Finals Week Feels As Told By New Girl

The week you're finally as emotional as Jess is

Finals Week Feels As Told By New Girl

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.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.
