10 Things College Students Post On Social Media

We post about procrastination while we're doing it. Oops.

Every college student in the world today probably updates three or more social media accounts at a time. True enough, according to research, we spend and average of 9 hours in a day on our phones just by using social media. Crazy, right? With our endless scrolling through our feeds and timelines, what do we really post? Check out the list we made of the most common things college students post on social media below and tell us on the comment section below which one you can relate the most!

  1. Complaints about group work

Instead of getting work done, we fill up our Twitter timelines with complaints about how difficult working in a group is especially if we’re not grouped with our friends and we’re stuck with free loaders.

  1. The struggle of pulling an all-nighter and sleepless nights

What else to post when you are writing your 5000-word essay overnight other than about pulling an all nighter, right? #TeamNoSleep #ZombieModeOn #Nocturnal

  1. Procrastination

We always say we're going to be so productive over the weekend and then we end up like this. Oops.

  1. Coffee is life

One word: Procaffeinating. College has turned coffee into our second blood group. It’s like we can’t get any work done if we haven’t had our first cup of joe #TrueStory

  1. Being broke

Every college student's problem: being broke. How do you even budget your everyday transportation fee, school project materials, food, food, and food??

  1. Hugot

Ahh, probably one thing that you'll always find in a college student's social media are different types of hugot. It may be about love, school, life or anything and everything under the sun. Plus, we always have that one friend who loves to post about hugots and we just can't help but share it as well.

  1. The need for a vacation / break / travel

When we are almost done with the semester, all we can really think about is having that much needed break.

  1. Thesis

The final obstacle between college seniors and their diploma and the ultimate source of stress of college students.

  1. Graduation

Some days we just can't help but feel a bit emotional and think about what life after college holds. Realizations start to sink in and the word "adulting" can't be more real.

  1. Friends and Family

In the end, a college student's social media wouldn't be complete without photos of their hangouts with friends and bonding with their families. These are the people who's always right there beside them, accompanying them and guiding them through this crazy college journey and without them, college would probably be harder than it is now.

"Today, I Won"

I always caught feelings for someone, and hoped so much that one day there could a thing between the two of us. I'm usually the one that makes the effort to buy and/or make cute gifts, chats them every other day, and stays up all night with him.

When I was 16, my childhood crush suddenly came back into my life. We'd constantly send updates to each other, recommend favorite songs and talk even the most random things. He'd even text me as early as 6 to just greet me good morning almost everyday. I hoped so much that when I confessed, he suddenly stopped talking to me.

For short, he ghosted me. Those 6 months I spent talking to him, allotting my time for him, and staying up until 3 am for him - all gone in a simple confession. Although I had a few crushes before him, he's the only one that got me in real pain. It was the kind of pain that I never thought I'd experience. It was the kind of pain that I couldn't believe.

After 7 years (it happened back in 2017), I thought he came back into my life to stay, but I guess he's just one of the guys who distanced. I felt a complete loser that time. But during this quarantine, everything was different. I caught feelings for someone else, but he treated me with the best kindness yet.

It happened at 2 am, May 30, 2020, when I impulsively confessed my feelings through messaging him. After saying my feelings, he responded with genuine and kind words. We both even complimented each other. Although the feelings didn't reciprocate, I still found a connection that can't be replaced with any guy.

To my 16 year old self, here I am, 18 and happy. You may have felt that time was the biggest regret and loss, but I'm here to tell you, we won. Today, I won.

Why our high school barkada is the best?

Remembering our high school years entails quite a lot reminiscing of the things we all been through when we were younger. You’ve experience a lot of new things during those 4 wonderful years and did most of them with the few people you consider your barkada. And through a series of all the lunch breaks you had together, the walks you took on the way home, and taking the same classes, you never thought you’d survive, you have made your life’s greatest friends.

Here are some of the reasons why your high school barkada is the best:

1. You figured out early teenage life together. The transition one have undergone from being a kid to a teenager wasn’t easy. For a moment you are not sure whether you should have played with your friends during recess or you should have just sat down and ate your food because you were too old for games. But whatever it is you chose to do, having friends who were as clueless as you make everything feel easier because you know, deep down, you’d figure things out eventually. You just need good company.

2. They were with you during your “jeje“ days. I bet you have pictures taken with Camera360 and Retrica. You also have pictures edited using Pizap with embarrassing captions and you somehow kept some of them so you could have something to post online during their birthdays.

3. They know all your exes. They will never EVER forget the name of an ex-boyfriend, an ex-fling, an ex-crush, and an almost you had. They will remind you of your every questionable love decision but you’ll just laugh anyway while saying “Past is past”.

4. They never judge you. They have welcomed you to their lives when you thought jelly shoes and checkered polos were the bomb! They were quick to have told your teachers that you were not feeling well so you could go home when you really just needed to poop. You tell them every embarrassing story you have and were fine with it.

5. You can always count on them. From the moment you first fell in love and the moment you first had your heart broken, they were with you. They were with you the moment you lost a parent and at moments when you thought you had nothing. Through every break-up and breakthrough, they were there to be your support system.

6. They are your family. Your high school friend’s family is your own family’s extension. Their parents are like your own. Don’t you feel a little kilig whenever your friend’s parents call you “anak”? And then eventually calling them mama and papa became so natural? I felt that, all the time.

7. They will always be your home. They are your place of refuge and security, the place who offers you their hands when you feel lost and the place you run to when you need saving. No matter how much time and distance separate you, they will be the one’s that you always long for and they are the one’s that you will always return to.
