But don't worry, here are some great tips on how to survive finals from Ned, the star of "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide," the boy who helped us all survive middle school with his crazy antics and encouraging tips.

The first part of finals is the unavoidable "Stressing Out" stage when a teacher says their final will be .... CUMULATIVE. We realize that we retained NOTHING this semester and now need to relearn 5 months worth of information in addition to finishing all of our last minute papers and extra credit assignments that we've put off since January. But no worries, to this Ned says:

1. Do not let stress vision get the best of you because things may not be that bad

2. Grades are important but not the most important thing in life.

Next, you should "Get Organized". This is the time where we look through piles of notes trying to find old study guides, quizzes, tests or really anything that will help us study. When getting organized, Ned suggests:

1. Make a planner and see if you need to do something for school to get something done.

2. Accordion folders rock!

If you are having trouble in a class and looking for someone to explain concepts and help get you on the right track for exams, look for a tutor. You can ask your teachers or classmates who they would recommend or go to a learning center at your school. Some tips are:

1. Don't be afraid to ask for a new tutor if things aren't working out.

2. Don't beat yourself up. If you have a tutor it does not mean you are dumb.

Be sure to start studying early and going to the library so you aren't in the same boat many college kids find themselves in, which means staying up all night cramming information for all their finals. I mean, coffee is a miracle worker but only to a certain extent.

1. If it is loud when you are trying to study, use headphones.

2. Take a week to be a geek.

3. Tell your friends you can talk later and move if they are being loud.

Finally, when it comes to taking the dreaded tests, RELAX and know that you are extremely prepared due to your awesome preparation tips you have received and that you will do great. Plus you're almost done with schoolwork for a while! When taking the tests:

1. Never second guess. Your first answer is probably right.

2. Always have spare pencils!

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."

In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
