somewhat enjoyable. Knowing that I get to wake up and enjoy a cup of greatness is motivation enough to get me out of bed in the morning.

2. You set multiple alarms and snooze them ALL

I purposely set more than one alarm every single morning because I ALWAYS hit snooze. I could literally hit snooze 10 times and not even realize it. My body is just like, no sis, we sleeping.

3. If you have to be up before 10 a.m., you're miserable

Honestly, waking up early just makes me miserable. I'm tired, cranky, and forced to do things I don't want to do at an early hour. Just let me sleep all day, please.

4. No matter how much sleep you get, you still want to go back to bed

Maybe it's just me, but I am literally ALWAYS tired. I could sleep for 10 hours and still want to crawl back into bed. I could get eight hours and still be dying for a cup of coffee to wake me up. It's ridiculous, but sleep controls me.

5. Early morning responsibilities are your worst nightmare

Sometimes those early morning classes or work shifts are simply unavoidable. Not only do I have to wake up at an ungodly hour, but I have to be responsible? No, thanks.

6. You have no problem with sleeping until noon 

Some people prefer to wake up earlier, even when they have no obligations in the morning in order to avoid being unproductive. I, on the other hand, have no issue with sleeping until noon when I have the rare opportunity to do so. Sleep is my one true love and I will be taking full advantage of such a joyous occasion.

7. You're in a bad mood until it's a reasonable hour and you've had coffee

I personally am hardly functioning until I have my Dunkin' iced coffee in my hand. Don't talk to me until I've had my coffee. Seriously.

8. You cherish the days you get to sleep in as late as you want

For us busy working college students, the days that we get to sleep in are near and dear to our hearts. Because we have such little time to sleep, when we finally do have a day to sleep until noon, DO NOT wake us up.

13 Summer Struggles Only Thick Girls Understand

Chafing. So much chafing.


Summer is a lovely time. A time of cookouts, swimming, and sunny weather. But if you're a " thick girl," summer sometimes brings more unpleasantries than it does for slimmer women. No matter how beautiful and confident you are in your body, it can bring some struggles.

1. The living hell that is shorts-shopping

Step 1: Find the biggest size the store has.

Step 2: (If you can even get those on): Realize your stomach is being squeezed into the top, your butt is falling out of the back and your thighs are having the life squished out of them.

Step 3: Realize why winter isn't so bad.

2. And dealing with them even after finding a pair that "fits"

Nothing like taking a pair of shorts home you remember fitting you okay in the store and then walking for 45 seconds and pulling them out of your butt or crotch 17 times. Truly a magical experience.

3. And every bathing suit you try on shows more skin than you'd planned

Even the most conservative bathing suit turns into cleavage-city and a non-cheeky set of bottoms turns into a thong. I promise, older people glaring at me in my sexual bathing suit, I didn't mean for this to happen!

4. Chafing. So much chafing.

No better feeling than four minutes into wearing short shorts realizing that your inner thighs are literally tearing themselves apart. Body Glide and baby powder are a thick girl's No. 1 necessity.

5. Loving rompers. Rompers not loving you.

Rompers are made with short and skinny girls in mind. Heaven forbid you're not short, and heaven forbid you're not skinny. Rompers are like a mystical article of clothing that, no matter what, always just barely doesn't fit.

6. Imagining wearing a sundress with a strapless bra and just laughing

Of course, not all thick girls are well-endowed in the boob department, but if you are, you understand how hilarious the thought of you wearing a strapless bra truly is.

7. And bralettes are a thing of fantasy

Once again, bralettes are designed for a very specific body type. One that I do not fall into.

8. Feeling like you need to constantly defend yourself for dressing like you want to

There are so many posts and tweets and just general ideals that people have that certain sized women can't wear certain clothing. You shouldn't feel the need to defend yourself for wearing a cute crop top or a bikini, but you will.

9. And always feeling looked at when you're rocking your swimsuit

Yes, I see your judging eyes, and yes, they are making me feel like shit. It doesn't matter how confident you are in your body, people looking at you like you just killed somebody just because you're wearing something typically made for smaller women doesn't make you feel good.

10. Did I mention chafing?

I just felt like something so horrible couldn't just be mentioned once.

11. Online shopping for cute summer outfits and then none of them fitting you correctly

There's always the dreaded "one-size-fits-all" for plus-size women. As if there's just one way to be plus-size. No matter how much they promise online that it'll fit well, it won't.

12. Seeing tiny girls complaining about losing their "summer bodies"

So many tweets talking about choosing food over a summer body. So many profile pictures of traditionally skinny women. I'm not saying that thick girls are the only ones who can complain about their summer bodies, and thick girls do not have a monopoly one not feeling confident in their bodies. But it is hard to see those posts knowing that those women would be glorified in their swimwear while you'd be gawked at.

13. The "you go girl!" comments on your oh-so-brave bikini photos

Compliments are nice, and positive comments while wearing a bikini go a long way. But the dreaded "you go girl" comment just seems so condescending. Just treat me like anyone else you'd see wearing a bikini. I promise, I'd like to feel like that.

10 LOL-Worthy And Cringe-Worthy Journal Entries, From Middle School To College

Here are my top-10 LOL-worthy journal moments.


Since I could write, I've always kept a journal. I have always been rather lax about writing every day causing many entries to be lengthy recounts of the events that had transpired since my last writing. My earlier journals consisted of shorter entries- lighthearted recounts of my day or the woes of being a care-free child- but with age came harder truths to swallow. The content of these notebooks grew with their author and I continue to write today.

Recently, I revisited my older journals. The collection is comprised of four books: a pink, hard-cover consisting of entries from ages eight to eleven, a purple, watercolor book holds my middle school days, a black, leather-bound journal containing prayers, and a neon multicolored notebook captured many high school and college dramas. Each journal has highs and lows transcribed in messy ink and graphite, sometimes there are doodles or lists of songs I simply couldn't stop listening to. It's amazing to me how things can change so quickly and how events that were important enough to me to write down were quickly forgotten with time.

So, with all that back-story you probably didn't need, here are my top-10 LOL-worthy journal moments.

1. The unfortunate spelling error of 2006.

You'll know it when you see it. Let's just say, that day was hectic.

2. This unfinished entry.

Why was I having a blast? Why was the entry cut short? I will never remember.

3. That one time I decided I would be a "responsible teen."

I was a pretty responsible teen, but the whole "I will make all A's in school" thing, yeah, that didn't happen.

4. When I thought I was gonna be an acclaimed writer so my entries started getting dramatic titles.

Good grief, I was naive.

5. Sometimes you just need a Snickers bar.

The cringiness of this journal entry knows no bounds.

6. When Mama had to hold me back so my sister didn't catch these hands... I'm still mad about that, man.

Don't draw on all my crap with permanent marker!

7. So, I trained a rooster like I was a dang falconer.

His name was Poachy, and he will be greatly missed.

8. When I put a hashtag in my journal.

It was a dark part of my life when I thought writing a hashtag before everything was funny... oh, wait, I still do. #SorryNotSorry

9. The hickey conspiracy of 2015.

Just to be clear, I've never given anyone a hickey, but for a week solid things were crazy

10. This excerpt from the entry entitled, "Common White Girl Vocab."

There were so many great, great definitions in this entry that it was hard to pick just one. Guess the "god-awful butt dance" lives on.
