When only one more month drags into eternity

20 Signs To Let You Know You're Over This Semester
Never giving up on giving up-Word Press

o else is done with this semester? Or life? Why is the second semester so hard? And if you're a freshman, or someone who remembers freshman year, you know the freshman slump is real. But, we are SO close. Almost a month left. But that month doesn't mean much because it's still a month! It's a month where your professors decide to throw all of the knowledge at you! It's a month where you realize summer is rapidly approaching and you won't see your friends for forever. It's a month where you'll try to study your brains out while trying to fit in everything you want to do before you leave for what will feel like forever. This month will drag out into what feels like eternity... And don't forget about finals and all of the lovely papers and projects that your professors think are totally appropriate to overload on you in this ONE month. So, if you find yourself agreeing with any of the following, then you too might be over this semester...

1. An eye roll is your first response to everything

20. You debate quitting this whole college thing, but then you realize you're almost finished with the year so there's no point now
