The final stretch.

The Last Month Of School As Told By 'Parks And Recreation'

Today I saw a sign that said that there were 18 more days left until summer. Besides that being the highlight to my entire week, it made me realize something, everyone is in my same position. So here's how the last month of college typically rolls out as told by the one and only Parks and Recreation:

1. Getting information about finals.

We all know what Ron is feeling like right now. It's the end of the year, you're super stressed out, and everything seems to be falling apart. The world is ending as you know it.

2. What you feel like the professors do when your given this much homework and studying to do.

The money is symbolic for homework and assignments. Think about it. It just makes sense.

3. Trying to find motivation.

It's pointless by now to find motivation. You left all of that in the beginning of the semester and there's no getting it back now. You're stuck with the motivation of your mom's encouraging texts and the hug in a mug coffee gives you.

4. Reading for the next day's classes.

Your parents think that you just stay up late because your youth allows you to. This is a public service announcement to everyone out there that I only stay up late if I have to read for class the next day (which is every night lately).

5. People in your dormitory who literally sit around and do nothing all day.

Hi, I was just wondering if you actually go to class? Or what your major was? Because your life seems so much easier than mine. Also, are you passing college?

6. Trying to eat a proper meal.

I'm tired of justifying caf chicken patties and popcorn as my meals. These days, I'm just trying to put something in my stomach so I don't get hangry. All I really want is my mom's home cooking, and I'm not getting that for another month.

7. Trying to remember everything you've learned this semester.

*Makes up mnemonic devices for every single thing you have to memorize and sings said mnemonic devices in the shower much to your roommate's dismay*

8. Studying for exams in a last attempt to save your grade.

You are your own savior at this point. You did this to yourself, and you will get yourself out of this mess. You may not get that almighty A, but by golly are you going to try (even if you are barely holding on to that B).

9. Remembering that you have to leave your friends for the summer.

But I don't want to! Can I just shrink my friends and bring them home with me?

10. Your last final.

See you never college! *Mic Drop* (even though you totally have a couple of semesters left).

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
