Finals Week As Told By FRIENDS

Finals Week As Told By FRIENDS

When the rain starts to pour, here's some FRIENDS to get you through

Finals week is just around the corner, and per usual, it will bring late nights of studying and stressful days of test taking. As you enter these last few days of terror before the freedom of break, here are some things you might want to prepare for.

1. When you need to stress eat at 3 am but it's going to take the rest of the money in your bank account to order pizza

2. That moment when your brain hits maximum capacity but you haven't even started studying for final number two

And somehow your professors expect you to find time to also write three research papers, plan four presentations, write a novella, start a small nonprofit, cure cancer and save the world from an alien invasion.

3. When you actually read your textbook and finally comprehend what your professor has been trying to teach all semester

4. Realizing all your hopes and dreams of graduating may need some re-evaluating

Just remember: C's get degrees.

5. When you sit down to take that one final you actually feel prepared for and realize nothing you studied is actually on the test

Well, darn. That's a solid 12 hours of my life I'm never getting back. I could have totally used that time to work on starting my nonprofit or at least begin curing cancer.

6. When your professor says they don't believe in curving grades, but everyone knows the whole class is going to fail

7. Nailing the final of the class where your professor seemed to have a personal vendetta against you

Take that. See, I is smart.

8. Taking a much needed and deserved study break

Sometimes you gotta chill and relax to avoid brain cramps. I hear they can be fatal.

9. When your professor asks you to give your presentation first

10. Sometimes you just need someone to sympathize

Don't worry, we're all slowly dying together.

11. Trying to convince a professor to give you the A you both know you don't really deserve

You didn't go to half the classes, but who has perfect attendance anyway?

12. Giving yourself a pep talk before that final you know you're going to fail

13. When you need to ask your friends to keep it down because you're trying to study and they're having too much fun

If you're cheerful, I don't want to see you. This is the study table of misery.

14. When your friends are arguing if the answer was 86 or 87.5 and you put "Aristotle"

15. When a final is so easy the hardest part about it was writing your name

16. Listening to your professor give a review on things you learned the first week of the semester

Excuse me, was that English? I'm not very fluent in gibberish.

17. When you don't actually know the definition, but you're going to give it your best shot anyways

18. Walking out of your last final and feeling like you might die from relief

Breathe. It's over. You're free. Well...until next semester. But let's not talk about that right now. Now it's just time to catch up on all the sleep and eating and breathing you've missed in the past week.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

Teaching Children The Florida Curriculum: It's As Easy As A Coloring Page

We need to teach students in achievable strategies, and it can be done in the simplest of ways.


As a pre-service teacher, I get to see everything that goes into lesson planning for students. I myself have even had to make lesson plans to teach in my internship, and I can tell you this, it's tougher than it seems because we focus in on what the children need, while also following the curriculum laid out for us. We also have to break it down so students can understand and really connect to the lessons we make for them.

This month, in our kindergarten science lessons, we are learning about the human body and ways to keep ourselves healthy. For kindergarteners, this can be really hard to break down because there are some really advanced subjects mixed into the curriculum. The lesson plan that I most recently wrote was on oral health. When I first approached it, I didn't know how I could break it down to their level. I myself don't understand all that goes into dental health, so how was I supposed to break it down for twenty 5 and 6-year-olds. I searched online, browsing through great resources that teachers use, like and Teachers Pay Teachers, and I was still struggling to find a way to meet all the needs of my students. So I had to sit myself down and think through the mind of a 6-year-old to come up with my lesson.

What I found is that there are ways in which we can teach kids, and specifically this instance, their health, that are super simple, and yet we overlook them all the time.

What is one of the things you loved to do most in kindergarten? For most people you ask, coloring is a very popular answer. One of the most memorable things that I can recall from kindergarten was alphabet coloring pages. These are still used in teaching the alphabet in my own kindergarten practicum that I'm in right now. So why not use this style when I'm teaching them about their oral health?

It was so easy to create a plan based off of what the students would be excited about. I was easily able to create a coloring sheet of the human mouth and from there, I realized I could teach them about specific things within the mouth, like the different types of teeth, and I could do this by having them color coordinate the different teeth by color coordinating them with crayons. I also realized that I could demonstrate good hygiene to them on the baby dolls they love to play within centers. This could make them excited about things like brushing and flossing their teeth, which could benefit their own health in the long run.

As educators, we need to find ways to make tough learning subjects easier to break down to our students and make this learning fun. Once we make learning hard subjects more simple and fun, we can make education fun for the students, and they will hold onto our lessons much more effectively. So I challenge all teachers to do this: Look through the lens of your students, and find ways to bring subjects down to their level and make it enjoyable for them.
