Rainy Days In College, As Told By 'New Girl'

Rainy Days In College, As Told By 'New Girl'

Some how making it to class untouched by the rain.

This past week it, unfortunately, rained Monday through Wednesday and for a college student that happens to be a nightmare. Having to walk across campus in the pouring rain and sometimes an umbrella is not enough to keep you dry. These days never fail to be a horrible day and sometimes we wonder if it will ever stop as the day just drags on. I present to you, rainy days in college as told by New Girl.

1. Waking up and looking outside to see it is pouring...

The worse is when it was just sprinkling when you are getting ready and once you actually have to start walking to class is just starts down pouring.

2. Walking across campus and still getting wet even though you have a rain coat and umbrella...

Do not expect to stay completely dry while walking to classes because it is highly unlikely.

3. When it not only rains but its super windy and your umbrella turns inside out.

I can not think of anything more annoying than this. Not even an umbrella is helpful and to the people who laugh...thank you because I will be there to laugh at you next time as well.

4. Somehow making it to class untouched by the rain

Wow, what an accomplishment. Let's just hope that things stay on the positive side.

5. OR show up to class soaked

Could today get any worse? Do I even want to know the mess I have become? It is best to stay away from the mirror for the day.

6. When the rain still has not stopped even for a minute

Is it possible to get a break or must I suffer all day? Soon beginning to wish for a better day or even a better place because the gloomy and rainy day has just become too much to handle.

7. When you see someone walking to class without an umbrella or a rain coat

Sometimes I am unsure if they have an umbrella and just choose not to use it but I feel like that would be a poor decision. I feel for these people who have to sit in class soaked...

8. Finally getting back to the dorm room but realizing you have to go back out again

Forgetting that you have a meeting or another class or maybe it is dinner time. By the time it is this late in the day you contemplate if it is even worth it to make another trip across campus.

9. At the end of the day, you are completely over the rain

You refuse to go outside anymore and rather lay in bed contemplating life while eating comfort food. What a rough day it was...

10. You go to bed praying that it will not rain tomorrow and when you wake up to see the sunshine you celebrate!

You celebrate because today will be a better day than yesterday!

Rainy days in college are dreadful. These days are made for Netflix and sleeping but in college we must be adults and go to classes. We cannot afford to miss them all the time. We just have to pray that the rainy day will only last one day and not half of the week. Then again it is April, so stay dry college kids.

The 10 Stages Of A 2:30 P.M. Kickoff, As Told By Alabama Students

But we still say Roll MF Tide!


We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness


What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst


It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen


Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad


Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin


Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate


Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny


More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body


Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you. 


Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.


I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!

I Made Emma Chamberlain's Mediocre Vegan Cookies, And They're Pretty Incredible

Emma and her vegan cookies have made their way into my heart, and are here to stay.


One day, I went down the black hole that is 'YouTube at 3 am' and discovered my favorite social media influencer of all time: Emma Chamberlain. I started binge watching her videos every night for about a week, where I came across her "Cooking With Emma" series. I decided that I wanted to give her vegan antics a go for myself.

I've never cooked or baked anything with the intention of it being vegan, so not only is that new territory for me, but I've never even eaten a vegan cookie. The only reason I'm doing this is because Emma did, and she is aesthetic goals.

To start the journey of vegan baking, I took to Pinterest, just like Emma, and found this recipe to use. Although the video that inspired all of this used a gluten free recipe, I opted for only vegan, because I'm allergic to most of the ingredients that make things gluten-free.

In true Emma style, I used a whisk to combine the wet ingredients together, making sure to use her special technique.

Then, I did the same thing with the dry ingredients.

After that, I dumped everything together and combined all of the ingredients.

Once they were combined, I chopped up a vegan chocolate bar, because Emma and I like chocolate chunk cookies, not chocolate chip, there's a difference.

Now that everything is combined, I made balls of dough and stuck it on a pan, and baked them while I binged more Emma, because what else would I be doing in my spare time?

The recipe said to make the balls a lot smaller, but we aren't perfect, so I made them gigantic. In my head, I thought the worst thing that could happen was it turn into one big cookie, but that's a whole other video you need to watch.

I took them out of the oven, and they were brown on the top, but still a little doughy. At this point I was tired of waiting and eager to eat them, so I disappointingly set them aside to cool, which only lasted a minute or so before I snagged one up to try.

The taste was definitely one I've never associated with cookies, and came to the conclusion that if I decided to go vegan, it would be doable with these cookies and Emma Chamberlain by my side.

Emma inspired me to get out of my comfort zone, which is a reoccurring theme throughout her channel, and I'm happy to be apart of it. She taught me that even if mediocre cookies is all you have, eat them with pride because you made them yourself.
