5 Feelings Every Second Semester High School Senior Has, As Told By 'Grey's Anatomy'

Meredith may have to deal with bombs, plane crashes, and car accidents, but we have to deal with high school.

TV Guide

It's senior year! Celebrations, happy thoughts and one year until graduation. We only have one more year left, and we're off to college. (Fellow seniors, begin your timers. The clock has started.)

In all honesty, senior year is a time ripe with emotions, a tiring (yet worthwhile) period of high school during which we all feel simultaneously ready to leave and wanting to stay all at once. All the feels, all at once.

On that note, here are 5 feelings every senior in high school has before graduation, as told by Grey's Anatomy.

1. Confusion

It's senior year. Should I do my homework? Should I study? Of course I should. Or, should I? What's a good balance between put-together and lazy?

2. Senioritis 

Okay, listen, all those high school movies keep telling me that high school seniors are super relaxed and have a bunch of free time on their hands. Then why do I have three tests and two projects due in the next hour? I wish I could have senioritis, but I'm too busy.

3. College Stress

What college am I supposed to go to? What if I get rejected? What about scholarships and financial aid? Should I go out of state? Ugh, too many questions and too little time.

4. The Existential Crisis

Wait, what am I doing with my life? Do I really want to go into my career field? What if I want to be a plumber? I mean, I've never tried it...

5. School Nostalgia

Aw, now that I think about it, this year is actually going to end. I'm going to miss these hallways, all my friends and my teachers. Even the ones that hated me! Sigh, the memories.

Leave it to the lovely Grey's Anatomy to encapsulate your senior year. How many of these have you already felt?

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
