Secret Grinch Moments We All Have: College Edition

Let us all come to accept that we can relate to this green, hairy, monster more than we'd like to admit.

Secret Grinch Moments We All Have: College Edition

As much as we don't want to face it, we all have a little bit of the "Grinch Syndrome." Whenever "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" comes on, we look at the TV and think, "I understand this sad, scary man." Every day of the week we can find ourselves relating to this green, gross, hairy monster that we've all come to know and love. It's totally fine. But with the holidays approaching it should be acceptable, right?

Buying all the required books for our classes that we will never open

In the beginning of the year, we always set goals for ourselves. “I'm going to buy all the required books and read every chapter as we go along in class.” Yeah, right. But as the semester chugs along, our brains begin to infuse with hatred towards these books. We despise the existence of these books and learning, school, homework, tests, and learning once again.

Because my meal plan says I can visit the cafeteria whenever I'd like

Write the five-page paper due on Monday? Nah. Read chapter seven of your psychology book? Nah. Study for exam on Friday? Nah. Hang out with friends? Nah. Eat? Always.

I guess I'll just stop trying to be a student now

When you raise your hand confidently because you think you have the correct answer, but you’re totally off and your professor puts you in your place. Shot down quick.

I didn't actually bomb that test if I don't remember it, right?

When you're more than confident that the only thing you got right on your paper was the answer next to "Name."

"It's OK. I'm totally fine." *Sweat slowly drips down face*

College: Having two five-page papers due Monday, a presentation on Tuesday, a seven-chapter test on Friday, and no time to not completely lose it. Yes, our schedules are booked always. Yes, we're at prime-time insanity.

When you have the amount of emotions/personalities to fill up a room of 20 people

Hello. I'm happy, sad, anxious, silly, and angry all in one -- nice to meet you, too.

After spending your entire day in bed

Days of isolating yourself grow old, and you realize you haven't talked to anyone but your mom and yourself.

Who doesn't love quality time spent with me, myself and I

Are you kidding me? You did not seriously just knock on my door and come into my room while I was napping did you? Remove yourself.

Subtweeting every guy who thinks it's okay to look like a Lumberjack

Guys, please do not participate in "No-Shave November." That is all.

Trying to focus on studies and restrain yourself from screaming "1738" when Fetty comes on

The sickening moment where you're stuck writing a 10-page paper, and everyone in your dorm is bumping music getting ready to go out on a Saturday night.

Nails not done. Hair not done. Everything not done. We're on the college budget

Early classes are a blow. You think I’m getting all dressed up for my 7:45? Heck no. But we still cute though.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
