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
Alexis Byrd

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?

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?

African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
