6 Struggles Of Being A College Student

If you are a college student you can definitely relate. College is a beautiful thing, you are getting an education all while having the time of your life, but with fun comes responsibility. Here are six struggles of being a college student.

1. Getting up early:

Sure, you got up early for school your whole life. You're probably thinking this will be a piece of cake, but in all reality you don't have an angry parent dragging your ass out of bed anymore. There will be plenty of times you are going to want to skip that 8 AM but you just got do it. Mommy and Daddy won't punish you for not going but you'll be paying the price in the long run. You're on your own now kid!

2. Being a broke b*tch:

You should probably get a job, but you probably won't, and if you do it'll be once a week because your whole schedule is full with classes. So basically your just working to pay for your alcohol next weekend cause lets face that's all you need anyways.

3. Roomie Probs:

You either love your roommate or you don't. Either way you'll want to tear each others hair out because she left your straightener on overnight. You won't agree with everything she does but you still love her because she's your best friend. She will influence you HARD. If she's not going to class neither are you... BACK TO BED. THANKS GIRL :)

4. College Tuition:

You literally have to be living on the damn street to receive financial aid. It's tough as a college student having to think about all of the loans you are going to be buried in and paying for the rest of your life. Like c'mon we just want an education and to be successful and make money, yet we are paying money to make money!!!!! It's all so confusing, your still young so you probably just let your parents deal with it. My advice to you is to start making a plan and realizing what's going on. HAHA thats pretty much all I have to say about that.

5. Time management:

Okay, you are an adult now. You have classes, possibly a job, you need to eat because you are a human, also go to the gym so that you don't gain weight from all of that alcohol consumption, and lets be real you need a nap too. BUT you gotta plan all this stuff out first because your schedule is clearly SO crazy.

6. Walking around campus:

If you go to a big school, getting your running shoes on, you have ways to walk!!!! Your first class of the day is on the other side of campus and your next class is back where you started just for you to have your third class of the day where your first class was so that you can walk back to your dorm where your second class is. Sounds confusing right? College students will understand the pain. And stairs.... FORGET IT. Walking up three flights of stairs with your back back on is like entering the gates of hell.. literally. I dread those stairs everyday but hey, you get nice legs and cute booty so theirs a plus. ;)

Sure, college has many more than six struggles but it is 100% the best time of your life despite your responsibilities. You're young, so have FUN, but be safe!!!!

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.
