8 GPA-Saving Signs You Should Most Definitely Drop A Class During Syllabus Week

Maybe next semester?

8 GPA-Saving Signs You Should Most Definitely Drop A Class During Syllabus Week
PX Here

It's the beginning of Spring semester and most of us have already sat through plenty of painful classes.

You know what I'm talking about: your professor is rambling on and on about something you don't care about and you already know that it is going to be a long semester. While not all classes are going to be exciting, there are those that are just extremely dreadful.

Here's how you know that your best bet is to drop the class and move on with your life:

1. Your textbook costs $100 or more.

Sorry, but no college kid has an extra hundred to drop on a textbook for just ONE class.

2. Your professor specifically said you NEED the book.

Unless you LOVE reading, this is a definite RED FLAG.

3. You have a 20+ page reading assignment due next class

Who is teaching this class? The book or the professor?

4. You can’t even get through Day 1 without wanting to fall asleep.

The professor is a complete snoozefest…

5. Or your professor has already said some questionable things.

…Or a definite jerk.

6. “That girl” who made your last class MISERABLE is in this one too.

We all know “that girl”….. the one who asks 500 questions and turns a potentially short class into a drawn out long one.

7. Your friends have taken this professor already and said a good grade is impossible.

Drop this one IMMEDIATELY.

8. You’re just not feeling it.

Maybe next semester?

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
