11 Taylor Swift GIFs All College Students Can Relate To Before Finals

11 Taylor Swift GIFs All College Students Can Relate To Before Finals

She gets us.

Every college student knows how it is. There's something about the weeks between Thanksgiving and winter break that drains you of all hope and motivation. I was overly optomistic coming back after a few days off. I told myself I would be productive all day every day. I was caught up on sleep and I was ready to dive right in. Turns out, I dove right into a brick wall. Maybe it's the change in weather, the fact that it gets dark so early, or those professors who give exams the week before finals. Regardless of the cause, it can feel impossible to push through one or two more weeks.

Ironically, Taylor Swift never went to college, but I've found some gifs that show she understands exactly how we're feeling, enjoy:

1. When you start getting old assignments back... and they're not exactly what you expected

No one gets perfect grades on every assignment, sometimes you just have to shake it off.

2. When your friends talk about how they have no work

There's always those few people who somehow manage to have the easiest professors who never assign work.

3. When you go crazy realizing how much work you have

Somewhere between 2 and 4 am everything gets fuzzy and you can't tell if you're laughing or crying.

4. When your professor is reprimanding the class for lack of effort, but you can't find the willpower to care anymore

Even if you're a good student, you know what I'm talking about.

5. When someone sends you their study guide

These are the best kinds of people

6. When you go into class for review but you don't understand anything on the board

Honestly the scariest feeling.

7. When you can no longer count the L's you've taken

I've never related to a letter more in my whole life.

8. When you get to the library and realize you left something in your dorm

... and you live on the other side of campus.

9. When the universe sends you a personalized message

this one is special just for you.

10. When your friends who don't have a ton of exams want to go out

Sorry, I have a date with calculus.

11. And finally, that face you make as soon as you open the exam

I've definitely done this a few times this semester...

Exams suck, but if you put in the time and effort, you'll be surprised at how much you can teach yourself at 1am the night before. Happy studying!

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

A New Perspective For 2019

New year, new you... but for real this time.


As this year comes to a close, I have spent a lot of time reflecting on how it went. Like every year, there have been a few bumps in the road, but overall, 2018 was not terrible (unpopular opinion, I know). With that being said, I hope to make 2019 even better, and with that, comes a change in perspective.

I am done spending my time to worry about things that I can't control. This year, I am going to focus on being a better version of myself, and the time spent on worrying and complaining needs to be left in 2018. I want to get the most out of life and reach my full potential. I will start saying "yes" more and go with the flow instead of constantly trying to control everyone and everything in my life. I want to live in the moment and not worry about all the work I could be doing instead. You only live once (YOLO), so we might as well make the best of it.

It is time to start only surrounding myself with people who love me. I know the whole "cut toxic people out of your life" idea is overdone, but it really is true. We should all simply focus on those who make us feel loved and make us better people. There is no point in being fake to others or putting yourself in a bad mood because you have to be around someone who makes you feel bitter and upset. It is time to wake up people!!! Be a little selfish and only be with people that make you happy and help you grow.

It is important for me to stay positive. Sometimes I get so caught up in the drama in my life that I forget to sit back and put things into perspective. This year will be about staying positive, but also being realistic. I can't dwell in the negativity; I want to let myself be upset, but then accept it, move on, and learn from it. This year is going to be all about learning and finding lessons in the little things.

Basically, I want to be the best I can be at everything that I do. I will try to put 100% of my effort into everything, even the little things. You get what you put out in this world, so if I do the best I possibly can, I will get the best back in return: the law of attraction… look it up.

Another thing that I want to start focusing on is looking for the good in people. My grandma has always said that you should find at least one positive attribute about every single person you meet. I know this might be genuinely hard to do for some people, but think of all the good that can come from it. This simple change can really make you a better person internally, and even a better person to be around. I want to be someone that makes other people's days brighter. If I am constantly gossiping and focusing on the bad in people, I won't be fun to be around, I would just be an insanely draining person.

2019 is the perfect time for us to start focusing on what is really important in life. We should all focus on making deeper connections with our family and friends, and just being a better human being all around. I hope this year brings us all nothing but peace and happiness.
