"Studying law. Making a responsible choice for my future."

Finals Week, As Told By Marshall Eriksen

Finals week has hit, leaving college students everywhere questioning their choice to come to college, their major, and their entire life. Going through both undergrad and law school, nobody understands the pressures of finals week quite like Marshall Eriksen.

When your professor says that if you study the notes you took, you should be fine.

And then when you realize just how much studying you have to do.

So you try to take your stress out in "healthier" ways.

You start to have mental breakdowns over literally everything.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F11%2F636170832881843810-185527718_BreakDownOverEverything.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=627&h=4c16b50bda6d458472fd4824f8533c235aecc5cc5c96935ea0b259534c8a4f35&size=980x&c=1118490950 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F11%252F636170832881843810-185527718_BreakDownOverEverything.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D627%26h%3D4c16b50bda6d458472fd4824f8533c235aecc5cc5c96935ea0b259534c8a4f35%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1118490950%22%7D" expand=1]

But you realize you have to study, so you try to make it a little bit fun.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F11%2F636170833517279137414824871_studyinglaw.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=20&h=4da91d46486aea9dc9e5ae7ca2e4e7863eec490594b56b8eba75859ea42398a7&size=980x&c=2947179415 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F11%252F636170833517279137414824871_studyinglaw.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D20%26h%3D4da91d46486aea9dc9e5ae7ca2e4e7863eec490594b56b8eba75859ea42398a7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2947179415%22%7D" expand=1]

However, you start to become pretty counterproductive after a little while.

And you start to wonder if this "college" thing is really for you.


It's time to take the test, and you warm yourself up with a little pep-talk.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F12%2F636171006699829847-1758565290_marshal.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=820&h=61a62e726a46e6d42dfefe95a6fef6f77b61c00c1b362e640d67eda402ecb6c9&size=980x&c=3363529249 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F12%252F636171006699829847-1758565290_marshal.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D820%26h%3D61a62e726a46e6d42dfefe95a6fef6f77b61c00c1b362e640d67eda402ecb6c9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3363529249%22%7D" expand=1]

When you actually know an answer on the test and feel like an absolute genius.

And when you sit there trying to figure out how to word something for 10 minutes before realizing you have no idea what the answer is.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F11%2F636170837314569285-720047041_Trying%2520To%2520Word%2520Something.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=679&h=27299f71b4ac5394bd8695c520b627675161b08e219aed2a8c832cf1da18388b&size=980x&c=720642833 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F11%252F636170837314569285-720047041_Trying%252520To%252520Word%252520Something.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D679%26h%3D27299f71b4ac5394bd8695c520b627675161b08e219aed2a8c832cf1da18388b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D720642833%22%7D" expand=1]

So you just talk in repetitive circles about random stuff to maybe get partial credit for trying.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F11%2F6361708376370621001921461516_BullShitting.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=943&h=b78cc44605f32cfb4b33664bc299f2378bef4f182195512a00c000c75d69d727&size=980x&c=1059370615 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F11%252F6361708376370621001921461516_BullShitting.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D943%26h%3Db78cc44605f32cfb4b33664bc299f2378bef4f182195512a00c000c75d69d727%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1059370615%22%7D" expand=1]


And finally, realizing that no matter what, you get to go home for Christmas break when you're done.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
