10 Resolutions College Students Can Actually Keep This Year

Every year around New Years, people begin making their resolutions. Losing weight, working out, or trying to be a better person. (All valid resolutions, but never upheld.) College students are probably the worse at holding their resolutions. So I've compiled a list of resolutions that shouldn't be too hard to follow.

1. Go to class

You are paying all that money to attend that class, so why on earth are you going to skip those classes? The more classes you go to the more likely you are to pass that class. Try putting some more effort into the thousands of dollars you are spending.

2. Wash your hair every other day, not every 5th day

Dry shampoo only goes so far. Washing your hair every day is bad for it, but every other day can really make a difference. It is a good habit to get in with, and you can pair it with your gym schedule as well.

3. Don't do laundry if you have class in 15 minutes

Nobody likes when someones laundry is just sitting there ready to be taken out. It is annoying and inconsiderate. Do your laundry when you have time to do your laundry, not when it is most convenient for you to let it sit in there for hours

4. Budget your money

Take some initiative and finally figure out your money. You might have a bunch of it saved up, but what are you doing with it? Spending it on alcohol or on investments like a car?

5. Only go out once a weekend

Do your body a favor and only go out once a weekend. That much alcohol at such a young age can actually be bad for us, by the way. Find other fun things to go do with your friends that don't always involve alcohol.

6. Delete your Tinder

Do yourself a favor by deleting your Tinder. Hookups can be fun, no doubt, but it is time to move past that toxic environment that Tinder can create. You are better than that.

7. Choose healthier food options

It can be hard on campus to find healthy options, but they are there. Stop being picky and start eating healthy. It is OK to eat unhealthy every once in a while, but if you want to feel better, eat better.

8. Stay on top of homework

Don't wait until the last day to do a paper. Stress can sometimes be a burden you put on yourself. Set deadlines and standards for yourself with homework. It can help you produce better quality work too.

9. Get to bed on time

With staying on top of homework, you can also get to bed at reasonable times during the week now. This can improve your mood and academic performance overall.

10. Stop caring what others think

Generic, but true. Everyone is so caught up in the social scene at college, that we sometimes forget to focus on ourselves and what we think of ourself. Don't let others define you this next school year, and just do you boo.

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.
