The 5 People You're Going To Meet In College

You'd be surprised at how almost everyone on this list is at your university right now!


You've made it into college/University, congrats! You've officially entered a new world of adventures and possibilities! As you're attending your university or college, the first thing you'll want to do, other than unpacking your bags, is making friends with any and every person that crosses your path. Well, while you're out there fishing for some new people to make friends with, here are a few kinds you might reel in.

1.The School Celebrity

This guy or girl is pretty part of the "It" Crowd at your school. They are heavily involved in any and if not all school clubs and they are probably in a leadership role, if not, the president for all of them. Essentially, these guys have become the face of the school and have the entire campus following them on all social platforms. They are extremely outgoing individuals, who, at the end of the day will graduate and become extremely successful.

2.The Sheltered Kids

These are the ones who have most likely come from a small town in the middle of nowhere and have never broken the rules. I'm talking have never missed a curfew, and who thinks shots only come from the doctor's office. Once the semester starts rolling on, typically they finally try something new and go on a high of exploring the new world college has so graciously provided for them.

3. The Greeks

These guys are really hard to miss on campus. Most of the time you'll see one girl handing out flyers, a guy in his pastel-colored button down and boat shoes or even a group of them walking around, typically if not always decorated in their sorority/fraternity letters. The very much bro community of your school, though sometimes, you'll come to find there are some Greeks that don't fall into the stigma.

4. The Overachievers

Don't get it twisted, it's great that they are working super hard during each semester, you'll never not hear about it. These people will always let you know how many classes, clubs, charities, jobs, and events they have lined up for them this week. They juggle immense amounts of work every day and are practically a living breathing coffee-fueled machine. No matter how crazy your life may seem, you'll never out "busy" them.

5. The Slackers

Unlike the overachievers who seemingly have zero time to do anything that doesn't involve what they are already doing. The slackers are one of the most puzzling people you'll come across on campus. Found mostly in their dorms, out lounging on campus grounds, and occasionally sleeping in the library. These people will never set foot in class after their first week, occasionally they will pop into class for midterms and finals but other than that, they are ghosts. Yet infuriatingly they always seem to get a higher grade than you for hardly being present.

Regardless of who you come across during your years at university, remember to not judge a book by its cover. At the end of the day, you'll make friends with whoever comes your way, and as long as they make you happy, if they are a greek or the sheltered kid, it shouldn't matter.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!
