21 Things You’ll Never Do Again After Graduating College
I found this article a while back but with recent graduation this seems more relevent than ever. Not to say that your college years are the best years of your life for there is so much mroe to come but here is a list of things you may never do again in your adult years. Enjoy!
1. Nap during the day. What a luxury! But really, don’t take your naps for granted, current college kids. There’s only so much coffee you can drink during the work day.
2. Enjoy cheap drink specials. I don’t know about you, but there was a bar by my school that served PENNY LIQUOR PITCHERS. I’m lucky if I can get a beer for $5 now. Sigh, miss you, cheap drinks.
3. Go to the gym whenever you want. When you have a 9-5 job, you either go to the gym SUPER early in the morning or after work. Good luck getting a machine after 6 p.m.
4. Pull an all-nighter. Hey, it’s 10 p.m. and I’m going to bed. G’night!
5. Spring/summer break. The beach and poor life decisions sound pretty good compared with sitting at a computer all day.
6. Sit in the student section at football games. At least when you’re an alum, you can sit down.
7. Meal plans. Remember that time your parents paid for your food? And the conveyor belt that magically cleaned all your dishes? Oh, the good ol’ days.
8. Sport college gear on a regular basis. Stupid business casual rules.
9. Wear sweatpants to class. I don’t care how bad it looks, it was comfy.
10. Dayglow. At least I HOPE you don’t do this after college…
11. Go to themed parties. So. Many. Costumes. ABC, toga, CEOs and business hoes… The list goes on.
12. Watch daytime TV. At least there’s YouTube?
13. Study abroad. Travel a country with a bunch of friends for a cheap(er) price. You also get to take really classy pictures with other students.
14. Receive care packages. Unless your mom is really nice.
15. Get student discounts. A discount’s a discount.
16. Play hooky. Oh, are you hungover? Feel free to stay home, but that will cost you a sick day.
17. Live so close to your friends. Getting together with your friends was just so much easier in college.
18. Make regular late-night runs to Taco Bell. The best drunk food, any night.
19. Have an abundance of free time. :(
20. Ignore student loans. Loans were great when you didn’t have to pay them back, but that grace period will end eventually, and it is terrible.
21. Meet people easily. This is a depressing realization once you move on to the real world. Sure, you meet people at your job and such, but making new friends just isn’t how it used to be.

There's more to being fit and in shape than excersive alone. Of course diet and life style choices affect your overall health but here are some great tips to follow if you are one of many searching for the solution to stubborn belly fat and excess weight.
1. Cardio- Try to incorporate at least 30 minutes a day of non-stop heart pumping exercizes to keep your heart happy and healthy. You don't have to stick to treadmills or outdoor trails, playing your favorite sport can help reach your daily cardio goals.
2. Carbs- Usually when you hear the word carb you associate it with bad awful things that you should cut out of your diet. But in reality carbs are essential for energy. You should try to eat the bulk of your carbs early in the day and avoid bad carbs such as french fries.
3. Fats- Again fats are necessary (in small quantities) for a healthy body. You should stick to unsaturated fats such as nuts, sardines, and cottage cheese to provide your body with what it naturally craves. Should I even have to tell you to cut jelly donuts out of your diet?
4. Switch up your routine- You have probably tried sticking to a fitness routine but found yourself bored after just one week. This is normal because even your muscles get tired of doing the same excersizes each day. Try to do different workout to target individual muscles instead of just running each day.
5. Consistency- Like most other things in life, it is important to be consistent. Don't give up during the first, it will get easier and remember you are giving up old habbits and adapting a new lifestyle. Good Luck!
Whether your rommates are long-time friends or strangers, adjusting to living with other people can be difficult at times as cleaning habbits, sleeping patterns, and other factors come into play. Not to worry though almost all roommate issues are temporary can be fixed with simple communication. Here are some common roommate issues.
1. Passive-Aggressive Notes: We've all seen the dreaded sticky notes plastered on the trash can, thermostat, and even canned food items asking a favor or demanding an action from someone. The problem with leaving notes is it leads to poor communication and unclear expectations of the home. It is best to directly address an issue rather than leaving a note.
2. Trash or Treasure: While some of us may be borderline hoarders and others OCD about cleaning and organizing it is important to understand that not everyone is the same as us. We all have our own version of clean and we may never agree completely with each other's standards but a good rule of thumb is if you make a mess, pick it up. Oh and about taking out the trash and doing dishing... take turns!
3. Over-partier: College is all about living in the moment and trying new things but a 300 person party on a Tuesday night might be a bit of a stretch in terms of what is acceptable. Try limiting your parties to once or twice a month and if possible let everyone in your apartment (including your downstairs neighbors) know about the event. This should help to eliminate any conflicts.
4. What's yours is mine: To avoid any sharing issues it is best to set rules for what the apartment will share within the first week of moving in. Things such as detergent, food, and cleaning supplies are often shared equally with roommates but you may decide that you would rather buy your own so make that clear to your roommates!
Hopefully this has exposed any roommate issues you might be having and will help to prevent any problems in the future!
