8 Things Every Second Semester Senior Relates To

8 thoughts we all have as we go through our final days of college.


Final semesters of school are exciting, scary, and rewarding. It is a time of transition into a professional life and a point of finality for our formal education. If you have already graduated or are scheduled to graduate in May, I’m sure you can relate to these thoughts I have listed below.

1. You mean I’m not done with classes yet?

Look, I’ve already sat through seven semesters of lectures, numerous study sessions, and way too many discussions. Can’t this semester just be like a “bye semester” and I’ll see y’all at graduation?

2. Wait, I have to get a job?

It's actually time for me to go dress up in a suit and interview for a real grown-up job? Are you sure I'm ready for that? Because I'm pretty sure I'm not ready for that.

3. So I only have one more semester left of wearing leggings every day?

I don't wanna grow up. I don't wanna.

4. ­Cover letters take precedence wayyyyy over that 10 page paper due in your capstone course.

I get that the paper is for a grade. But this cover letter is for money. You do the math.

5. Senioritis in high school was bad. Senioritis in college is ridiculous.

There are days where the biggest accomplishment you had was putting on real pants. Why would I be motivated for class when I have to be a REAL ADULT in three and a half months?


Unless you're a very lucky person and have had a job lined up since last semester, this thought probably runs through your head at least five times a day. If I don't know where I am going to be working, how do I go about deciding where to live?

7. You pity those poor high school kids touring your campus.


8. But then you see that first job offer…

And you realize all the tears, all-nighters, ridiculous group projects, and all of those crazy stressful finals weeks were all worth it. And you might actually miss this place after all.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Now that college is around the corner for most if not all young adults, students once shook by a pandemic now have to shift their focus on achieving their career goals.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
