Why The First Month of College Isn't Always Easy For an Over-involved Student

You've packed up the car, ready for a new semester; full schedule that seems to be okay in the class aspect and jam packed with clubs and organizations. You come to school, move in and start the year with a fresh mind, ready to go...only to realize the first month isn't all you expected. No, it's not quite you pictured.

It seems as though every club and organization wants to meet on the same week, same day and time right? Meeting after meeting it seems. From class to meetings, you can't catch a break.

Syllabus week is great, until classes go full force... with every club going full force too. Everyone wants to get organized. Professors, E-board members (yes, that includes yourself), staff and everyone under the sun. The first month is more of an adjustment period than you think.

Trying to get ahead in class work isn't really possible when you can't even keep track of your daily schedule at times. Maybe it's the classes that might not have been the best choice or the times you picked.

How do you get a social life you may ask? You have to make the time, and sacrifice putting off work until last minute or staying up until 2:00 AM just to get ahead, so you can go out on the weekends.

I wish it was October or November. Why? Yes, sweater weather, but also because things start to settle down and become more collective, and everyone, including yourself, has figured out how the semester and or year will go down.

Would I be less involved? No, because I love every club and organization I am in, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Busy schedule? Bring it on.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
