Don't know if you knew you needed this, but now you do if you didn't.

Finals Week (As Told By Lin-Manuel Miranda)

The incomparable Lin-Manuel Miranda has shot to international fame in the past year from, not only his original musical Hamilton, but also from his new movie Moana and the famed Hamilton Mixtape (which, can be confirmed, is in fact "fire", as they say). However, it's his personal Twitter account and his incredibly unique facial expressions that have made the internet fall in love with him. Here are your thoughts on finals week, as told by Lin.

1. When You Realize It's Actually Finals Week


2. The Moment You Run Out Of Things To Say But You Still Have Eight Minutes Left For Your Presentation

"And uhh..... yeah..... so uh..."

3. When Your Friend Invites You To Go Out The Night Before Your Biggest Test

"Dude, are you even thinking?!?! How do you possibly have TIME for that?!"

4. When You're Halfway Through A Test And The Professor Says "Five Minutes Left!"

"Yo, wait, hold up man, you just handed us the papers...?!" (Maybe that's why Eliza asked "Why do you write like you're running out of time?")

5. "So how's that twelve page final paper going?"

The usual answer is generally either haggard silence or a pained groan.

6. When You're Trying To Study And Someone Is Being Loud

It's the library. It's two a.m. on Tuesday and no one has moved since 7 p.m. Why are they belting????????!!!?!?!?

7. When You Finally Leave The Library or Computer Lab

"A WHOLE NEW WORRRRRLLLDDDDDD!!!- Whoa its so cold out, when did it get so cold out?!"

8. Wishing Your Friend Good Luck As You Pass Each Other

You both just get it.

9. Coffee? FREE Coffee?!?!

I haven't had seven cups before 9am its fine I'm fine this is fine okay I'm not shaking you're shaking don't tell me how to survive my finals hahahaHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

10. "Uh, Sleep? Umm, I'm sorry I don't know what that is. What's That?"

Finals week, no one is familiar with that concept. 'Tis but a blissful illusion.

11. When You Roll Up To The Door Just In Time For The Final

Like sliding into home base before they catch you. You're a force to be reckoned with, my friend.

12. When You See Your Classmates *Also Studying* Across The Way

"Ayyyyyy what up you guys?- Hey, did you ever figure out the answer to number 46?"

13. When You And Your Friends Are Eating Lunch At The Same Time

I mean, usually just remembering to eat something is enough of an achievement in itself. But eating with friends makes it even better.

14. When Your Group Boutta Drop The Hottest Project Of The Semester

Is it a mixtape? Is it a presentation on the correlation of Shakespeare in film to the original live-theater format? Who knows? (Probably not the lazier half of your group, honestly.)

15. When You Have Just One. Final. Left.

*One Day More plays softly in the background, while student mutters to themselves under their breath* I am not throwin' away my shot, I am not throwing away my-

16. Walking Out Of Your Last Final Like

You are now a highly educated human. Wow. Look at you go.

17. Your Face While Waiting For Final Grades To Go Up

"Man, I just need a B+. Here we go, just a B+, let's goooooo B+!!"

and then, the greatest part of all-

"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).

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.

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.

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.
