10 Stages of a Mid-Semester Crisis

Time Flies when we are on our bullshit ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

10 Stages of a Mid-Semester Crisis
DU Beat

Well everyone, we have reached that point in the semester again. Everything was all fine and we were coasting through. But now that midterms are over, it hits us: we are halfway through the semester. Panic sets in and we start considering if college is really for us. So if you’re in any or all of these stages now, you are in what we call the mid-semester crisis.

1. Realizing your grades are 'average'

2. Calculating how many classes you have to go to for the rest of the semester to get at least a B

3. With that comes also calculating grades you have to get for the rest of the assignments

4. Crying over all the assignments that are due

Everyone needs a little 'wine' and 'whine'

5. Saying that you won't procrastinate anymore

6. But laughing because you know that is total BS

Me:I am going to stay in tonight

*10 mins later*

Friend: C'mon let's go to happy hour!

Me: Ok!

7. "I'm feeling overwhelmed" becomes and understatement

The last place I want to die is school....

8. Asking yourself: "Is it too late to drop out?"

Sorry mom, I'm doing this ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

9.Counting down the days until next break

10. But when all's said and done, you have a feeling of accomplishment that you are ~almost~ done

Now if only I can feel as happy as Rob Lowe.....

Alright everyone, well now that you have experienced the mid-semester crisis, it's time to get back on our bullshit! There are 5 more weeks until the end of the semester, so let's finish strong! Don't settle for "C's get degrees" go chase those A's like it's nobody's business!

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
