The 5 Emotions Experienced In The Last 6 Weeks Of Spring Semester

This can be the most stressful and most exciting time, which then can turn to the mix of bittersweet and excitement.

The 5 Emotions Experienced In The Last 6 Weeks Of Spring Semester

Up until this point in the spring semester, college is basically a routine that people get used to, eventually gain a handle on without worry, and hopefully learn to love. Every day is comfortably the same, you wake up, you go to class, eat some meals, hang with some friends, do homework, etc., and without even thinking about it, the school year comes to a close quicker than it started. However, this end cannot be reached until college students overcome the dreaded final six weeks of spring semester. Here are the five stops of the emotional train ride that is the journey of these last 42 days of school.

1. Stressed.


Your professors decided that it is just the best thing in the world for everyone to pile on every possible assignment at once before you can even say the words "summer vacation". This means a lot of work for students and a lot of grading for the professors, hmm interesting.

2. Over it.

The heat and the amount of stress you will have to endure from your professors sometimes just gets to you and you can just be like, "you know what? I'm just done, summer please?"

3. Ready for summer.


Most often, summer means the ability to do close to nothing if you really wanted to. Yes, people travel, work, do things for entertainment, etc., but the freedom to not have to get up early and doing homework every day, tends to get pretty tempting around this time of the year.

4. Nostalgic for the year you are about to leave behind.

With all this freedom in mind, however, there is an amount of bittersweet that often runs through the minds of college students. The last nine months have been a roller coaster and it's about to be the time of the year when all the nefriends you have spent nurturing relationships with the past two semesters, suddenly have to part ways from you to go back home. Thinking about this makes the next three months feel of possible eternity.

5. And boom, the year is over.

After this train ride of stress and nostalgia, suddenly the six weeks that you thought would never end, in fact do end. You blink and you're staying up late cramming for exams and then packing up the room you've called home for the previous nine months. The last six weeks of spring semester are an absolute whirlwind of emotions, to say the very least.

With all of these five thoughts in mind to wrap up the last 42 days, most college students probably would not have it any other way. The stresses and frustration of these weeks is pretty heavy, but the release of negative energy and the regaining freedom for the summer makes it all worth it. It's tough to say goodbye to your friends, but these six weeks probably wouldn't be the same without these five emotions.

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.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
