For people who are not in college, the spring season brings a plethora of wonderful things to look forward to: blooming flowers, warmer weather, the prospect of summer coming next. However, for students, the months of April and May are purely defined by one terrifying concept: finals.

Instead of actually studying for my exams, I've been binge watching old television shows to distract myself from my impending doom. Of course, classics like "How I Met Your Mother" always have a ton of relatable content that can be applied to the lives of young adults, but I've discovered that some its best quotes are actually relevant the common struggles we all face during finals seasons.

Then, coronavirus (COVID-19) took our spring and shut us in our homes, inciting panic over public health and sparking political upheaval at every decision made by local and federal officials alike. Now, a week after George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, a nationwide conversation is reignited with protests regarding racial injustice in the United States.

7 Ways You Can Safely Attend A Protest In The Middle Of A Pandemic

Wear a mask, but speak up.

It seems like coronavirus (COVID-19) has been around forever now. Life before masks and with public sporting events is a distant memory, hoping to make a comeback sometime this year.
