20 GIFs That Explain The Feels Of A New Semester ​

I thought the last semester was supposed to be the easiest?

20 GIFs That Explain The Feels Of A New Semester ​

I have officially gone through all of my syllabi for the spring semester, and in case no one has said it yet, I am stressed. I am taking 18 hours, five classes, one six-hour intensive Spanish class, and an extensive reading list. While being so incredibly overwhelmed by this semester's workload, I am simultaneously just as excited about it.

I have a new mindset going forward to not expect anything specific but to just put my best into each class. I have very interesting classes on my schedule- Juvenile Delinquency, Urban Sociology, Introduction to Law, Psychological Research Methods, and as I mentioned previously.. a six-hour intensive Spanish class. In all of my undergraduate experience, I have never had a midterm test nor a paper to write (except in writing comp and in my last research methods class at UAB), but here we are with a midterm test in ALL of my classes and at least one long paper in ALL of my classes. Nonetheless, this semester has such a bright light at the end- GRADUATION!

I just felt that it would be appropriate to spotlight some of the emotions students might be feeling regardless of what point they are at in their academic career. After all, we are getting one step closer to the ultimate goal!

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
