Finals Week As Told By Kevin Hart

Finals Week As Told By Kevin Hart

It's a struggle but at least Kevin Hart can relate.

Every college student is beginning to prepare themselves for the dreaded finals week. As rough as it may be for some, Kevin Hart can lighten up any situation with humor. I hope all struggling students can laugh and relate to these highs and lows of finals week, as told by Kevin Hart.

1. When the professor says the exam will be open note

2. When you see a question on the exam that was never covered in class

3. When you desperately need that extra credit so you laugh at your professor's bad jokes

4. When you get a C- on the exam but it's still a passing grade

5. When you take a break from studying to take a nap

6. When someone you barely know asks you to give them your study guide

7. When your professor curves the exam

8. When the study guide the professor gave the class doesn't help at all on the exam

9. When you don't know any of the matching questions so you just guess

10. When the professor says the exam will be cumulative

11. When the smart freshman helps you study for the exam

12. When you finish a final and know you crushed it

13. When you have three hours to do a semester's worth of work

14. When you need at least a B+ on the final to pass the class
15. When your professor cancels your exam

16. When you look at the first question and you don't even know what it means

17. When all of your friends start leaving to go home for the break
18. When you get more than three hours of sleep for once

19. When your friend is trying to give you the answer from across the room

20. When you guess on half the questions but still come out with a B

21. When you're just trying to start the exam but people keep asking a ton of questions

22. When you're trying to convince your friend to help you pass this final

23. When you haven't slept in three days so you start to go a little crazy

24. When you contemplate quitting college and have to snap yourself out of it and pull it together

25. When you don't understand how that one person manages to get up and look nice every day of finals week

26. When you leave school after your last final

Whether you can relate to all or just a couple of these, I hope that your finals week goes a little better than this Kevin-Hart inspired one did. Happy studying!

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

My First College Gal Pal Road Trip Was Amazing

Every girl should have one good girls trip.


In some way or another, everybody has a list of things they want to do in their lives before it's all over. After all, we're human. There's adventure to be had in every life. One thing I have always wanted to do before I grew too old and grey was go on a road trip with my gal pals to the beach. A couple weeks ago, I achieved this memorable milestone, and it allowed me to open up to new surroundings and experiences.

On this trip, I went with two of my friends from college, Kait and Lindsey, to visit my roommate Elizabeth in Virginia Beach. This was pretty big for Lindsey and I because neither of us had been to Virginia Beach before. Thankfully Elizabeth and Kait knew their way around the city, so we never got lost on our way to and fro.

Like most vacations, my favorite parts probably took place at the beach. I'm always at utter peace stomping through mushy sand or leaning down to splash the salty water that tries to knock my short self over. We took pictures and did something us college girls rarely have time to do especially in school: Relax.

The four of us did not live up to the crazed stereotype of girl trips in movies. Although I finally got a chance to sing along to Taylor Swift in a car ride with my friends, so that's always a plus. We played "Top Golf" one day, and by some miracle, I actually won the second game by a fair amount after much humiliation in the first one. We visited some of Elizabeth's family, and I finally got to meet her giant dog Apollo (I call him 'Wolf Dog'). Everyday was another chance to ask with enthusiasm: "So what are we doing today?"

Our trip wasn't like the movies where we all cried or confessed our deepest darkest secrets. Everything the four of us shared was laughter and this calm feeling of being at home, in the chaotic peace of each other's company. We understand each other a little better due to finally seeing what we're like outside of Longwood University. After this, all I can say is that we're most definitely planning the next one!
