11 Things Every College Student Needs To Hear During This Point In The Semester

11 Things Every College Student Needs To Hear During This Point In The Semester

Stressed, broke, and tired: just your average college student.

It's that time of the semester when almost every college student is feeling the exact same thing: stress. We're all stressed over the never ending school work, how broke we all are, trying to shed that freshman 15 before summer, and beginning to look for summer jobs. Not only can this take a toll on all of us, but it leaves us without any motivation to even get any of these things done. Even though we are literally so close to the end of the semester, we'd all rather binge watch Netflix and eat an entire pizza by ourselves then finish all of our papers and projects that every professor decides to assign at the last minute. Even though there is no motivation left, here are a few things that every college student needs to here towards the end of the semester.

1. Go ahead and dress like a bum to class, we all understand.

We're all at that point where we are running on maybe three hours of sleep and only have time to throw on a pair of sweats, leggings, or even pajamas, Trust me, we've all been there.

2. As long as you've tried your hardest, your grade will reflect that.

I mean, C's get degrees, right?

3. Go ahead, finish that last piece of pizza.

Stress eating is the only way to get through college successfully.

4. It's okay to take a break.

Because why would't you ever listen to Ryan Gosling? But honestly, a break while studying or writing a paper can give your mind time to catch up and make sure you can refocus.

5. Not everything has to been done all at once.

Make sure to prioritize your time so you don't feel as if everything is pilling up and you only have a short amount of time to complete it.

6. Sometimes procrastination actually does help.

Yes, procrastination is usually a bad thing, but not if you have truly been planning, thinking and letting yourself truly understand what the task is, then procrastination can only help in the long run because you have given yourself more time to do the assignment correctly, rather than just doing it to get it done and over with.

7. This dog believes in you.

Because dogs make everybody's lives a little bit better.

8. You are not alone.

Chances are, almost all of your peers are probably going through the same things you are. Try talking it out with them and motivate each other to keep pushing forward.

9. You've made it this far, why give up now?

Again, if you say so, Ryan!

10. Cry for hours if you need to.

It's probably better to let it all out rather than holding it in. Plus, most likely you aren't the only one doing so.


Go ahead, smile and do your little happy dance.

I hope you've all had a huge sigh of relief after hearing all of these things. Just remember, it will all be over soon and all of your hard work will be worth it in the end. Keep pushing forward and summer break will be here before we know it!

Lil Yachty's 'Lil Boat 2' May Not Be Enough To Keep Him Afloat

Here's what you need to know about "Lil Boat 2."

On March 9, Lil Yachty dropped his newest album, “Lil Boat 2.” The album consists of 17 songs, most of which were probably better off not being on the album and seriously failed to impress me, despite its early success on iTunes.

In all of the reviews I have ever written, I normally organize it song-by-song, giving feedback to each track. This time, however, I think I can save all of us time on this article by just being completely honest about Lil Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”

Most of the songs from 1-10 on the tracklist are NOT worth listening to.

Other than those three, every other song from the top ten songs on the tracklist were absolute garbage.

The beats to the songs weren’t that bad but, overall, it just sounded like Lil Yachty and his features were WAY too high to be in the studio.

Yachty’s flows, bars and rhyme schemes were ALL weak throughout the entire album, and if it weren’t for the final six songs on “Lil Boat 2,” this review would be nothing but bashing Lil Yachty.

From the 12th track on the album, "MICKEY" (ft. Offset, Lil Baby) the album runs through much more smoothly, regardless of how basic those last couple of songs are.

I imagine Lil Yachty’s fanbase consists mostly of teenagers who eat Tide for Internet views and anybody who knows nothing about what a real rapper is.

Seriously. I cannot stress how elementary this album is. If you’re looking for new rap music to listen to, check out Tory Lanez’s album, “MEMORIES DON’T DIE,” or Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino II.”

Both of those albums are so much better than “Lil Boat 2” that they make Yachty look like an amateur — which he is.

Final Score: 5.8/10

Did Draco Malfoy Ever Get The Clout He Deserved?

Yes, he was literally the worst for a majority of the series. But does this one moment make up for it all?

The new trailer for the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series just dropped and I have a LOT of feelings. Mainly:

With the release of this new trailer, the only natural thing to do is to binge watch the "Harry Potter" series. Now, if you don’t know about "Harry Potter" series, I’m going to assume that you were born literally minutes ago. For those of you who do know what I’m talking about, let’s chat.

Throughout the series, we see some pretty rotten witches, wizards and muggles. The worst being Bellatrix LeStrange, in my opinion.

*Side note: Voldemort killed meticulously and with his own “reasoning” that supported his actions. Bellatrix killed for sport. No reason was necessary to support her choices. Regardless of who I thought was worse, it doesn’t change the fact that they were both 100% assholes.*

Throughout the movie, and even more so throughout the book, we are able to see slight character arcs for a majority of these lesser-evil villains, such as Petunia Dursley, Narcissa Malloy, Snape, and Draco Malfoy.

After Snape, Draco had one of the biggest character arcs in the series. He saved Harry and, ultimately, through his actions, gave Harry one last chance to defeat Voldemort. How? Well, Pottermore explains it best, but to put it simply, he refused to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione up to Bellatrix and the Snatchers.

This moment is so pivotal and apparent in the books, yet on screen, while it’s still a huge moment, it still gets downplayed. The weight of the moment isn’t truly felt and could be taken as more of a mistake on Malfoy’s part. That moment, if not understood correctly, could change many viewers' opinions about Draco's transformation from elitist, bigot, selfish snob to a (slightly) unknowingly ignorant, scared, defeated teen.

Damnit, J.K. Rowling, you’ve done it again. Even after all these years, somehow I still always seem to find something new.

Now let’s talk about how the new movie will allow the Ministry to apparate onto Hogwarts?!
