Life of a College Kid

There are a few things I’ve realized that I’ve gotten pretty good at lately that most people characterize college kids by. If you knew me freshman year, almost all of these things were pretty much opposite about me. Oh how college will change you.

The art of writing papers in an hour before class My procrastination skills have finally won out over my annoying perfectionism.

Surviving on little to no food This isn’t even necessarily because I’m a poor college student- just a lazy one.

Being disorganized Typically extremely organized with a color-coded closet and the perfect school notebook, I am now the person rifling through papers for that one you just can’t find and stepping through piles of clothes and boots on the floor just to get to bed.

Getting ready in under 30 minutes Ask my parents or Kyle about this one and they will tell you this definitely wasn’t always so. Most days I can even get ready in 15 because I now know how to throw on clothes that may not match (and not care), wear minimal makeup and make my hair look fine without taking a shower.

Watching any movie, or t.v. show on the Internet without buying it Though I’m not one for illegally downloading things, I have learned all of the sketch websites that will allow you to watch pretty much anything you could want.

Caffeine Enough said.

Getting minimal sleep throughout the week, then sleeping until noon on the weekends College. What more can I say.

Mingling with different types of people Growing up in “Pleasantville” didn’t exactly provide much diversity, but Fayetteville (home to Bikes, Blues and BBQ, legalize marijuana protests and a plethora of international students) is a whole new ball game.

Procrastination I’ve learned so many more ways to procrastinate than I ever though possible. ..blogging, perhaps?

Fake cleaning This definitely isn’t something to be proud of (or maybe it is?), and is something I need to work on since I will be a wife in less than a year, but I could make our apartment look “super clean” in 30 minutes by not really doing any cleaning at all.

    Mille, I also have. I no longer swim (nor do I care for long sweaty workouts), I drink, I’m married, I’m much more clean and organized. I study much more than I used to. I learned how to cook and now that I don’t have morning practices I take the time to do my hair and make-up. 🙂

    I think may have “inherited” the cleaning habits from me!
