17 Relatable College Moments As Told By 'Shameless' GIFs

Much like college life, there is never a dull moment in the series 'Shameless.'


When we aren't at class, studying, or out with friends, we are probably binge-watching Shameless on Netflix. If you've seen Shameless, you know that there are constantly conflicts emerging and quick, high-stakes decisions being made. College can be a rocky part of life, filled with some of the highest highs and the lowest lows. What better show could represent the major ups and downs of college life than 'Shameless'? Here are 17 times Shameless GIFs accurately described college life.

1. When you realize you'll spend the majority of your career paying off your education:


College education is a scam. It also happens to be a mandatory scam (depending on the job you want to have) that could determine the route of the rest of your life. If you have a dream job that happens to require a college degree, it's a necessary evil. But if you are truly passionate about your dream job, it'll all be worth it in the end, right? Let's hope so.

2. When you eat food from the dining hall for the first time:


Speaking of scams, spending around a little under a thousand dollars a semester for a meal plan was one of the biggest mistakes of my freshman year.

3. When someone in your group takes complete control of the group project:


Being put in a group with people who aren't willing to contribute anything to a project is the worst. But when someone else takes the lead and wants to do everything them self, how could you say no to that?

4. When you have a heart to heart conversation with drunk girls at a party and they shower you with compliments:


Drunk girls are the biggest confidence boosters. They instantly become best friends with everyone in their path and have good things to say about everyone.

5. Checking your bank account after a weekend out like:


Your wallet might not agree with your "work hard play hard" mentality, but you deserve to have some fun after a week of work.

6. When you fall for a frat boy's games and are genuinely surprised that he doesn't text you back:


Even though you've been warned, you still never see it coming.

7. When you finally get the courage to check your grades:


Is it too late to ask for extra credit?

8. When you wake up and find out that your first class of the day is cancelled:


That extra hour makes a huge difference.

9. When it's halfway through the semester and someone sits in the unassigned seat you've been sitting in all semester:


It's an unspoken rule. Don't be the person who breaks it.

10. When you pull an all nighter during finals week:


You've gotta do what you gotta do.

11. When you realize you've been skipping class all semester and the final is in a week:


Is it possible to cram in an entire semester in two days? It's worth a shot.

12. When your parents ask how the semester is going:


Don't. Just don't.

13. When you get an A on something you didn't actually study for: 


If only it happened more often.

14. When your family asks about your future plans:


Don't we all?

15. When it's finally Halloweekend:


In college, Halloween is the best holiday. Hands down.

16. When someone asks if you're hungover:


Is it that obvious?

17. When your roommate comes home late and wakes you up in the middle of the night:


Does anyone else understand sleep etiquette?

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.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
