My Life as a Single College Girl as Told by Winnie The Pooh

This is My life as a single college girl, as told by winnie the pooh

Oh, honey.


With the release of the trailer for the new live action Winnie the Pooh movie, I began to rewatch a lot of Winnie the Pooh episodes and movies from my childhood.

Along with nostalgia, I realized that I might relate to Winnie the Pooh now, as a single college girl, than I did as a kid.

Me ready to eat a dinner for 4 all by myself

One thing you realize when you're single, is that it is hard to make food portions just for one person. I find myself making myself enough food, and filling my plate with enough food to feed a small family. it hasn't been great for a figure, but it's been great for my taste buds.

Me going to bed at 8pm because I can

When you live alone, for some reason, 8pm become prime sleeping time. Maybe it's because you no longer have roommates to stay up watching movies with, or maybe it's because your apartment is much quieter than campus will ever be. No matter the reason, it feels good to catch up on sleep every now and then.

Me trying to figure out what I'm gonna do with my life

My college career has gone by so fast. And here I am realizing I'm supposed to be thinking about (and planning) what I want to do with my life. Instead, I'm laying in bed watching Winnie the Pooh.

My friends and I prepared to fail an exam we know we didn't study for

We've all been there before, and we all know this is exactly the face you made when you open that test packet and can't even understand the first word of the first question. Welcome to college my friend.

Me working out for the first time in a year

This is an accurate representation of me walking out the shower, looking at myself, realizing i should probably start working out; then, proceeding to do a few crunches, a couple of squats, and calling it a day until next year.

Me running away from my problems

Accurate representation of me pretending everything is okay when I haven't signed up for classes, paid rent, or have even thought about school in the last two weeks. Hopefully, everything turns out okay in the end like it does for Winnie the Pooh.

Me waking up every weekend, surrounded by my mistakes

I wholeheartedly relate to Winnie the Pooh's appetite. Especially waking up on Saturday with a raging headache, surrounded by my clothes from the night before you know the first thing I'm doing is getting some breakfast.

Me when anyone gives me attention

In college, especially when you go to a large university, it is hard to form relationships with people. So whenever I see someone I know, or someone I vaguely know says hi to me, it honestly makes my day.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
