Calling all Knoxvillians: still need to sign a lease for this upcoming school year? You’re in luck, because The Knox still has some openings!

The Knox is a brand new, state-of-the-art apartment community located on Clinch Avenue in Fort Sanders. This location is perfect for students, with campus and the Strip both within walking distance. If you don’t feel like walking some days (when it’s sunny and 90 degrees), The Knox is also in range of the UT bus route with stops nearby.

This area is also serviced by UTPD, so students can have peace of mind that no matter how late they’re out and about, they can have the full college experience in a welcoming environment.

There are a variety of floor plans, all fully furnished, and almost every bedroom has their own bathroom. All of the apartments even include a “42-inch TV in the living room,” which is unheard of. The Knox is also pet friendly, which is a huge one-up on several other sites so close to campus. To top it off, each apartment comes with its own washer and dryer, so begging for quarters only to sit at the Laundromat for hours is a thing of the past.

One of my biggest struggles of being a college student is efficient time management. It’s hard to go to classes, work, finish homework and then get in that daily workout! The Knox has this taken care of with their own fitness center, with 24/7 access. If working out at 2 a.m. is a priority, this is the place for you. Oh, and for those winter months or pre-spring break, there is also free tanning!

Their clubhouse is also remarkable, with free printing, pool tables, a coffee bar, and individual study rooms if the five minute walk to Hodges just seems unbearable one night.

There will be student programming to meet your neighbors, hang out with your roommates, and to better yourself and your future. Some of these include karaoke nights, resume building workshops, music nights, game nights and crawfish boils! Some of these programs will take place on their beautiful entertainment deck, which has hot tubs, big screen televisions, and plenty of room to grill out with all your friends this fall.

The most important aspect, though, is that The Knox WILL be ready for move-in by August 6th! This is more than enough time to get settled into your new home, and even decorate a bit before classes start. Other apartments are running behind, but The Knox is pushing forward successfully to make sure every student has a place to call “home.”

8 Struggles Of Being 21 And Looking 12

The struggle is real, my friends.

“You'll appreciate it when you're older." Do you know how many times my mom has told me this? Too many to count. Every time I complain about looking young that is the response I get. I know she's right, I will love looking young when I'm in my 40s. However, looking young is a real struggle in your 20s. Here's what we have to deal with:

1. Everyone thinks your younger sister or brother is the older one.

True story: someone actually thought my younger sister was my mom once. I've really gotten used to this but it still sucks.

2. You ALWAYS get carded.

Every. Single. Time. Since I know I look young, I never even bothered with a fake ID my first couple of years of college because I knew it would never work. If I'm being completely honest, I was nervous when I turned 21 that the bartender would think my real driver's license was a fake.

3. People look at your driver's license for an awkward amount of time.

So no one has actually thought my real driver's license is fake but that doesn't stop them from doing a double take and giving me *that look.* The look that says, “Wow, you don't look that old." And sometimes people will just flat out say that. The best part is this doesn't just happen when you're purchasing alcohol. This has happened to me at the movie theater.

4. People will give you *that look* when they see you drinking alcohol.

You just want to turn around and scream “I'M 21, IT'S LEGAL. STOP JUDGING ME."

5. People are shocked to find out you're in college.

If I had a dollar for every time someone had a shocked expression on their face after I told them I'm a junior in college I could pay off all of my student loan debt. It's funny because when random people ask me how school is going, I pretty much assume they think I'm in high school and the shocked look on their face when I start to talk about my college classes confirms I'm right.

6. For some reason wearing your hair in a ponytail makes you look younger.

I don't understand this one but it's true. Especially if I don't have any makeup on I could honestly pass for a child.

7. Meeting an actual 12-year-old who looks older than you.

We all know one. That random 12-year-old who looks extremely mature for her age and you get angry because life isn't fair.

8. Being handed a kids' menu.

This is my personal favorite. It happens more often than it should. The best part of this is it's your turn to give someone a look. The look that says, "You've got to be kidding me".

Looking young is a real struggle and I don't think everyone realizes it. However, with all the struggles that come with looking young, we still take advantage of it. Have you ever gone to a museum or event where if you're under a certain age you get in for a discounted price? Yeah? Well, that's when I bet you wish you were us. And kids' meals are way cheaper than regular meals so there have definitely been a couple times when I've kept that kids' menu.

So, all in all, it's not the worst thing in the world but it's definitely a struggle.

5 Stores You Should Never Take Your Girlfriend To, Because You'll NEVER Get Out

You've heard the jokes about Target... they're real. It's a real problem.

There are some stores that really are money suckers... everything is cheap and cute, and you just want to buy everything. Guys, here are the seven stores you should NEVER, EVER, under ANY circumstances, shop at with your girlfriend!

1. Target

Never EVER take your girlfriend here! She'll find an irresistable pair of booties she HAS to buy, or a cute new top, or some comfy sweats that would look super cute with that hoodie of yours. Don't do it.... just don't.

2. T.J.Maxx

This is another trap. Everything is cute and name-brand, and there will be something she wants, I promise. Last time I was there they had Tommy Hilfiger sweatshirts on sale... really had to demonstrate self-control there.

3. Bath and Body Works

This one is especially dangerous because there's ALWAYS a sale, and you normally get a bunch of free products, so trying to not buy something is really REALLY hard. I always cave, I can't help it.

4. Yankee Candle, or any candle store.

Candles are like a thing I buy and never use but can't talk myself out of buying. I love the way they smell, but I always forget about them. It's a slippery slope, and once you get started it's hard to stop buying them.

5. Forever 21

Want a new outfit for the weekend? $20 and you're set. Girls LOVE Forever21, and it's so hard to say no when you find something you love for $10...

Well, fellas, I hope this list helped if you want to save money and/or time! Girlies, what are your favorite stores I forgot to mention?
