1. There are all kinds of assignments.

In April it feels like the professors all conspired and decided to give LITERALLY every assignment in the last month. Every college student is losing their minds at this point.

2. Sickness is at an all time high.

Literally these last couple of weeks I feel like I was hit by a train. The stress and lack of sleep hits many college students in an unfortunate way at this point. Many of us are sick and feel like we are dying.

3. Patience is extremely thin.

If college students are quickly losing their tempers with you lately, don't take it to heart. Around this time we all just have very low patience. As a result, we get angry quicker and may be a little more aggressive in our words/actions.

4. Everyone is losing focus.

I literally feel like I have two brain cells left. My brain is fried. However, we are still fighting to make ourselves stay focused and finish strong.

5. Feelings of being a college drop out.

If you are a college student and you have not had this feeling yet, please tell me your secrets? I have had so much apathy towards college this past month. I have thought C's get degrees and would it really hurt if I dropped out? I mean I know and everyone else knows I'm not going to, but it still crosses my mind.. frequently.

6. Realizing finals week is approaching.

Finals week is coming.. fast. If you're like me, you are not prepared. Also, should probably get to studying! But we all know that me being me will wait until the last minute. (Don't be like me)

7. What finals week feels like.

Finals week is the week of mostly death and destruction to your well-being and for some people GPA. It is stressful. We all are just calculating our grades to see that hopefully we only need a low/average score on our finals to keep our grades. Whether it be tears of misery or tears of relief, there is an intense amount of crying this week.

8. Saying goodbye to all of your friends.

As much as I want to go home, I really will miss all my friends I have made this year. I know I will see them next semester, but I am going to miss seeing them on a daily basis or even every day. Especially because I might not seem some of them at all this summer.

9. Finally going home.

Finally we all get to go home. Now we can take a load off of our shoulders and enjoy our families for the summer. Which will hopefully recharge us for next semester!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
