April showers bring... mental breakdowns?

Planning For The 30 Days Of April As A College Student, As Told By Jim Halpert

The flowers are blooming, but your GPA is dying. Birds are chirping, but you're crying. Spring is in the air, but so are tests, due dates, assignments, and mental breakdowns.

I mean, yea, April is great and all, but for us, college kids it's basically torture. We can taste the sweet freedom of summer, but we still have 30 excruciatingly long days until May.

But you know what they say, "April Showers bring...mental breakdowns?" If you're one of those college students struggling to get through this month, don't worry, Jim Halpert knows exactly what you're going through.

1. When you realize it's April and you have a million due dates coming up.

2. When you have literally a million things to do and your friends ask if you're coming to t-shirt night.

3. When someone asked how you did on that big exam you were worried about.

I failed, but that's none of your business.

4. When your professors just keep adding more assignments on top of existing assignments.

5. Trying to stay awake after pulling your 3rd all-nighter in a row.

6. Laughing at all of your professor's corny jokes in hopes that he'll curve your final grade.

7. And then he doesn't.

So what am I supposed to do now?

8. When you think about changing your major to something that requires less work.

9. Then realizing that you're basically stuck at this point.

10. Anytime someone asks how school's going you're just like

...can we like not talk about this?

11. When it's 11:54 and you remember you have an assignment due at 11:59.

12. When you're trying to figure out how you're going to pick your grades up by the end of the month.

13. When that one kid who hasn't been to class all semester finally shows up and sits in your seat.

14. Realizing that maybe you're just not cut out for college.

*googles how to be a millionaire without a college degree*

14. When you sit down to take an exam and don't the answer to the first 25 questions.

15. When you're trying not to have a mental breakdown in public.

16. When you get the results back on an assignment you half-assed and they're actually not that bad.

17. When it REALLY hits you that you have just four weeks to save your GPA.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
