11 Cute Animals To Get You Through Finals Week

Ah finals week... the most stressful week of any student's career. They can make or break your semester, will keep you awake and locked in the library all week, etc. We all know finals week is scary, but you know what isn't scary? Baby animals! So here are some fun and adorable facts about baby animals that will turn your "I am so stressed out, I am going to die!!!" face into a happy face. So set aside your calculus book for a few minutes and learn about something you truly care about (cute animals) relax for a few minutes, you deserve it.

1. Cats will nudge you with their heads to let you know that they trust you. This kitten cannot nudge you (because it is just a photo), but if it could, it would nudge you to let you know that it trusts your academic abilities!

2. A Grizzly Bear's name comes from the word "grizzled" which means "streaked with gray". Grizzly bears may have gray hair, but you shouldn't; don't forget to relax this week in order to avoid graying hair.

3. A small town in Peru holds an annual Guinea Pig Festival which has a costume competition. Maybe after you get your degree and get a super awesome, well-paying job, you can take a trip to Peru and check it out!

4. When dogs are "play" fighting, they'll sneeze to let the other dogs know that they're just having playig around. Do not be afraid to play around a little in between study sessions.

5. Gray squirrels will bury their nuts all around, and often forget where they stored them, thus planting new trees. Like the gray squirrels, if you forget the answer to a question or two on your final, life will go on. Who knows, maybe that forgotten question will help your tree of knowledge grow in the future!

6. When a rabbit is happy, it will do a jump in the air where it twists it's body called a "binky". Don't forget to jump for joy when you finish a final, no matter how it went.

7. Red panda's use their tails for balance, and as a blanket. You can add balance to your life during the week by curling up with a blanket and watching a movie to relax.

8. Baby elephants will suck their own trunks for comfort like human babies suck their thumbs. Comfort is extremely important while studying, so make sure you do it in a relaxed environment in comfy clothes, with as few distractions around as possible. Having a drink and a small snack on hand isn't a bad idea either.

9. A giraffe can walk within an hour of its birth. With hard work and focus, you too can do incredible things in an hour (like write an essay).

10. Koalas are about the size of a jellybean when they are born. Remember to be like a koala, and get some sleep when you aren't studying.

11. Meerkats work together when raising and teaching their pups. Working and studying with other people is a great way to have fun while learning, and can ease some of the stress you'll have from finals.

While studying is certainly not as fun as learning about cute animals, just remember that after finals week, you can see your cute pets over winter break! And if you don't have any pets, treat yourself and buy an adorable stuffed animal to keep on your desk and be your study buddy, you deserve it.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
