18 Thoughts Everyone Has When Going Back To School, As Told By 'Grey's Anatomy'

The thought of starting classes and having to exert effort again is painful, I know.

There is no feeling quite like the one that you get as classes approach again after a long, relaxing break. The sequence of events that slowly begin to happen as both the teachers and students prepare for a full schedule of stress again gives most people a stomach ache. Please find some humor as "Grey's Anatomy" describes what we are all feeling inside as we realize that classes are beginning again. I mean, who needs sleep and a social life, anyway?

1. When your teacher assigns work over break

No, I really don't care about your class... yet. Too soon.

2. When you start to think about classes starting again

If I pretend it's not happening, will that make it go away?

3. When your teacher sends the generic "Welcome to My Class" e-mail

*Types into Google* "How much does a stripper make a year?"

4. Reading the syllabus like

Hey, at least we get a week devoted to nothing.

5. Realizing classes start in a matter of days

So not ready yet.

6. When they talk about optional meetings that may be beneficial to the class


7. Discussing dropping out with your friends

Thanks, I needed that.

8. When you think about your qualities that could help you get by if you drop out

Emphasis on the "..."

9. Looking at the class schedule

Who needs a social life, anyway?

10. When the teacher is already telling you to "look up" every question you ask

I already don't like you.

11. Not feeling like you are qualified for the classes you are taking

Adulting is hard.

12. Convincing yourself that you can handle it all

Deep breath in, deep breath out. You got this.

13. When your teacher asks if you did the work he/she assigned over break


14. Beginning your first assignment

15. Taking the first exam

Does it really matter how many apples Sally has left when divided by the square root of the sun?

16. When your friends ask how you did on the first exam

17. The reoccurring question

18. And of course, encouraging your classmates that sticking with it will be worth it in the end

All joking aside, this is your sign that you've got this. I have faith in you, and it's going to be worth it!

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

Let Me Help You Find Your Perfect Morning Routine And Make Waking Up In The Morning Easier

Waking up is hard, but not if you have something to look forward to.


I think everyone can agree that waking up in the morning is not the best feeling in the world. I know that I have always struggled with waking up, especially at early times and when I have to go to a boring class. Over the years, I have tried to make myself a morning person, and have found that there are a few things I always have to do to make my morning go smoothly.

My perfect morning routine starts at night. I get everything I need in check before I go to sleep. I pick out my outfit, pack my book bag and put my computer on the charger. I have learned that I sleep better if I know everything I need to do is in order. Once I am in bed, I try to go to sleep at a decent hour, even though that usually doesn't happen. I set my alarms and make sure my ringer is on so I can hear it.

When the morning comes and my alarm goes off, I immediately open my eyes. No rolling over, no snoozing your alarm.

I know some people think it's a bad habit, but I have to look at my phone. I check the weather and look to see if I got any emails while I was asleep. I get up about 45 minutes before I have to leave, but I never leave my bed without making it up, and once I am up, I go straight to the bathroom. I have found that washing my face in the morning just puts me in a bad mood because the water gets everywhere, so I just splash some water on my face and brush my teeth.

The next few things are what really gets me up in the morning.

I love to look out of my window and see the sunrise while I am doing my makeup. I also make my coffee and grab a protein bar or some yogurt, because breakfast is a big motivator of mine in the morning. Once I am ready, I get my already packed book bag and head out of the door.

It has taken me a very long time to find the perfect morning routine to really wake me up in the morning and get me going, especially because I have a roommate with a very different schedule. If I could, I would probably play a podcast or some energizing songs in the morning, but for now, I would say that my morning routine is pretty perfect.

I hope that you can take some things from my morning routine and see if they help motivate you to wake up in the morning. Don't forget to set your alarm!
