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!

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.

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.

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.
