The Month Of December For College Girls, As Told By Rachel Green

Holiday stress? Homework overload? *Hair flip*

Rachel Green (AKA Jennifer Aniston) is basically the queen of 90s television.

Though she can be a little over-the-top at times, Rachel taught "Friends" fans what it's like to grow up and navigate ALL the obstacles that a twenty-something will inevitably face.

As a huge fan of the show, I find her to be very relatable...especially when it comes to college life. The biggest feat we are all about to overcome?

The month of December.

December is FINALLY here, which means... CHRISTMAS

You and your friends could NOT be more excited about the colorful lights, holiday tunes, gift-giving, and lots and lots of FUN!


The ONLY thing truly standing in between you and the ~most wonderful time of the year~?

Finals. Week.


Finals mean studying, and studying means stress, and stress means...well...lots and lots of chaos.


You're trying to maintain a positive attitude, but you can't help but react when someone causes you even the slightest inconvenience.


(It's OK, though, because no one can ruin your holiday spirit -- even a final or two).


You're evidently stressed out about finals, and whenever somebody asks you what's wrong, this is your (false) response:


On the inside, you're feeling a little more like this:


What's even worse is when somebody tells you that it's 'just a test' and that you should probably calm down.


Tomorrow is the day of the test that you anticipate to be the hardest... you're not really sure what's happening.


You sit down to take it, and you're doing your very best to maintain your composure. You KNOW your sh*t!


The professor put something on the final that he PROMISED would NOT be on it.


It ended up being (a little) harder than expected, but you studied hard and powered through.


Now onto three more exams... the only things standing in the way of a month-long break and CHRISTMAS!

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
