Towards the middle of the semester, it's easy to get overwhelmed and anxious.

Assignments begin to pile up, it seems like there are non-stop tests, and professor assign longer and longer essays. The workload exponentially multiplies week by week. Plain and simple, it's stressful. You sleep less, begin to survive off of instant ramen and cheap coffee, and spend all your free time studying. Worries can pile up, and often, you end up feeling like there's no light at the end of the tunnel. However, no matter how bad things may seem, there's always something good somewhere in the future. That is to say, you always have something to look forward to.

Here are some examples:

1. Your next plate (or platter) of nachos (or fries, or mozzarella sticks, or onion rings...).

2. The next dog you'll get to pet.

3. Or the next cat

4. Your next fun night out with friends.

5. Your next vacation.

6. The next perfect grade you get on a test, essay, or project.

7. Your next ice cream sundae or other sweet treat.

8. The next beautiful sunset you'll get to see.

9. Or the next beautiful sunrise.

10. The next holiday you'll celebrate with loved ones.

11. Seeing and spending time with your pets when you come home.

12. Your next birthday and birthday party.

13. The next amazing concert you'll experience.

14. The next time you'll hang out with your best friend.

15. The next time you'll get to eat your favorite food.

16. The next amazing date you'll go on.

17. The next joke you'll hear that will make you laugh so hard you cry.

18. The next time you'll re-read your favorite book.

19. The next time you'll get to sleep in.

20. How eventually, you'll feel stress-free and 100% happy.

So don't worry. Take a deep breath, grab some coffee, tea, or water, and start tackling your assignments. I promise, eventually you'll get through all your work and things will feel less hectic and overwhelming. While life can definitely get stressful at times, difficult times won't last forever. Life isn't always all smooth sailing and sunny skies, but the good times often outweigh the bad. No matter how stressful midterms get, remember: you got this, and things will begin to get better soon. Life is full of ups and downs, and with every low point, a high point is somewhere around the corner. No matter how bad things seem now, better times are sure to come.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11171

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
