11 Reasons Not To Cry During Finals

Ah finals, the darkest time of the year. You're just so ready to be done with this semester and relax for a month without having to worry about school work or studying. It seems like you have 25 hours of work and only 24 hours in a day and sleep is now a luxury, almost like taking an extravagant vacation. The next two weeks offer very little relief and positivity so here are a few examples of the light at the end of the tunnel.

1. The holiday season is just around the corner!


Whether you celebrated Hanukkah last week, are looking forward to Christmas or you celebrate the winter solstice or another holiday around this time, there's a lot of cheer and happiness and cookies being exchanged.

2. Even if you're not a big holiday person, you still get to see you loved ones.


Family/friends time is at an all time high around this season. Keep your head up and know that you can spend some quality time with the people who care about you and believe that you're going to do your best on your finals.

3. ABC's 25 days of Christmas


Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, you've gotta love some of these Christmas movies. From the extremely quotable Elf, to the classics like How the Grinch Stole Christmas, these are all heartwarming movies that you can cuddle up with a warm blanket and some hot chocolate.

4. Justin Bieber's new album


Ladies (and gentleman, don't be embarrassed,) if you're feeling particularly plagued by stressed and responsibilities, just listen to a few tracks off this album and let J Biebs beautiful voice serenade your stress away.

5. The new "Star Wars" movie is almost here


Maybe you're not a nerd like I am, but this is probably going to be the highlight of 2015. A wait ten years in the making is almost over and all of our questions are about to be answered.

6. Videos of animals playing in the snow

There's really no need for explanation, they're just the best.

7. Drake ugly Christmas sweaters

8. Your sleep schedule will soon return to normal


Don't worry, in just a short week you can start going to bed at a normal hour and sleep 10 hours without waking up and feeling like you have no time to do anything that day.

9. And you'll also have an excuse to curl up in a blanket and do nothing


The glory of being between semesters is that you don't be forced to do any school work, so you might as well watch 11 seasons of a new TV show in a month and just never leave your room ever.

10. New year, new you


It's almost 2016! This seems so crazy to a lot of us, but it's nice to have a fresh start and a clean slate.

11. You're almost there


I know that it might seem like everything is the end of the world this week, but you've made it this far and you can keep going. You're one step closer toward graduating or to getting to classes that actually have to do with your major, or just toward life outside school. But you've made it to the end of the semester and that's something to be proud of.

Good luck with finals and Happy Holidays!

Remember The True Meaning of Christmas

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
