10 "Parks And Recreation" GIFs That Perfectly Describe Midterms

10 "Parks And Recreation" GIFs That Perfectly Describe Midterms

"There is nothing we can't do if we work hard, never sleep, and shirk all other responsibilities in our lives." - Leslie Knope


The week of midterms is forever a stressful time in the life of a college student. With multiple classes requiring more attention than usual on top of on-campus responsibilities, it is easy to feel like a student drowning under everything that is going on. One of the things that easily de-stresses me is the popular NBC show "Parks and Recreation." I hope this collection of GIFs relates to you and helps to remind you that you are not alone.

1. When you're super stressed but still trying to keep it together.

Friend: "How are you feeling?"

You: "Great! Just need to do five papers, study for six tests and three projects due tomorrow. I'm fine, though!"

2. When you're in the process of studying diligently, but your study space looks like an awesome place for a good nap.

You know tomorrow is your biggest test so far this semester, but that tabletop looks way too comfortable for it to be utilized solely for academics.

3. When you did not study as hard as you should have and go into the test completely doubting yourself.

You tried your best, but you cannot help but wonder how you would have felt if you looked over that study guide a little bit closer.

4. Those questions you swear were not in your book or notes.

You're all good, just questioning everything you have done for this class up to this point. You know you have never seen those words arranged in that specific way ever before in your life.

5. When you get no sleep when you are actually supposed to be sleeping.

Everyone can relate to this. College plays by its own rules when it comes to accepted sleeping habits, so I will not judge you for getting some shut-eye at 6 a.m. before an 8 a.m. midterm.

6. That one test you know you're about to absolutely crush.

No one can stop you now. You have spent countless hours memorizing terms, formulas and example problems, so now, it's time to show this exam who the real threat is.

7-9. When midterms are finally over.

It's such a glorious feeling when the second hardest week of the year is finally behind you, so treat yo'self! (It's the best day of the year!)

10. But no judgment if you need to make up for some lost shut-eye.

I know I have talked about sleep a lot in this article, but you never truly appreciate the value of sleep until a hard week like this comes around.

Good luck to everyone still taking midterms or studying for them! Just remember that a trip to Pawnee, Ind., is only a Netflix subscription away if you need a little break.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
