Going Out The Weekend Before Hell Week As Told By Ron Swanson

Going Out The Weekend Before Hell Week As Told By Ron Swanson

"Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing." -Ron Swanson


Hell week is coming. Two tests, six papers and a group presentation with group members who refuse to text you back. Did he seriously mute the GroupMe? We all have those weeks-- those weeks where every class decides to make everything due and there’s a test in every subject. You might even try to be productive and start the weekend before it all goes to shit. But then you get the text… the text from the Squad saying that the party is lit right when you sit down to get started on Hell Week studying. WHY DO THEY DO THIS?

They blow up the group chat until your willpower is broken and you finally give in, put up the books, and put on your party clothes.

Before you know it, you’re ten shots in and you don’t even remember what major you are, much less what the hell that paper is about that’s due in 12 hours.

The night can only last so long. Waking up to reality is actually the most painful thing ever, well besides a headache. When you see your friends in the morning, you’re a tad salty about them making you go out.

Now it’s time to start cramming for the laundry list of tests and assignments due this week. So begins the week of all-nighters, and really, you can only blame yourself. Will you ever learn to have an ounce of willpower?

You sit down at your test, and you’re honestly not even sure if you studied for the right class.

You make it to Thursday, and Friday is jam packed with due dates. While you’re in the library, your feed is blowing up with pictures from Thirsty Thursday shenanigans.

What’s happiness? Why did you go out and do this to yourself?

Finally, it’s Friday! You deserve to treat yo’self after Hell Week.

Did someone say “drunk food”?

You refuse to even look at the calendar for next week until the weekend is over.

Sunday night arrives, and you realize that while you wasted another entire weekend, Hell Week Round two has snuck up on you. But do you have regrets?

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
