11 Capybara Gifs That Are Sure To Get You Over The Semester And Right Into The Summer Spirit

You know, the capybara—the largest living rodent in the world. Duh.

11 Capybara Gifs That Are Sure To Get You Over The Semester And Right Into The Summer Spirit

Recently, my friends and I decided that we would all assign each other animals that represented us well. While one of my friends was deemed the adorable red panda and another was labeled a cute little chipmunk, I was granted the capybara (pronounced cap-uh-bar-uh). Clearly, it's because I resemble a large rodent.

I was offended at first, but capybaras are actually really cute. And chill. And just generally relatable. To celebrate my new identity and the long-awaited end of the semester, here are 11 gifs that will make you realize you're pretty much a capybara, too.

1. The Packhorse Capybara


When you (and maybe ONE other person in your group) have been carrying all of your good-for-nothing classmates in group projects all semester.

2. The Höngry Capybara


When you're stress eating because of final exams and final research papers and move-out and everything else that the end of the semester brings.

3. The Am-I-Dead-Yet Capybara


When your professor walks all over you for four months and then does that final check to see if their 1,000,000 assignments and ridiculous grading scale have killed you yet (but you lived!).

4. The Done Capybara


When you take that last dorm shower of the semester and think about just how many questions you got wrong on your finals, but you don't cry cause at least you're done now.

5. The Impatient Capybara


When you're waiting on your professors to release your grades and they just. aren't. doing it.

6. The Loved and Appreciated Capybara


When you're finally settling back in at home and your family and hometown friends shower you with love and support.

7. The Calm Capybara


When you can finally soak in the tub at home and not think about equations or research paper citation guidelines or your future or anything tedious like that.

8. The Happy Capybara


When you can finally spend time with your pets after months of regularly being separated.

9. The Taking-A-Dip Capybara


When you can shed your backpack and walking shoes and relax in the pool until you've gone full prune.

10. The Popsicle Capybara


When you can finally start your detox from dining hall food by consuming an exclusive diet of popsicles, poolside sandwiches, and summer cookout delicacies.

11. The Restful Capybara


When it's been a long semester and you've earned these months of rest and relaxation, so you just stay in bed and sleep.

It's been a long semester, fellow kids, so let yourself get some well-earned rest over the next few months. As the eighth graders say, HAGS!

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
