10 Things College Students Are NOT Thankful For This Thanksgiving
Start writing a post

With Thanksgiving among us, we're beginning to enter into the holiday season. This is a time typically filled with food, fun, and family. But if you're anything like me, it's also filled with reflection.

I can't help but think about how thankful I am, to be where I am right now.

But I also cannot seem to shake the feeling of how thankful I'm not for certain aspects of my life. If you're a college to student, I can assure you... you are not thankful for these either.

1. Professors that give homework over Thanksgiving break


Seriously though? What kind of heathen do you have to be to assign something for over the break! It's a BREAK for a reason.

2. All the money that is NOT in my wallet... or bank account


The #brokelyfe that comes with being in college is a serious struggle. Ever wanted a slice $2 slice of pizza but only had $0.17 on your debit card?

3. Final Exams


I cannot, have not, and will not be thankful for any of my final exams. RIP to all of those who have them back to back!

4. Group Projects


Group project? Oh! I thought you said I do all the work and then my group reaps all the benefits because they're slackers.

5. Dining Hall Food


Word of advice- chicken fingers are always the safest bet.

6. Parking at my school


S/o to the all the spots in the back of Rider's residence lot!

7. That one professor who thinks their class is your only class


There's nothing more stressful and infuriating than having to stay up all night and doing homework for a professor that doesn't understand that this is only three of your 15 credits this semester and you're only in their class because its a graduation requirement.

8. Walking to class in the the cold, or the snow


The only thing that makes this worse is when you get to your class room and it is a literal sauna. Why am I having to dress for two seasons here?

9.  Forgetting your umbrella in your car


It's always the day of a surprise rain shower that you conveniently forgot your umbrella in your passenger seat.

10. Student Loans


So eternally not thankful for crippling debt.

Happy Thanksgiving Y'all! ;)

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
