For a whole week recently, school was unexpectedly cancelled because of dangerous weather conditions, so I had the pleasure of sleeping in all day for another few days. Unfortunately, time flew by faster than I could imagine, and I quickly found myself back in school in the blink of an eye. The dreaded feeling of waking up early in the morning, the exhaustion from working all evening as soon as school was out for the day. These unwanted emotions somehow crept up back into my life. So, who better to explain this than SpongeBob and the rest of the gang?


1. Waking up way too early in the morning

You know you're not morning person, so 7 a.m. is way too early to be waking up. It's a struggle to get up, even if you've set up countless alarms reminding you to wake up.

2. Attempting to get ready for school with the time you have

By the time you've decided to finally wake up, you've lost too much time to be getting ready and still be relaxed. You're rushing everywhere, making sure you're fully prepared for a long day and waking up even more in the process.

3. Trying to arrive on time for first period

You're worried that you've taken too long to get ready, so you leave in a hurry. Thankfully, you make it on time and in one piece.

4. Starving in class and wanting lunch to arrive sooner

Lunch is only 10 minutes away, but you can only think about food. Class is about to end, so there isn't much to do with the lesson being over. All you can do is sit and impatiently watch the hands on the clock move.

5. Being in that one class with your closest friends

It's the best part of the day (besides lunch), and it's also your favorite class. Why? Because your best friends are there with you. When there isn't a lesson going on, you all end up working and talking throughout the whole class.

6. Seeing that your computer needs to be charged

It's getting near the end of the school day, and you're about to start typing notes for your last class when your computer tells you that you need to charge it immediately. It was working so impeccably before this, though!

7. Making sure you have all of your homework written down

It's better than simply trying to remember every assignment, so you make sure everything's written down before you take off.

8. Going home and distracting yourself from school for a bit

Whether it's watching an episode or two of a show or just going on your phone, you need to take a second to relax after having a stressful day. You still have homework, but taking a bit of time off won't hurt.

9. Taking a nap because you can't keep your eyes open for another second

At this point, you really just want to sleep. A nap is the only thing you want to do, but as soon as you wake up, you'll have to start all of your homework.

10. Starting homework and not knowing when it'll end

You know that there's a lot to do, but it's very time-consuming after having an already-long day. You're still able to persevere through it, and you finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

11. Heading to bed much later than you initially wanted

It's pretty late, but you've done the calculations in your head; the amount of sleep you'll get if you fall asleep right then isn't too bad. And because that's all that matters at the moment, you head to bed tired and thinking about the next day.

In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.

Severus Snape Is The Worst, And Here's Why

Albus Severus, sweetie, I'm so sorry...

248

I grew up being absolutely obsessed with the Harry Potter franchise. I read the books for the first time in second and third grade, then again in middle school, and for the third time in my last year of high school. Recently, I had a somewhat heated argument with a fellow fan of the books about Severus Snape. As I've reread the Harry Potter books, I've noticed that, although J.K. Rowling tried to give him a redemption arc, he only got worse because of it. Here's why I still think Severus Snape is the absolute worst.

His love for Lily Potter was actually really creepy. When I was younger and reading the books, I always found the fact that he held fast in his love for Lily to be very endearing, even noble. However, rereading it after going through a couple of relationships myself, I've come to realize that the way he pined over her was super creepy. It was understandable during his time at Hogwarts; he was bullied, and she was the only one who "understood" him. However, she showed zero interest, and if that didn't clue him into realizing that he should back off, her involvement with James Potter should have. She was married. He was pining after a married, happy woman. If he truly loved her, he would have realized how happy she was and backed off. Instead, he took it out on her orphan son and wallowed in bitterness and self-pity, which is creepy and extremely uncool. When a girl is kind to a boy during high school (or in this case, wizard school), it's not an open invitation for him to pine for her for the literal rest of his life and romanticizes the absolute @#$% out of her. It's just her being a decent person. Move on, Severus.

He verbally abused teenagers. One of the most shocking examples of this is in The Prisoner of Azkaban when Snape literally told Neville Longbottom that he would kill his beloved toad, Trevor if he got his Shrinking Potion wrong, and then punished him when he managed to make the potion correctly. Furthermore, poor Neville's boggart was literally Snape. The amount of emotional torture Neville must have been enduring from Snape to create this type of debilitating fear must have been almost unbearable, and even if Snape was simply trying to be a "tough" professor, there is no excuse for creating an atmosphere of hostility and fear like he did in his potions class for vulnerable students like Neville. In addition, he ruthlessly tormented Harry (the last living piece of Lily Potter, his supposed "true love," btw), and made fun of Hermione Granger's appearance. Sure, he might have had a terrible life. However, it's simply a mark of poor character to take it out on others, especially when the people you take it out on are your vulnerable students who have no power to stand up to you. Grow up.

He willingly joined a terrorist group and helped them perform genocide and reign over the wizarding world with terror tactics for a couple of decades. No explanation needed as to why this is terrible.

Despite the constant romanticization of his character, I will always see the core of Severus Snape, and that core is a bitter, slimy, genocidal, manipulative trash being. J.K. Rowling's attempt to redeem him only threw obsessive and controlling traits into the mix. Snape is the absolute worst, and romanticizing him only removes criticism of an insane man who just so happened to be capable of love (just like the vast majority of the rest of us). Thank you, next.
