Bloopers and A College ‘Mood’

Yesterday, I lacked the time (and all motivation) to take blog photos, so I decided to dig into the archives and find some funny blooper pictures to post instead—it’s been a hot minute (as the kids say) since I last shared a blooper post! I love to do this every once and awhile to show some “realness” because trust me, the majority of the photos I take are not good. And given that students are extremely stressed this time of year with midterms/finals before spring break (depending on if you have a traditional semester system or a quarter system, like me), I figured, why not caption all of the blooper photos with college-related stressors? I got the idea from Meghan at butterflyempire.com. She always posts blooper photos on her Instagram stories and lets her followers come up with funny captions—such a good idea! Anyway, I hope you enjoy this post, especially if you’re a stressed out college student like me. Continue reading “Bloopers and A College ‘Mood’”

Staying Healthy in College: My Tips and Tricks

how to stay healthy in college, staying healthy, college living

I’m gonna get real with you all today (actually, I always try to be ‘real’ with you guys, as evidenced in my weird and awkward blog posts here, here, and here). Staying healthy in college is tough – very tough. You’re constantly surrounded by delicious temptations – pizza, ice cream, candy, oh my! – and you’re stuck with sub-par cafeteria food, which usually means turning to unhealthy snacks to satisfy your grumbling belly. Unlike high school, where a lot of us had some sort of scheduled after-school physical activity, college leaves you solely responsible to make time to exercise between your busy classes and stacks of extremely dry books to read. It takes a lot of self-discipline to get to the gym. Sure, maybe you lucked out and have a kitchen this year, so cooking your own meals is ideal. But realistically, do you have time to cook every night? Or the motivation? What about the money? ‘Cause healthy food ain’t cheap. I could go on, but can you see the dilemma of being healthy in college? Can you relate? Continue reading “Staying Healthy in College: My Tips and Tricks”

College Haikus to Spice Up Your Monday

Hey y’all! Coming at ya’ today at 12:30 in the morning…nervous laughter. Let’s just say, the weekend was not as productive as I had hoped. Anyone else? Today’s blog post is a compilation of relatable Haiku poems summing up my college experience at the moment. Whenever I use Haikus for a blog post, it’s a desperate last-minute attempt to entertain you because currently I’m completely uninspired and out of ideas (maybe it’s just the fact that I have to pry my eyelids open again every five minutes). I’m really selling this blog post, I know. But to be fair, the last time I published a blog post about rainy day Haikus, it was very popular, so I’m hoping for the best…? That’s called operant conditioning, folks. Woohoo for my psych studying. And now, to put an end to these rambles, the poems: Continue reading “College Haikus to Spice Up Your Monday”
