10 Things To Remember Going Into Your Last Day Of School

I'm heading into my last year of college, and I can't believe it! Four years later, and I'm one more year left of getting my degrees. It's crazy. I know I'm not the only one that is in the same boat as I am. Here are 10 things to remember as you enter your last year of college.

1. Enjoy your last year

This is your last year of college. Enjoy it. Don't take it for granted. When you are older, and look back at your time in college, what do you want to look back at?

2. Don't stress about grades

Yes, grades are important, but they aren't that important. Just try your best. College is not just about the grades. It's so much more than that.

3. Just be yourself

I know this sounds cliche, but it is so true. Just be yourself because everyone else is already taken. Yes, there will be people who won't like you, but the right people will like you. And you will be so much more happier if you just stop pretending.

4. Go to sporting events

Try to go to at least one sporting game even if it's a little bit. In my opinion, they are a lot of fun,and even more fun with some friends by your side.

5. Go to some events on campus

Whether it's a musical, art show, homecoming, and so on. Attend something. Find something that interest you.

6. Join something

It's never too late to join something. There is so much that is offered on campus between clubs and orgs. There is something for everyone.

7. Enjoy the time that you spend with your friends

Because once you all graduate, you won't be able hang out every day or almost every day like you did during college. You won't get to see them often as you would like post-graduation. So, take advantage of the late night hangouts, studying the university center or library, going to get something eat, and so on. Your friends won't be in a three mile radius of you. So, enjoy it while you can.

8. Try new things

This is your time to try new things. Yes, you might get the chance after graduation, but it won't be the same. During college, you can go do things on a whim, or at least most of the time unlike in post-graduation where you will have a job along with other things and you won't get a chance to do as much as you want to.

9. You may or may not find the love of your life in college

Some find their love of their lives in college. Some don't. That's okay. You are in your early twenties. There is still a lot of time left. Trust me.

10. When you do graduate, remember to take a step back, and look at all you have accomplished

You graduated! Whether it took four, five, six, or eight. Who cares? You got that degree still. That is a major accomplishment. If you were in a sport, band, musical, club, etc... Look at all you accomplishment these past few years. Doesn't it feel good? You got through all the ups and downs of college and life. And you made it!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
