Finals Week (as told by puppies)

Finals Week (as told by puppies)

Trying to add some brightness to the most miserable week of the year

Finals Week (as told by puppies)

Arguably the worst week of the year, finals week always seems impossible to get through. Hopefully these cute little four-legged friends can help bring some smiles and motivation to all of the college students struggling to make it through these next few days.

When every morning starts off the same way: with at least a gallon of coffee

Keep it coming.

When you've already been in the library for hours, and it's only noon

Looks like it's time for more coffee

You try to continue healthy eating habits

But it's so hard, and you usually just go for the first thing you can find to eat

Sugar gives you energy, right?

Sometimes the hardest part is trying to just stay awake long enough to make it to a meal

Who needs food anyway? Sleep is what's important.

You try not to think about your empty wallet and bank account

If I can just make this $4.73 last until Christmas...

When you're only half way through the week and already struggling to find more motivation

But then you remember that after finals, Christmas is just around the corner, so that makes things a little better

Just trying to be festive while internally crying

Reminiscing on high school when finals were only 10% of your grade

Ah, the good old days. Those kids don't know how lucky they are.

Then trying to calculate the minimum grades you need to pass your classes

And not exactly being thrilled with the results

More coffee

Is there such a thing as too much? ...No, at least not during finals week.

When you only have 2 more finals to go, so you're trying to be positive

But actually feel dead on the inside

Trying to make time for the gym, but it doesn't really work out

Get it? Work out? The thing that you're not doing because you're sleeping or crying or writing five 20 page papers instead

Finally finishing your last final and passing out as soon as you get home

This floor looks comfortable

And staying asleep for at least a few more months

Then when all of your BFFs are finished their finals, you all sprint to happy hour to celebrate

You're super happy to get home for Christmas, but you still need to catch up on some serious sleep

Now all that's left to do is wait for those final grades to be posted...

The anticipation can be killer, but at least exams are over!

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Getting started is never easy, and setting up for success is the best plan of action to assist anyone in your life who is thinking about starting their own journey.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

The beaches are starting to open up. At least in Cape Cod, where my family and I were able to vacation this week. Near our house, we have a bit of a private beach, which is great.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
