20 Tiny Things That Make LSU Students Literally Jump For Joy

As a senior at Louisiana State University, I have endured three years of studying all night, failing a class and being unsure of what I want to do with my life, but I can also say I have experienced a lot of good things too. Just being privileged enough to attend college is definitely one of those good things, but there are many other, some small, good things that have leveled out some of the struggles of being a student. Here are just a few:

1. Canceled classes

Whether you were binge-watching "Game of Thrones," or frantically trying to finish your homework before class, little compares to the feeling of getting an email from your professor saying class is canceled.

2. Quizlet having all the answers to your schoolwork

Shoutout to Quizlet for being the OG and always pulling through. Honestly, whoever created this magnificent website is the reason I am the woman I am today (a future college graduate).

3. Finding a parking spot in under 5 minutes

^ my face when someone leaving gives me their parking spot.

I KNOW all my LSU people understand me on this one.

4. Extended deadlines

^ when the professor pushes back the due date on a project because he knows my lazy ass hasn't even started.

5. Making an A on an exam you should've failed

This is how I know miracles exist.

6. Taking a nap after taking an exam

This is literally when I get the best sleep of my life.

7. Finally getting to eat after being on campus all day

I mean, my campus has food, I'm just broke.

8. Waking up and not being exhausted

Personally, this is a very rare feeling, but a very appreciated one as well.

9. Making a new friend in class

Especially when you didn't know anyone in the class to begin with.

10. Going out and seeing your class friends

11. When the syllabus says "no textbook required"

My wallet thanks you.

12. Extra credit

^me busting into my professors' offices trying to get last minute extra credit.

13. When the professor curves the exam

I want to thank not only God but also Jesus.

14. Getting free things

Whether it's food or a t-shirt promoting a bar, I'm game.

15. Online exams

Idk why, but online exams are just 100,000% better than taking an exam in a huge auditorium.

16. Turning an assignment in early

This is also a very rare feeling, but knowing you're ahead of the game and actually being productive has its perks.

17. Seeing a dog on campus

They're so innocent and completely unaware of the terrors college brings. And they're the best things in the world.

18. Getting into all the classes you wanted

Scheduling is a b*tch, but when it all works out it's the best feeling.

19. Taking a class that actually relates to your future career

You'd think this feeling wouldn't be as rare as it is, but it's college.

20. Turning in your last final before break

^ it really be that way.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
