11 Things I Won't Care About Once I Finish College

Sure I'll have bills and a job to go to everyday, but at least I won't have any papers to write.

2 more years stand between me and being finished with graduate school. 2 more years of schoolwork, tests, and group projects. I still have a good bit of schooling left, but I can still dream.

1. Homework

No more papers. No more busy work assignments.

2. Group projects

Why are these even a thing in college? Sure learning to "work together" is great when you are in high school, but in college it is just chaotic because everyone always seems to have conflicting schedules and living situations. This is something I certainly won't miss.

3. College Parking

This situation speaks for itself. I'd much rather walk 2 miles to class than drive around a parking lot for an hour only to get a ticket anyway.

4. The odd smell coming from my neighbor's apartment

Being in college, you never know what crazy neighbors you are going to get. From marijuana to fried chicken, the smells of college living are endless.

5. Allen 31

As an educational psychology major, you are certain to have one or all of you classes in this room. The worst is when you have classes in there for 3 hours in a row.

Unreliable thermostat, chalkboard, awkward desks, and paneling on the walls. Oh Allen 31.

6. Tests

I love learning, but taking tests is one of the most anxiety provoking parts of college. No more cramming or drilling yourself with notecards until the wee hours of the morning.

7. FAFSA

Filing for financial aid is the dreaded moment of the whole year. After college, FAFSA will be a distant nightmare.

8. Block meals and flex dollars

Nothing is more frustrating than getting to the end of a spring semester and have $100 worth of flex dollars left that you have to hurry and blow so your money doesn't disappear into thin air.

9. Cafeteria food in general.

Fried fish Friday may be great, but not enough for me to miss all of the "joys" of on-campus dining.

10. Registration

Registering for classes is probably the most anxiety provoking part of college. 200 students trying to register for creative writing but only 22 seats? How does that make sense?

And a lot of classes are only offered in the spring or fall semester. So if you miss the window for a class and it's your senior year, you are stuck taking an extra semester of classes.

11. Stating your name, major, and one fun fact about you on the first day of classes

I'm here to learn and get an A, Brenda, not hear how Johnny went to New York for the first time over the summer.
I can never think of a fact about me that is "fun" enough. And after you get towards the end of your college career, everyone in your classes has heard your fun fact 5 times.

College is full of exciting memories, firsts, and some of the best times of your life, but there are definitely pieces of college that won't be missed.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?
https://pixabay.com/photos/tiktok-social-media-app-tik-tok-5323007/

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

3002

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."

In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
