The 15 Sages Of A Typical Day For Students Everywhere

The 15 Sages Of A Typical Day For Students Everywhere

Whether you're in class or doing laundry, this applies to you.

After being a college student for the past few months, I have come to realize that not every day is the same. Different responsibilities and activities make themselves known, so you never know what your schedule for the week will be like.

However, I have discovered that many students like myself have days that follow a similar structure. Waking up in the morning and binge-watching Netflix at night are two common activities, and everyone manages to fit panicking about finals and mastering the art of procrastination in between. Here is the average college student's day in a nutshell.

1. Rise and Shine

"Do I REALLY need to go to class today?" - a thought that racks our brains every morning.

2. Breakfast

...if you wake up in time for it!

3. Morning classes

The mind is well rested (hopefully) and ready to learn.

4. Break time

See some friends, grab a snack, take a nap...the options are endless.

5. Remaining classes

Not as sharp as you were a few hours ago.

6. No more class! (aka freedom)

The GIF says it all.

7. Seeing your friends after class

It feels like ages since you last saw each other.

8. Remembering all the work/responsibilities you still have to do the rest of the day

Just because you aren't in a classroom doesn't mean the work for the day is done.

9. Then you have to decide whether or not to do laundry....

It sounds like a good idea but...

10. ...but none of the machines are available

Story. Of. My. Life.

11. Procrastinating on...well everything

College: the only place where it takes 5 hours to read a current event.

12. Thinking about finals are coming up


13. So you decide to procrastinate more and shower after a long day

The dorm building shower becomes a spa equivalent after a long day.

14. Getting into bed because you already know work is a lost cause

So cozy.

15. Knowing you have to sleep but watch Netflix instead

No regrets, though.

...and REPEAT!

It's been a long day.

22 New Things That I Want To Try Now That I'm 22

A bucket list for my 22nd year.


"I don't know about you but I'm feelin' 22," I have waited 6 long years to sing that and actually be 22! Now 22 doesn't seem like a big deal to people because you can't do anything that you couldn't do before and you're still super young. But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

A Thank you To all The Things That Didn't Work Out

Everything really does happen for a reason.


When something does not work out as planned, our immediate thoughts are overwhelming. I have sat up many nights, staring at the ceiling, wondering why things did not work out as planned. I know sometimes you feel as if the whole world is coming down on you. I know you are frustrated at the mystery of events that could take place.

Trust me, it will get better and work out in a way you never would've imagined.

When you wallow in self-pity after things not working out, you are only hindering your success. You know when everything will get better? It will get better when you start believing in yourself. It will get better when you start to love yourself for who you are and push yourself to your fullest potential.

Life has many different paths and obstacles that we, as human beings, are faced with every day.

When we do not have a choice on the outcome of particular situations, it is hard to see the positive side.

Take a minute to close your eyes and think about the last time something did not work out as planned. Were you optimistic and positive? If not, take this advice from me.

To my 6th grade relationship where I acted out the "Romeo and Juliet" scene for my first kiss, thank you. To the immature middle-school drama, thank you. To dance auditions, thank you. To falling in love with one specific college, thank you. To having a crazy freshman year experience, thank you.

Now, these are just a handful of events that did not go as planned for me personally. I can truthfully say, with all of these "losses," I gained so much more. Sometimes we do not even realize that the plans we are making for our lives may not be the best. The plans that are meant to work out always do.

So, to the girl that is crying for not making the cheer team, say thank you.

To the guy that is frustrated about his career path, say thank you.

To the child that is left out in a friend group, say thank you.

You will one day see the path that IS meant to work out after that one "planned" path did not. It is so important to understand that you are not alone. Every single human being on this earth has once thought of a plan, only to have it destructed by a new one. Without control, without a say, our life plan can change in a blink.

So, to all the things that did not work out, thank you.
