6 Memes For Those Mid Semester Feels

6 Memes For Those Mid Semester Feels

I'm fine, everything's fine *starts bawling*

Alas, mid semester is here and we are swamped with piles of academic work as well as numerous extracurricular events and responsibilities. After fall break, I really did not want to come back to school because I knew I had so much work to do, and the rest of the school year is going to be the same way. I have noticed everyone else around me is also so busy, so I found some memes to sum up those mid semester feels.

October has begun and professors are already discussing the midterm exam coming up in a few weeks. This means every professor has schedule an exam or major project or paper around the same time as every other professor. And, I am sure it is coincidence that this happens, but it can be very stressful. Mid term season is upon us, so prepare to hunker down in the library, drink copious amounts of water and probably caffeine, and sleep less than 8 hours every night.

This is the time of year when people start to realize their grade depends on some participation and therefore must do so in class. In many classes, students tend to say anything they can come up with for the sake of their grade. And, I totally think that is okay. Trust me, I have done it. But, mid term season is also the time when people are very stressed and easily on edge, hence the sass level can be very high. The one thing I despise about mid terms the most is when people compete to see who is more stressed. You know, when you get six hours of sleep and are barely functioning and your friend tells you he or she only got two hours of sleep and look at them! Excuse you, this is not a competition to see who can be sleep the least, spend the most hours in the library, or even drink the most amount of caffeine. First of all, it's not healthy. Second of all, it's rude. Please, don't try to one up everyone you talk to because everyone is stressed during mid terms.

When you are just too busy to do all of your homework and study, sometimes you have to skip class to prepare for another class. Students are often involved in many extracurricular activities, and trying to balance that with academics plus maintaining your own health can be hard. I would personally rather get at least six hours of sleep and choose to skip a class than pull an all nighter but get all my work done. I have yet to pull an all nighter, and I really hope I do not have to any time soon. You and your brain need time to sleep and recover, so make sure you keep yourself in check as well as your school work.

In the first few days of class, it is so exciting to be back at school with all your friends, so students often take lots of notes. Then, about two weeks in, you realize doing the readings is not necessary and you can just take notes in class. Then, you realize the professor uploads the powerpoints to Blackboard, so what's the point of taking notes too? Then, you get to studying for the midterm and decide to consult your notes on a subject you are a little confused about, only to realize you did not take notes that day. I am a copious note taker, and always find myself doing better on midterm and final exams if I have taken notes than if I do not.

Sometimes you just have those days where your brain is overloaded with information from cramming for tests, preparing presentations, and writing papers that you just want to lay in bed and maybe have a glass of wine. I recommend asking for pictures of your dog or cat, and also taking some "you" time. I am all to familiar with the midsemester break down, and always feel better after taking time for myself and talking to my mom.

This mid semester time can really take a toll on your mental health. It can be really hard to remember to take care of yourself when you're so focused on homework, tests, presentations, and papers. I have been known to forget to eat lunch and dinner, don't do that. It is so bad for your body to not have energy and fuel to use for those late nights in the library. Please remember to take care of yourself first.

To The Boy Who Will Love Me Next

If you can't understand these few things, leave before things get too involved

To the boy that will love me next, I need you to know and understand things about me and my past. The things I have been though not only have shaped the person I’ve become, but also sometimes controls my life. In the past I’ve been used, abused, and taken for granted, and I want something real this time. The guys before you were just boys; they didn’t know how to treat me until it was too late. They didn’t understand how to love me, until I broke my own heart. Before you truly decide to love me I want you to understand these things.

When I tell you something, please listen.

I’m my own person, I want to be loved a certain way. If I ask you to come over and watch movies with me please do it, if I ask for you to leave me alone for a few hours because it’s a girl’s night please do it. I don’t just say things to hear my own voice, I say things to you because it’s important to my life and the way I want to be loved. I’m not a needy person when it comes to being loved and cared for, but I do ask for you to do the small things that I am say.

Forgive my past.

My past is not a pretty brick road, it is a highway that has a bunch of potholes and cracks in it. I have a lot of baggage, and most of it you won’t understand. But don’t let my past decided whether you want to love me or not. My past has helped form who I am today, but it does not define who I am. My past experiences might try and make an appearance every once in a while, but I will not go back to that person I once was, I will not return to all that hurt I once went though. When I say those things, I’m telling the complete and honest truth. I relive my past every day, somethings haunt me and somethings are good reminds. But for you to love me, I need you to accept my past, present and future.

I’m just another bro to the other guys.

I have always hung out with boys, I don’t fit in with the girl groups. I have 10 close girlfriends, but the majority of my friends are guy, but don’t let this scare you. If I wanted to be with one of my guy friends I would already be with him, and if you haven’t noticed I don’t want them because I’m with you. I will not lose my friendships with all my guy friends to be able to stay with you. I will not cut off ties because you don’t like my guy friends. I have lost too many buddies because of my ex-boyfriends and I promised myself I wouldn’t do that again. If you don’t like how many guy friends I have you can leave now. Don’t bother trying to date me if you can accept the fact I’m just another bro.

I might be a badass, but I actually have a big heart.

To a lot of people I come off to be a very crazy and wild girl. I will agree I can be crazy and wild, but I’m more than that. I’m independent, caring, responsible, understanding, forgiving, and so such more type of woman. Many people think that I’m a badass because I don’t take any negatively from anyone. Just like we learned when we were younger, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.” Most people can’t do that in today’s world, so I stick up for myself and my friends. I don’t care what anyone thinks about me, or their option on how I live my life. The only thing I care about is being able to make myself happy. Even though I’m an independent woman, understand that I do have a big heart. Honesty when I truly care for someone I will do just about anything they ask, but don’t take advantage of this. Once you take advantage of this part of me, all respect will be lost for you.

I’m hard to love.

Sometimes I want to be cuddle and get attention, and sometimes I don’t want you to talk to me for a couple hours. Sometimes I want you to take me out for a nice meal, but sometimes I want a home cooked meal. Every day is different for me, sometimes I change my mind every hour. My mood swings are terrible on certain days, and on those days you should probably just ignore me. I’m not easy to love, so you’ll either be willing to find a way to love me, or you’ll walk out like so many others have.

I’m scared.

I’m scared to love someone again. I’ve been hurt, heartbroken, and beat to the ground in my past relationships. I want to believe you are different, I want to hope things will truly work out, but every relationship has always ended up the same way. I’m scared to trust someone, put my whole heart into them, just to be left and heartbroken again. I sick and tired of putting my whole body and soul into someone for them to just leave when it is convenient for them. If you want to love me, understand it won’t be easy for me to love you back.

When “I’m done.”

When I say “I’m done” I honestly don’t mean that I’m done. When I say that it means I need and want you to fight for me, show me why you want to be with me. I need you to prove that I’m worth it and there’s no one else but me. If I was truly done, I would just walk away, and not come back. So if I ever tell you, “I’m done,” tell me all the reasons why I’m truly not done.

For the boy who will love me next, the work is cut out for you, you just have to be willing to do it. I’m not like other girls, I am my own person, and I will need to be treated as such. For the boy that will love me next, don’t bother with me unless you really want to be with me. I don’t have time to waste on you if you aren’t going to try and make something out of us. To the boy who will love me next, the last thing I would like to say is good luck, I have faith in you.

Why Ignorance In Our Country Is Not Bliss

And it never will be.


The saying ignorance is bliss is a bunch of crap. Ignorance is ignorance.

With everything going on in our country, I think it is very important for us to be educating ourselves.

You don't trust the news? Do your own digging.

You don't understand? Do some research.

You don't have the same perspective? Share it.

You only have your religious beliefs to base your knowledge? Learn before you judge.

We live in a scary world today. People judge others they've never met or before they've ever heard their story. People involve themselves in matters that they shouldn't be involved in. People are trying to regulate other people's bodies.

People don't want to learn about the issues they so strongly believe in. People don't want to hear the other side. When did party affiliation become more important than being a human being? When did men get the power to decide what women can do with their bodies? When did we stop being compassionate? When did we stop being decent human beings?

I don't want to live in a world where I have all these questions.

I don't want to live in a world where a judicial system will convict a woman who got an abortion after she was raped, but won't convict her rapist.

I don't want to live in a world where my social media timeline makes me want to cry.

I want to live in a world where everyone's opinion matters, not just the one you agree with.

I want to live in a world where everyone's voice is heard equally, not just the one's in power.

I want to live in a world where everyone's story is taken into consideration, not just the one's the government wants you to hear.

I want to live in a world where I can raise a young girl and not be afraid for her.

I want to live in a world where we do good.

I want to live in a world where we have differences, but that doesn't make us any less equal.

I want to live in a world where we don't judge before we know.

I want to live in a world where religious beliefs are respected.

I want to live in a world where it doesn't matter what political party you are.

I want to live in a world where people see right from wrong.

I want to live in a world where I am not afraid.

What kind of world do you want to live in?
