5 Things You'll Miss About Your College Buddies

Booze, buddies, classes and chaos, college is the perfect place to develop life-long friendships. It's a time that throws people together in a way that can't be found afterword. College will test everything, and in the times where you have nowhere to turn, your friends are there.
Here are 5 things you'll miss about your college buddies.

1. How close they are to you

On a traditional college campus your friends are all within walking distance. If you bomb an exam, feel shitty about your day or break up with someone, they're only a few steps or blocks away. After school, you'll all separate and this can be hard.
That kind of convenience doesn't happen anywhere else, unless you're living in a hippie commune or something...

2. How accepting they are

Your college friends see everything, even the most unpleasant and embarrassing moments can be rewarding to them. If you live with your college friends, all bets are off. They'll be there when you're at your Kate Moss worst, and your Beyonce best.

3. How they always cheer you up

When you're out on your own, you have to make yourself happy, but in college your friends can do that for you. Late night rounds of Mario Kart and heart to heart talks on porches will define your best moments with them. Nowhere on earth will it ever be better to get out your drunken feelings, than it is with your college friends.

4. Your "morning after" conversations

My favorite part about living with my best friends in college was collecting in the living room and discussing the previous night's events. Who talked to who? Who was an asshole? Shit I did that?
You'll laugh really hard at yourself, and no matter what happened, they'll always be there to help you put the pieces back together.

5. How they understand you more than anyone else

Since you're all growing together, fucking up together and figuring things out, you'll connect with them on a deeper level than others. They are the ones who wait for you outside of bars, and walk you home late at night. Your college friends are hungover in class with you, they know your darkest secrets.
In some cases they save your life.
So if you're still in school, cherish these moments, because even in the midst of the wild and wacky college world, they'll always keep you steady, and that's what I miss the most.

Agreed @brownalb! :D My best friends are the ones I laugh the hardest with XD Sometimes I feel like if anyone else heard us talking to each other, they'd think we're crazy people...
The best part of buddies are the inside jokes and the nicknames you create 😄
I really liked this card btw @TessStevens! :)
@allischaaff yes the inside jokes nobody will ever understand but you guys. It's the best thing about best friends

11 Struggles Of Ridiculously Creative People
Honestly, I'm not disorganized...I just have a lot of ideas. 1. People are always asking you "what do you do?" Creative people do a lot of things. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what you do, but you're good at whatever that is right? 2. You've got a lot of different interests. You like music and art, fashion, writing and movies. You play guitar and you draw. You like a lot of different kinds of websites and you work on a lot of different things. There's nothing wrong with that. People may criticize you for your divided focus, but you view it as a gift. 3. People are always concerned about your wellbeing. You tend to get stressed pretty easily, probably because you're doing a lot of things at once. You can't help it, you love to work and you love to let your creativity flow. Probably because you're being rewarded for just being yourself. 4. You are really eccentric, because most creatives are. It's lame to be weird as a kid, but totally cool to be weird as an adult. If you're going to be crazy, you better get paid for it. Being creative means that you're automatically a secret weapon. You come in when there's no other recourse. 5. You have an insatiable need to create, and sometimes it makes you crazy. You wake up in the middle of the night sometimes and you end up writing something profound in your notebook, or drawing a beautiful masterpiece. There is something inside of you that makes it hard to sleep or take off from work. You have to be doing something all the time, and alhough that leads to stress and will ultimately be rewarded. Because everyone loves a good worker, and people like it even more if that work is innovative. 6. When you get blocked up, it can totally cripple you. Your creativity is the thing that keeps you going. When you hit a road block, and the ideas stop flowing it can seem like you have nothing. But sure enough, when you put pen to paper to draw, write, paint or create, you know that something will come out. Because it has to. 7. Your creativity isn't a's your life. It offends you when people don't value it as an asset. Sure, your'e not like everybody else, but that's a really good thing. Creativity is something that not everyone can possess. It's a natural ability and when people tell you that you can't use it, or that it's not valuable, they're wrong. 8. You constantly worry about missing opportunities, and not moving quickly enough. Because your brain is always firing on all cylinders it's easy to become anxious. When those blocks happen, things can get trapped and ideas start to falter. It seems like you're always creating something new, and when that doesn't happen...well, it might seem like the end of your world. 9. You're always fighting with yourself about art and commerce. What can make you the most money doesn't necessarily yield the most artistic results. There's a constant struggle in your head based on a key struggle that has been happening for centuries. It's a fundamental thing. You want to be creative, and make art. And people want to sell your creativity for profit. You have to find the good in what you're doing. 10. You have a serious fear of becoming a "starving artist". You don't want to prove all of your haters right. People in creative fields, or creatives in non-creative fields are always pitted against those who go the more "traditional" route. It's something you'll have to deal with. Creatives are automatically viewed as the underdog, simply because people tend to misunderstand what you're doing. 11. No matter what holds you back, you find a way to get past it. Because you're creative, and nothing can stop you. You're constantly inventing new ways of doing things, and you won't stop until you change the world.
7 Quotes That Wont Make You Feel That Bad About Failure.
Life in your twenties is pretty much all failure. Actually, failure happens a lot more in life then success; thats why success always tastes so sweet. But for some reason failure seems to be everyones worse fear. That failure somehow means failing at life, failing completely. But that isn't true. Failing is a part of life! Failure is what MAKES success stories! Don't believe me, check out these amazing quotes that truly show its failure is what makes life interesting. I know this might sound a little cliche but if you stop trying because you are afraid to fail than you aren't really living at all. Life isn't meant to be lived in fear and mistakes happen. Embrace them. Its impossible not to learn from failure, even if what you learn is how to NOT do something. That just means you'll know better for next time. What I love about this quote is that even if you do fail at reaching your goal, your attempt has gotten you that much closer so why the hell should you stop now? We are all afraid of being copies of a copy of a copy. We strive to stand out, to create a legacy; yet fear of failure will only lead to a copy of a copy. Nothing original was ever created from someone else's success, but from constant trail and error. I LOVE THIS QUOTE. To often do we let failure linger with us like a pesky neighbor we just can't shake. We must remember that failure is not a person and can, in fact, remain in the yesterday. Life isn't about being perfect, its about being strong, and courageous, and kind, and remarkable. Those things don't come easy and failure only makes those attributes on a person that much stronger. And my all time favorite quote from Charlie Chaplin. Failure is an inevitable; it is how you handle your failings that will define your life. Make sure you can joke about yourself. Its the only way to make it though with a smile.
