It’s that time of the year – the end of the semester is coming. It’s a time for lots of stress, coffee, and late nights. Seinfeld happens to sum up this time of the year pretty well.


1.) Every day feels like this.

2.) In a constant state of hanger.

3.) When the teacher makes the final exam cumulative.

4.) You tend to get emotional very easily.

5.) You avoid your responsibilities in any way possible.

6.) Trying to understand your notes when studying for finals.

7.) When all of your classes and exams are finally over.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Varsity Blues: The College Cheating Scandal Of 2019

Ever wonder how some of the children of celebrities have gotten into some upper division schools?

At least 38 individuals are in custody following the FBI's "Operation Varsity Blues." Among those 38 are actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin.

In this scandal, employees of top-tier schools were taking bribes from parents to admit students, sometimes into their athletic programs with a scholarship and fake athletic profiles, without actually being athletes. Some SAT scores were being switched out, having smarter kids take the SAT tests for these students, some parents were buying test answers for the SAT so their kids could cheat, etc.

As a first generation student with student loans, who have had to work hard for what I have, I'm pissed.

Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining about my circumstance, I'm fine where I'm at, but that doesn't change the injustice that this scandal just brought out. Many of us have been aware of elitist privilege for quite a while, especially when it comes to taxes, treatment, etc. For some, this hits a little closer to home, especially with the Ivy Leagues. The Ivy League schools are already near impossible to get into, only about a 6% admission rate when I applied in 2017, and about 30% of those admissions are legacies, and now we're finding out that more of that small 6% very possibly bought their way in.

Lori Loughlin paid both of her daughters' way into USC through the Crew athletic program. Her bribe amounted to an estimated $500,000. One of her daughters, Olivia Jade, made a YouTube video on her page talking about how she doesn't think she'll be able to make time for school and won't be attending often since she'll be traveling for work and she really "doesn't care about school." She highlights the experiences she wants to have, which are partying and football games. She has also used this college experience to make money, one example being Amazon Prime who outfitted her dorm.

Yes, she is influential, but I think other people could've really used those sponsorships when it came to their dorm rooms.

I worked so hard to get into what I felt was a good school, and this is a reminder in how the upper class and the elite continue to have the upper hand over those trying to improve their circumstances. Due to some of the reports, this has been going on for quite some time, and although we shouldn't be shocked, it doesn't lessen the blow of the reminder of our inability to move up in our social/class systems.

Lately, people have been debating whether or not Kylie Jenner is self-made.

Now it's time to question some of these other celebrities and even politicians who we thought received higher education. If they were accepted into a higher institution solely based on their family and their connections, are they really fit for some of their positions? Did they actually receive the education they needed to be successful, or did they, like Olivia Jade, only attend for the college experience? These are questions that need to be asked.
