The Hell That Is Finals Week, As Told By All Our Favorite Moments From 'Friends'

We're all drowning in finals, so we need some laughs.

The worst f-word college students hate to hear... FINALS. Sadly, the time has come where we are consumed with final projects, final tests, final homework assignments, and final classes. We are consumed with sleep deprivation, anxiety and too many fast food runs and Starbuck coffees. We spend what feels like a semesters worth of hours in the library trying to learn everything from the beginning of the time.

So what's the bright side to all the stressful side effects of the end of the semester? Christmas break is literally your finish line. We are so close to that finish line, we could all break down and cry with joy. To get us through the semester, here are some things we can all relate on told by the cast of "Friends."

1. Coming back from Thanksgiving not remember anything from the week before


Let's be real, everything from the week prior to Thanksgiving break shouldn't be counted for. I mean we're already checked out.

2. Going through the week before finals telling when your OK when you know you're just kidding yourself


We're all drowning in last minute test, finals and projects. We're not fine!

3. Looking at your finals schedule, not knowing how you're going to study for all your exams

Figuring out how you're going to study ahead for finals has to be the most stressful, annoying thing to figure out during the last few weeks of finals.

4. Checking on your friends to make sure they're doing OK while studying

Check on your friends. They might need a saving grace from going insane.

5. When you realize you're procrastinated until the last minute before your final to study 


We can't deny that we're all been at this point during finals.

6. What you've study vs. What is on the exam

7. The time between taking your final and waiting for your professor to put in your grade

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.
