20 Situations Every College Student Experiences, As Told By Totally-Relatable Gossip Girl Memes

Gossip Girl pretty much describes every aspect of college life.

Hey Upper East Siders, we all know college has its ups and downs and we have a love/hate relationship with it. From running to make it to your early morning lecture to dancing the night away at some random frat party you just can’t remember the name of, college life is unlike any other.

We are working so hard to get that degree and we won’t let anything stop us along the way — unless it’s snowing and we can’t be bothered to walk to our 8:00 A.M. or we are too hungover from our best friend’s 21st birthday party the night before.

Gossip Girl is a TV series that highlights the highs and lows of wealthy (and not so wealthy) New York teenagers. They battle it out on the MET steps and in the halls of their high school over love, friendships, and money. If you haven’t seen Gossip Girl yet, I highly recommend you pick a week and binge the entire series. You’ll find yourself gravitating towards Chuck Bass or Nate Archibald — but you can’t have both.

What these characters don’t know is that some of their famous one-liners perfectly sum up the life of a college student.

Who understands the struggle of college life more than Blair Waldorf or even Dan Humphrey? Here is a list of the best relatable Gossip Girl memes that perfectly sum up your college experience — from the timid freshman to the ready-to-graduate super senior.

xoxo, Gossip Girl.

1. When you rush to get to your 8:00A.M. class, only to find out its been canceled.

The worst.

2. When you notice the boy you hooked up with from Tinder sits in front of you in Econ.

Blair knows what it’s like to run in to the exes you wish you’d never see again.

3. The moment when your college advisor tells you that you can graduate on time.

Can you believe college is almost over? You should be proud of yourself. Maybe.

4. When your professor is having a rough day and assigns a pop quiz.

You professor definitely wants you to be unhappy.

5. When someone asks you what it’s like being in your sorority.

Wouldn’t you like to know? 

6. When you take control of the group project because nobody is doing it right.

When you want something done …

15 Heartbreaking Lana Del Rey Lyrics About The One Who Got Away

Lana knows all about not being able to move on.

Everyone has that one person they just can’t seem to get over. Maybe you have accepted that you can’t have a relationship with this person, but the feelings are still there — or maybe you keep going back to them hoping things might improve.

There’s something about going through a continuous cycle of heartache with the same person and feeling unable to get over someone that just makes you feel so powerless and out of control.

It’s almost as if this person has you under their spell and there’s no way to break it.

Often times, the one who got away is not always the best to you, yet you choose to look past it because you are so blinded by love.

For me, I’ve given guys multiple chances because I felt so strongly about them and could see their potential, but there were so many character flaws that I waited for them to fix, only to find them incapable of doing so. Although it was hard, I had to do what was best for me and let these people go. You would think this would be easy to do, especially if they are heavily flawed, but it’s hard to let someone go who you still care about deeply.

If you are anything like me when it comes to heartbreak and lost love, you likely take every sad love song you hear and imagine that song as if it were written about your life. You find common ground between the protagonists in these songs and wonder how a songwriter can perfectly describe exactly how you are feeling, down to the smallest detail. For me, that songwriter is Lana Del Rey.

Known for her unique Hollywood sad-core style music, her ability to write song lyrics in a way that captures my exact feelings, when I am unable to fully articulate them myself, is exactly what I need when I’m feeling down. She’s able to put my feelings into a much more beautifully poetic piece than I ever could. Lana Del Rey’s music is especially perfect for me when I get upset over a guy and just want to drown in my sorrows or get hit in the feelings.

Although heartbreak sucks, there is some solace in knowing that you are not alone. If even Lana Del Rey has gone through things …

shayarisms4lovers June18 222 - 20 Powerful Quotes From Celebrities About Body Shaming, Self Image & Learning To Love Your Body — As Is

20 Powerful Quotes From Celebrities About Body Shaming, Self Image & Learning To Love Your Body — As Is

“You’re amazing, just the way you are.” -Bruno Mars

Body-shaming is a horrible reality that everyone faces over and over again in their lives. But what exactly is body-shaming?

According to Healthline, body-shaming “involves criticizing and harassing overweight people about their weight or eating habits to make them feel ashamed of themselves,” with the intent to “motivate people to eat less, exercise more, and lose weight.”

Does this criticism affect a person’s self-esteem? Well, according to Kris Gunnars, a writer for Healthline agrees that fat-shaming makes things worse.

He states, “Some believe that making overweight people feel ashamed of their weight or eating habits may motivate them to get healthier. However, scientific evidence confirms that nothing could be further from the truth.”

It’s so true. People take the wrong approach in trying to approach the topic of your weight. Family members, doctors, and complete strangers make it the hardest and they can cut you down in a split second.

Body-shaming can cause a decrease in motivation, depression, eating disorders, reduced self-esteem, stress, weight gain, mental problems, increased risk of suicide, increased cortisol (a stress hormone) levels, and it can increase your risk for certain chronic diseases.

As someone who is overweight, there is not a day that goes by that I am not reminded that I need to stop eating this, or I need to exercise, or I need to lose weight, or I need to make myself look pretty. It really does take a toll on my mental health and self-esteem. Some days I don’t want to eat because all these negative thoughts are swirling around and then there are times I feel guilty for eating something.

It’s important for me to remember that I have to eat, but body-shaming from others and myself since I was born has made me so self-conscious that it can make just the simple matter of eating a chore and something that I feel so bad about.

But, lately, I have realized that I have to love myself for who I am and what I look like. I shouldn’t be ashamed of who I am or let negativity manifest.

If you are going through these same things, remember you are not alone.

Everyone goes through these body-shaming situations, even celebrities, but what can make you stand out is if you don’t let what other people say or the devil sitting on your shoulder …

15 Funny Quotes About College To Help You Get Through The Next Semester

Laughter can go a long way.

The time of the year has come once again for college students to go back to their dorms and/or apartments and begin yet another year. Then of course, there are those of you that are just starting your higher education, in which case I’m sure you have a bunch of different feelings going on inside you.

Whether you’re new or not, some of you may feel nervous or excited, happy to be leaving home or missing your family as soon as you get there. Believe when I say I know how you feel. I probably experienced every emotion you can while I was in college. It can be really fun and at other times really hard.

As you kick off another year of college life, I want you to remember a few things. Firstly, make the most of everything. Join clubs, try new things and be adventurous. Don’t let opportunities slip by while you lay on your bed staring at your phone. If you see something you think you might want to do, do it! This kind of advice really works for just life in general, but nowhere else will you find the abundance of opportunities that a college or university can provide, so take advantage of it!

Secondly, remember it’s okay to have fun. Contrary to the belief of a few of my friends, you don’t have study for hours and hours on end. In fact, studies have shown that studying for too long can actually be bad for your health. So don’t keep yourself locked up in the library until 3 a.m. and take breaks when you think you need to!

My last piece of advice is to remember that this is only a part of your life. When things are good, enjoy it, but when it’s not so good, remember what you’re working toward and how it’ll pay off in the long run. I know it can be tough, but reminding yourself of the future you’re going to give yourself can provide a surprising amount of motivation.

The year can be long, and sometimes you just need a good laugh. So keep my advice in mind and read these others’ thoughts and funny quotes about college life to get you through the next semester in one piece.

1. It’s a vicious cycle.

10 Bible Verses About Suicide That Prove You’re Not Alone

bible suicide scripture quote - 10 Bible Verses About Suicide That Prove You're Not Alone

Don’t give up hope. You’re here for a reason.

Suicide awareness has grown since 13 Reasons Why.

Then when Anthony Boudain and Kate Spade claimed their own lives in 2018, the topic became more openly discussed on social media to promote awareness and to show support for individuals suffering from depression.

The numbers prove that more people feel hopeless than ever before.

World stress factors, social media, and an inability to escape life due to the world’s interconnection can make it seem like a 21st-century problem.

But, did you know that the Bible also talks about suicide, starting from the beginning of the Bible via the Book of Genesis?

The first couple in the Bible gave birth to two brothers: Cain and Abel.

Able was murdered out of jealousy by his brother. As a result, Cain was sent out from his family and his biggest fear was that others would try to do to him what he had done to his brother.

This is the first conversation where desperate fear could indicate that a person struggled with thoughts of suicide.

Instead, God told Cain that he would mark him in such a way that anyone who harmed him would also be harmed as well.

Instead of judging Cain for his emotional angst, he was giving support, a lifeline, to encourage him to face another day.

There are other stories in the Bible about suicidal thoughts and attempts. King David contemplated suicide when his son was found dead.

In the New Testament, Judas hung himself out of guilt for leading Christ to his captors for money.

King Saul killed himself after a long period of mental illness. King David’s advisor, Ahithophel, also claimed his own life.

When Ahithophel saw that his advice had not been followed, he saddled his donkey and set out for his house in his hometown. He put his house in order and then hanged himself. So he died and was buried in his father’s tomb. Samuel 17:23, (WEB)

Samson’s death could be ruled a suicide or a martyr act.

There are many places where scriptures show how people felt sad and hopeless.

As a result, they gave in to their overwhelming sorrow and took their own life.

There are many factors that come into a person’s decision on why they should do this, but let’s take a look at one of them, lack of meaning.

15 Celebrity Quotes About Anxiety And Depression

You are not alone.

Did you know that anxiety is one of the most common mental illnesses in the United States? According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, 40 million people 18 and older are affected every year, which is roughly 18.1% of the population, but only around 37% of people who suffer from anxiety seek treatment.

So what is anxiety?

According to Healthline, anxiety is a response your body does naturally when you are stressed. Anxiety can come with being scared or apprehensive. When normal nervousness becomes something more extreme, something that you are feeling constantly, then you may have something you need to discuss with your doctor.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help because there are people out there who specifically are trained to help you. There is nothing you should be embarrassed about.

Yes, it is very hard sometimes to cope with your anxiety. Some days you just want to stay in bed and hide or have a meltdown. It can be really hard to do everyday things.

I know from experience that it is not easy to have anxiety, but it’s something controllable and there are options to help decrease or anxiety. When you have an anxiety attack, you may not even realize what’s going on, but it’s not something you are solely experiencing.

Everyone suffers from anxiety at some point in their lives, but it’s important to not let it stop you from doing things you want to do.

It’s important to work through your anxiety, I know, easier said than done, but you have to work through it so that you can get where you want to go in life. Seeking some treatment and therapy will help you calm down while you face some scary situations.

What are the symptoms of anxiety?

There are many symptoms of anxiety, where everyone can experience different feelings. According to Healthline, some of the most common symptoms of anxiety are increased heart rate, restlessness, trouble concentrating, rapid breathing, and difficulty falling asleep. Your symptoms can be completely different than someone else’s and can be very scary when you feel these symptoms. It almost feels like you feel anxiety about having anxiety.

Here are some celebrity quotes about anxiety and recognizing and dealing with depression and other mental health issues that show that even famous celebrities go through the same thing you do. No one

shayarisms4lovers June18 212 - 20 Tell-It-Like-It-Is Quotes To Send To Your Self-Absorbed Friend (To Set Them Straight!)

20 Tell-It-Like-It-Is Quotes To Send To Your Self-Absorbed Friend (To Set Them Straight!)

It’s time for a reality check.

Have you ever been called a narcissist? You know… those people that are just full of themselves and they only seem to care about, well, them? Weirdly enough, it seems like whenever you call someone out who’s self absorbed like that, they never agree with you either. Maybe they know it’s a flaw and just don’t want to admit it.

The thing about narcissism is that it’s actually not just some personality quirk. Narcissistic personality disorder is actually classified by the Mayo Clinic as a real personality disorder, meaning that guy you know that always talks about himself, if properly diagnosed, literally can’t help himself.

But even with this being the case, and even if your friend isn’t diagnosed as a full-blown narcissist, it can still get pretty annoying hearing someone ramble on about themselves all the time. It’s even worse when that person seems to think you’re friends, even when that friendship seems like a one-sided one.

Whether you’re actually friends or not is somewhat a moot point, because he or she is around you constantly anyway. All you really want is some peace and quiet so you can get your work done, but they won’t stop bragging about themselves and what “great” things they’ve done recently. So is there a good way to deal with that, aside from yelling at them to go away?

To be honest, despite how full of it a self-absorbed and self-obsessed person can be, you have to remember that if someone’s a narcissist, they’re prone to poor reactions to things such as criticism.

Narcissists can be more emotional and insecure too. Remember that beneath that overly-pompous attitude is still an every day person with every day feelings like you and me.

However, if you feel the need to really call them out on their behavior, make sure to do it in a way that’ll get through without hurting them — especially if they think of you as a friend and you even feel the same. Even though they talk a lot about themselves, they still trust you enough to talk to you about more personal matters, so you should respect that when trying to help make their personality more bearable.

So if you want to help your friend realize how self-obsessed their being right now, but the right words just won’t come, here are some quotes …

shayarisms4lovers June18 59 - 50 Love Quotes To Send To Your Boyfriend To Make Him Feel Special

50 Love Quotes To Send To Your Boyfriend To Make Him Feel Special

Boyfriends like the sappy stuff too, believe it or not.

What do you think of when you hear the word ‘boyfriend?’ Is it just a concept to you, or maybe it’s a person you know? It could even be your own boyfriend. You get to have an individual all to yourself that’s special to you alone.

If you’re one of the lucky few that are in a relationship, then this one’s for you.

I believe that no matter the relationship dynamic, roles and responsibilities should be divided equally. It shouldn’t be just the boyfriend paying for everything and it shouldn’t be just the girlfriend initiating physical contact. It’s an effort that requires both sides to pull their weight. An unbalanced relationship is doomed to fail.

Being the guy that I am, I obviously am not qualified to speak from the girlfriend’s perspective. But I can say what a boyfriend should be.

He should be someone who’s kind when you need him to be, one who’s willing to do the things you want to do and he should be someone that cherishes you and the time you spend together. That might sound a little storybook, but that’s the way I think it should be.

But even if your relationship isn’t exactly like that, there’s one component that needs to be there that no one can deny: love. Without love, the whole thing’s just going to feel shallow and empty. But, I think sometimes even when you know you need love, it kind of gets pushed to the side. It’s not like that’s done intentionally of course. Life happens and as they say, the spark can fade.

Sometimes guys need a little reminding about how a relationship should be and the effort that they should be putting in. And even if they don’t, adding in more romance never hurt anyone. So whether you’re looking for a jumpstart or just another, romantic way to tell your boyfriend how much you love him, here are the best love quotes for boyfriends (and husbands) that say “I love you” in 50 different ways.

1. How does he make your heart race?

“The real lover is the man who can thrill you just by touching your head or smiling into your eyes – or just by staring into space.” –Marilyn Monroe

2. He’s a part of you through love.

“Love is a portion of the soul

25 Confident Quotes That Prove It’s Actually Good To Be Selfish Sometimes

Don’t be afraid to put yourself first.

It’s okay to selfish sometimes.

Putting yourself first is key to living a fulfilled and happy life. There is nothing better than canceling all your nights plans, lighting a candle, pigging out, and watching romantic comedies all night long.

Putting yourself first gives you the confidence you need to succeed in life – telling yourself that you are worth more than what you see in the mirror is powerful. Telling yourself every day that you are kind, smart, beautiful, and talented will give you the confidence you need to say no to things and people that drain you, and yes to the opportunities that make your stronger.

The trait “selfish” always has a bad connotation surrounding it. But, you should allow yourself to be selfish when it comes to what you want and how you plan to get it. This doesn’t mean you should knock down others to get to the top, but putting your needs before those around you will help you achieve your goals.

Girl, be a little selfish. Be very confident. Be empowered by the things that light your fire.

15 Elton John Quotes About Music & Some Of His Most Famous Song Lyrics About Love

The Rocket Man’s best sayings.

The flashy and flamboyant Elton John is one of the most successful solo artists to grace the Earth. His mass success saw him sell over 300 million records, produce more than fifty Top 40 hits, and have 27 top 10 singles, including nine number one songs. He collaborated with lyricist Bernie Taupin to create songs that blended styles of rock and pop.

Born Reginald Kenneth Dwight in March of 1947, Elton grew up in a semi-conservative household. His parents’ affinity for music proved to be a good environment for developing his talent. At age three, Elton had taught himself how to play the piano, his instrument of choice.

John’s ascension in music came in the early 70s. Number one songs became a regularity for the singer/songwriter. His live shows garnered attention as he would wear lavish, over-the-top outfits and his iconic glasses. Of these outfits, he said “I wasn’t a sex symbol like Bowie, Marc Bolan or Freddie Mercury, so I dressed more on the humorous side, because if I was going to be stuck at the piano for two hours, I was going to make people look at me.”

Taking a break from music later that decade saw Elton announce that he was bisexual. This was not well received at the time, and the singer was taunted for his sexuality. He later came out as gay, and became an icon for the LGBTQ community.

The 80s and 90s saw Elton become an advocate for AIDS awareness. An issue which hit close to him, as he acknowledged he could have contracted the disease and lost friends to it.

Elton John’s accolades and awards are seemingly endless. He has won multiple Grammy and Brit awards along with a Tony and an Academy award. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. Four years later, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.

An astounding career for an astounding man. Elton John and lyricist collaborated to make some iconic songs. Here are some of the best Elton John quotes and song lyrics from some of his most famously known music:

1. Music heals.

Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours.” — Elton John

2. Feeling pain.

Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won’t heal? Your eyes have

32 Strength Quotes About Starting Over When You’re Ending A Relationship Or Following A New Life Path

Change your name to Miss Movin’ On.

We are all guilty of staying around in something that was really meant to end. Maybe you spent a few months too many in a toxic romantic relationship. Or maybe you moved back home with your parents after college and just found yourself stuck there after a few years. Maybe you are at a dead end point in your career and need a fresh start. Maybe you are having a bad week.

Whatever the case is, learning how to acknowledge the past but move on into the future is one of the hardest tasks anyone can overcome. We are all creatures of habit in some respect. Wanting things to stay the same is a natural response to the fear that it brought up from the idea of things changing. We are here to remind you that change is a good thing!

Taking a leap of faith in a new place or finally calling it quits in your relationship can feel liberating at the moment. But once the adrenaline fades, we all need a little helping hand to keep us on the path to success. Once the clock strikes one in the morning and you are alone in your bed, you feel the weight of your decisions. Sure, you know it was in your best interests but having so much change around you can be incredibly jarring for anyone to take in.

Journaling is an incredibly useful tool. Writing out everything you are thinking and feeling can be your ticket to a clear head and a light heart. Remember that in transitional times, such as these, being honest with yourself and your needs should be at the forefront of your mind. Put yourself first after a time where others were putting you last.

So, when you find yourself deep in your feels about whatever has got you down and you need a friendly remind of the fierce boss that you are, turn to this list of strength quotes about starting over. In no time, you’ll be back on your A-game and ready to take this new chapter of your life by the horns.

1. Don’t be afraid to jump ship.

30 Important Quotes About Monogamy, Marriage & Relationship Commitments

Monogamy gets a bad rap these days- but it shouldn’t

Monogamy — or being in a relationship with only one person at a time — is a traditional way of looking at relationships, but despite modern ideals and an ever-evolving moral code, monogamous relationships remain the standard in terms of romance. And for good reason.

When it comes to commitment and relationships, there are many different options for the contemporary couple who is interested in non-monogamy: many people opt for open relationships (where both partners agree that they can have relationships with other people, but those relationships may or may not be known by the other party), polyamory (which is the practice of having relationships with more than one partner at the same time, with the consent of all partners involved), “friends with benefits” (a relationship that isn’t fully committed to someone) or polyfidelity (a relationship that can be with many different people, but sexual fidelity is maintained in the closed relationship). 

But the biggest downfall of both monogamous and non-monogamous relationships is cheating — which is breaking the trust and commitment in a relationship with one (or many) people.

Monogamy means always having someone you trust by your side when times are tough, so having faith in your partner and making a commitment to each other is the first step to a trustful relationship.
