Finals Through The Eyes Of Michelle Tanner

Get ready folks, because the dreaded week is fast approaching.

Finals Through The Eyes Of Michelle Tanner

Despite knowing that classes will end extremely soon, preparing for finals week can make you feel as though you'll never make it to the warmth of summer. Imagining yourself post-finals feels like imagining a fictional character, as actually surviving the next few weeks may feel too impossible to be real.

Don't worry, you're not alone. All of us have, do, and will continue to feel the stress of finals week until we all reach that joyous day of graduation. Until then, however, we all go through (just about) the same emotions during finals week. Let's see how Michelle Tanner from "Full House" perfectly depicts the week we are all dreading.

Sunday: Denial

This is the best time to catch up on all of the TV shows you've forgotten about, respond to your emails, call your dad and do basically everything except what your planner is telling you to do. Just ignore it. We all know what's coming, but that's for future you to deal with, right? Ignorance is bliss.

Monday: Let the cramming commence

Let's just say we've all put off working on four essays, two presentations and studying for three exams until the absolute last minute. The cruelty of reality has to be realized at some point. Goodbye sleep and happiness.

Tuesday: Careful calculations and acceptance of your inevitable failure

"What's the point in taking this exam tomorrow? I know I'm going to get at best a C- , which puts my grade at a D. I haven't participated all semester, so I can't rely on that... I'll just drop out, I'm sure Starbucks is hiring. I might as well give up and work on my resume instead. If I sell all of my textbooks, my graphing calculator and my five-pound bag of coffee, I'll have enough money to pay for the gas to drive home... Mom misses me anyways."

Wednesday: The halfway point

You haven't slept in three days and you still have two or three days to go. You haven't showered in about a week, and you're hangry. Just try not to run into anyone you know on your way to and from the library (if you're lucky enough to even leave).

Thursday: Just trying to keep it together

You've run out of study snacks, meal points and motivation. The end is so close. You've taken an exam in what feels like more classes than you're registered in, yet you somehow still have more to do. Why does anyone willingly go to college?

Friday: What's done is done

Finally, freedom. You worked so hard to keep your grades up all semester and very likely shattered all of that work this week, but you feel unruffled. Finals are in the past, and you literally could not care less.

Sweet, sweet freedom

Time to ignore responsibility for about three months. Celebrate safely, my friends.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
