Finals Week As Told By "Friends"
Huffington Post

It is fairly common knowledge within the college world that finals week is probably the most dreaded time of the year. As it is also very close to Christmas, you may hear the lifeless voice of a college student drearily singing, "It's the most stressful time of the year." Here is a small chuckle for you in the midst of all the tears.

1. When the professor presents an entirely new topic the day before the final.

Of course professors are still going over new information the day before the final. How are we expected to retain all of this?

2. The standard disposition when going to a final.

Are finals really necessary? I mean failing seems like a reasonable alternative.

3. To whoever is responsible for scheduling finals the Friday before break.

One final on Tuesday, two on Wednesday and one on Friday at 3 p.m. You could have gone home Wednesday if it weren't for that one Friday final.

4. When your friends aren't stressing about finals.

Whether they don't have difficult courses or just don't care, that one friend who doesn't panic should be fired.

5. The reaction upon seeing the final exam slide onto your desk. Panic slowly transitions to melting into a puddle on the floor.

The sight of the packet itself is enough to make a grown man cry. I would rather cry on the floor and fail the exam than attempt to complete it.

6. When literally everything is due right after Thanksgiving, because finals.

Checking your planner to see what is due when you return from Thanksgiving break and realizing very quickly that every assignment and its mother is due the day classes resume.

7. You have resigned yourself to the inevitable, finals cannot and will never go well.

It's fine. Everything is fine.

8. Stress eating.

Finals week is the prime time to eat all of the comfort foods. (And drink all of the coffee.)

9. Correcting everyone because studying for an ungodly number of hours tends to make one feel as if they know everything.

On top of being irritable due to sleep deprivation, everyone is 5x more arrogantly knowledgeable than usual.

10. When all of your friends have finished their finals and you have two more.

Okay, so basically we all agree that finals week is worse than jumping out of a plane with a malfunctioning parachute. In light of this, I wish you all the best of luck. Hydrate, eat a nutritious diet and don't stay up all night studying.

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.

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.
