Beginning Spring Quarter As Told By High School Musical

Who doesn't need a little more Zac Efron in their life?

Beginning Spring Quarter As Told By High School Musical

1. Ending winter quarter and ~finally~ getting a break from school. Spring break is here!

After a stressful 10 weeks that comes along with winter quarter, Spring Break is just what you need. Time to relax, hang out with friends, and basically do nothing school related for an entire week. FINALLY.

2. Having to come back from spring break…just as all your semester system friends start theirs.

Having semester system friends is so tough. None of your breaks ever match up, so you get a solid two days with each other- during the weekend your breaks overlap. It feels like right as they are starting to get comfortable at home, you have to pack everything back up and head back up to school. "Come visit me when you start summer almost a month before me!" is often how you two will say goodbye.

3. Getting ready for your first day of new classes like…

You're lying if you say you don't try at least a little bit harder to look nice for the first day of classes. It's the one day of the quarter where you get to feel like you're 12 again- getting ready to impress your classmates and, above all, see who you know or want to meet in all your classes!

4. When the first day of class is super easy but then you go back on Wednesday to a lecture, three assignments, and a quiz next week.

The quarter system is tough. While semester system kids always talk about "Syllabus Week", we get "Syllabus Day"... and that's only if we're really lucky. Let's be honest, 10 week quarters just don't allow for you to waste an entire week doing introductory things. If you get away without being lectured or given an assignment on the first day, you should be in for a nice quarter.

5. FINALLY, week one is over! Your friends ask you if you're going to go out this weekend, and you're just like...

Nothing better than going out with all of your friends to blow off some steam! Even the first week of the quarter is beyond stressful, so getting a short break before having to start it all over on Monday is much needed. Whether "going out" means going to a party, spending time with friends, going to the beach, or even just staying in, you deserve a break from school - even though its only been five days.

6. Finally, realizing this is the final stretch until summer, so the countdown begins.

Who doesn't love summer! While Spring is just as sunny and beautiful, there's still the pain of classes, homework, and exams to put a damper on anyone's day. But with summer right around the corner, it should all turn out just fine! Besides, Spring quarter always goes by super quick...right?

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
