8 Memes That Perfectly Describe Senior Year

8 Memes That Perfectly Describe Senior Year

Seniors go through so many emotions, sometimes only memes can really express them.

Senior year can be a bittersweet combination of elation at how near the end is and the desolation at knowing a stage of your life is nearly over. It hits us all in different ways but that combination of joy and sorrow is a pretty common theme. That, and lots of stress. Sometimes it can help to see you aren't alone, so here are some memes that capture the rollercoaster of emotions senior year can cause.

1. Being so tired of it all

People change a lot during the years they are in college, so much so that looking back can seem like an entirely different person. By the time senior year comes around many of us can be on the brink of burning out despite graduation being so near.

2. Not being ready for adulting

Little secret about adulting: No one is actually ready for it, they just pretend they are and cry a lot on the inside as bills drain their bank accounts. Seriously though, it's intimidating trying to figure out what you might be doing after graduation.

3. Worrying about never seeing your friends again

Unless your friends have similar plans for after college or you're all going to live in the same area, it can be a legitimate fear that you'll never see these friends in person again. I'm not about to pretend that's false, it just means you have to make the most of the friendships you have while you have them.

4. Stressing out

Maybe you have a super demanding senior thesis/project, maybe you're working and going to school, maybe those 300 and 400 level classes are taught by not-so-subtle sadists or any number of other things. Regardless, pretty much all seniors know all too well how stressful the last year can really be.

5. Stressing about what comes next

Maybe you're going into the workforce or gradschool. Maybe you have no clue what you're going to do and are terrified because of that. Either way, senior year is when this problem really makes itself felt.

6. Excited about what comes next

As much as we stress about it, it can be super exciting to finally get into our chosen field and begin doing the work we spent several years and more money than we care to think about to study.

7. Being emotionally done with the college experience and ready to graduate

The last few months can be the hardest to stay motivated through, but graduation being in sight can provide it's own motivation to finish everything.

8. Finally about to get that diploma!

All this hard work, just for a piece of paper. At least you're close to getting it!

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

Trust The Process

Everything happens for a reason, all you gotta do is trust it.


So many people go through their lives waiting for the next big thing. We all don't want to enjoy the time it takes to get somewhere, we just want it to happen right away. The problem is there are so many new and exciting learning experiences that we may miss because we're too focused on the next big thing.

Everyone's life path is different and just because yours is different from someone else's doesn't mean its not the right thing for you. We are all meant to be in different places, with different aspirations, and different adventures. Never base your life achievements on someones else's, and never put them on a timeline.

Everything takes time, that's why life is a process. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and all those hard periods of life are all learning experiences. It may feel like the end of the world when it's happening but if you really take the time to reflect, you'll understand what it taught you.

Where ever you are is where you're supposed to be.

What's the rush? Enjoy the moment you're currently in and relax. Too many people stress about every little thing. Understand that where you are, is where you're supposed to be and trust the process and plan that God has given you.

When you go through life in full speed, you'll wake up when you're old and realize you never took the time to enjoy life when you were living it. Live in the moment and everything will fall into place.

But don't get me wrong, you have to work towards where you want to be. Nothing will ever be handed to you, but if you work for what you want and trust the process, everything will turn out the way it was always supposed to be.

Fist you have to appreciate where you are and where you've been. Relax and enjoy yourself every moment you can. It's important to know your value and to trust yourself. Work for where you want to be and then let the process take you.
