It’s easy to glide through college with very few obligations to worry about, but for those of us who choose to get involved and take on multiple responsibilities at once, it can quickly become a struggle.
If you’re sitting there wondering if you even have time to read through this article, you’ll be able to relate to these 20 things only constantly busy girls will understand.
1. Your life is run by a never-ending to-do list
And crossing things off of it is invigorating.

3. Sleeping in is not a thing
Early bird gets the worm!
4. Actually, sleep in general isn’t really a thing
Sleep is for people with time.
5. You’re never home
Who needs home when you can sleep in the library?
6. Your laptop is your lifeline
MacBook, you are everything.

Killing two birds with one stone like a boss.

Yes, Mom, I’m fine. No, I don’t need counseling.
15. You’re always carrying a thousand things with you
Today’s lunch, yesterday’s outfit, phone charger, makeup, laptop, homework.
16. When you do have free time, you have no idea what to do with yourself
So I guess I should like, lay down maybe?
17. You find yourself rushing from place to place for no apparent reason
Don’t ask, it’s a habit.

Sure thing, let me add it to my to-do list!
