10 College Students Who Need The Semester To Be Over

10 Types Of College Students Who Are Almost As Done As The Semester

Finishing a semester's always like finishing a marathon we weren't necessarily prepared for.

A picture of a campus, with a pond, library, and trees.

As the semester draws to a close, there are always mixed feelings about how it went. Some are ready to have this semester done and over with. Others are still entrenched in it. And still others are having the time of their lives. Nevertheless, there's always a certain variety of students you'll find on a campus this time of the semester:

1. The anxious senior. 


They've got one semester left and holy crap, when did all of these requirements come up?? Graduation hotels were supposed to have been booked already?? Is there really only that much time left until they're expected to become real adults??? CAP AND GOWN MEASUREMENTS??? Oh, god. This is not happening.

2. The confident freshmen.


So they've survived so far on campus. Nailed down which dining commons are the best, where are the best places to study, found a solid friend group. This is college. They've got this.

(No one tell them about the sophomore slump).

3. The one who forgot their enrollment appointment. 

Trying to scroll through all of the course offerings be like...


Maybe it was somewhere in the back of their mind, like they knew there was something they were forgetting, but just couldn't put their finger on it. Maybe they just straight up forgot. Either way, you can probably find them scrolling frantically through the courses to find open classes. Wish luck to these ones. They'll need it.

4. The one going abroad next semester.


Their dorms are cleaned, their bags are packed, everything is set. All they have to do is say their goodbyes, take their finals, and they are ready to go. You can love a campus with your entire heart, but abroad is abroad. It's adventure. It's learning. It's probably much better housing than whatever they just left.

5. The one already studying for finals. 


There is no such thing as a break between midterms and finals. A jump start on their final projects? Check. Material prepped for the exam? Right when classes for the semester started. These are the ones you'll find in the library studying until three in the morning weeks before the rest of the student population starts to, and honestly? Their dedication is admirable.

6. The ones whose classes have already filled up. 


Mainly, this consists of freshmen and sophomores (and the occasional junior -- the seniors have already stopped caring at that point) unfortunately behind the curve when it comes to being able to enroll into their classes. The classes were too small, their enrollment time was too late -- it's hard not to feel angry when it really isn't your fault.

7. The half-year students. 


These students maybe needed only a semester to finish up what they needed to do, or they're about to take a semester off. Depending on their reason to take a semester, these ones have either already thrown their entire semester's worth of notes into the trash or are ready to throw in the towel. They're done. Don't bother them until next spring.

8. The one who literally lost sense of time.


They don't mark time in calendar increments anymore -- life just got so hectic they only know what day it is based on the classes they have to go to and when they're allowed to sleep in. They may be surprised to hear the semester's almost over -- and be careful, because this may throw them into a panic.

9. The one jazzed about the future. 


Their schedules are probably great, a huge opportunity is coming up for them, or the promise next semester probably just looks so much better in comparison to this one that they literally just cannot wait. Or maybe it's a new start in their life. Responses can vary.

10. The one who is dead inside.


And for everyone else, it's literally just another semester passing into another. Nothing to see here, right? Time to move along. Another semester of classes, stress, and the occasional stress-lifter. When will the next semester have significance? Who knows?

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

The NBA is back, and for basketball fans, like myself, it has been the BEST news we have heard since COVID-19 shutdown play indefinitely. I mean, come on, we need to see if James Harden can once again perform so well he has back-to-back 50 point games, Kawhi can lead another team to the championship title, and whether Giannis is going to be back-to-back MVP... among like 500 other things running through our heads!

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.
