20 Thoughts Every Junior In College Is Having This Time Of Year

Juniors in college, I feel your end of the spring semester pain. It's the last couple of weeks of the semester, and you've just about had it with every assignment, group project, and as*hole professor you absolutely cannot stand. We are getting a little too old for this routine now, right?

If we can only last just a few short weeks, we'll officially be seniors! Who would've thought we would make it this far this fast?

Although senior year is quickly approaching, we still have the rest of our junior year to finish off strong before a year of easy classes and endless tears thinking of leaving behind our college best friends. Very exciting stuff is happening very fast, but here is how we are all pretty much feeling at this point in our college careers...

1. "Can we just get our degrees already?"

2. "If I have to write one more essay this semester..."

3. "How do I still need more Gen Ed's? I thought I took all of those freshman year..."

4. "I cannot wait for my new house next year, we have a cute porch and everything"

5. "I am so beyond done with parking at this school, I don't understand why there aren't enough spots for everyone"

6. "If I have to take another class with this f*cking professor"

7. "Confused why I need to take a science class when I am a Communication and Media Major"

8. "I don't know how much longer I can take these rude kids in my classes"

9. "If I spend another dollar at the bar on a  Thursday night I don't know what I'll do with myself"

10. "I have never been so broke in my life"

11. "I feel like an actual adult with all these bills I need to pay, when did this happen?"

12. "I can't believe this time next year I'll be ready to graduate..."

13. "Wait...what if I don't get an actual job offer this time next year..."

14. "How am I supposed to go the entire summer without living with my best friends?"

15. "I wonder if my hometown bars are as fun as college ones"

16. "The day I stop having to pay for my own laundry will be the best day of my life"

17. "I'm about to enter the real world in about a year and I still can't cook a normal adult dinner"

18. "I'm so nervous for my new internship this summer"

19. "I miss my dogs like crazy, maybe its time for me to go back home"

20. "I absolutely WILL NOT miss paying for my own groceries every week"

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
