Finals Week As Told By The Office

Finals week is upon us, and its time to own it! There are many stages to this stress-filled week, and The Office does a great job expressing emotions similar to the ones that college students feel during finals week.

When a professor tells you that the final will be cumulative:

At this point, you realize that every second of your time will be devoted to studying.

Being relieved that one of your other finals is not cumulative:

At least one of your professors cares about your levels of stress. Thanks, prof.

When someone in your class suggests a study group:

If we're going to suffer, we might as well suffer together.

Attending a study group and asking your peers for help:

Becky knows the details of every single event in history and I don't even know what we're supposed to be studying.

Feeling a false sense of hope after a good study session:

You feel like you actually have a chance of receiving a decent grade on this final.

Realizing as a class that you actually aren't prepared:

On a positive note, at least taking the final won't kill you.

Trying to be positive the night before your final:

Life is too short to be completely overwhelmed. One test does not define you... or does it?

Realizing that you should study instead of having fun:

It was fun while it lasted; now back to hitting the books.

Waking up the morning of your final:

You've spent hours upon hours studying, and your brain is officially fried.

Walking into the classroom:

Try to stay calm. It can't be that bad.

Opening up the exam to begin:

It all hits you. You read ahead and realize that you do not remember any of the material. In fact, you second guess yourself when writing down your name.

Confusion turns to rage:

Why would the professor even put these terms on the final when they were barely discussed?! Come on.

Trying the best you can:

Even though you know you're screwed, you will continue to try the best you can. Honestly, though, you're looking at a grade of an 80 at best.

Celebrating survival with peers as soon as you finish:

Walking out of that classroom has never felt better.

Even though you may be stressed over finals week, appreciate that this will not last forever. The sun will rise again tomorrow, and after finals week you will get to enjoy your break. That being said, study your heart out and try your best.

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

It's Important To Remind Yourself To Be Open-Minded And Embrace All Life Has To Offer

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
