You struggle between wanting to have fun on the last weekend of the semester and knowing that you should really be spending it in the library.

When people are around, you pretend to be productive.

But, ultimately, you decide to:

Until Sunday comes and you remember that you're taking 17 credit hours, have 5 cumulative finals and haven't started your research paper.

So you run to the library, where you will spend the next week of your life.


You start out motivated and ready to study all day

And you actually learn a few things.

But, then you slowly start to lose your motivation.

And your professor won't respond to any of your emails.

And you hear a freshman complain about their finals.

So instead of studying, you start thinking of ways you can get out of taking your finals.

And after spending 8 hours in the library, you finally give up.


Your alarm goes off

And you wish you would have prepared more for this day.

But you show up to your final anyway, as ready as you'll ever be.

You're given your final but everything looks like a foreign language.

But then, you totally know the answer to #27.

And you get to the essay question and have no clue what you're saying.

Then you remember you have four more finals to take.

But, eventually, you turn in the last final and you don't even care anymore because the semester is officially over.


You look terrible

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

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.
