This Is A Reminder To Finish The School Year Strong

This Is A Reminder To Finish The School Year Strong

There is only a week left!


Attention college students, it is the end of April! That means that we only have a week left of classes. I repeat, we only have one week left! I'm so excited to be done with regular classes. Unfortunately, I'm taking summer classes but thankfully they're online. The only thing standing in between us and summer vacation are our final exams. I can't believe that I'm about to be a senior in college. This is so wild to me. I still vividly remember being a freshman in high school, senior year and when I first set for on campus at USC. The fact that I only have one year left scares me.

I don't know about y'all but this school year has been tough. One of my fall semester classes was rocky but thankfully this semester, my classes were much more engaging and not as challenging. I've also been experiencing really bad writer's block. I've been starting articles and not finishing them because I just feel they ain't good enough or that people wouldn't be interested in the content. Thankfully, after taking a few weeks, I'm back and going to start posting regularly.

College is really the best four years of your life and I'm so nervous for what life holds for me when I graduate. However, I am so excited for what senior year has to offer. As a broadcast journalism major, I am about to go into my senior semester. Senior semester is when me and other senior broadcast majors have classes that work like a real-world news studio. We will rotate roles such as producing, reporting, anchoring, and many other jobs that news studios do. I'm so excited for my senior semester because currently, I want to do reporting and anchoring, but I may find that I have a stronger passion for producing. I won't know until I get this experience so that I'll know exactly what I want to do when I graduate.

Whether you're a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior; we all have to take these exams seriously. We have so much ahead of us once we all graduate and move up in our lives. But before we all finish school and graduate, we have to take these final exams.

Remember students, we only have a week left go finish the year strong!

5 Struggles That Coming Home For The Summer Pose

Summer isn't always what you think it's going to be, especially when you're coming home.


Summer break is amazing in so many ways: you're given countless hours to yourself, no daily stresses concerning school and assignments, and no overbearing pressures to go out every single night. However, coming home (usually) means you're back living with your parents and back to abiding by their rules, despite the fact that for around ten months, you were the only person making the rules in your own home. Despite the perks that come with summer, I have composited 10 reasons why summer can be hard to bear.

1. Having a set curfew.

I find it almost comical that I was able to "run free" for 10 months in Tallahassee with no regard for what time it was, but while at home I get the "it's time to come home" text from my parents as soon as 11 o'clock rolls around. For the entire school year, I was able to stay at friends' places until the sun came up, at walk out of clubs around closing time with no fear of getting punished for staying out too late, but now, I have to constantly plan around my curfew and ensure that I'm home before I get on my parents' bad side.

2. Having to get a summer job.

It was always a rule in my house that jobs were only meant for summer since my parents felt that getting good grades were our primary priority, so now that school's out, I'm working at my local Panera and dog-sitting for my neighbors, even though I absolutely hate dogs. Working isn't the worst thing I've had to do, but when I have to miss beach days and parties for a job that only pays $9 an hour, it sucks!

3. Countless days of boredom. 

College has made me accustomed to being surrounded by other people and activities 24/7. Sure, there were a couple of hours a day for alone time, but the majority of my day was spent hanging out with friends, going to my sorority, going out, and attending class. Now that I'm home and far away from my friends and the social aspect of FSU, I find myself bored and lonely.

4. Less freedom and independence. 

While away at school, I was able to do pretty much anything I wanted without my parents finding out. I was able to go get fast food in the middle of the night, go out to clubs, and sleep at my friends' place whenever I wanted. Sadly, now that I'm home, I can't just leave whenever I want or do whatever I want; I have to tell my parents when I'm going to places, where I'm going, who I'm meeting, and when exactly I'll be home.

5. Having to unpack and sort through your old clothes and the ones you brought to school.

Being the youngest has gifted me with an overabundance of hand-me-downs, everything from prom dresses to shoes to jewelry. However, over the years, the amount of clothes I have accumulated is insane; coming home has forced me to sort through the piles of old clothes and things I don't want anymore in order to make room for the multiple suitcases I brought back from school. My room looks like a tornado swept through it for three weeks now, despite the countless hours I have spent organizing, donating, and folding.
