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.

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
