The first day back to school is the best and worst of a college students life. Showing up to class and not doing a damn thing is amazing, but showing up to class and listening to your professor go on for two hours about the semester and the stress that'll follow is the worst.

The highs and lows of syllabus week, and any week really, have one thing in common: they can all be told by GIFs! Cheers to GIFs, syllabus week, and the semester that is before us!

1. Pre-Syllabus week party

2. The morning after that party

3. Mentally preparing for school the next day

4. Mentally preparing with something to take the edge off

5. Struggling to fall asleep

6. Waking up the next morning for the first day of the semester

7. When your roommates asked how you slept

8. Walking to class and realizing that you haven't walked this much since last semester

9. Getting situated in lecture

10. Five minutes later...

11. Waking up from that nap and not knowing what's going on or where you are

12. Finally finishing classes for the day and going back home

13. Starting your homework

14. Five minutes later...

15. Eating after a long day of napping, crying, and pretending to listen to your professors talk about the course expectations

17. When your roommate's asked you how your day was

18. Finally going to bed after the longest day ever

19. Waking up the next day and realizing you have to do it all again for the next 16 weeks

Cheers to the first day back and cheers to the second semester!

12 Signs You're A Nursing Student

Other than the fact that you're constantly seen in scrubs.

Nursing school is...an adventure. There is nothing quite as exciting or draining as going through the process of becoming a nurse. Some days you're helping to care for tiny babies, and then other days you're off doing wound care for pressure ulcers. Nursing school is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you're gonna get.

There are some key signs in people that show when they're in nursing school. I know my friends and I definitely have these characteristics (whether we want them or not).

1. Your body has no concept of time. Night shift, day shift, there's no time for sleeping. There's no time for anything but studying and work. What day is it? You don't know unless there's an exam.

2. You're addicted to coffee because of the lack of the whole time concept. You can drink coffee and fall asleep right after finishing the cup. Does coffee even work anymore? Does it matter? Oh well, still going to drink the entire pot.

3. Nothing phases you. Poop? Vomit? Yeah, no. I have cleaned up a friend's vomit without even questioning it.

4. You freak out about exams like no other. What do you know? What do you not know? What is pharmacology and why does it hate you? Why doesn't your brain understand neurology? How do you study 10 lectures in one week? WHAT WILL BE ON THE EXAM, JUST TELL US, PLEASE.

5. You can talk about anything during a meal without getting grossed out. Except your non-nursing friends do get really grossed out. You have to filter your conversations when you're at lunch with them. All your friends say things to you like:

6. Your friends never see you. You're either hiding in your room studying, going crazy in clinicals, or working your life away. "Hey, want to hang out?" "Yeah, I'm free next month...actually, next year is better for me."

7. You have two forms: study hyper-drive super-human and half dead maybe-human. "Ahhhhhhhh, gotta study, gotta study! *stays up until 5 am studying*" versus "How am I still living? *passes out facefirst into bed*."

8. You have a very odd habit of complimenting people's veins.

9. You use therapeutic communication during regular daily life. But you don't ask why. "How does that make you feel?"

10. You spend a lot of time during lectures wondering if anyone else is as confused as you. Somebody explain endocrinology to me? Hemodynamic stability? Anyone?

11. You constantly ask yourself why you chose the major you chose, but you know you care too much to change majors. There's no turning back for you.

12. But most importantly, you understand that no matter how much school sucks, you're going to be making a major difference in so many lives. And that's what really matters.

So you've decided that you want to be a Broadcast Journalist?

Many different thoughts go through you're while trying to first off figure out what story you want to pursue. After that, it's just a matter of getting everything that is needed for it and then putting it together.

For all clarity and purposes, I have already turned in my first news story, however as I was completing it, some (if not all) of these thoughts (or a variation of them) came across my mind at some point during the process.

8. Agh, my video is over the 1 minute and 30 seconds allowed time.

9. How should I say my tageline at the end of the video?
