It is that time of year again when the all too short winter break comes to an end, and spring semester begins. It's funny how fast one month goes by when you're on break, but one month out of the semester drags on. Especially when pretty much everyone says that spring semester sucks way more than fall semester. Regardless, it is never easy going from doing absolutely nothing for a month to getting thrown back into the stress and chaos of another semester. Here are a few thoughts every college student has upon return to campus for spring semester:

1. When your alarm goes off in the morning on the first day back

2. That motivational speech you give yourself on the way in on the first day.

I'm going to do every reading, every assignment, make deans list and a 4.0.

3. But then you realize that you're actually going to have to be productive now that the new semester has started after doing nothing for a month.

Okay, so maybe not every reading...

4. When your first professor of the day calls your name, so you try to look like you're happy to be back.

5. When your professor goes around the room having everyone say a fun fact about themselves.

I'm sorry, how old are we? Is this really necessary?

6. When you walk into one of your new classes and you see one of your friends from last semester.

7. When your professor doesn't explain something because "you should remember this from high school" or "you should have covered this last semester."

I don't even remember what I had for dinner last night, you think I'm going to remember something from high school or last semester?

8. When you look at the syllabus and you can already tell that you've chosen the wrong class.

9. When the professor says attendance will not affect your grade.

10. When you walk into a class with that one professor, who says attendance and participation is mandatory, gives you multiple assignments all to be due the next class, no test will be curved, and the final is cumulative.

11. Every class you walk into you just know that this is what every professor is thinking.

12. When a former professor you have again calls on you to answer a question about something you learned last semester, and you get it right.

13. When you walk into class with your favorite professor and you see all your friends.

14. When your professor makes eye contact with you while lecturing and won't look away.


15. When the professor says there's going to be a big project that you'll have to present in front of the whole class.

Oh god, not public speaking.

16. When your professor from your early morning class asks why everyone is so quiet.

17. When you're already dreaming of summer break, but the semester just started and you have another 16 weeks of stress ahead of you.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.


I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.
