10 Signs It's The End Of The Semester That Are So Clear You Can't Tell If It's Water Or Vodka

10 Signs It's The End Of The Semester That Are So Clear You Can't Tell If It's Water Or Vodka

The end is coming.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is that time of the semester again: the end. Take deep breaths because we are all in this together. Call your moms, kiss your dogs, because the next two weeks are going to be a wild ride of essays, projects, presentations, and exams.

1. You’re in 4 classes but have 7 classes worth of work due

“It’s not due until April.” Well, honey, its April and the work snowball is tumbling down and is going to knock us all out.

2. People are doing homework outside

The campus is heavily populated with students on the lawns doing their homework. You do not realize how many actually go to your school until this happens. So you are pushing a shoving through the crowd of people who are doing cartwheels and playing frisbee on the quad to get the library.

3. Sweatpants and t-shirts are the outfits for the month

If you wear anything else, you are a superhero. Some people may stare at you for wearing that hoodie for the third day in a row but who really cares? For me, the balance triangle holds sleep, work, appearance. You cannot have all three.

4. Bars fill up

If you are the lucky one that got all their work done prior, or you can just balance your work better than others, then cheers to you; since you get to go out and have some fun.

5. You have to meet up with your group for the project

Yea the project that you were supposed to do all semester; it is due next week. Has anyone worked on it? Yea did not think so. Well, your group-mates are going to be with you the whole time

6. Professors start to cancel class more and more

College students are not the only one that wants the summer fever. Some professors will be tired of the class and either hold class outside or cancel it altogether. They secretly want the semester to be over as well.

7.You begin to take home some of your stuff on the weekends

Personally advise this, instead of taking EVERYTHING home with you on move-out day. Take all your winter stuff with you at the end of April/beginning of May and you will totally thank yourself later.

8.You feel the anxiety of finals

Two weeks, there are two weeks until finals and you have learned nothing!

9. One coffee is NOT enough

One coffee is just the base of the endless about of cups that will be chilling on your desk at 2 am when your writing that paper you probably could have started in March.

10. You have “the talk” with your professor about your grade in the class

Even though it's too late to drop the class. You might have talked to your professor about how you could take the class again or mentally prepare yourself for the mark you are about to get. Unfortunately, mom cannot help you on this one.

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.


So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Don't Be Afraid of Changing Your College Plan

It really isn't THAT bad...


I can't claim to have any deep wisdom on life, but I at least have some good experience with a highly turbulent college career. I started as a game design major in a tech college in Rochester, NY, transferred to a college in Texas, and now I'm an English major at CofC.

My college life has been something of a roller coaster.

But I regret none of it. Maybe it would have been easier to stick to the track I was on initially, but I would never have been fully satisfied with it. Now I've finally found my place and, even though it may have taken a lot of shifting around, it was undoubtedly worthwhile.

I don't mean to say that everyone who is slightly dissatisfied with their major should transfer all over the country and change their major(I had to sacrifice the ability to get a minor because of the path I took, so I wouldn't recommend it to most people). I just believe that if you find yourself not liking the classes that are vital to your major or if you can't find a place at your current college, then changing your major or transferring isn't as horrible as you might imagine.

When I started college I was completely confident in what I wanted to do and what my future would look like. I thought it would be ridiculous for someone to stray from their initial path. That idea led to me deciding to transfer later than was smart.

I think everyone should know that having to change your plans for the future, sometimes in dramatic ways, isn't a bad thing. No matter how scary transferring and changing majors can seem, many people have done it before you and many will after, you aren't alone.
