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?

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.

I didn't know that you would stop doing the things that make you happy. The things everyone used to judge you for. You are the type of person who does things on YOUR terms and now they're on his.

As your best friend, all I ever want is for you to be happy. Because as best friends, we know exactly what makes the other happy. I know all your weird and quirky lingo. I know how much you hate certain foods and most of all, I know the things that are important to you in life.
