<? echo $type; ?> 10 New Year Resolutions for College Students

I would consider myself a HUGE advocate for college-age people. I think my track record would show that.

That said, I thought I might throw out a few things (with a bit of sarcastic tone behind them) that college-age people might consider including in their New Year’s resolutions.

So, let me say it this way (just in fun): If I were a college student today, these might be some of my New Year’s resolutions:

  1. I will stop considering my jeans clean simply because I put them in the dryer with a dryer sheet.
  2. I will think twice and consider what I am saying about myself before I post/tweet “selfies.”
  3. I will stop making romantic decisions with the 13-year-old part of my brain.
  4. I will stop using Emoji’s to cover up my lack of ability to articulate emotions into words.
  5. I will start washing my sheets before I can see the dirt ring where I lay down.
  6. I will stop stalking my old high school friends’ Facebook pages so I can judge their life decisions.
  7. I will stop calling in “sick” to work simply because I’m tired from hanging out with friends until 4:00 a.m.
  8. I will hit “snooze” less—maybe 2-3 times maximum.
  9. I will stop spending so much time managing my social networks and then complaining that I’m too busy.
  10. I will stop spending money as if it grows on the trees my parents paid for.
