Syllabus week is upon us. Some refer to it as "chillabus week." Some call it a celebration. Some even refer to it as a holiday more important than Christmas. This week is a time where classes are short, optimism is high and fun is never ending. The beauty of this week is something that college kids everywhere can appreciate. Although I might be one of the few that are a part of the "Shameless" fandom, I know that I'm not the only one who is beyond thrilled for this celebratory time. So here's the cast with the stages of this sylly week.

1. When you reunite with your roommates after being separated during winter break.

2. But the fun doesn't last because you all have to unpack from the 3+ weeks you were gone.
