Daily, I watch friends frantically try to finish an assignment right before it’s due. For me, I attempt to get work done ahead of time to save myself from the hassle and stress. Managing school work can be tough, but I save time and don’t have to stress! In high school, I was disorganized and got by without studying. I’d work on projects the day before they were due and always make good grades. College was a big adjustment, but I do a lot to make sure I stay on top of my work!
Community showers seem daunting and terrifying. (However, I live in an apartment now. Check out the tour here.) Remember that scene in Pitch Perfect where a girl rips open the shower curtain while someone else is in there showering? That’s literally my worst fear. While they can seem absolutely impossible, they don’t have to be awful if you remember a few important tricks. I’ve been using a community bathroom for almost a year now and it has become just a part of my normal routine.
Moving into my own college apartment was something I had planned for for so long. I spent the whole summer saving things on my Pinterest (follow me!) and ordering things online to fully decorate my apartment. And yes, I’ll do another post on apartment shopping and how & why I picked my college apartment!
College is a major change in life. We spend so much time preparing for it and worrying about it that we build up these ideas… college misconceptions. Some of these ideas end up being totally true (like you’ll meet life long friends!), but others are totally whack! I asked friends and classmates about the misconceptions they had about college, and compiled them into this list for you!
This post is sponsored by Jiffy Lube because they’re committed to helping drivers prepare for the road ahead so they can Leave Worry Behind® this back to school season. However, all opinions and ideas are 100% my own and I’m committed to only bringing y’all posts that I truly believe in. As a college student (like most of y’all), sponsored posts just give me the opportunity to benefit monetarily from my blog so I can keep creating it for you guys!
It’s back to school time, and I hope you guys are just as excited as I am. While last year only a handful of my friends had a car on campus, it’s becoming more and more common to take your car with you to college. However, with having a car comes lots of extra responsibilities. I’ve put together a list of tips for you to keep in mind. These are good for everyone, whether you’re new to having a car on campus or not!
College is coming up so soon, so I thought I’d take y’all on a little tour through my college backpack. If you’re an incoming freshman, hopefully this will give you an idea of what you might need, too! I sorted all the items I carry into different categories, and then at the end of this post you can download a free checklist to make sure you remember everything!
