The End Of College As Told By Ron Swanson

Surprisingly, my second year of college is almost over. It is crazy to think about how quickly the year flew by. From the study nights to hanging out with my friends, college has been a hectic roller coaster of high and low moments. But overall, I am so thankful to have met the incredible people who I have met who inspire me to be better every day. I am thankful to be continuing to be making unforgettable memories. I am thankful to be at a college that I love so much that I want to spend an extra four years here.

The only person who can properly express my emotions about almost graduating is the fucking man himself: Ron fucking Swanson. His sarcasm, honesty, and anger go very well with how I am feeling towards leaving Marist College much sooner than I think because I know for a fact that the next two years ahead of me are going to be over in the blink of an eye. It is scary to think that before I know it, I will be on the campus green receiving my diploma. However, despite all of these scary thoughts that I have, I am certain that my family, friends, and Ron fucking Swanson have my back.

1. When people remind me that I am not a teenager anymore and that I am almost done with college:

2. When I realize that I need a job:

3. When I am hanging out with my freshmen friends and I think about what it was like to be young again:

4. When I am in an interview for a job or an internship:

5. When I have to write more complex essays and I can't figure out what to say next:

6. When the work just keeps piling and piling up:

7. When people try to tell you how great #adulting is:

8. When you are procrastinating on finding a job and doing your work:

9. When somehow everything just falls magically together into one place and you are making money:

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
