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.

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.
