Last Month Of The Semester Struggles

Just one step closer to adulting and taking the next step in to the spiraling vortex we call "our future."

Last Month Of The Semester Struggles

We have approximately three weeks left in the semseter. For some this means graduation. For others, it means you're just one step closer to adulting and taking the next step into the spiraling vortex we call "our future." As for me, the end of this semester marks my halfway point--the transition from underclassman to upperclassman. Not only does it suck to be one half of the way done with Penn State student life, but even worse, it means that we actually need to get ourselves together and start moving forward into the life of an intern or somehow will ourselves to start the search for a "real person" job.

Don't get me wrong, I never want to graduate--and I'm sure most of you feel the same way. However, our undying love for the Happy Valley doesn't compensate for the fact that we are "literally so done" with this semester. Morale is at it's all time low and there is little to no incentive to finish. The last month of the semester has us feeling some type of way.

You come off of a really long week of work, ready to welcome in the weekend with open arms.

You go out every night and have a crazy weekend with all of your friends... thinking you've done all the work there is to do.

Sunday rolls around and you check ANGEL just in an attempt to be somewhat studious after the past two days. Go you!

You notice an assignment in every class is coming up this week.

You share the schedule of your next week from hell with your roommate and they can't help but laugh at your pain.

You cram and try to study for every exam while simultaneously completing papers and projects.

You try to finish strong but the motivation to succeed is just down the toilet along with your GPA.

One more week of failure has come and gone. You lay down in your bed and just take in the misery you have endured. How much longer until summer vacation?

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

74 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
