Exam Week As Told By 'The Emperor's New Groove'

Exam Week As Told By 'The Emperor's New Groove'

You threw off my groove!

Movie Plot

It's that time again! Yep, the dreaded exam week. I don't care who you are, exam week is terrible for everyone. The lazy procrastinator and the kid who always came to class, they both struggle, stress, and maybe even cry (I know I do). So to take a break and have a laugh, let's take a look at how Kuzco, Kronk, and our other favorite characters can relate to us through our own traumatic experience.

I don't know about you, but I started off strong this semester. I was getting everything done on time and actually studying for everything. It was a great start. My mom was so proud.

Because of my awesome start this semester, I was pretty confident going into exams. I had this covered. I know this material -- studying will just be a review and all the information will come flooding back into my brain once I look over my notes. It is going to be a breeze to get those good exam grades! I am ready!!

So with my confidence, I sit down to start reviewing my notes. It doesn't take long for my to realize that I might have to study longer, and this is not just going to be a review. My dream of having am easy exam week was crushed.

I am suddenly spending every free moment studying for my exams. I'm camped out at a library cubicle. I spend so much time in the library that I literally do not know if the sun is up or down.

No time for Netflix, friends, sleep, or personal hygiene (you know it's true). I can get a little tense while preparing for exams. I would like to apologize to all those who have felt my wrath.

Hours go by and I realize I should have started studying sooner. The stress! The pressure! It's too much! How could I have been so stupid! Did we even talk about this in class?

When all hope feels lost, I put away all my study material. I slowly walk back to my dorm where my roommate is. I let all of my frustration go in a big mess of tears and screaming and wallowing in self-pity. Everything comes out, even if is not just about school.

Then I get to the exam: So. Much. Material. All the material for all my exams is crammed into my brain, and it's getting difficult to distinguish which classes material is which. Is this from history class or from biology class? Why didn't I drink more coffee? Now that's a valid question.

I really think that professors can smell my fear and anxiety over the exam they placed before me. This exam is their pride and joy. They have made it special. And the professor be like:

All right! The exam is over! I have survived! I'm not really sure how well I did on the exam but the important thing is that I answered all the questions, and I made it out alive.

Then I realize that I'm done for the semester and I can go home and enjoy the summer without studying and stressing!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.
