The end of the semester is finally here. Not sure how the semester went by so quickly, but I'm definitely okay with it because there is nothing more that I need right now than summer and to sleep for about a week.

1. *Walks into class* Please don't assign us something else.

2. Wow, all of my semester papers that I haven't started are now due in a week. Awesome.

3. I haven't understood one thing in this class all year so this cumulative final should go well.

4. I would go to the library but I know it's packed and I'll get stuck sitting next to a bunch of talkative people even though they're sitting on the quiet floor and then I'll really lose my mind.

5. I love it when people in my group project just don't answer.

6. Why do I always have finals until the very last day.

7. I really need to start packing up my room but taking down my decorations is just too sad.

8. I have so many things to do I don't even know where to begin.

9. All I want right now is some ice cream and maybe a bottle of a wine.

10. I really want to stuff my face at the dining hall but I have about $15 dollars left on my meal plan.

11. Why are so many people just sitting on the quad? Am I the only one with 86 things to do?

12. It's way too nice out to concentrate on writing this paper.

13. Another 15 page paper. Really? What professor wants to read that for all 30 students?

14. Okay, only two more Mondays and one more night class I can do this.

15. Yea, I definitely want that bottle of wine now.

16. Ugh, I just want to lay in bed and nap.

17. I've had about 4 coffees today and I still feel like a zombie.

18. Will I make it to the last day of classes? I'm not sure anymore.

19. The weather really needs to make up its mind so that I can finally pack away my winter clothes.

20. Should I skip my morning class to nap? Probably.

21. I've literally never been this tired.

22. I swear the semesters just keep going by faster and faster.

23. All professors should bring in their dogs for the last week of classes.

24. I've officially given up on looking nice for class.

25. Oh good, I just got assigned another paper. That's excellent.

26. I'll just take a quick study break and go on Facebook... *3 hours go by*

27. I need a home cooked meal so badly.

28. Can I get a degree in procrastinating?

29. I think my brain is giving up.

30. If I was less distractible I could get so much more done.

31. Someone please tell me there is extra credit for this class.

32. If I get one more pop quiz I might cry.

33. Should probably open this textbook that I've used as a paperweight all semester.

34. Please tell me my professor has uploaded all of the slides.

35. Instead of studying, I'm going to calculate the lowest grade I can get on this final and still get a B.

36. I wonder if I look as stressed as I feel.

I Went To "The Bachelor" Auditions

And here's why you won’t be seeing me on TV.

It’s finally time to admit my guilty pleasure: I have always been a huge fan of The Bachelor.

I can readily admit that I’ve been a part of Bachelor fantasy leagues, watch parties, solo watching — you name it, I’ve gone the whole nine yards. While I will admit that the show can be incredibly trashy at times, something about it makes me want to watch it that much more. So when I found out that The Bachelor was holding auditions in Houston, I had to investigate.

While I never had the intention of actually auditioning, there was no way I would miss an opportunity to spend some time people watching and check out the filming location of one of my favorite TV shows.

The casting location of The Bachelor, The Downtown Aquarium in Houston, was less than two blocks away from my office. I assumed that I would easily be able to spot the audition line, secretly hoping that the endless line of people would beg the question: what fish could draw THAT big of a crowd?

As I trekked around the tanks full of aquatic creatures in my bright pink dress and heels (feeling somewhat silly for being in such nice clothes in an aquarium and being really proud of myself for somewhat looking the part), I realized that these auditions would be a lot harder to find than I thought.

Finally, I followed the scent of hairspray leading me up the elevator to the third floor of the aquarium.

The doors slid open. I found myself at the end of a large line of 20-something-year-old men and women and I could feel all eyes on me, their next competitor. I watched as one woman pulled out her travel sized hair curler, someone practiced answering interview questions with a companion, and a man (who was definitely a little too old to be the next bachelor) trying out his own pick-up lines on some of the women standing next to him.

I walked to the end of the line (trying to maintain my nonchalant attitude — I don’t want to find love on a TV show). As I looked around, I realized that one woman had not taken her eyes off of me. She batted her fake eyelashes and looked at her friend, mumbling something about the *grumble mumble* “girl in the pink dress.”

I felt a wave of insecurity as I looked down at my body, immediately beginning to recognize the minor flaws in my appearance.

The string hanging off my dress, the bruise on my ankle, the smudge of mascara I was sure I had on the left corner of my eye. I could feel myself begin to sweat. These women were all so gorgeous. Everyone’s hair was perfectly in place, their eyeliner was done flawlessly, and most of them looked like they had just walked off the runway. Obviously, I stuck out like a sore thumb.

I walked over to the couches and sat down. For someone who for the most part spent most of the two hours each Monday night mocking the cast, I was shocked by how much pressure and tension I felt in the room.

A cop, stationed outside the audition room, looked over at me. After a brief explanation that I was just there to watch, he smiled and offered me a tour around the audition space. I watched the lines of beautiful people walk in and out of the space, realizing that each and every one of these contestants to-be was fixated on their own flaws rather than actually worrying about “love.”

Being with all these people, I can see why it’s so easy to get sucked into the fantasy. Reality TV sells because it’s different than real life. And really, what girl wouldn’t like a rose?

Why was I so intimidated by these people? Reality TV is actually the biggest oxymoron. In real life, one person doesn’t get to call all the shots. Every night isn’t going to be in a helicopter looking over the south of France. A real relationship depends on more than the first impression.

The best part of being in a relationship is the reality. The best part about yourself isn’t your high heels. It’s not the perfect dress or the great pick-up lines. It’s being with the person that you can be real with. While I will always be a fan of The Bachelor franchise, this was a nice dose of reality. I think I’ll stick to my cheap sushi dates and getting caught in the rain.

But for anyone who wants to be on The Bachelor, let me just tell you: Your mom was right. There really are a lot of fish in the sea. Or at least at the aquarium.

High School Seniors Should Be Excited For College, Not Scared

Even though it seems stressful and it is a big new place, it will be some of the best memories you will have for life.

Going into the summer after my high school graduation, all I could think about was college, and how I was going to prepare to go to a new school and move away from home. Just know, it is not as stressful as you prepare yourself for it to be. You don't need to worry about not having any friends or not knowing how to get to all the different buildings because you have to remember everyone else on campus has been in the exact same position you are in, and there are tons of people on campus to help you.

One of the things I was most worried about was classes and how to know which classes to take. My advice is to go to counseling and plan out your classes before you register. Planning out classes will drastically help you stay on track and the counselors will help you make a balanced schedule that you can actually handle.

Another piece of advice would be to not bring as much stuff for your dorm as you think you will need. By all means, bring the essential things that you will need, but remember a dorm room is very small and you share it with another person. You won't have a ton of space for extra stuff and you want to have space to move around and actually live in your dorm.

Finally, if you are concerned about meeting people and making friends, just try and be as outgoing and open as possible. Everyone else in the dorms is just as nervous as you are too meet people, it really helps to try to branch out. Joining clubs or greek life also helps you meet people around campus with common interests as you.

College is not something to be scared of. Even though it seems stressful and it is a big new place, it will be some of the best memories you will have for life.
