10 Things College Students Are NOT Thankful For This Thanksgiving

A short list of things that I'm not grateful for this holiday season.

10 Things College Students Are NOT Thankful For This Thanksgiving

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! ;)

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
