5 Ways Fight Club Accurately Describes Finals Week
Fox Films

Finals week(s) are one of the most terrible times of the year. Thank goodness it is only two weeks out of the year. You had the class for a semester, but nothing can prepare you for a five page, cumulative French exam that you know that you can only ever get a C on because the teacher hates you. Okay, maybe I had a very stressful finals week.

Regardless, those few days of finals can make you feel like you had an emotional beating with every classroom you walked into. Maybe sometimes instead of emotionally beating yourself, you felt like physically beating up someone else... Anyways, I can't really talk about it because the first and second rule is to not talk about it, but here is how it accurately describes finals week:

1. You can't really tell if you are asleep or awake [rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F12%2F635986299098656204-1115228281_MJiQYHt.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=178&h=8269449a2b2233d92fd31561617a94ef68df2d8cecf8423588a3ae3bf48ff184&size=980x&c=3438856731 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F12%252F635986299098656204-1115228281_MJiQYHt.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D178%26h%3D8269449a2b2233d92fd31561617a94ef68df2d8cecf8423588a3ae3bf48ff184%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3438856731%22%7D" expand=1]

Sometimes that studying gets so long and so late, you can feel as though you've reached some transcendent state between asleep and awake. All you want to do is sleep, but there's just one more powerpoint that you feel you need to go over.

2. You feel that more pain is more gain

The less sleep you get, the less talking with your friends, the less senseless snapchats means better grades. Of course, better grades means better job, better wife, better house, better car. You know the process.

3. When you're not studying for finals, you don't talk about finals[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F12%2F635986309498337763-950486369_do-not-talk-about-fight-club.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=120&h=2c52110308e3f50ffa54639865263ef6b498ae27eee4c7f19ba0d65949f106bd&size=980x&c=204762289 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F12%252F635986309498337763-950486369_do-not-talk-about-fight-club.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D120%26h%3D2c52110308e3f50ffa54639865263ef6b498ae27eee4c7f19ba0d65949f106bd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D204762289%22%7D" expand=1]

If you're lucky enough to have a break, which are few and far between, you don't want to think about the beast you are about to face. You want to sit there and watch those Logan Paul videos in peace.

4. You've considered alternative ways to get out of taking your finals

Whether it was going into their office and convincing your professor to not giving you a final, faking a death in the family, or getting on the next flight out of there, you've thought of what are ways you could get out of it.

5. You've doubted your religion

You've seriously considered if our Supreme Overlord would put you through Dante's Inferno.

Hopefully, everyone's finals went well and if you're going through them right now or soon, may the odds be ever in your favor. For now, take a break, browse Odyssey and not realize that 3 hours have passed, and watch Fight Club.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
