End of Semester As Told By Game of Thrones
Start writing a post

"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.

Or are you?

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.

Standard.net

Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.
