10 Thoughts You Have During A Mid-Term Slump As Told By "The Golden Girls"

Ah, the middle of a college term. You're settled into a routine, you know the groove of your classes, and you can't for the life of you seem to get on top of your assignments. The dreaded mid-term slump has returned to weigh you down once again.

Whether you're one year into higher education or several, it is very hard to be immune to this phenomenon. Oddly enough, though "The Golden Girls" is a sitcom from the mid-1980s to early 1990s about four older women, they can be incredibly relatable. Sometimes in the duration of a mid-term slump, you find yourself giving as many sarcastic replies as Dorothy Zbornak.

1. "Wait, that was due TODAY?"

Where's a fainting couch when I need one?

2. "To cheer myself up, I'll wake up extra early tomorrow so I can look extra cute."

3. "I would rather have an awkward encounter with an ex than write this essay."

I'd probably lose my head if it weren't attached to my body.

5. "This reminds me of a time from back home..."

6. "I don't know how anyone can maintain a social life in between classes and assignments."

I've been doing homework for so long that I think I forgot how to talk to other people.

7. "I am so not in the mood to deal with people today."

I have enough migraine medicine to last me the next five years.

9. "I wish I had some cheesecake."

With some ice cream on top? Yes, please!

10. "How was my week? Picture it: Allen Hall, 2019. It was a stormy day outside..."

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
