h, yes. It's that time of year: finals season. As any spring semester college student knows, these next couple of weeks can be unbelievably difficult to power through--we're so close to summer, yet so far. We have papers to write, tests to study for, professors to impress, internships to secure. It's the definition of crunch time. So, while you're wasting away in the library or your favorite cry spot on campus, here are some happy things to look forward to/think about to help get you through #finalszn.

1. Showering without flip-flops.

Such a simple joy. Something we take for granted at home.

2. REAL food.

I feel like this one goes without saying. No more mystery meatloaf or desserts with random cereals baked into them (I'm looking at you, Villanova Pit.)

3. Spending time with your pets.

Oh WOW do I miss my dog. Ava, I'm coming for you.

4. Family dinners!

It's tough to find time to really talk with your whole family during the school year--it's so nice to be able to sit down, eat, relax, and just catch up with your whole fam squad.

5. Your own bed.

A simple joy.

6. Long car rides with your friends from home.

Arguably my favorite part of the summer time!

7. Your friends from home in general.

Again, this one kinda goes without saying.

8. Blasting music without bothering your neighbors.

Dorm living can be rough, man.

9. Reading for FUN and not for school.

I don't know about you, but during the semester I don't have the time to read anything other than a textbook, and that sucks.

10. Your favorite local food place.

Everyone has one.

11. Spending time outside in the WARMTH.

What's sunlight? I don't know her anymore.

12. Guilt-free Netflix!

It's not like you didn't watch it during the semester, it's that now you can watch it without using it to procrastinate anything else! Wow!

13. Spontaneous day trips!

To the beach, to amusement parks, to your local movie theatre--anything counts, everything's fun.

14. Two words: Private. Bathroom.

All I'm saying is it's kinda hard to belt my shower tunes in a communal bathroom without feeling at least a little judged.

15. Free laundry!

And you don't even have to traverse the whole building to get to it!

16. Late night ice-cream trips.

The best.

17. Makin. Dat. Money.

As a broke college student, this one is important. And it's not even for a work study this time!

18. Next school year!

The fun parts, anyways.

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.
