A Poem From A College Student

At least I'm trying

A Poem From A College Student

Roses are red and violets are blue,

I haven't slept since about week two.

I think I'm dying, or maybe getting sick,

Either way, I just hope it happens quick.

My laundry and assignments are piling up,

I don't know which to start first.

Why can I only find one sock?

Ugh, this is the worst.

"Maybe I should just drop out,"

I think to myself at least three times a day.

I just really miss my cat,

What can I say?

This week is never ending,

The weekend must be close.

PSYCH! It's only Tuesday.

I am literally so done.

Wasn't this whole college thing supposed to be fun?

I try to get at least eight hours of sleep at night,

And usually I do.

Except on Thirsty Thursdays,

Oh what a delight!

It's not that I go out,

No, that's not really my thing.

But it's very hard to sleep at night,

With people in the hallway who love to scream and shout.

Now I've lost my train of thought,

I had something to say.

I guess I should just stop here,

Call it a day.

There are definitely lots of things I should be doing,

Assignments or whatever.

Or I could just stay in bed and binge on Netflix,

Yes, that sounds so much better.

Well now that I've sufficiently procrastinated,

I should probably get back to work.

There's always something I should be doing,

Reality is such a jerk.

I'm pretty sure this stress is aging me,

Is it really worth it?

Sometimes I think not.

But then I look into my wallet, at the two dollars I have left.

"Yeah," I say with a sigh, "That's what I thought."

Okay, time to focus,

Now I mean it for real.

I need to find that other sock,

And maybe have a cup of tea.

Man, this college life is crazy,

Please #prayforme

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
