23 Thoughts You Have During Finals Week

Ah, finals week. Five days of cramming, studying, staying up past midnight, coffee, and calculating the lowest score you need on the exam to pass the class. The majority of your success in each class, as well as your semester GPA depends on these five days. It's a super stressful time and can make the wildest thoughts pop up in our minds. Here's how my brain usually thinks during finals week.

1. How am I POSSIBLY going to remember all of this information by tomorrow morning?

2. I should start studying now......after this nap.

3. Crap, that nap lasted a lot longer than I thought it would....

4. I'll just study after I eat dinner.

5. Shit, it's 10:00. I'm screwed.

6. Well, I think I at least, PASSED the exam....

7. C's get degrees right? It was a hard class anyway. I have four more classes to pull up my GPA.

8. OK, I Really need to study for this exam this time. No excuses.

9. *Checks blackboard* I pulled of a 90 on the exam?! OK, miracles do happen. I got this.

10. .....But on the other hand I need at least a 98 on my philosophy final to bull off a B.....better get on that one.


12. I'm stupid. I'm going to fail out.

13. I'm probably the only one doing bad. Everyone else is probably getting A's. All of my friends are so much smarter than me. What is wrong with me?

14. It's just because I have a bad professor.

15. My life is over if I fail this final. It's 30% of my grade. If I fail the final I fail the class. Then my GPA goes down. Then I fail out of my major. I'm screwed.

16. I'm too stupid for my major. I'm never going to get a real job. I'm just going to be a housewife.

17. Shit, I really need to get to sleep.

18. Well, at least the final is over with. Whatever happens, happens.

19. I survived the week! Let's have some wine and try not to think about checking Blackboard!

20. *Checks Blackboard every five minutes*


22. OK I just need one more grade to get my GPA. Please, please be an A....

23. OK, I survived. I did my best. Now time to enjoy six weeks of break!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

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.
