Finals Week Feels As Told By New Girl

Finals Week Feels As Told By New Girl

The week you're finally as emotional as Jess is

You feel like the world may or may not be collapsing around you and the only thing you know is that you’re tired. SO. EFFING. TIRED. You’re friends question whether or not you actually exist because you stopped posting on social media and the only thing on your snapchat story is the same spot in the library that you were camped out in 3 days ago. End of semester parties? Nope. Secret Santa? When exactly do they expect you to buy presents?? 24 hours is not long enough to study every page of your textbooks, go to review sessions, eat, sleep, (jk what is sleep lmk) and talk to your parents just enough so they know you’re alive. The only people who might understand the emotions you’re feelings are our friends in apt. 4D

1. Your day started in the library and it'll end there, too

2. Your thoughts are so weird when you're not studying, that your friends start to wonder what you're on (caffeine. so. much. caffeine.)

3. Going to review sessions like

4. Your attention span gets shorter and shorter as time passes

5. You don't know how, but you've wasted an hour looking at memes on Twitter

6. You don't understand people that aren't stressed tf out

7. And you hate when those people are happy around you (literally bye)

8. Seeing freshmen going out makes you wish you could be so carefree again

9. You've been surviving on snack foods and coffee and telling yourself it's fine

10. Did I mention coffee?

11. You miss sleep so much.

12. And you miss going out just as much. You literally worry that your friends forgot you exist

13. Emotion regulation isn't a thing anymore

14. Except for that feeling when you know NONE of the answers

15. Basically your entire life gets put on hold so you can pass

16. When someone mentions adulting

17. But once finals are over you know you and your friends will de-stress the college way

Thank you for understanding us, New Girl.

Every Time I See A College Tour Group Walk By I Just Want to Scream 'It's a TRAAAPP!'

The tour guide is good - they're just a liar.

It's officially that time of year - anywhere you walk on campus, there's bound to be a gaggle of parents and befuddled high school students winding their way through building after building. In front of them stands an overenthusiastic tour guide, spouting off statistics about the school so fast they'll make your head spin.

Unfortunately, what the tour guide says doesn't exactly line up with what goes on at the school. Oh, the things we students wish we could shout out to the parents as they pass by.

1. "You'll get sick of the dining!"

It may look like there's something new to eat every single day, but by the end of the semester, you'll be sick of everything except the things closest at home.

2. "I'm only here for the free t-shirts!"


3. "IT'S A TRAP!"

Seriously, part two. You get two of three things: a social life, sleep, or good grades. Whoever said you could have all three is lying.

4. "Welcome to the real world, suckers!"

It's got confrontation, taking care of yourself, and formal emails. (Which, of course, your professor will respond with 'k thnx bai' sent from their iPhone.)

5. "Say goodbye to sleep!"

There are three types of people on campus: tea drinkers, coffee drinkers, and people with energy drinks running through their veins.


Check all of your housing options before you move in. The dorm they're showing you might be the worst housing area on campus.


You're getting squat. Free tuition? Try the tune of $13k a year. Or more. Depending.

8. "The library is NOT the best study place."

Depending on your major, there are several places for you to study that aren't the library.

9. "The health center sucks!"

True fact: word through the grapevine is that someone once got antibiotics for a sprained ankle.You may as well sell that leg on the black market to cover the costs.

10. "Believe the roommate horror stories!"

All random roommates are horrible unless proven otherwise. (But be wary of everyone.)

11. "SI (student instructor) sessions are useless."

You will learn nothing . Chances are you'll end up correcting the instructor.

12. "The freshman fifteen is optional."

Some people don't gain it at all, and some people really gain it. It's up to you.

13. "You'll need a car!!"

If, for some reason you can't pay for the overpriced parking pass, find a friend who can.

14. "Hookup culture is real!"

But it's not for everyone. Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean you have to.

15. "Campus jobs are a myth!"

Campus job? What's a campus job? Do you have work-study? No? No job for you. Have you tried the local coffee shop?
