A College Student’s Daily Schedule in Quarantine

It's pretty wack.

A College Student’s Daily Schedule in Quarantine

These few weeks have been crazy for all of us I'm sure. As a college student, it's hard to find the motivation to do anything in the comfort of my home. I try to get into a set schedule, but it never works out. Here's how my days usually go:

9:00 AM

I have my alarm set to wake me up. I slap the snooze button and go back to bed.

11:00 AM

After hitting snooze for the past two hours, I finally wake up. I don't get out of bed though. Instead, I remain under the warmth of my blankets and scroll through social media.

12:30 PM

I finally drag myself out of bed and trudge down the stairs in my pajamas to fix myself some breakfast. My mom is always at the table eating lunch and shaking her head in disappointment. After breakfast, I lounge about on the sofa and watch some videos on the internet. I might check my emails, it just depends on the day. I have schoolwork to do, but I just don't have the effort to do it.

3:00 PM

The realization that I have due dates approaching hits me and I reluctantly brush my teeth and hair before shuffling into my room and beginning some work.

6:00 PM

I take a break from schoolwork to eat dinner. I lounge around for another hour, talking with my family and relaxing, before I take a shower to wake myself up for a night of schoolwork.

9:00 PM

I get super stressed about all the work that I have to do so I hunker down and get super focused on some schoolwork.

10:00 PM

I start to get tired and mentally burnt out so I take a small break to relax my creative muscles by writing. I've got a personal creative writing project that I'm working on progressively. Then I spend the next hour or so finishing up the schoolwork I started earlier.

12:00 AM

To chill out before bed, I brew some relaxing tea, grab a light snack, and snuggle up with some blankets to watch some TV shows.

1:00 AM

I tell myself I'll go to bed at this time and wake up at 9:00 AM. That doesn't happen. Instead I start listening to some music; a terrible decision.

3:00 AM

Everyone in my household is asleep, even my cat. Meanwhile, I'm doing a full on performance in my room to "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" donning a hoodie and a pair of sunglasses. It's become a nightly ritual.

3:15 AM

A sad song comes on shuffle and I have a mini existential crisis.

3:30 AM

I'm back in the groove and start vibing to the Eagles.

4:00 AM

I realize how late it is and actually get to bed.

The whole cycle repeats itself. It's such a hard cycle to break.

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
