Finals week is one of a kind. It's such a special week, that nobody can ever shut the f*ck up about it.

Any kind of help to get through finals week is gladly taken by college students. If anyone wants to help out: here's a list of things that we need in order to make the week successful.

1. Coffee

Late night studying and writing papers last-minute calls for a wake-up call. And by wake up call, I mean caffeine.

2. An Essential Oils Diffuser

Drop in some Lavender essential oil, take a deep breath, and hope for the best. Find your zen girrrrrrl.

3. Coffee

I mean, the first cup helped so much why not have another?

4. Extra Pens

Once you get into that study-groove, you NEVER know what could happen. Keep an extra pen near you in case the one you're using dies, so you don't even need to waste time finding another one and throw off your groove!

5. Maybe More Coffee

YES! This coffee has you feeling good! CAN'T STOP WON'T STOP!

6. Advil

Fight the headaches. Between looking at your computer for hours, the teeny font in your textbooks, and cramming an entire semesters worth of work into a night, the brain begins to feel mushy. Fight alllll the headaches.

7. Okay... Caffeine Helps Headaches Right?

Advil + coffee = headache cocktail

8. Comfy Clothes... But Not TOO Comfy

Sweatpants: yes

Hoodie: yes

Fuzzy Socks: Ugh yes, but no. Too comfy. This puts you in the sleep zone and WE DON'T WANT THAT. WE WANT A'S.

9. ...Maybe One More Cup

The hoodie may have been too comfy. It's prime tired and depressed hour. Time to rejuvenate.

10. A Pillow To Punch


There's this certain point when studying for finals when everything starts to go...awry. Take that aggression out on a pillow. Picture that test. You got this. SHOW IT WHO'S BOSS.

11. Do Caffeine Pills Work As Good As Coffee?


12. A Slapping Buddy

A slapping buddy is someone who slaps you every time you start to fall asleep or daydream about Harry Styles. They could possibly be the single most important thing we need for finals week.

13. Is This an Addiction?

At this point, it's the only thing giving me life.

14. Waterproof Mascara and Under Eye Concealer

Waterproof mascara, because during finals week, a mental breakdown could come out of nowhere; and under eye concealer so you don't hear the "Oh my God! You look so tired!" all day.

15. ......................

16. The Will To Live

Like I said, finals week is a special week.


There aren't words to describe the coffee before your last final.


We all deserve drinks at the end of the semester. We did it. We made it out.....

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
