The Last 2 Weeks Of Your Fall Semester, As Told By 'Psych'

The Last 2 Weeks Of Your Fall Semester, As Told By 'Psych'

Wait for it. Wait for iiiiit...finals are almost here!


Christmas is coming, and it's the most wonderful time of the year...for some people, anyway.

For us college students, the end of the semester is rapidly approaching, which means we have tons of work to finish up between now and then. And it doesn't end there, either! After that, we have an entire week of final exams, meaning it's the time to hunker down and study, among other things (i.e. cry).

Everyone needs a laugh around this time, so here are some relatable situations you'll find yourself in during these last few weeks, as told by your favorite fake psychic and his partner.

You have a million things to do and don't know where to start, so instead you just do nothing.

We've all been there. Prioritizing is challenging, and sometimes procrastination causes you to dig yourself into a hole. It's tough to get out of that place, and to compensate for your jam-packed day of doing nothing, you chug a caffeinated beverage and get shit done. You tell yourself you'll learn from your mistakes, but it's quite probable that you'll do it all over again next semester.

The moment you realize there's too much to do and too little time.

Honestly, no explanation needed here. I don't care how diligent a student you are, everyone has found themselves here at one time or another during their college career. Occupied binging TV shows and indulging in other time wasters, you failed to account for how much time that paper, project, or study session would take to complete, and now you're screwed! Whoops! Cue the mental breakdown!


You know the feeling. You've got a paper, a project, and two exams scheduled during the same week. You've had plenty of time to study and work on those assignments, but at the time, watching Netflix and eating Funyuns seemed much more appealing. Sigh...better grab some more coffee.

You and your friend are studying, but you get hungry. And perhaps a bit distracted.


Nobody feels like heading out to the dining hall around finals week, and every once in a while, you need a break from studying. Fast food hits the spot after a grueling study session. What harm can a midnight taco run do, besides hurt your wallet and long-term health?

The professor assigns an unreasonably large workload.

There's one insane professor in everyone's schedule. This professor expects you and your classmates to bang out two papers, a project, and an exam in two short weeks. You're only human beings, but apparently they've forgotten that. They're probably too busy hiding out in their lair, plotting ways to make all of you more miserable.

You're messing around, so your friends yell at you to study.

If your friends keep you in check about completing your assignments on time, nag you about studying, and look out for you, those are some good quality friends. Don't let them go, and appreciate what they do for you. And if you are that friend, kudos to you.

Helping your buddies through their inevitable mental breakdowns.

You'll get through it together.

College is a rough time for everyone, and when finals roll around, everyone's stress levels double. As long as you've got a support system and some determination, you'll be fine. Work hard, take care of yourself, and ace those finals!

You pass your finals!

There's no better feeling than when all that stress and hard work pays off, and you do well on your final exams. It's not for nothing, and what you put into it is what you'll get out of it. Not to mention, celebrating afterwards is the best feeling in the whole world!

Good luck to all the college students out there during the last few weeks of the semester! Stick it out and don't give up, because it's worth it.

If College Majors Were Flowers

Can you really disagree?

There is a seemingly new trend of "If College Majors Were ___" circulating on Odyssey. I must admit, they're all pretty accurate and fun to read. So find your major on this list and share with your friends to let them know what flower you are based on your college major!

All the majors - a dead flower.

Let's be honest, as college students we're all dead on the inside.

4 Things I Enjoyed As A Kid That I Still Enjoy Today

I am definitely still a kid at my heart and deep in my soul.


I become more and more like my younger self around the holidays and winter season. I think it's because of the cozy weather and the memories from school. It also helps that I moved back to my hometown and that my friends have started arriving, back for their month-long vacations.

What really brought me to writing this was the recent purchasing of dinosaur nuggets -- something that made my heart soar after years. Sure, I ate chicken nuggets when I was growing up, but I hadn't really been recent. So when I went to my friendly neighborhood Safeway to get my normal Adult™ groceries I made the radical decision to get these, too.

1. Dino Chicken Nuggets


Like I already said, dino chicken nuggets (in particular) were my favorite kind of chicken nugget. I loved the shapes (obviously) and they actually taste better than regularly shaped nuggets. It's kind of like how curly fries just taste better than any other kind of fry. It's a fact.

2. Online Flash Games


I had quite the number of open tabs when it came to online flash games. When I think of those games, my mind first darts to, Disney Channel online, and definitely Cartoon Network online games. I had my favorite games that I would play almost every single day, or at least when I had finished my homework.

Mostly for the nostalgic feels, I still go back to these games when I'm bored and want something to do. The most random, but the favorite game that I loved? The climbing and swinging levels-based game on Cartoon Network online about the show "My Gym Partner's a Monkey!"

3. Coloring Books


Coloring books with pencils, markers, and crayons are still extremely relaxing and satisfying. I am so glad that they came back in style as gifts, especially the themed ones. One of the most recent best presents that I have relieved was a birthday gift from my roommate. She gave me a Harry Potter-themed coloring book and I am so thankful for it. I used to be terrified of coloring outside of the lines when I didn't have the skill to do otherwise. So, I can actually say that I enjoy these more now that I am an adult with both the skill to color and the relaxation to not care as much if I mess up.

4. Reading in my special spot


My girl Elliot (above) has the right idea about cuddling in with a good hot drink and quality book. I already read a crazy amount on a major basis. However, the best way to read is the way I used to do it when I was a kid. In reality, I actually had the time to read the way I did when I was younger, but I still love to.

I would grab my book and some hot water or juice, and sit on my bed with the window facing the mountains. I didn't even recognize the absence of anything related to Tumblr because I already got it in my own room.

What do you still love from your childhood that you have kept doing even while getting older?

Frankly, I am just waiting for winter break to get started, but I still wish all of you good luck right before your exams! You're so close to the finish line! Happy holidays and I hope you have a relaxing vacation.
