Davis in April is almost as wild as Wal-Mart is all year.

Finals Are Coming, So Here Are 9 People You Can Expect To Find In Davis Library In The Coming Weeks

Finals season is a struggle for all of us, but come on, people. It's like we collectively fall into anarchy about halfway through April. Nothing, not even the library, is sacred.

Here is the diverse cast of characters brought to you by Finals.™

1. The One Who Won't Shut Up

Giphy

I'm looking at you, Davis 2nd Floor. I mean, really? Talking at your Lenoir-at-lunchtime volume doesn't cut it during finals season. It may be the relatively chill second floor, but it's still the library.

2. The Nap Kween

Giphy

They're just taking up a whole chair/couch/table to snooze. I dare you to leave them a passive-aggressive (but lowkey really encouraging, because finals are hard) post-it note.

At least they (usually) aren't snoring.

3. The Typer

Giphy

We all have final papers to write, but this person is really wildin'. They've been typing without pause for like two hours, and their keys are clicking almost as loudly as the One Who Won't Shut Up is talking. This is chaos, people.

4. The Procrastinator

Giphy

You notice this person because they're staring so intently at their laptop. They must be really working hard, right?

No. When you pass their table, you realize they're just watching a Vine compilation on YouTube. Disclaimer, this person might actually be you.

5. The...Sensitive One

Giphy

This person has been on Facebook for the last twenty minutes, but they have the nerve to shoot you the stink eye when you whisper very quietly to your friend. The audacity.

6. The Actual Student

Giphy

Studious and prepared, this person is equipped with a barrage of highlighters and sticky notes. They're actually studying like this is some kind of school or something. Nerds.

7. The Visitor

Giphy

This person doesn't go to UNC; they just want to take advantage of the free Wi-Fi on the UNC-provided desktop computers. It's the middle of finals-studying season and you can't get your work done because this person is watching random YouTube videos on the computer you need.

Oh, the joys of open-to-the-public Davis Library.

8. The Resident

Giphy

On the flip side of the visitor, you have the new Davis Library tenant.

This person has a stack of books beside them, a pillow behind their back, and a couple of empty coffee cups scattered around their table. It's clear that they've been parked here since the library opened. Press F to pay respects.

8. The Personal Crisis

Giphy

Speaking of paying respects, next we have the person who's having a meltdown in the library. Who knows what prompted it—that 12-page research paper they just realized was due tomorrow, the very last COMP 110 assignment specially designed to break spirits, or perhaps just a general realization that we're all paying tons of money to suffer like this.

Whatever the case, the Personal Crisis has been crying silently in the corner since you got to the library.

On second thought, maybe you should just avoid the library and study in your room for today. Who needs campus resources during finals, anyway?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
