A Day In The Life Of An Average College Student
The Clever

After spending some time in the library procrastinating everything on my to-do list, my friend and I found ourselves reminiscing on an average day in the life of a college student. We decided that it would be "super funny" to document what it's actually like to be a student at a large university. Sometimes college life isn't as glamorous as it seems.

9:00 a.m.

First alarm. No.

9:27 a.m.

Coincidentally waking up three minutes before my second alarm is supposed to go off. Still no.

9:30 a.m.

I can sleep for ten more minutes if I just don't bathe for the third day in a row. *Snooze*

9:40 a.m.

I actually wake up, but spend too much time scrolling through any and all social media platforms to avoid leaving the comfort of my bed.

9:50 a.m.

Stepping out of bed.

9:51 a.m.

Making my way to the car and leaving for class.

9:59 a.m.

Fighting for a parking spot as if I was in the Hunger Games.

10:07 a.m.

Finally made it to class (only seven minutes late) and find the furthest possible seat from the professor that made eye contact with me when I came in late with Starbucks.

10:13 a.m.

Scrolling through Facebook and paying absolutely no attention to anything going on in class.

10:17 a.m.

Debating leaving class early because I want to make it to Chick-Fil-A breakfast.

10:29 a.m.

Ended up leaving class early. Just made it to Chick-Fil-A breakfast only to be told that they're out of chicken minis.

10:45 a.m.

Made it back home. Nap.

1:00 p.m.

Wake up for 1:30 class.

1:33 p.m.

Frantically speed-walking to class from (yet again) the worst possible parking spot. Almost got hit (yet again) by a freshman/athlete on a hoverboard.

1:38 p.m.

The professor didn't notice me come in late today because he was passing out the exam that I didn't know about.

2:15 p.m.

Handed in the exam that I didn't know about and hope for the best. Worst case scenario I'll just change my major for the fifth time (this semester).

2:30 p.m.

Made it home from class again. Nap, again.

6:00 p.m.

Good morning. I'm not sure where I am or how I got here but I feel well rested.

6:01 p.m.

Ramen, for the twelfth day in a row. I really need to go grocery shopping.

6:03 p.m.


8:30 p.m.

Get ready for pregame.

10:00 p.m.

Super late to pregame but at least I'm here. Shots.

2:30 a.m.


2:33 a.m.

Taco Bell.

3-something a.m.

Time for bed after another overwhelming day in college.

9:00 a.m.

First alarm. No.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
