Being a College Baby

Highschool movies lie.

The whole, gonna go to college in a dramatic entrance dressed like a celebrity and fit as a fiddle? Going to college clubs and accidentally meeting a whole group of friends that you end up spending the rest of your life with? Or even drinking coffee in the morning and eating a happy breakfast to start a long day of studying?

Bruh. Sometimes I don't have time for any of that. I live in Miami. You're a hero if you can do any of these.

1. And by Miami, as in, hour long traffic so I have to wake up twice as early for class without coffee (because coffee damages my digestive system. TMI?) 2. Sticky humid weather so I can't wear a nice dress unless I want stinky pits and frizzy hair that's too short to put in a complete tie-up. 3. And where drivers have to be complete warriors to weave through the streets to get to class and find a parking spot; I see a car accident here and there. Secondly, I go to college in a tiny place in Hialeah, which means the college is made up of 2 conjoined buildings and that's it. So, if I want a quiet place to study or focus on my work or even drink something and chill, I cant. We're packed together like sardines in a crisp clean silver can. Thirdly, it took me a whole semester (3 months) to find out where people with my same interests have been hiding this whole time.

Studying music, art, and theater. Where am I? Studying physical therapy with people whose definition of fun is opposite of mine, involving parties and drinking.

So, now that you heard the rant I've been bottling up for months now,(I'm sorry! I love you all and I'm not trying to scare you away!), I can actually explain what I did learn and what I hope to achieve in the future. I'm still gonna provide hope for the other college babies out there that are as scared and out-of-place as I am!

Time management is key.

College is exhausting.

I thought I could study for one whole day and then have free time for the next 3 days. That was probably the worst decision I'd ever done and there's always more work. So instead of losing sleep over it and producing excessive amounts of stress, it's best to sit down with relaxing music and actually devote a couple hours a day to work. In that way, you can breathe, think about your needs, and still have a good amount of work done.

Eat well.

Your body is just as important as your brain is, in college. I try to eat cereal or just one yogurt every morning before class and the second I'm out, I'm scampering for food from starvation. Plus, it's extremely hard to focus on a lecture if your tongue is salivating at the thought of a sandwich. So, hopefully with @allobaber's amazing cards, I can figure out the best protein-filled breakfast meals I can eat and still have time to weave through traffic.

Keep in regular contact with friends.

I thought if I finished this homework or finish studying for that test, I could grasp time to see my friends. Then, I cancel, because I have to see a math tutor and devote 4 hours in a library to virtual classes and volunteer hour-searching. Being alone every day starts plaguing your mind and draining you of what motivates you to do so well in college. Talking every day with at least one person helps take away 20% or more of stress. My boyfriend has to hear me vent for hours about how angry I am about some driver littering and how my teacher is teaching too fast, but you know what? It's pretty damn satisfying.

Keep your spirits up with hobbies. And remember why you picked your career.

I can't remember the last time I sat down and read a book! And I'm a bookworm!

If I don't have time to do what I love, what's the point of living?!

When's the last time I painted or wrote in my journal about my day or danced to awesome music in a game? College made me forget about thinking farther than movies and homework. I want to do better. Do something you want to do every so often, because if you dont, at some point, you're gonna look up and ask, "how the hell did I get here?"
So, thank you Vinglers for making your cards and inspiring others and keeping everyone on their feet with a smile. It's people like you that remind others how to pay attention to their life's positives, not their life's negatives. I'm sorry I've been too busy to be regularly on Vingle, but I love you guys, and I hope you enjoyed my long-awaited card! @danidee @TessStevens @alywoah @LAVONYORK @nicolejb @allobaber @shannonl5 @marshalledgar @lizzeh @BeannachtOraibh & many others ♡
To make your day a little sunnier, my pusheens would love to say hi! I love them!

You pushed through it though and you must be really satisfied with your best experiences and rewards from hard work :D I'm glad to have met all of you, cause it comforts me to know that I'm not the only one that tried to figure things out in college that weren't just about alcohol control (which I can't drink cause it affects my nervous system LOL my good luck) & romantic relationships

@nicolejb good idea! O: @danidee yeah xD it's easy tho, thankfully. and I'm getting a hang of wasting less time on it
Ughhhh, you're taking virtual classes? I was always so bad at those! Is it just me or do I feel like they demand WAY more time than a regular class would?!
@nicolejb very good point! xD yes, I finally have tactics to make friends! thanks !

Self-Care: Sleep Education and Routine
Hello fam! Are you getting quality sleep? When educating people about self-care I've learned many of them aren't getting enough sleep and they don't have a sleep routine. Sleep is another super important asset to self-care and a healthy life. This is the time for body to reset and heal itself. Benefits of Sleep One huge benefit of sleep is time for healing inside and out. However, there are other great benefits. Think of our cellphones. If we keep them always running and never shit them down the life span is cut short and or it begins to crash. Our bodies are the same. What begins to happen with lack of healthy sleep The cycles of sleep Sleep Routine What's your sleep routine? Don't have one? I got you covered. Your sleeping routine doesn't have to be complicated. If you find that you can't sleep when it's time. Then you really need one. Good quality sleep starts before you hit that bed. My Sleep Routine 1. Playing relaxing music while I tiddy my room. 2. Lite a candle while sipping on soothing tea and or have a healthy snack 3. Shower using calming scents 4. Listen to what I want, and or read a book, and or watch 2 YouTube videos of my choice 5. Skincare 6. Shut off ringer on phone 7. Set alarms 8. Play calming music for deep sleep at low volume 9. Place phone on charger Music for deep sleep I have a playlist for sleep. Below I have an example of music you may want to explore. Snacks Time: Foods that can help increase deep sleep There are foods that can naturally help you get good sleep. Below are some healthy quick recipes for snacks. HAPPY HEALTHY SLEEPING FAM!

What Has BTS Taught You
Hello fam! I can across this cool edit. These are not my own, but I wanted to share. @VeronicaArtino and I were having a conversation about " why we look up to BTS or what we have learned from them." These edits definitely sum up what I have learned from BTS. Honestly my key things are you are never too young to be wise. Love myself and loving myself is not selfish. Love those who support you and even your haters. You reap what you sow. If you plant seeds of success and water them with hard work and dedication you will get what you deserve. Focus on being the best version of myself, screw comparing myself to others. COMMENT BELOW WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED FROM BTS!
