Midterms Week As Told By Politics
The Daily Caller

Midterms week can be pretty stressful. It's a series of tests/exams/papers/projects and spring break is just on the other side. Here are some gif's that pretty accurately describe what everyone feels during this week:

You spend all semester taking notes and trying to stay on top of things:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F02%2F636240760693200141351176853_pelosi-dems-clap.nocrop.w536.h2147483647.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=867&h=ea25f6bb07d5b837c3ac3d414995b4fe606556850c2feff72518938ce871e4fe&size=980x&c=2909655147 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F02%252F636240760693200141351176853_pelosi-dems-clap.nocrop.w536.h2147483647.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D867%26h%3Dea25f6bb07d5b837c3ac3d414995b4fe606556850c2feff72518938ce871e4fe%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2909655147%22%7D" expand=1]

Then you see the study guide and see how little you actually know:

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F02%2F636240761854612506-1995147347_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=94&h=c483e636646b5da287082cf768ac4ebaf9065e62618b4b13a7fa754bce1c26a1&size=980x&c=376227409 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F02%252F636240761854612506-1995147347_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D94%26h%3Dc483e636646b5da287082cf768ac4ebaf9065e62618b4b13a7fa754bce1c26a1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D376227409%22%7D" expand=1]

You try not to have a nervous breakdown:

You spend all week studying- no matter how sleep deprived you are:


[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F02%2F63624076500230076334994350_rubio-blink.w710.h473.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=636&h=0eb0132ade486c55c9083653d20677e5f20160ee9006dec92549680a2feb8f43&size=980x&c=2590262221 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F02%252F63624076500230076334994350_rubio-blink.w710.h473.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D636%26h%3D0eb0132ade486c55c9083653d20677e5f20160ee9006dec92549680a2feb8f43%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2590262221%22%7D" expand=1]

Eventually the deadlines sneak up on you:

But you've been preparing all week, so you are ready:


[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F02%2F636240767219497684904069434_cruz-clap.nocrop.w536.h2147483647.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=588&h=8d41731df7251fcb42caea73cc1c3b4992a13a1ec8daf6a85ef85624911800dc&size=980x&c=3445233414 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F02%252F636240767219497684904069434_cruz-clap.nocrop.w536.h2147483647.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D588%26h%3D8d41731df7251fcb42caea73cc1c3b4992a13a1ec8daf6a85ef85624911800dc%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3445233414%22%7D" expand=1]

Even if you need to frantically cram 5 minutes before the test:

There's always that one person who asks a million questions beforehand while everyone else just wants to get it over with:


[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F02%2F636240771468501054-1476338558_snaps-paul-ryan-braces-himself-about-pbs-newshour-state-of-the-union-on-pbs-newshour_jt-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=554&h=528e4176e3cd4e9ab7cd440f35b686b96eef606969d02d60d83d65e955483903&size=980x&c=1436381529 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F02%252F636240771468501054-1476338558_snaps-paul-ryan-braces-himself-about-pbs-newshour-state-of-the-union-on-pbs-newshour_jt-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D554%26h%3D528e4176e3cd4e9ab7cd440f35b686b96eef606969d02d60d83d65e955483903%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1436381529%22%7D" expand=1]

That look you give your friend when it's finally over:

Then you get to leave and you're officially on spring break:

Turns out politics mirrors our thoughts and emotions pretty well during midterms. Who knew?

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?
https://pixabay.com/photos/college-students-diploma-graduate-3990783/

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

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.
