10 Gifs That Describe Midterms Perfectly

10 Gifs That Describe Midterms Perfectly

Finally, something we can all relate to.

Ahh, midterms. It's like just yesterday syllabi were being handed out and you were sitting in your room watching Netflix without a care. Now you're wearing sweatpants to class with your hair in a bun and coffee in your hand with eyes that look like you haven't slept in weeks. Probably because you haven't.

The time has come, you've been studying every note, every page, every equation that you can in order to pass this test. A lot of times you have no idea what to expect, so you have to know absolutely everything in order to feel at least half-way good about it. So here's a little something to make you happy, stress-free, and ready for midterms.

1. The test will, indeed, include topics that your professor did not go over on the exam

Trust me, it will be there. It won't be from any powerpoint slide and you will be confused.

2. You will sleep-over in the library for at least two out of three days you have exams

Take hold of you pillow tight tonight because it will be the last time you use it for the next week.

3. That classmate that sends a class-wide email asking for the study guide that you worked on for days, claiming they had an emergency and couldn't fill it out.

We know your games Jeremy, we've all been there. Just suck it up and do it yourself.

4. Coffee is Love, Coffee is Life

Coffee will be your best friend on overnighters and early morning exams. Don't you forget that.

5. The amount of scantrons in your backpack right now is ridiculous

So. Many. Scantrons.

6. The amount of times you wrote, "DON'T FORGET A SCANTRON," is also ridiculous

Okay, I have checked at least four times to make sure they are in my backpack. One more won't hurt.

7. The test is handed to you and you have literally no idea what any of the questions are asking

At least I know how to spell my own name.. or do I?

8. Finally, it's over. You can forget everything you know about the 18th century.

You come out of the room feeling defeated, but free. Like you've made it successfully through battle.

9. Back to relaxing and catching up on Gilmore Girls.

19 seasons of SVU? Don't mind if I do!

10. Except for the fact that you have eight projects due in the next two weeks and you have finals to study for

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

10 Ways To Start Your Days Off Right By Bringing A Little Joy And Positivity Into Your Morning

"Listen to the birds sign a sweet morning song."


I'll be the first to admit, I'm not exactly what you would call a "morning person." That being said, I think it's high time I bring some joy into my mornings. I mean, life is beautiful, and by not enjoying mornings, I think I'm missing out on a potentially enjoyable part of life.

So if you want to start enjoying your mornings like me, here are ten things you might want to try doing to start your days off right.

1. Make a happy and healthy breakfast.


Make some toast, eggs, fruit, granola, or yogurt. OR, break out the bacon and have a good time. Any of those options sound like a good morning to me.

2. Drink a fresh cup of coffee (or tea).


For me, I don’t think anything could beat the smell of a coffee being made in the morning. So whether you’re into coffee or tea, use a nice warm drink as a way to bring a little joy into your mornings.

3. Smile when you wake up.


Start your morning with a good old-fashioned smile. Look in the mirror, look at how wonderfully made you are, and take a moment to smile and take that in.

4. Try to stay off of social media when you first wake up.


I know, it’s all too easy to become glued to your phone these days, BUT I think that’s a few moments of time away from it, and away from social media, can be a good way to stay positive in the mornings.

5. Journal your thoughts going into the day.


Take a pen, pencil, and a piece of paper, and take a moment to write down your thoughts, feelings, emotions, or anything else on your mind going into a new day.

6. Put on clothes that make you feel happy.


Put on whatever outfit makes you happy, whether that’s a cute sweater or a t-shirt. Wear something that makes you feel good.

7. Watch the sunrise.


OK, so I know you might not be able to do this every morning, but I think that watching the sunrise is the perfect way to start any day. What could be better than taking in all of these wonderful creations?

8. If you can, sit outside and enjoy our planet.


On that note, take some time to sit outside and enjoy the early morning and the world around you. Start your morning off with some time to really just sit back and take it all in.

9. Spend some time reading something you enjoy.


Grab a good book, a magazine, or whatever it is you might like to read. Take some time to clear your mind, and then fill it with lots of good writing.

10. Listen to the birds sign a sweet morning song.


Arguably my favorite thing on the list, I truly can see no downside to listening to the birds chirping away in the morning. If you can, take some time to listen to nature’s sweet morning song.

Hopefully you can try one of these tactics to brighten up your morning, and in turn, maybe even brighten up your whole day. We live in a wonderful world, and I think that it's time we start to recognize that.
