Tips For Your First Week At College

Tips For Your First Week At College
  1. You may think you packed too much, but really you probably didn’t pack enough. Says the girl who forgot half of her clothes back home and has half a closet left of space.
  2. Meeting people isn’t very hard at all. Everyone is in the same boat you are and they all just want to make friends like you!
  3. Freshman 15 is no joke, and I already feel it coming after one day. Shoutout to Rob’s at the University of Akron. Really appreciate you adding to my BMI. (Body Mass Index)
  4. Don’t go to a crazy party the first few days. It’ll get busted and it’s better to just stay low-key and test the waters for a few days.
  5. Enjoy your time with your family when they move you in! Once they leave, you will feel so lost.
  6. Go to as many events as you can! Within the first few nights I went to a sorority gathering, a soccer game, event fair, and a festival in downtown Akron. Through those events, I was able to make connections and friends.
  7. Join clubs early on! It’s easiest to make friends that way, especially friends who have similar interests as you.
  8. Exploring campus is a must! It’s nice to feel familiar with your new home.
  9. Meet people on your floor. Living in a dorm is like living in a huge apartment with all of your closest friends. It’s so much fun being able to walk down the hall and have a movie night with new friends, order pizza to eat while chatting, and getting to know new people everyday.
  10. Enjoy it! It all flies by and before you know it you will be starting classes!

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
