10 Feelings You, A Stressed College Student, Have With Only A Few Weeks Left In The Semester

You were good and flying through the semester, but now it's that point where you just feel like you can't do it anymore. Your energy is running low and you've had a cold for a while now. It's fine you're fine you can make it through. Only a couple more weeks right?

1. I think I've been sick for three weeks.

It will go away, it's just a cold right? Maybe, maybe not, but it will go away.

2. I have five test, three papers and I think I've gotten some sleep.

Somehow, someway you get it all done. You're not really sure how, but you do it.

3. *Looks at planner, closes planner, starts to cry*

You love to write everything down so you can cross it off as you go, but sometimes that's just a little overwhelming.

4. I don't think I have it in me to power walk to this class anymore.

You've been power walking like a champ since August to make it in time to your classes when they're halfway across campus, but now you just don't have it in you anymore.

5. My notebook is running out of paper and I'm running out of energy.

At least you and your notebook are on the same page.

6. The big bold word Final Exam is getting closer each time you look at your Syllabus.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Good thing it's almost over, bad thing is you have little time to get your grade up?

7. You're not in the mood to cook anymore. 

Everything that seemed good to you at the beginning of the semester has become old news, you're just ready for your mom's home cooking.

8. The weeks seem long and slow. 

Is it Friday yet? You ask this to yourself when it's only Monday morning.

9. It's starting to take you 10 times longer to do anything.

Your motivation and attention span are low, you want to be done with your homework, but going on your phone seems so much more interesting.

10. You might just need some TLC from your parents.

You've been fine all semester till now, so you might send a text asking your parents to come up for the weekend. You just want someone to take you out to dinner and take you grocery shopping.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
