"Game of Thrones" Season 8 has begun. And so have the end of semester scaries. As we approach final exams, group projects, and deadlines, we're crawling to the finish line. Each Sunday is the only thing keeping us together during this tragic time. The weeknights may be dark and full of terrors, but us college students have more in common with the GOT characters than you think.

Finals are coming, my friends.

1. Telling myself I have so much time before finals makes the scaries a little easier to handle.

*chugs*

2. Wait, next week? You're telling me finals are coming... NEXT WEEK?

Well, alright then.

3. Scrambling to get my crap together in a week like:

I can't find my lit textbook. WHERE IS MY LIT TEXTBOOK?

4. Finals haven't even begun and I already feel like a train wreck. A live shot of my Mom talking to me when we FaceTime:

True.

5. Hmm... to socialize or to study? Or both?

At little relaxation wouldn't kill you, now, would it?

6. No, I need to focus. Time to go study.

Yes, ringing that bell of shame high over my head. Time to crack down and focus on the task at hand.

7. My brain after studying all night:

You're on your 8th hour studying. It's 11:00pm. You go to do another math problem and you get it wrong, again. Your brain is all about doubting you at this point.

8. Finals day is here. Did it get cold out or is it just me?

*heavy breathing*

9. I get a grip of myself and head into the exam feeling all the power.

Let's do this thing.

10. Me reaching my last final absolutely exhausted and soulless:

I want to go home, too, Rob. I want to go home, too.

11. Your semester is finally over. HALLELUJAH. So, what to do now with all those notebooks and papers? Well:

Burn them all, indeed. What a great cleanse after the hell of a semester you just endured.

Congrats. You're free at last.

10 Ways College Is 100% NOTHING Like High School

Once-a-day showers go to dry shampoo for four days straight.

As a college freshman well into their second semester, it has officially occurred to me just how different, and often times better, college is compared to its predecessor, high school.

Here are just 10 ways the two could not be MORE different:

1. How you sleep

You'll go from waking up three hours before school to three minutes before class

2. How you hygiene

Once-a-day showers develop into dry shampoo for four days straight.

3. How you eat

Pizza goes from a once-in-a-while treat to an everyday food group.

4. How you socialize

You'll go from being nice to everyone to disliking people for no reason.

5. How much effort you put into your appearance

High school contour was on fleek and now there's somehow mascara on your forehead.

6. How you nap

Naps go from two hours to 10 minutes.

7. How you operate heavy machinery

Driving goes from 10 and 2 with perfectly lined up mirrors to driving with your knees and eating a taco.

8. Your classmates

High school classes are with all of your friends and college classes have strangers in them almost every day.

9. The people teaching you things

High school teachers are scary and mean, while college professors become your friends.

10. Textbooks

High school textbooks are provided where college textbooks need to be bought with another student loan.

5 Reasons Why Staying At College For The Summer Is The Ultimate Power Move

No school, no rules, summer vacation at the best place on Earth, also known as college.

621

As summer begins, it brings in the joy of no more school but for most what summer really brings is the sad realization that we have to leave our favorite place and go back to our boring home town with none of our new best friends. Although some have decided to stay at college for the summer and they will soon realize why this will be the best choice that they will be making all summer.

1. NO PARENTS 

What's better than no school, warm weather, and most importantly no one to say, "Are you just going to sleep till 2:30 p.m. every day this summer?"

1. It's like the weekend, but every day

Do you know what weekends felt like during the school year when you didn't have anything to do? No? You never had any free weekends? Wow, I'm so sorry. Well, imagine a weekend that you didn't have to do anything. Now multiply that one weekend by seven and you get seven Saturday like days where you do not have a single care in the world.

3. No "Go cut the grass!"

For the sons, you know that annoying time every week when your dad is going to say, "Go cut the grass." There is nothing you can do to get out of it. Well, staying at school for the summer means no more nagging. You get to choose what you do now.

4. The bond of friendship

The friends you make when you stay at college for the summer are different than any other bond. Mostly because you all don't have a care in the world since it's summer in your favorite place. It's a right of passage to call someone your summer college best friends. These are best friends that words wouldn't do justice.

5. The townies

Everybody always wonders what happens to a college town when all the college kids go home. Well, the townies come back in full swing and take their town back. If you stay at your college, you get to experience what most can't even describe in words. To the one mid-40s guy trying to relive his glory days. To the old men hitting on the college girls at the local pub. To the weird towny creatures that make you shiver with fright as you drive past them. Have fun townies, you only have three months.

That dream of "I wish I could just stay here at college with all these people but have no responsibilities" is finally coming true.
