Probably the worst part of the four best years.

College is supposed to be the four best years of your life, right? Sometimes it can be hard to remember that as you sit under the bright fluorescent lights of the library as everyone else slowly starts to leave and return to their bedrooms. On weekends and any time your with your friends, it's easy to remember how great college is, and then Monday rolls around. In 20 years are you gonna remember all the late nights with your head spent buried in a book? Probably not, but unfortunately you're technically there for a degree.

Everyone's been there, whether it's just a super late night or a night with no sleep, here are 31 thoughts you have when pulling an allnighter.

Why didn’t I do this sooner?

I should make a to-do list. 

I'm hungry.

Wow all my friends are leaving me.

At least no one can judge me, they're also here at (insert early hour of the morning). 

When is too soon for a study break?

Well, I should at least let my Snapchat streaks know where I am.

Okay I have to work now, but wow there's so much to do.

This is overwhelming.

Next week I'll sleep more. 

Okay if I just finish this one thing, then I can take a break. 

What should I do during my break?!


Finally snack time. 

Back to work.

This time I need music. 

But not this song. 

Or this one. 

Okay music on now back to work. 

Look at me actually working. 

It's a new day, should I change the date on this assignment?

If I finish this by 3, then I can get home and at least have 4-ish hours of sleep.

*actually works for a while*

Wow I was so productive!

I deserve another break.

*20 minutes of Instagram stalking later*

Why was I just stalking my own account?

This time I'm really gonna get work done. 


Oops, I promised myself I'd go home two hours ago.

*Deliriously walks back to dorm, while thinking about deep life questions*

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
