5 People You See During Finals Week

We all turn into one of these.

5 People You See During Finals Week

Christmas is right over the horizon. We're so close to being free. We decorate and start to think about presents and have the Christmas Pandora station on 24/7. But we can't let ourselves become totally immersed in the Christmas spirit yet, because we have a few big things standing in our way. To say that the stress of finals, especially when Christmas is so close, doesn't affect us would be a big lie. Everyone handles finals differently, but we all know the kind of people that the stress can turn us into:

1. Studying hermit

This person could be one of your most social friends during the regular semester, but when it comes down to the week before finals they disappear into the depths of the library and don't emerge until finals are over.

2. Procrastinator

This person (me) puts off studying until the day before their exam. They're the one's who are usually up all night consuming large amounts of caffeine and regretting their decisions, wishing they were more like the studying hermit.

3. Frazzled ball of stress

This is the person who has so much to do that they seem to be short circuiting. All they can think about is their work, so much so that they are almost prevented from doing it. This is the person you might want to avoid out of fear of letting them turn you into one of them.

4. Sleep deprived zombie

This is often what the procrastinator will become. This person has been up for at least 24 hours. They take their exams in a haze and often won't be able to remember their answers. It will take them a week of being home on break to recover.

5. Beyond Caring

This person has done more studying than they would care to and have reached the point where their grades are out of their hands. They're the ones going out during finals week or at least who leave the library before midnight.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
