First Week Of School As Told By Lilo & Stitch

First Week Of School As Told By Lilo & Stitch

Childhood movie perfectly representing college life.


As the first week of school approaches, we will all sooner or later run into similar situations. You may think that you won't go through any issues at all, but you're wrong. Even seniors go through the same first week phase that freshmen go through. How you handle this first week of school is all up to you. Don't let this first week fool you though with syllabus day, introduction week, and with learning the basics of every subject. Things will get harder, college is one big leap ahead of high-school that's for sure. The first week of college is very stressful for most people and for others not so bad. In the end the first week of college will have everyone debating about their life careers. Here are some things you may run into on the first week of college.

1. Meeting New People

Meeting people is hard but trust me, everyone makes friends. Just make sure to be yourself, I promise you, no one will judge your for watching Gossip Girl everyday or putting cheese in your Ramen.

2. Professors during the first week of class

Professors will seem really evil or hateful and most of the time they are, but most of them aren't as bad as they seem.

3. Doing laundry for the first time

If you don't know how to do your laundry, don't worry, people will notice and maybe even chuckle at you, but never be afraid to ask for help. There are plenty of people in the dorms who are willing to help you.

4. Realizing you're on your own

It's rough going from seeing everyone every day to seeing no one at all, but don't worry, your family will visit you. If not there's always the weekends for them to come see you, and if you can't do either of those it's free to install Skype or Google Hangouts.

5. When your professor tells you that you don't need the book for class but you already bought it

Everyone will have that one teacher that pulls this mess on you, but don't worry, you'll find someone to rent your unneeded books.

6. The realization that high-school didn't prepare you for college

You will have plenty of professors ask you "Didn't you learn this in high school?", and our honest answer will be no. Most of the things I have learned in my classes I have never even thought about yet alone learned from my teachers.

7. "College will change you"

College will change you, without a doubt, no questions asked.

8. When you turn in your 10 page paper an hour before its due

Family & friends: "They won't assign any papers first week of school don't worry!"

Professors: "Hi class, I know today is our first day, but on Friday I will need from each one of you a 9-12 page paper about why you decided on taking my class."

9. Finally getting sleep

At the end of each day just make sure you get at least some rest for more stressful days to come, because I can promise you things only get harder from here on out.

10. Realizing its going to be a bumpy ride, but totally worth it

Don't worry, college is hard, there will be bumps here and there but you'll find a way to achieve everything you need done.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
