11 Shamelessly Predictable Thoughts College Kids Have Every Day Walking To Class

11 Shamelessly Predictable Thoughts College Kids Have Every Day Walking To Class

`We have all thought of at least ONE of these.

We have all roughly been there, walking at 7:30 in the morning, in the rain, the snow, or even a bright sunny day.

College Students trail their tracks in order to get to class and in the journey of doing so, many thoughts go along the way that the average college student thinks

1. Do I really have to go to class?

I feel this on such a spiritual level. There have been several times when I am lying in my bed, staring at the ceiling and wonder if today’s class is necessary. I have even looked at the syllabus to see if it is a class worth skipping. But in the end, most of us end up going.

2. *Checks email* I wonder if class got cancelled

There are some professors out in the world who have the same vibes as us when it comes to school. I personally have had a professor cancel class because he was not “feeling it” but hey, I am not complaining, so every morning my phone is on full blast waiting for the email and even when walking to class, we all make the silent prayer that we can turn around and head back to our nice comfy beds.

3. I need coffee, right now

I have not had this need for coffee until last semester (the friends who brought me into the coffee world know exactly who they are). So now I am apart of the “I need coffee now” group. When walking to class, a lot of us feel as those something is missing without the warm beverage in our hand. While others are possibly flipping out because they do not have their second cup already in front of them.

4. I forgot my book!

Been there...I just keep walking.

5. Sorry I am not walking fast enough for you!

Whether it is driving or walking on the sidewalk, there is always a person who feels as if they are running a marathon to class and then they are hightailing your butt and then the second they get the chance, they cut in front of you. Uh rude much! I do not know about you all, but I feel slightly insulted when this happens to me. My bad you did not wake up early enough and have to sprint to class.

6. Why does that guy keep staring at me

When the campus has the whole “two-way street” thing, it is pretty normal to see people you know walk to campus so you smile. But then there are times when someone is looking at you and you don’t know who they are. You look down at the ground, your phone and look back up and Lord behold, they are still looking at you. It’ll be creepy for a second but the moment will soon pass.

7. Ah it's cold, today is not a cute day

Especially where I go to school, it can go from 50 degrees to 4 degrees in 12 hours. So I would look out the window and think “IT’S SWEATS DAY” and bundle up from head to toe. So I’m not slaying, oh well, I’m cozy af though.

8. If I wear my sunglasses no one will know I’m looking at them

I’m invisible, no one will talk to me, the sun won’t burn my eyes. Sunglasses are one of the best inventions of all time.

9. Stupid wind *pushes hair from face*

Where is my hair tie when I need it?

10. If I speed walk I only have to leave my room 15 minutes early instead of 20

This is what I call practical mathematics.

11. Elevator or Stairs…*laughs* *presses elevator button*

No explanation.

You May Have Worn The Prom Dress With Him, But I Get To Wear The Wedding Dress

You had him in high school, but I get him for the rest of my life.

High school seems like the best time of your life when you are in it. You think that all of your friends will be with you until the end, and that you will end up with whoever you are dating your senior year. For very few, that might just be the case. For all others, that is far from true.

You thought that you would marry your boyfriend and you thought that everything would work out how you had always imagined. I don't blame you though. He's great. You wanted everything with him, but you were just not right for him.

I wish I could say that I am sorry it didn't work out for you, but I can't. I can't because he is mine now, and I get to cherish him forever. You didn't do that right, and you were not meant to be together. You will find someone too, but I am happy that you were not the one for him.

Sometimes I have issues with jealousy, and I hate that you got all of the high school stuff with him. You got to go to games and support him. It kills me that I couldn't be there for him because I know I would have actually been there wholeheartedly. I would have done it out of love, not as a popularity appearance.

I hate that you got to go to all of the school dances with him. He got to see you all dressed up and probably told you how great you looked. I'm sure you did look great. Prom dresses were always fun to pick out and so colorful. It was exciting to match colors with your date. I am sure you had fun choosing his matching tux to your dress.

I find myself getting jealous, but then I stop. I am getting to match his tux with our wedding colors. I got to go dress shopping in a sea of white, and he doesn't get to know one detail about that dress yet. He will get to see me walk down the aisle and then every day forever. I get to love him forever.

I try to not get jealous of all of the things you got with him because it is all in the past. You had your time, and now I get the wedding. You got to dress up in high school, but I get to dress up for my wedding with him. He may have put a corsage on your wrist, but he will be putting the wedding ring on my finger.

Even When You Don't Have It In You

For the struggling college student at the start of a new semester.


The above picture represents a stage in my life that I thought I would never get through. I had just finished final exams and was terrified of the outcome of my last semester as a Junior. I had experienced so many mental breakdowns and anxiety attacks from a series of events and low places that I found myself in throughout the semester, so much that my mom had to stay with me during final exams. I needed encouragement, and I needed it bad.

Kind of like right now, and I'm sure that some of you might find yourself in the same place.

While the start of a new semester looks shiny and promising, there is always that point when reality begins to settle in, and you realize that responsibilities are resurfacing just as fast as they left at the onset of Christmas break.

You show up to the first day of classes, all of your professors throw a syllabus at you, as well as your final exam date, and you begin to feel your forehead break out in sweat. We've all been there, and that is precisely the place that I found myself at while sitting in my first ever 8 AM of my college career.

Not only do we attend classes, but nightly meetings as well, all while attempting to retain a social life and keep up with our mental health.

It's A LOT. I know it. I've been there.

There have been days when I wanted to simply throw in the towel, and quit school altogether.

I have been at the point when I couldn't find even a sliver of motivation to get me through the meetings, the extra credit seminars, work, or even to church.

The feeling of defeat is nothing new to me, but what I have learned is something that will forever be a constant even though my motivation level is not always.

The Lord doesn't love you because you do everything right, or you attend every meeting and aren't a second late... The Lord loves you because of you are His, and that will never change.

See, regardless of our level of perfection in a certain class or at a meeting, he is always constant, always.

Regardless of our inability to give ourselves creditor to take time to breathe, his loves you fully, with no prerequisites.

That is what had gotten me through the majority of my sleepless night when a responsibility or test kept me awake at night with anxious thoughts.

Regardless of our performance, or how good we look to the people of this Earth, our worth is found in God, and we must not let performance or standards of society fog up our sight of that.
