Finals Week, As Told By Gilmore Girls

"I need coffee in an IV," said every student ever.


It's the most studious time of the year!

For those who are experiencing a collegiate finals week for the first time, and those of you just looking to commiserate, here's an overview of prepping for finals as told by the Gilmore Girls.

It all starts with the dawning realization that you have an impossible amount of studying to do.

Half your friends still want to go out, which you have no time for...

... and the other half you have to keep on track because they'll see someone at the library and say "Oh, they're cute."

Speaking of the library — how do people not know that you sit at the same table every time?

It's basically your home now since your options of homework and sleep are now an either/or situation.

So, where do you turn when sleep is not an option? Your old friend, caffeine.

And, since you have no time for anything, you're probably eating nothing but pizza, chips, ice cream...

Until finally, the combination of poor eating, caffeine abuse, and sleep deprivation send you into a full-on meltdown.

Which isn't helped by those evil people, who are already done with all of their finals, celebrating.

And just when you feel like you're well and truly ready for the test, you have a friend quiz you and...

But regardless of how it goes, you know that somehow you'll get out of here someday. Just keep studying and dreaming of tossing that square cap.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
