10 Strong Feelings Every College Student Has Going From Finals To Christmas, As Told By 'New Girl'

Or just the holiday break in general.

10 Strong Feelings Every College Student Has Going From Finals To Christmas, As Told By 'New Girl'

The transition from finals to home is crazy. There's a lot of emotions and things your family, and yourself, just aren't ready for.

If you need to prepare for it, here's what you might need to be prepared for, as perfectly told by "New Girl."

Somehow I'm still stressed 

Ever feel like you still need to study or do something even after you finish a class?? Currently in a constant state of stress and anxiety.

Confused on what to do now

After I realize I'm finished studying and finals have finished, I have no clue what to do next. Like should I read, start a new show, take up a hobby?

Super bored 

None of these options seem good and obviously the best option is to eat...everything.

Overjoyed to be finished 

A moment of joy occurs as you realize another semester is complete!

Realizing it's Christmas 

Oh no, finals just ended so now Christmas began and I'm missing all of it.

I can finally sleep 

*Realizes sleep can now be an option* (if I choose).

I might need a drink or two 

Hmm, I just realized I may need a drink in the alcohol variety, due to the fact that I'm still bored and stressed over the semester that just concluded.

You probably start preparing your speeches about your future for your family

Ah yay, holidays in which we can explain why X, Y, and Z didn't go as planned and prove that we didn't fail, this is all a part of the plan. This part certainly keeps life interesting.

Watching TV is EVERYTHING 

Now is the time to finally watch all the shows you missed! Or you can finally rewatch an old favorite. Or just watch something because you didn't for a decent amount of time.

 Family doesn't understand the new college habits 

Many of us take our college lives home with us. For example, your family might not be as okay with your new sense of style...or lack of style, depending on how you look at it. Like why can't I go out in public in my pajamas? NO ONE CARES AT SCHOOL.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
