To The College Friends Who Make College Worth It

People always told me that college would be some of the best times of my life. I always thought they were a bunch of liars, because college has probably brought me the most stressful times in my life.

It’s the first time in my life I actually had to go through a full day of classes, make myself dinner, finish all my homework, and put myself to bed at a reasonable (never actually reasonable) hour all in one day. It took a while getting used to all this independence. However, when the stress wears off, I find myself surrounded by the people who actually prove to me that everyone was wrong. College itself may not be the best time of my life, but the people I do college with are.

As I look back on the semester, I specifically remember the little things. I never look back at my semester and think about that test I got an A on, or that paper I spent hours perfecting. I look back at the lip sync battles in my living room, and the game nights where competitiveness takes an all-new level, and the scary movie nights where we all piled on the couches with blankets pulled up to our noses.

They might be my biggest distractions, but I wouldn’t chose to put anything else over my homework. They make class a little bit better, dinner a little bit more fun to make, homework a little more easier to avoid, and sleep a little bit easier to put off for another hour. Everybody says home is where the heart is, and I believe my heart could be in two different places. My college friends are my home away from home, and my heart could not be anymore full.

While we look back on yet another semester of memories, I have God to thank for blessing me with these irreplaceable friendships that make leaving for break just a little bit harder.

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?
