Finals Week As Told By 'Dance Moms'

Finals is a rough time for everyone. For students, we're all worried about saving our grades. For teachers, they have so much grading to do, and they have to deal with all of us complaining. The "Dance Moms" cast might not all be taking finals, but they sure know how we feel.

1. Looking at textbooks is hard work.

Your neck gets tired after looking at textbooks and your laptop for hours on end.

2. Good students get hungry.

When studying takes over your life and you feel guilty about taking a break just to eat dinner.

3. Celebrate the little things.

When you finally finish going through that never-ending Quizlet.

4. Enthusiastic teachers are not needed.

That one teacher who thinks their final assignment is a “fun” experience.

5. Finals are different for everyone.

When someone in your class tells you they thought the final was a breeze...same, these are happy tears.

6. The library becomes your home.

Spending one second too long at the library

7. Reading study guides takes forever.

The one kid who said they didn't study because they already knew everything on the study guide.

8. Teachers that encourage you are important.

The teacher who stands at the door high-fiving every student for successfully making it through this near-death experience is someone to be thankful for.

9. Every point helps.

Trying to get bonus points for creativity and enthusiasm on your final presentation.

10. Get a thick skin.

When you don’t even know the first question on the exam but you can’t let the professor think you’re weak.

11. "Professor blah blah blah is the best."

To the one teacher who didn’t give a final exam, let's give a round of applause, you’re the obvious favorite.

12. Anyone want to hit the gym?

When studying becomes more tiring than running a marathon.

13. It's all fun and games until the essay.

When the exam is going really well until you hit the essay portion.

14. Confidence is key.

Walking out of your exam with all the confidence in the world, knowing you aced it.

15. Party time.

And after a long, hard week, it’s finally over, and you get a break from school!

After all the hard work and mountains of stress, finals week will be rewarding in the end. Keep up the studying and good luck to everyone on finals!

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

If you are dealing with anger issues, please consult your primary care physician, or reach out to Better Help.

Everyone has dealt with anxiety, stress, and even anger at some point in their lives. For some, it's a daily battle with coping anger issues. In fact, it can be brought on by something rather random, or it could even be caused by a highly stressful job where you are dealing with incompetent coworkers and feeling rather under-appreciated. Although life tends to bring along this type of stress that piles on top of the already raging volcano inside, it is best to learn how to live with it in a healthy way.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I have been listening to Taylor Swift since her debut album. I remember getting her first album on CD when I was little. She hasn't always been my favorite, but this summer I rediscovered my love for her songs. I also met people who had listened to her newer stuff but hadn't listened to her original stuff, a tragedy I know.

I thought I would give my personal rankings of every Taylor Swift album, including my favorite song from the album. I know mine are different than several others, and that's OK.
