Signs You Hit The Sophomore Slump

The sophomore slump: The time where a college student is taken down reality and see what college really entails.

1. You No Longer Care About Meeting New People

Your freshmen year was spent meeting new people all the time and becoming friends with whatever said people you formed a good connection with. But this year, you are worn out from meeting all the people that you do and you could not care less about making new friends.

2. You Are Really Poor

As if you were not already by freshmen year.

3. You Still Don't Know What You Want to Major In

Honestly, this is stressed about way too often. Almost half of college graduates do not even go into careers related to their majors right out of college.

4. You Question Why You Are Still In College

A really obvious sign that you are slumping. Many people are not fully sure why they are in college but they can usually name a few reasons why. But what really shows you are in the slump is if you do not understand what your purpose of being in college is.

5. You Are Struggling More With Classes

Classes are bound to get more difficult beyond freshmen year. But this jump hit you way too hard.

6. You Cannot Take Any More Cafeteria Food

Cafeteria food is your enemy. You avoid it as much as you possibly can.

7. You Aren't Having As Much Fun As Freshmen Year

This is bound to happen as you most likely do not have that much time on your hands. But the late weekend nights don't give you as much joy and neither do the activities that get you through the week.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.
