It's That Time Of The Semester Again...

Follow these 6 tips to make finals week a little less stressful!

Finals can be a very stressful time period for many. Trying to study for every test, doing last minute assignments, and trying to do all the things that you normally do is without a doubt difficult to handle. If your stressed about finals, remember to follow these easy steps to get you through it.

1. Only study one subject at a time.

Do not create more stress for yourself and study one subject then go to another then go back to the other one. Study for each subject once a day so you will not get your information confused.

2. Do not wait until the last minute to study.

Nobody wants to think about finals, because lets face it, just hearing the word makes us stressed out. This is not an excuse to not study! Do not wait until the absolute last minute to study. Studying a little bit everyday will reduce your stress level.

3. Take a break when you are studying.

Do not overwhelm your brain and study the 24 hours that are in the day! Take a break every few hours to give your mind a rest! Go to the gym, go get food, get some sleep, hang out with friends, watch some TV; just do not stay glued to your books all day!

4. Study in a group or with friends.

Studying alone is not always best. Study with a group as well as on your own to gain the perspectives from others. Sometimes studying with others can allow you to remember things a lot more. You can also gain study tips as well as things like mnemonic devices that they thought of, which will allow you to have an easier time to study.

5. Get Sleep and remember to eat.

We all want to do well on our finals, but you have to remember to take care of yourself as well. You are no good to yourself if you do not take care of yourself. By not getting enough sleep or eating, your body will not have any energy. Not having the energy to do anything will create more stress upon yourself.

6. Have confidence in yourself

Finals are very stressful and many of us feel that we are going to fail. One important thing to remember is that you CAN do this. Go into finals week with a positive attitude and confidence within yourself and it will show.

Now I know finals are not easy, but by following these easy steps it will save yourself a lot of stress. Now keep your head up, you got this! You are almost done! Good luck on finals and happy studying!

5 Reasons Book Ginny Is Better Than Movie Ginny

The movies just didn't do our red-headed heroine justice.

"Harry Potter" has been a staple of modern literature since publishing began in the 90's, and the movies are some of the best film adaptations out there. While the movies get a lot right, they also missed the mark on quite a bit, too. One of the most disappointing differences between the books and movies is the erasure of Ginny Weasley. Here are five reasons Ginny was way cooler in the books.

1. She's actually relevant to the plot.


Yeah, she's in the movies, but her significance is debatable. She gets rescued in "Chamber of Secrets" but outside of that, she doesn't do much. In the books, she's always trying to keep up with Harry and her older brother, Ron, and is a powerful addition to the team.

2. She's got spunk.

Movie Ginny is exceptionally lacking in personality. She has some good lines but they don't really compare to her jokes in the books, where's she's always talking back to Ron, Fred, and George, and she's not afraid to speak her mind.

3. She makes Harry happier than he's ever been.

There's no arguing: Harry's life kinda sucks, but the time he's with Ginny in "Half-Blood Prince" is so happy and we just don't see that as much in the movies.

4. She's got great lines.

In the movie, Ginny stays pretty quiet, but in the books, her words have a more meaningful effect and pack a powerful punch.

5. She's a GREAT witch.

We get glimpses of her awesome power in the movie, but from her powerful Reductor Curse to her perfectly-executed Bat-Bogey Hex, Ginny is pretty kick-ass.


Yeah, Movie Ginny is great and Bonnie Wright's portrayal is perfect, but so much of her character that we love in the book goes unseen in the movies.

What "Riverdale" Fans Have In Store With "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch" Reboot

Vastly different from the light-hearted "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch," the reboot will follow "Riverdale's" lead of dark themes but with a supernatural twist.

For months, rumors flew about a Netflix original spinoff of the CW's teen drama "Riverdale." The internet buzzed over whether Selena Gomez would play the lead or if it would follow suit of the original starring Melissa Joan Hart. Netflix finally announced the series on the first of December.

As "Riverdale" took from Archie Comics, the untitled "Sabrina" series will be based on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comics. Vastly different from the light-hearted "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch," the reboot will follow "Riverdale's" lead of dark themes but with a supernatural twist.

"Mad Men's" Kiernan Shipka will revive the role of Sabrina Spellman in the two, 10-episode seasons. There is no doubt that Shipka will be able to take on the dark role as she has dealt with serious subject matter during her time as Sally Draper.

As reported by Deadline, we can expect the plot to follow a coming-of-age story in which puts Sabrina as a sophomore navigating Baxter High with the help of her powers.

If we refer to the comics, witchcraft will be taken to another level - "American Horror Story: Coven" style. Alright, not quite so violent and horrific. However, the graphic novel includes elements like sacrifices and Satan-worshipping, the whole nine yards. If this tells you anything, the series is said to be influenced by the horror films Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist.

"Riverdale" creator, Roberto Aguirre Sacasa, tweeted out the following concept sketch for the upcoming, witchy show.

Moreover, speculators believe Sabrina may make an appearance in Riverdale. After all, Jason Blossom took a trip to Greendale during the pilot episode, which happens to be the half-witch, half-mortal's hometown.

Nevertheless, the new Netflix Original Series is bound to bring some magic into viewers' lives.
