Tips For College Freshman From A Senior

And NEVER Put down your drink

Tips For College Freshman From A Senior

1. Go eat at the dinning hall

The food isn't always the best and yes sometimes the line is hella hella long, but go. I have made so many friends from standing in line and complaining with random people about how bad the food is.

2. Plan out your week

There is nothing worse than realizing your paper that you though was due next Thursday is actually due this Thursday. Make a schedule around you classes of when and what homework you are going to do. This is the one thing that will keep you on task.

3. Go out with people you trust

Never go out alone. If you are going to a party or to the bar, go with a group. Never walk home alone. Never leave anyone. Go everywhere together. You are safer in numbers. And NEVER Put down your drink

4. Call your mom

When I first got to college, I hated calling my parents. I did it once a week because I had to, but now I can't go a day without calling home. I FaceTime my mom or dad at least once a day, sometimes more (if I'm bored). I have learned to appreciate my parents more and more as the years went on. You won't be seen as a little kid if you call home or miss your parents.

5. Go to class

Skipping class to sleep in or hang out with friends can be fun, but class is actually important. You're lucky enough to pick you own class in college. Pick ones that fascinate you and seem interesting. The second you skip one class you will want to skip them all. (But like if you need a mental health day, take it).

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
