Finals As Described By Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift can describe any emotion.

Finals As Described By Taylor Swift

A lot of people say she's overrated, but Taylor Swift has a way of describing each piece of a girls life better than anyone else. Let's face it, you're lying if you never jammed in your hairbrush microphone to, You Belong with Me, or cried about your middle school heartbreak as you listened to Fifteen.

You want songs about revenge, falling in love, or girl power? T-Swift has you covered. But, if none of those interest or relate to you, Taylor's lyrics can also depict your exam routines and feelings by your average college student.

Don't believe me? Read on...

1. "Begin Again"

"I've been spending the last eight months thinking all love ever does is break, and burn, and end. But on a Wednesday in a café I watched it begin again."

The semester is almost over which means... here comes finals! You have one test left to secure your grade. You check out and calculate your grade. You look at this as a new beginning-- the past couple months won't keep you down. You're motivated more than ever and you will pass this class and bump that GPA up!

2. "Blank Space"

"So it's gonna be forever, or it's gonna go down in flames.
You can tell me when it's over if the high was worth the pain."

</span>Either your classes are going to be forever something you look back at, or it's going to be a class you never want to speak of again. So, was taking that difficult class worth it? The beginning of the semester causes you to look towards the rest of the semester in a hopeful manner. Only will you know at the end if it was worth taking all those classes.</cite> </p></h1> <h1>3. Back to December</h1> <p><strong>"I'd go back in time and change it but I can't..."</strong> </p> <p><cite> <iframe width="500" height="281" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""> It's the day before your final and you're about to have your seventh mental breakdown of the hour. You reminisce back to the first semester; When you barely studied and went out every dollar night, free cover night and weekend night. You wish you could go "back to December" and change it how seriously you took your classes but... you can't.

3. "22"

"We're happy free confused and lonely at the same time. It's miserable and magical, oh yeah. Tonight's the night when we forget about the deadlines, it's time."

Your reminiscing turns to you throwing your homework to the side and going out with your friends. The miserable part of college is the stress of homework and deadlines, but the magical part is you can choose to quit whenever you want-- you're in charge. You'll only go out for a little while, right?

4. "Ours"

"So don't you worry your pretty little mind. People throw rocks at things that shine..."

As you take your 6th shot of the night, you feel on top of the world. Going out seems like the greatest decision of your life and, at this moment, you regret NOTHING.

5. "New Romantics"

"We are too busy dancing to get knocked off our feet."

You make your way to the bathroom and meet the nicest girls. You find out they, too, have a huge exam at 9 a.m. What are the odds, right?? You guys make friends and find yourself dancing way through the night, waaaaay later than you anticipated.

6. "Should've Said No"

"You should've said no, you should've gone home. You should've thought twice before you let it all go."

The next morning you wake up with a throbbing headache and regret everything. You should have gone to bed and woke up early to study. Hopefully, your friends know what they're doing and you can get some hints from them. You should've just said no, but going out just sounded so nice.

7. "Haunted"

"Come on, come on, don't leave me like this. I thought I had you figured out. Something's gone terribly wrong. You're all I wanted."

Now you're in your 1000-person lecture hall. You get halfway through your test and have only copied half of the answers from the kid with curly hair in front of you. Suddenly, he gets up to turn in his test, but you haven't finished coping down #'s 58-80. You say a quick prayer and make a pretty design on your bubble sheet.

8. "Mean"

"You can take me down with just one single blow. But you don't know what you don't know."

You walk out of the lecture pissed. Not only at yourself for going out, but at the professor for scheduling a test on a Friday, even though the prof knows Thursday is free-cover and half-price drinks at the bars. Your teacher thinks he's got you, but you're counting on your sheer, blind luck to pull this one through.

9. "Dear John"

"Maybe it's me and my blind optimism to blame."

A few days pass and you've tried your hardest to foget your nightmare final. A notification pops up saying your final has been graded. You hold your breath and peek through your fingers as you open the notification up. There's no way it could be that bad, right?

10. "Shake It Off"

"'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off."

Whether you bombed that exam with a 57%, or soared through it with a 97%, you can 'shake it off' because YOU'RE DONE!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
