To The College Student Who Needs Some Extra Motivation To Finish The Semester Strong

Spring Break just ended, and summer is right around the corner and we are all feeling the stress of wanting the semester to be over already.

Spring Break just ended, and all of us are ready for summer at this point. We want to relax and have some time for ourselves, and with our friends. But we have to keep going and finish the year strong. It can be so tough to keep going. We are ready for summer nights out with our friends, and to be free from the stress of school. We need to keep motivated and keep going, in order to be able to enjoy our summer.

From personal experience, I lacked in a couple of classes, and while others will be enjoying their summer with their friends, I will be working and taking an online class. While summer classes can be great and beneficial, no one wants to do them. Especially if it's because you slumped one semester and you're behind or need a GPA boost. They're more expensive, and they're crammed into a smaller period of time, so they are a lot faster paced.

That is not enjoyable.

So, if you slack off now leading into summer, you may even end up more stressed in the summer trying to catch up for the following year. College is all about balance. You need to work just as hard as you want to enjoy free time. If you fall behind or push off your responsibilities, then you won't have free time to enjoy because you will be playing catch up. And personally, I believe that the harder you work, they more enjoyable, relaxing, and rewarding that free time is.

Falling behind and procrastinating can be very stressful too. When you're playing catch up with everything you need to get done, you'll probably feel extremely overwhelmed. And I can say personally that it is not a fun experience. That's not a feeling you want over the summer either when you're supposed to be enjoying your time off with your friends and family. Going on vacations, trips, to concerts, having cookouts, etc. You don't want to miss out on all of that.

My advice to you is to keep pushing through the rest of the semester. I know we all just got back from spring break and we're tired of school. We would much rather be back wherever we were for spring break. Whether it was with our family, on vacation, or on a trip with our best friends, anything sounds better than school right now. But think of how rewarding it will be when you finish this semester with the grades that you wanted. You won't be playing catch up, and summer will be more enjoyable. So let's keep pushing and finish the semester strong!

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
