11 Things You Can Do To Fully Recover From Mid-Terms

Mid-terms are such an exhausting task. They are obnoxiously half-way through the semester. They appear nice. They are supposed to let you know how you are doing in your classes before your huge final takes place. But they can be so exhausting that by the time finals are here you are still by mid-terms. So here are 11 things you can do to fully recover from mid-terms.

1. Sleep


Sleep like it's nobody's business. Turn off your phone. Turn off your computer. Turn off your lights and go to bed. Don't wake up until you feel like you have slept for 20 years. Afterwards, you will feel so refreshed. Sleep is the cure to everything.

2. Movie night


Movies are the best. They take your mind off of the what-if questions that surface after mid-terms. Don't worry about how you could have answered the question better. You will go over that next week in the review. For now go off on an adventure or fall in love in a movie that is to your liking.

3. Dinner with friends


Take some time to reconnect with your friends. They miss you since you have been hiding in a cave and studying for the past month. You deserve to see them and just have fun.

4. Long walks


Taking long walks is a great reminder after mid-terms that there is a world out there that is beyond school and studying. Be sure to appreciate the world and its wonders. Carefully observe the things around you and be filled with gratitude. This is a quick remedy to finding peace.

5. Hot showers


Showers are the best place to relax. No one can bother you. You can just let all the tension melt away. Stress from memorizing endless flashcards, writing long papers, and figuring out impossible equations all disappear under the shower head.

6. Spa day


Treat yourself after mid-terms. Nothing is a better treat than a spa day. You can go to an actual spa or just do face masks in the comfort of your home. But don't forget to just focus on you.

7. Family time


Time with the family is priceless. After mid-terms you will be so grateful for your family. They are the one group of people who still love you no matter how you do on your exams. Go visit them or give them a call. Just remember blood is thicker than water.

8. Read for fun


Remember when reading use to be for pleasure and not because it was assigned to you. Go and pick up an old favorite or start a new book that has caught your eye. Bring back the joy in reading something that doesn't have to be statistically significant. It's just what you need.

9. Revisit loved hobbies


Now that mid-terms are over you can revisit your beloved hobbies. From cross-stitching to banjo playing, do the things that have always brought a smile to your heart. Just because you are dedicated to your studies, does not mean that you have to neglect the things that bring you joy.

10. Take a trip


Traveling to a new place will do just the trick to help you forget you just took mid-terms. Whether you are on the beach or on top of mountains, the linger thoughts of mid-terms will be left behind and long forgotten.

11. Cultural enrichment


Head to a museum. Visit a historical landmark. Go to the theater. Watch a ballet. Peruse through downtown. Or just jam out in your bedroom. But be sure to be enriched by the cultural wonders this world has to offer. Mid-terms are only a small part of life.

Now that you have these things to do, go do them. In no time you will be refreshed, invigorated, and ready for finals.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
