Why College is Actually Kindergarten

Nap time and snacks are still very important to me.

So many naps

I wasn't a nap person until I got to college and I probably hadn't napped since I was 5, but I rekindled my love for sleeping. Trying to balance school, work and a social life has taught me how to sleep on buses, power nap for 10 minutes and schedule at least 2 nap opportunities a day.

Playing outside

I'm the type of person that needs a certain amount of time outside a day. You can usually find me laying on campus lawns in between classes to soak up some vitamin D and thawing from relentless classroom air conditioning. Just like a kindergartener, I need my designated outside time. And when you just got out of a 3 hour lecture, a patch of grass can feel like this.

Trying to make friends

The first day of college orientation reminded me of how kids make friends - you like dogs?? I like dogs too!! I guess we're best friends now.

Arts and crafts

Glue sticks and markers left my life during middle school and high school, but now they're back with a vengeance. Making posters, dioramas and visual aids are here again and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I just signed up for a ceramics class for an art GE credit . . . wish me luck!

Missing my mom

When I started kindergarten I cried every day because I couldn't just stay home with my mom. I still feel the same but now I just cry on the inside. I hated not seeing my mom every day so I call and text her 24/7 when I'm at school.

Desperately wanting snacks

College has taught me I have no pride. I'll join any club, go to any meeting, and sell my soul to satan to get free food. Life was so much simpler in kindergarten when you knew snacks would be provided. Why did that ever stop?

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

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?
