10 Types Of People You See During Midterms

Midterms bring out the best and worst in us.


Midterms week is a hectic time. You see all sorts of people on campus during this week of chaos. Here are 10 types of those people:

1. The one who lives in the library.

This person will actually relocate to the library for the entire week. Don’t be surprised if you see a tent set up on the 8th floor because this person would not waste valuable study time traveling back and forth to their dorm.

2. The one who doesn’t give a sh*t.

Libraries? Nah. This person either just doesn’t stress, or doesn’t care. They’ve accepted their fate, come what may.

3. The one who eats their feelings.

This person is in full panic mode and cannot deal with the realities of midterms, so instead you can find them socializing over Moe’s and drowning their woes in queso.

4. The one who tries to learn a semester of info in a week.

This person assumes that going to the review session offered will magically explain the curriculum that they have dismissed all semester. This person goes all out in one last ditch effort to figure out the class they’re taking.

5. The one who pulls an A out of thin air.

This person procrastinates on a regular basis but when midterms come along they somehow get everything done. There is no stress, no fuss, and yet they find their way to an A. These people drive their friends nuts, but you have to be at least a little impressed, right?

6. The one who doesn’t sleep.

This person is recognizable by the bags under their eyes, their catatonic state and generally lack of speaking. This person will forgo sleep the week of midterms learning every ounce of info they can. Better hope your alarm works the morning of the test, or you’ll regret the lack of z’s!

7. The one with an invisible caffeine drip.

This person is all energy all the time, and the only explanation is they have coffee in their blood. Every time you see them, they’re in line at Starbucks getting a venti-something with extra shots of espresso.

8. The one who competes during midterms.

“You have a test and a paper? Well I have 6 tests, and 3 papers, HA!” This person seems to thrive on having more work than everyone else. Not sure why that’s something you’re excited about, but best of luck to you!

9. The one who disappears.

Was that person even here for midterms? Were they hibernating? Did they go on vacation and say screw midterms? No one knows.

10. The one who stays cheerful the whole week.

This person is few and far between, so if you find one, keep them close. You’ll need all the positive vibes you can get!

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.
