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 Teacher Who Was So Much More

Thank you for everything

I think it's fair to say that most people remember at least one teacher who had a lasting impact on them. I have been incredibly lucky to have several teachers who I will never forget, but one individual takes the cake. So here's to you: thank you for all you have done.

Thank you for teaching me lessons not just in the textbook.

Although you taught a great lecture, class was never just limited to the contents of the course. Debates and somewhat heated conversations would arise between classmates over politics and course material, and you always encouraged open discussion. You embraced the idea of always having an opinion, and always making it be heard, because why waste your voice? You taught me to fight for things I believed in, and to hold my ground in an argument. You taught me to always think of others before doing and speaking. You showed me the power of kindness. Thank you for all the important lessons that may not have been included in the curriculum.

Thank you for believing in me.

Especially in my senior year, you believed in me when other teachers didn't. You showed me just what I could accomplish with a positive and strong attitude. Your unwavering support kept me going, especially when I melted into a puddle of tears weekly in your office. You listened to my stupid complaints, understood my overwhelming stress-induced breakdowns, and told me it was going to be okay. Thank you for always being there for me.

Thank you for inspiring me.

You are the epitome of a role model. Not only are you intelligent and respected, but you have a heart of gold and emit beautiful light where ever you go. You showed me that service to others should not be looked at as a chore, but something to enjoy and find yourself in. And I have found myself in giving back to people, thanks to your spark. Thank you for showing me, and so many students, just how incredible one person can be.

Thank you for changing my life.

Without you, I truly would not be where I am today. As cliche as it sounds, you had such a remarkable impact on me and my outlook on life. Just about a year has passed since my graduation, and I'm grateful to still keep in touch. I hope you understand the impact you have made on me, and on so many other students. You are amazing, and I thank you for all you have done.

Five Tips to Get on Top of Your 2019: Tech Editions

Yeah, there's an app for that.


Technology is the course of the future, why not use it to get on top of your new year? Make 2019 the year you stop sleeping on these great productivity apps and get grinding! Best part, all the apps I've included here are free.

Google Calendar.

Look at that beauty.

I LOVE Google Calendar! Not only is it a great tool to map out your week, it comes with cool features. You can color code tasks and events, get text reminders and so much more. You can even sync your calendar with other people's (this is very helpful for roommates or study buddies).

Google Doc File Folders


Sick of that long list of documents in your Google Docs? You can make file folders to organize all of your docs!

Momentum Chrome Extension

This is by far my favorite productivity app. It's a Chrome extension that acts as a home page whenever you open a new window or tab. It comes complete with the weather, a motivational quote and a to-do list! The best feature is their "main focus for the day". It keeps you grounded for sure- especially when it pops up with every tab and forces you to think about all you need to accomplish.


This is a to-do list on steroids- definitely worth checking out!


A to-do list app for your phone! I love this just to organize what my top priorities are.
