The Mid-Semester Day In The Life Of A Student Told By Spongebob Squarepants

How a day typically goes for a college student during the chaotic mid semester.

The Mid-Semester Day In The Life Of A Student Told By Spongebob Squarepants

Spongebob Squarepants was my favorite cartoon when I was little, because I could relate to his antics. Eleven years later I can still relate to this goofy cartoon sponge, but on a different level. Now that I am half way done with college, I am very acquainted with the madness that is the middle of the semester. The characters of Spongebob Squarepants do an excellent job explaining, how a typical day in the life of a college student goes in the middle of the semester.

1. You wake up and realize you have a million and one things to do.

When it's the middle of the semester, you never have a free day. Ever.

2. You then rush to class in the most comfortable outfit you own.

My favorite comfy outfit to wear is any combination of workout clothes. Since I wait until the last minute to leave for campus, I have to rush to class. So I count it as my daily workout.

3. Then your professor calls on you to explain the reading you didn't read.

The middle of the semester is crazy. We don't have time to read every single reading for all of our classes, so we have to try to pick and choose which reading to do for the night. Sometimes we pick wrong and this happens.

4. You then mistakenly walk on the concourse.

The organizations that are spreading their ideas are great and all. But, students are rather grouchy in the middle of the semester. So the concourse campaigners' extra enthusiasm and persistence doesn't exactly appeal to you.

5. Then you go to your professor's office hour to discuss your paper's grade.

No matter how confident you are in yourself, you always seem to feel a little nervous when you go to your professor to talk about a grade. So you try to act as put together and normal as possible, because at least you can control that.

6. You try to seal the deal about your grade as you leave the professor's office.

C'mon we all do this- you try to soften them up with light conversation, about the weather or football, as you leave because you think it'll make it difference. To your dismay, it never really does.

7. Then you go home and eat away your feelings.

Cookies are great, I recommend cookies.

8. And then you realize you have a bunch of household duties to do.

Since you are now depleted of clean clothes and dishes, you must now do all of your house hold duties in one day.

9. Now you have to get ready for your interview with a campus organization.

You put extra effort into looking your best and most presentable. You take twice as long to do your hair and make up, and you have the perfect business professional outfit picked out.

10. And you're on your way to your interview feeling great about yourself.

Now that you are feeling yourself, you are ready to knock out your interview.

11. The interview goes great, until you accidentally say something weird.

We have all been there when we've been nervous. It just happens and it's okay.

12. You then realize it's 8 p.m. and you haven't eaten dinner.

You are so hungry and tired you are willing to eat anything.

13. The eating continues...

College students tend to feast. Or at least I do.

14. After you finish homework, you lay down to go to bed.

You are so excited the day is over and you can finally rest.

15. Then you realize you forgot to study for a quiz the next day.

This is actually the worst feeling.

16. Your brain then searches for the motivation to study...

But you decide it's not worth it to study this late, when you're this tired.

17. So you decide to study for the quiz tomorrow morning before the class and go back to sleep.

Yes, your sanity does come before a quiz grade. Also you know you'll be able to pull it off, because you always do. It's just another day in the life of a college student in the middle of the semester.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
