Finals Week As Told By 'Friends'

The struggles us college students go through this time of the year.

Finals Week As Told By 'Friends'

It's that time of the year again. Christmas is in the air, break is only a few days away, and our motivation is dropping faster than the temperature. We stretch ourselves to our very ends and cram as much information into our heads as possible. Around campus, the look on every student's face is a mix of stress and sleep deprivation, the library is packed 24 hours a day, and caffeine becomes our best friend. If you begin suffering from these problems, just know that you're not alone and try to laugh it off with these relatable moments from our favorite 90s sitcom.

You came back from Thanksgiving Break like

But then realized you forgot everything you learned prior

When the professor is explaining what will be on the final

And the thought of taking it makes you want to scream

Your wardrobe stays fairly consistent the whole week

Running on very little sleep

So little that you start going crazy

And are forced to caffeinate every morning like

After hour 5 of binge studying

And finding yourself thinking about all the things you'd rather be doing

And deciding you can't take another minute of studying

Because you've lost all your motivation

When the person who hasn't showed up to class all semester asks to borrow your study guide

Your emotions are all over the place

And you result to stress eating

When your smart friend says they'll study with you

When you see something on the final that you know the professor didn't cover

And looking at your professor like

Coming home from failing a final to find out your roommate aced theirs

Nailing your final presentation and watching the class go

When you find out you passed all your finals

Or if you don't do so well on them

When all your finals are FINALLY over

You go out and celebrate

And feel like a giant weight is lifted off your shoulders

Knowing you can finally relax and enjoy your winter break

Best of luck this week my fellow collegiates! Just remember that our month long break is only a few stressful days away!

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.
