How you doin' with that 8 am?

The 10 Stages Of Going To Class As Told By "Friends"

How you doin with the realization of classes starting back up? Summer flew by, and coming back to campus is definitely a swirl of mixed emotions. We're replacing 3 AM drives with 8 AM lectures, and it is time to transition back into the realities of the school year. The first day of classes are different for everyone, but the "Friends" cast accurately describes the 10 stages of going back to class quite accurately.

1. Waking up at 7 am after sleeping in until noon the last few months.

...Let's face it, we're all going to press snooze at least three times before we actually get up.

2. Since it is the first day of class, you accept the fact you should maybe dress semi-presentable today, because God knows the rest of the semester is destined for sweatpants.

Overly sized t-shirts, running shorts, baseball caps and Birkenstocks are my go-to, if I'm being honest.

3. The walk of shame to the dining center for that first breakfast before 9 am.

Let's not forget the iconic face of makeup from last night that we were too lazy to take off.

4. Finally seeing your bestie and showing your true colors around them.

Ladies, nuff said.

5. Seeing that guy you may (or may not have) tried to avoid all last semester...

6. And then realizing you have a class with him!!

7. When your professor calls on you to answer something you clearly weren't listening to.

Fun tip: if you want to avoid this, sit in the front row of lecture halls because professors will (purposely) call on the kids slumped over in the back rows... And this actually happens often!

8. When class ends and you think that you're in the clear, but then realize you have the rest of the day ahead of you... and the rest of the semester.

But don't worry, once you make it through midterms, it's smooth sailing... until finals.

9. You for real now finish the day and are overcome with joy!

This is by far the best part of the day.

10. After the long day, you realize that these are the best four years of your life, and it's time to enjoy them!

There you have it, you survived day one of class! More than likely, this will happen again tomorrow and the next day... Maybe the day after that, who knows? You only have four more years, so enjoy every moment with the friends who will always be there for you.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
