11 Songs To Make Your Finals Merry and Bright
Grace Gilbert

Hey everyone! My latest realization is that I am officially more than halfway done with my college career. Weird. That's right. As of a few days ago, I am a second semester Junior. My finals went well and now I'm home with my awesome family and friends taking a much needed break.

I kind of had some thoughts during finals week.Which was pretty annoying considering I had very little (and I mean very little) time for thoughts. When my super intelligent and studious best friend dragged me to the library, I asked myself how many more times would she have to do that? Wait...am I? Will I? Am I going to miss the kind of chaos that makes you want to throw up that is finals week?

You're probably about to stop reading and report me for suspicious behavior but I'm serious. Soon we will be phased out. Before our chairs can even get cold some wide eyed freshman who thinks Four Loko is a food group will be taking your place burning the midnight oil at the library. So is it so wrong of me to say that maybe, just maybe I might miss it?

I'll kind of miss making Starbucks practically my place of residence for a week and fighting people for a seat. I'll miss the study snacks my sorority treats us with. I'll miss the feeling you get when you hand in your last final that could only be comparable to what a popstar feels when they do a mic drop at Madison Square Garden.

Also while I should have been studying I started to think of ways to turn Christmas songs into songs about finals and I am now going to share that with you. If you're out of the woods and done with your finals I hope these make you laugh and look back at the awesomely terrible time you had. If you're still finishing up may these tunes keep you going!

1. "Silent Night, Horrible Night"

This is a song about how quiet the library is when you are there all night. Except, all is not calm and all is not bright.

2. "All I Want For Christmas in an A"

Mariah Carey please let me know if you're interested in recording this! Thanks!

3. "Dumber Boy"

A song about the guy who texts in the group me the day before the final asking if there is a final. Pa rum pum pum pum

4. "Do You Fear What I Fear"

A song you sing to your fellow classmates as you wait for grades to be posted.

5. "It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Failing"

When your final is in an hour and you're on slide one of ninety seven slides of a Powerpoint.

6. "I Saw Mommy Kissing My Professor"

Just as inappropriate as the real version!

7."Angles We Have Heard On High"

This one goes out to all the math majors out there.

8. "Last Finals" 

~Last finals, I gave you my soul. And the very next day, you didn't post my grade~

9."It’s The Most Terrible Time of The Year"

There'll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories of
finals long, long ago

10. "I Got Run Over By Finals"

Better than it happening to Grandma! Let's change the real version to this permanently!

11. Slay Ride

When you absolutely killed your final!

Well, I have a full album here so if anyone needs me I'll be recording my demo!

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I Watched 'The Social Dilemma' And YIKES, I'm Terrified For The Next Generation's Mental Health

Millennials can remember a time without online social affirmation, but we may be the last ones.

The Social Dilemma / Netflix

I've been in a media job for the entirety of my professional career. From part-time social media internships to full-time editorial work, I've continued to learn how to tell stories, write catchy headlines, and keep people interested. I believe working in media is a big responsibility, as well as a valuable way to advance our world.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".


- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

The Smile Project Just Launched An Ambassador Program, And I Can't Wait To Get Started

Looking to shift your perspective, be happier, or just get involved in something truly amazing? Look no further.


The Smile Project is a nonprofit organization devoted to spreading happiness, founded by Elizabeth Buechele. It all started on a random day in the fall of her senior year. She was driving home from school when this thought crossed her mind: "Day 1: Happiness is…those perfect car rides where the radio just plays all the right songs."

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
