Finals Week As Told By 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer'

I'm getting the major "heebie geebies" over here!

Finals Week As Told By 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer'

Here we are guys—the battle of our lives (aka finals). I don't know about anyone else but the fact that finals week is upon us is giving me the major "heebie geebies" and me and my scooby gang are filled with terror in the packed library and AC. But who better to ease our feelings of stress about our on-going battle than the best fighter I know: Buffy Summers. While she will be slaying vampires we will be slaying finals!

Your professors says the exam is cumulative

You're meaning to tell me that this entire semester I was supposed to retain information? How do you expect me to remember everything that has happened in class this semester and not just the things we did the last week of classes?

Halfway through the week when spirits are low

I think we all know the sleep deprived, junk food-filled, information-full point of the week where you just want to give up and close your books.

You've been in the library for 14 hours straight studying the same thing

How long have I been staring at this same page? Am I absorbing the information? If I fall asleep on this book will it just make its way into my head?

Your paper is supposed to be four pages instead of three, but you've given up on caring

We have way too much going on to care about your page length!

Your hardest final is over

Doesn't make the week easier, but it is a great moment.

Having to study on your day off

There it is, your one perfect day. No exams. Nothing to do. You can just sle—nope! How about you start cramming for another exam.

Friends trying to be encouraging about your exams

Your professor has already graded your exam before the week is over

How is it that it has taken you 14 weeks to grade an exam before, but now on the biggest exam of the semester you have it done the moment I walk out of the room?

Finding out it is a take-home exam

Leaving your hardest exam

Not being able to spend anytime with your friends during the end of the semester

Sure you might all be craming in the same room together, but what about all the memories we are supposed to be making? This is the last time we'll see eachother for three months and it's spent focusing on books, what a shame.

Not being able to party the last weekend of the year

People breaking the quiet rule

How dare you make noise while I'm cramming for my calc final! I would never...

Breaking the quiet hour...

Hey, we all make mistakes, right? I'm sorry, just please don't call Public Safety.

Realizing that not taking notes or paying attention in class has actually screwed you over

Eating free cereal at 11 p.m. before finals is all I've needed in my life.

People you've never seen before taking up all of the classrooms in the AC and the library

Who are you?

Saying goodbye to everyone

Being able to start summer

Finally, summer can begin and I can get tan and shop, and think about how much I can't wait to come back to school and do it all over again with my friends.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
