9 Reasons Why You Are "Dying" At The End Of The Semester

Its not just the threat of finals stressing you out. Well, yes, it is mostly finals.

9 Reasons Why You Are "Dying" At The End Of The Semester

It's April. It feels like spring break was just last week, but, alas, finals are fast approaching. You look in the mirror and wonder why you have blue circles under your eyes even though you aren't studying for finals yet. You are procrastinating in any way possible. Here are the real reasons why you are "dying" at the end of the semester.

1. Even your favorite shows remind you of your impending doom.

2. You don't have a crap ton of work for a week in April and you get suspicious that you're forgetting something.

3. You are at such a high level of stress already that everything starts giving you major anxiety.

4. However, finals haven't even started.

5. You still don't have plans for summer, but it's only one month away.

6. You think about all of the work that you have to do and faint from stress.

7. You are trying to put out the fire that taking hard classes, not studying enough, and procrastinating has created.

8. You spend time on the internet, which only reminds you of how hopeless your situation is.

9. Although you are a sweaty, shriveled up pile of nerves that can hardly be considered human, you are pulling off the end of the semester pretty well.

It will be alright. We will get through it (without learning anything from our mistakes) and repeat the entire process next semester.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
