The Top 6 Places To Cry At FGCU During Exams, Ranked

Sometimes, we all need a good cry.

As we go into finals week at Florida Gulf Coast University, the exams, projects, and papers begin to overwhelm us. And, well, sometimes, we all need a good cry. Which is why I'm writing this because here are the best places-and most acceptable places- to cry on FGCU's campus.

6. Merwin Boardwalk

Nothing better than crying on your way back to your car after an exam surrounded by FGCU's gorgeous cypress domes. Sometimes I just hope the fresh air and green trees help, but I get freaked out by a frog.

5. Dunkin' Donuts

Usually, I cry at Dunkin' because the line is just too long and I know I can't survive without coffee.

4. The Library 

It's probably 3 a.m. Engineer majors are probably having a pizza party and thriving. You, on the other hand, are not thriving. You've got two exams on the same day, only 15 minutes apart. It's pretty safe to say you can get a good cry here. Being in the library is nice because you're able to escape to a study room real quick and get right back to those Crash Course videos.

3. Outside of your advisor's office

To me, this is one of the most acceptable places to cry. Maybe you're stressed to figure out what you want to major in, maybe you're changing your major, or maybe you're finding out you can't graduate on time. While advising offices are all over campus, crying in Sielder or Marieb or wherever is acceptable. Advising offices are a place we've all been hit with relatively bad news.

2. Puppy Palooza

If you're a student at FGCU, you know one of the best times of the years is Puppy Palooza! All you need is your ID and you can cuddle puppies for a couple of minutes to relieve some stress before finals. Are you crying because it's finals week or because you really want to adopt a puppy? No one's going to know, so just cuddle those puppies and cry.

1. Cohen Center

Cohen Center is a great place to study! With the Fishbowl and tons of dining options, it's a great spot on campus. With that being said, Cohen Center is also a totally acceptable place to cry. So, cry, go get some Chick-fil-A, and keep on studying!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
