Preparing For Finals Week As Told By Gavin Memes

Preparing For Finals Week As Told By Gavin Memes

If any child could understand what it's like to be in any situation thought of, it's Gavin

G sGavin. If any child could understand what it's like to be in any situation thought of, it's Gavin. The child that no one really knows, but we all love mainly due to his countless memes. If anyone can relate to me in any situation it's Gavin. Gavin has countless memes and faces that describe my every mood. Especially during finals week, Gavin easily describe the moods of any college student.

1. Realizing finals are already here and you are no where near prepared

Finals crept up on me again, and I am trying to prepare myself, but it does not seem to be working out as planned.

2. Deciding which class is worth studying for the most

When you have 10,000 classes to study for you sometimes have to pick and choose which ones are the most important to you. It's almost as bad as me deciding which Netflix show I want to binge-watch.

3. When you are on your 5th cup of coffee, yet you still aren't energized

Coffee is already the love of my life, but now more than ever. But even with all of the coffee I drink, it isn't enough. I still feel sluggish and I am constantly contemplating whether this college thing is even worth it.

4. When someone asks how studying is going

We all know this is the worst question to ask... You're actually doing horrible, but like Gavin you put the thumbs up and make it seem as if you aren't crashing and burning.

5. When you see snap stories of your friends having fun and you are on hour 10 in Dacus

I don't think I will ever understand how people find the time to have fun while trying to study for finals at the same time. My definition of fun during finals weeks is being able to eat and find time for sleep.

6. Realizing EVERYTHING is due on the last day of classes

It's the worst feeling ever when you realize everything, and I mean everything you have to do for your classes happen to all be due at the same time: Monday at 11:59pm. You think you have more time to prepare yourself, but let's be honest you don't. You'll be burning the midnight oil to get everything done.

7. When you finally start to relax but remember you have an extra credit assignment due

This leads to further contemplation on whether you actually want to complete the extra credit assignment or not. It is extra credit, but I mean sleep is important to.

8. Calling your parents saying you want to drop out but they tell you no

There are just some days when you want to quit, but you parents clearly won't let you. They've paid too much money and done way too much to get you here and you can't even argue.

9. When you thought you had been really productive for at least 2 hours, but only 10 minutes have gone by

Working in the library seems as thought it would be productive, but the time seems to move much, much slower there.

10. Waking up on the day of your first exam

Self explanatory...

If Gavin can get through life, so can we. Good luck to everyone on finals!

I'd Rather Be Single Than Settle – Here Is Why Being Picky Is Okay

They're on their best behavior when you're dating.

Dating nowadays described in one word: annoying.

What's even more annoying? when people tell you that you're being too "picky" when it comes to dating. Yes, from an outside perspective sometimes that's exactly what it looks like; however, when looking at it from my perspective it all makes sense.

I've heard it all:

"He was cute, why didn't you like him?"

"You didn't even give him a chance!"

"You pay too much attention to the little things!"

What people don't understand is that it's OKAY to be picky when it comes to guys. For some reason, girls in college freak out and think they're supposed to have a boyfriend by now, be engaged by the time they graduate, etc. It's all a little ridiculous.

However, I refuse to put myself on a time table such as this due to the fact that these girls who feel this way are left with no choice but to overlook the things in guys that they shouldn't be overlooking, they're settling and this is something that I refuse to do.

So this leaves the big question: What am I waiting for?

Well, I'm waiting for a guy who...

1. Wants to know my friends.

Blessed doesn't even begin to describe how lucky I am to have the friends that I do.

I want a guy who can hang out with my friends. If a guy makes an effort to impress your friends then that says a lot about him and how he feels about you. This not only shows that he cares about you but he cares about the people in your life as well.

Someone should be happy to see you happy and your friends contribute to that happiness, therefore, they should be nothing more than supportive and caring towards you and your friendships.

2. Actually, cares to get to know me.

Although this is a very broad statement, this is the most important one. A guy should want to know all about you. He should want to know your favorite movie, favorite ice cream flavor, favorite Netflix series, etc. Often, (the guys I get stuck on dates with) love to talk about themselves: they would rather tell you about what workout they did yesterday, what their job is, and what they like to do rather than get to know you.

This is something easy to spot on the first date, so although they may be "cute," you should probably drop them if you leave your date and can recite everything about their life since the day they were born, yet they didn't catch what your last name was.

3. How they talk about other women.

It does not matter who they're talking about, if they call their ex-girlfriend crazy we all know she probably isn't and if she is it's probably their fault.

If they talk bad about their mom, let's be honest, if they're disrespecting their mother they're not going to respect you either. If they mention a girl's physical appearances when describing them. For example, "yeah, I think our waitress is that blonde chick with the big boobs"

Well if that doesn't hint they're a complete f* boy then I don't know what else to tell you. And most importantly calling other women "bitches" that's just disrespectful.

Needless to say, if his conversations are similar to ones you'd hear in a frat house, ditch him.

4. Phone etiquette.

If he can't put his phone down long enough to take you to dinner then he doesn't deserve for you to be sitting across from him.

If a guy is serious about you he's going to give you his undivided attention and he's going to do whatever it takes to impress you and checking Snapchat on a date is not impressive. Also, notice if his phone is facedown, then there's most likely a reason for it.

He doesn't trust who or what could pop up on there and he clearly doesn't want you seeing. Although I'm not particularly interested in what's popping up on their phones, putting them face down says more about the guy than you think it does.

To reiterate, it's okay to be picky ladies, you're young, there's no rush.

Remember these tips next time you're on a date or seeing someone, and keep in mind: they're on their best behavior when you're dating. Then ask yourself, what will they be like when they're comfortable? Years down the road? Is this what I really want? If you ask yourself these questions you might be down the same road I have stumbled upon, being too picky.. and that's better than settling.

Writing Saved My Sanity

Write it all down when you can't talk to anyone.


I love writing.

I have since elementary school, and I've dreamed of becoming a published author. I started off writing stupid plays in elementary school, then it grew it almost writing a full-blown novel in middle school. I have no idea where that thing went to. It was all notebook paper and bad writing. In high school, my writing was kinda pushed to the side so I could focus on school. When I entered college, I started writing small poems about my now ex-boyfriend.

I was scared to express myself to him sometimes, the intensity of my feelings for him scared me. So instead of telling him, I wrote them down. When I tried to share them with him, he hated it. He thought writing down feelings was weird and creepy. So I didn't share anything else with him. When we finally broke up for good, everything just poured out of me. What I couldn't express verbally, I wrote or typed out.

I always have ideas flowing through my head. They never cease and I wouldn't want them to. Writing gives me an escape, from stress, work, school, or fights. It gives me a place to vent and to be open with everything. This is a reason I love writing for Odyssey, not only has this place brought me amazing friends but revived my love for writing. I'm never without my notebook anymore, I'd get distracted in class by an idea and have to write I think then and there.

I love sharing my more personal writing with close friends, especially my poems as of late. I found that I have a voice for young women who find themselves in a toxic relationship much like mine was. I want to speak out and show them that you can grow from the bullshit. It may take some time, but you will be better.

Writing saved my sanity. It allows me to express myself without having to use my actual voice. Anyone who knows me, knows I hate public speaking. I tend to psych myself out leading up to it. My current projects include writing for Odyssey every week, I'm in the process of trying to continue my short stories, and I'm excited to announce that I'm currently working on my very first poetry book!

Writing has given me so much, and I'm so looking forward to making a career out of something I love so much.
