IN THE AFTERNOON: THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF COLLEGE

So this is a more serious topic and will probably be one of the more serious ones in my college edition

But I do feel like I need to talk about this topic because although college is great and experience so much in that time; some of these experiences are not always positive

And I feel like people don’t like talking about these experiences

And I want people that have had these experience maybe while they were in college or they had it at work or anywhere knows that they can ask for help and that its okay to not know what to do

I personally went through a lot of negative things in college that all shaped me as a person. I first lost friends that I thought I would have for a lifetime and thought maybe I did something wrong. But, ultimately I figured out this is just how life works.

Loss of sleep was such a big thing because it really can mess with your body and also not sleeping at around the same time everyday. I, like many college students, do not sleep my full 8 hours and also do not sleep at the same time everyday. This made me even more tired, gave me more headaches and just made me unhealthier.

Combined with loss of sleep I gained weight and it was more like freshman 50. And although gaining weight wasn’t the biggest issue, what was the biggest issue was that I was not eating right. Most of the time I would find myself ordering out and eating junk food. This lead me to what I self diagnosed as gastritis and let me tell you it is not fun. Vomiting and feeling nauseous with belly pain is the WORST. To the point that it makes you not want to eat because your scared you will vomit what you just ate or won’t be able to sleep.

Some people lose weight because they forget to eat and that can be scary too.

I had minor anxiety and depression while in college. Although it wasn’t severe it was still there and it was kind of scary sometimes because it can take over your life. Sometimes I didn’t want to get out of bed and not cause I needed more hours of sleep(because I do) but because I just felt like why should I. And I know other college students such as myself who deal with these same issues.

Now last but not least college can get you addicted to drug or alcohol. I personally decided to stay away from these thing for the better of my health but I know others that use it. And it all depends why you do it and how much you consume… but most times its because your out and about in a party or you need an extra boost to get you to pull your all nighter. I’ve heard people taking adderall to make them focus and I’ve also heard of people drinking because they’re depressed.

Now I just want to say that there are always resource on college campus to help you out with any of these issues SO pleasee reach out if you need it. There are health centers, hotlines or even asking a friend for help.

ALSO I want to say the college experience is not always bad!! Its not and you will meet so many people that’ll make it better. I’ll also write a post of the positives of college. College is just an experience of life and its a roller coaster but its worth it.

BE the healthiest you can be and treat your body righht!! See ya!

IN THE MORNING: HELP

Theres nothing wrong with asking someone for help

And I know its hard for some people because being prideful is a really hard thing to deal with

And having to ask for help could seem more like a job then actually something that could help you in the future

BUT we all need help sometimes no matter how independent we might think we are

And it could be for the smallest thing or for a life changing thing but you need help

So ask for help!

You might not like the answers and you might not even like what people have to tell you or when they also include their opinion along with their answer

But thats a step you took and eventually if you keep asking question and figure out whats the right question to ask then you’ll get the answer you want

And nothing feels better then getting the right answer

or better an answer and an action

SO I’m here to tell  you that SUCK IN YOUR PRIDE and just ask the question

and if you don’t get the answer you want then ask a better question or ask someone else because eventually you’ll get the answer

AND don’t give up just don’t….don’t do it….. I’m telling you not to

Because eventually you’ll look back and think maybe I should of done more or maybe I should have asked that question

AND last thought (promise)

If the answers are taking a little longer then usually to get to you BE PATIENT I understand I’m very impatient myself but a desperate person looking for an answer is not the best thing

So relax, ask questions and wait to see what comes along
