10 Struggles of a Collegiate Athlete

  1. 1.
    Food takes priority over a shower
    Because there are days when you have five minutes and Bath & Body Works Mango body spray comes to the rescue
  2. 2.
    When Spanish class doubles as snack time and your prof calls on you with your mouth full πŸ˜‘

    When you forget your apartment keys, but when you return from morning practice: Your roommates are all still asleep
  4. 4.
    When it's a rest day but your body still wakes you up at 7:00
  5. 5.
    Or, when you have random drug testing at 6:00 on said rest day
  6. 6.
    Graston on your sore muscles
    I want to know what genius is making a fortune off of a metal scraping tool that makes me tear up. Kudos to you, good sir.
  7. 7.
    Walking around with a giant ice-pack wrapped to your hip
    It is what it is. The real struggle comes when it's time to somehow cut it loose.
  8. 8.
    Leg drains for dayz
    Complete with a running poster and mismatched socks (see #9)
  9. 9.
    Laundry
    Because somehow, your hamper hasn't been liberated from smelly clothes since you first got to campus in August. Surely there's a bottom to that thing, right?
  10. 10.
