11 Feelings I Have When I'm Halfway Through The Semester, As Told By Oprah
Ron Lewis

So, we're halfway through the semester. We probably just took our midterms and now spring break is here. If you're looking for a hearty chuckle before you go back into this semester, you've come to the right article. Oprah is the person I trust the most in the world and I know she can get me through this trying time in the semester, and I hope she can help you too. Oprah and I are here for you.

1. Will I fail? Will I get straight A's? What is the point of life?

I'm very wary of the percentages in Webcourses right now. It seems as though, according to my calculations, I can either get a 98% in each class or a 3%, depending on how hard I try. It's all very suspicious.

2. I have no idea what's going on and, at this point, I'm too afraid to ask.

So, I have come to terms with the fact that, although I paid a hefty price tag for my degree, I have learned nothing and my knowledge is deteriorating slowly. I feel like I know less than I did when I began this semester, and asking for help would make me a fool.

3. I have no patience.

150 words for a reply to a discussion post? It's a no from me. I have put forth too much effort and now all my motivation is gone. So, I'm just going to sit a lot of things out.

4. Summer is so close.

Being able to sleep in every day and sit on the beach is my only motivation. It seems so close, but so far away.

5. But summer classes...

But technically I have approximately two weeks of summer before summer classes start. Then, I'm stuck in the same routine and that just sounds like the worst thing in the world.

6. Looking at my final exam schedule.

Two back-to-back 9:00 am finals?!!?? I'm not prepared for all of the tears and stress of that doomful week.

7. What is the minimum amount of effort I can put in to succeed?

Okay, but here's the tea. If I get a 13% on this final can I keep my grade? No...okay but what if I get a 27%...

8. I'm just going to sleep and maybe it'll be over.

My biggest tip for dealing with stress? Sleep! There's nothing a good nap can't cure, and then all of your problems will just be pushed to a later time.

9. Prepares for the worst.

Okay, say I go into class that day and forget everything I learn, and get a 0% and fail the class. Can I still get a good paying job where I can buy luxury items?

10. Realizing there is no time left.

If I start studying now there is literally just enough time left for me to read 2 chapters out of 50. So, is it even worth it?

11. Reads one page and then goes on twitter for seven hours.

Then, I finally get it together and get back on that study grind. I open my book, while holding back tears, and while I read one paragraph while retaining about two words, I decide to reward myself with online activities.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"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.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

About a year ago, I began my own fitness journey. Growing up, I had played soccer and kept busy, but after an injury cut my soccer career short I suddenly became very inactive. It took years of misfires before I finally found a new active passion for weight lifting. Getting started is never easy, and setting up for success is the best plan of action to assist anyone in your life who is thinking about starting their own journey. These are a few items you can gift for the fitness rookie in your life:

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

The beaches are starting to open up. At least in Cape Cod, where my family and I were able to vacation this week. Near our house, we have a bit of a private beach, which is great.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
