5 Things No One Tells You About College Midterms

5 Things No One Tells You About College Midterms

Why did no one feel like telling me this?


Going into college you have an idea of what exams and midterms are going to be like. In high school, it was basically a week in which each teacher gave you a multiple choice exam to ensure that you would have enough grades in for the quarter. At most, they were 50 questions and teachers usually talked with each other to make sure they were not on the same day. In college though, the reality of midterms is a much harder one then what I was expecting.

Exams are not just during one week, but can happen for several weeks in a row...


In high school, midterms are usually only one week long. You will have an exam each day but once it is over you can move on with your life and enjoy the rest of your life. In college, there might be times where you have an exam every single week for five weeks straight. You won't ever be able to live your life because you know that the next week you have another exam.

There are not just multiple choice exams, but papers and projects too...


Some people are not test takers, so do not worry you will also have papers and projects due during midterms week. You might have a paper due the night before of an exam, so you will have to go back and forth between reading material you should already know and trying to reach your word count. And for teachers who assign projects rather than papers, you will have to spend your time hunting down art supplies or learning how to use a random software.

You most likely will have multiple exams on the same day...


You might be lucky enough to have only two classes on one day, only for both of those teachers to assign an exam on the same day. There are so many days in a month and yet both of these teachers seem to know that the other is assigning an exam on that same day. Even worse, you might end up with those classes covering similar material, turning your brain into mush.

You probably could plan so that you can start studying weeks before, but you won't...


Intelligent and proactive students will start studying for their exams several weeks before, so that they won't have to stress about them last minute. The reality is that very few people are like this, even if they want to be. With the constant workload given to students in college, with our free time the last thing we want to do is study for something that is days or even weeks away.

11:59 pm will become your least favorite time...


I know that even years from now, 11:59 pm will always scare me a little bit. Knowing that you have a paper or project due and that the minutes are slowly counting down to midnight instills a fear in you that I can't seem to shake. Regardless of the fact that I usually get it done hours before, the finality of 11:59 is what adds a certain level of terror.

At the end of the day, the harsh reality is that college exams are nothing like high school exams. They usually are not about just having grades in, but rather actually testing you about the material. So honestly, the biggest advice is to expect the unexpected. Oh and another thing, you will have midterms up to three times, so get ready.

5 Wedding Hairstyles For The Bride With Rapunzel-Like Hair

Stunning wedding hairstyles especially for brides with longer hair.


In the event that you have long hair and you are making sense of how to manage your hair for the big day, perusing this may very well spare you.

More often than not, Rapunzel-like ladies are frightened of getting excessively hair covering the front of her face under the cloak. Being too wild is likewise one issue, so some resort into getting it trimmed or abbreviated for the event. However, that shouldn't be the situation.

Here are a couple of beyond any doubt methods for wearing your long hair upon the arrival of the wedding without the need of shedding a couple of inches.

1. Lay it down straight


Got lovely, stick straight and impeccably gleaming hair? Display it out and don't let the cover out sparkle it. Get a headband type tiara to help shield the strands from straying into your face as you state "I do."

Ensure that your hair won't choke you as the breeze blows or be snared in the beading subtleties of the outfit. Check if the length of the hair won't barge in the outfit's trimmed or style.

2. One-sided


Breadth the majority of your locks to the other side, contingent upon which side you believe you are most OK with. Just the ladies with long bolts can pull off this look. Extra adornments like a little tiara brush or blossoms can be added to the haircut to give it a little edge and energy.

The hair can be prodded for more volume or twisted at the base for a progressively fantastic look.

3. Sensational twists


Either by a hair curler or a perm treatment, twists bring out sentiment and body to your wedding look. On the off chance that you are going for the twists to be restricted to the lower half of your hair, the headband tiara still works incredibly as an emphasis.

A touch up may be required if the twists are escaping before the supper has even begun.

4. Half up, half down


Half dos are perfect in the event that despite everything you need to have your hair down to light up your face yet don't need your grin to be concealed. Some hairdressers can even make a rose, smaller than expected bun or a complete style with your hair at the back. Concerning adornments, an exquisite yet straightforward tiara would work — not excessively but rather sufficiently only to shimmer.

5. The exemplary bun


Definitely, a major bun over the lady of the hour's hair delegated with a complex wedding tiara is everything necessary. Indeed, long hair might be a waste on the off chance that just kept covered up at the same time, envision the conceivable outcomes all on the grounds that the beauticians inspire a great deal of material to work with.

With the likelihood of interlaces, twirls, circles, prodding and weaving the look of the bun won't be much the same as some other out there. Matched with crowns and tiaras folded over the bun, this great lady of the hour look has been the one you've been longing for since age six.

5 Reasons The Mountains Are Better Than The Beach

Sorry I said it, but it's true


1. There's more to do

at the beach, there are only a few things to do, and they all pretty much come down to just relaxing, and while this can be, and is great, the mountains give you many more options when it comes to daily activities


2. It is not just seasonal

The beach is great... but only in the summer. The mountains are amazing year-round and are not dependent on the the weather. Whether it's mountain biking, hiking, skiing, climbing, kayaking, etc., you can always find something to do, no matter the weather or season.


3. It is an escape from the city

the mountains are less crowded, slower-paced and simply a new scene. You no longer have to worry about beating the lines and finding a good spot on the beach


4. You'll connect more with nature

being in the woods with nature is simply a feeling that can't be replicated anywhere else


5. Still, have beaches

They'll be lake-beaches, but the mountains still have them, giving you, as Miley Cyrus once said, "the best of both worlds".
