Finally, the week we have all been waiting for since spring semester started is finally upon us. The week before spring break is a lot like finals week – you have mid terms to study for, papers due that you haven’t even started, and projects that you are dreading presenting to the whole class. Everything is coming at you full speed ahead and you just have to charge through because you can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and that light is spring break. You may be going on some crazy fun vacation to Florida or Cancun and plan to do nothing but get drunk on a beach all week, or you may just be spending your week by catching up on some much needed sleep and binge watching Netflix. Whatever you’re doing, it’s better than being on campus. It’s a little depressing knowing you’ll have to go back to campus because Spring break can be such a tease for summer, but we’re half way there! I think I speak for all of us with the following thoughts we all have before, during, and after spring break:

1. When your professor actually assigns work over the break.

2. When your last class on the last day before break finally ends.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F636253597490517769842194485_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=365&h=7be72d3c2d74c86c97fb0460d6c1bc14f72b30fecee0d89c1bd0400b299265c5&size=980x&c=2052168635 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F636253597490517769842194485_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D365%26h%3D7be72d3c2d74c86c97fb0460d6c1bc14f72b30fecee0d89c1bd0400b299265c5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2052168635%22%7D" expand=1]

3. "It's finally spring break! I can't wait to hit the beach!"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F6362535987672199811194144493_giphy-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=135&h=8f3787c46911daeac68aa91ffc862692b78ba463e18462060e6b8514366f064e&size=980x&c=4243538235 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F6362535987672199811194144493_giphy-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D135%26h%3D8f3787c46911daeac68aa91ffc862692b78ba463e18462060e6b8514366f064e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4243538235%22%7D" expand=1]


4. But then you check the weather and see it's deciding to be winter now that it's practically spring.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F636253599811164799-1071524450_what-the-hell-o.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=826&h=2a60cc480efeee265f06f206447a98a882bd3fe465f44a96a8b069b1bb6f4b13&size=980x&c=3709536690 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F636253599811164799-1071524450_what-the-hell-o.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D826%26h%3D2a60cc480efeee265f06f206447a98a882bd3fe465f44a96a8b069b1bb6f4b13%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3709536690%22%7D" expand=1]

5. "Okay, Florida it is then. Or maybe Cancun. Anywhere that's warm and has a beach works for me."

6. But then you check your bank account...

My bank account: "Oh so you want to travel, huh? Like...to the backyard?"

7. "That's okay, I'm not bikini ready yet anyway. More time for me to start working on that summer bod."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F6362536045123684441151137038_44a53356a2245f5be33f591c98de14e3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=834&h=9e4d6abab20870737278e4619f9de9e55ebf44209c6df636808ba459b1553105&size=980x&c=766482645 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F6362536045123684441151137038_44a53356a2245f5be33f591c98de14e3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D834%26h%3D9e4d6abab20870737278e4619f9de9e55ebf44209c6df636808ba459b1553105%26size%3D980x%26c%3D766482645%22%7D" expand=1]

8. When you want to start working on your tan, too, but you don't want to die of skin cancer by laying in a tanning bed.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F636253608680610625-656207959_6360535327092258981625334798_635968918290574595531747866_tumblr_ln06141ssm1qfjrr7o1_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=232&h=1667650b8d6ce7dd89c64fb7790343982607bc2d1abbc421779dfb8db2d6c6c6&size=980x&c=2801225385 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F636253608680610625-656207959_6360535327092258981625334798_635968918290574595531747866_tumblr_ln06141ssm1qfjrr7o1_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D232%26h%3D1667650b8d6ce7dd89c64fb7790343982607bc2d1abbc421779dfb8db2d6c6c6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2801225385%22%7D" expand=1]

"Why am I so pale and white? Make me a tan person!"

9. When someone wakes you up before noon on your well-deserved week to sleep in.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F636253606308782538170004514_6e481fc7594d17d867199d306e3a94bb.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=269&h=132a481a21d22c1a7d7f07be4b0ca9ee144cd072f234f84947cc9ac77b4235f6&size=980x&c=1694223895 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F636253606308782538170004514_6e481fc7594d17d867199d306e3a94bb.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D269%26h%3D132a481a21d22c1a7d7f07be4b0ca9ee144cd072f234f84947cc9ac77b4235f6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1694223895%22%7D" expand=1]

10. When you realize that your all too short break is quickly coming to an end and you have done nothing but sleep, eat, and watch Netflix.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F636253606908041376911795876_Penny-Needs-Help-For-Her-Computer-Addiction-On-The-Big-Bang-Theory.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=899&h=221da64e0fee66f1524018b3617edda99515c5547eaf5fa7a241dd3837471373&size=980x&c=3090657280 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F636253606908041376911795876_Penny-Needs-Help-For-Her-Computer-Addiction-On-The-Big-Bang-Theory.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D899%26h%3D221da64e0fee66f1524018b3617edda99515c5547eaf5fa7a241dd3837471373%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3090657280%22%7D" expand=1]

11. So you decide to try and get some work done like a good student, but it's just too much.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F636253610407076886-355011598_on-the-floor-homework.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=669&h=d42a82cb19900a9a60bdba31591980db81999a7c582a4d806529f6ce8905193e&size=980x&c=2178091492 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F636253610407076886-355011598_on-the-floor-homework.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D669%26h%3Dd42a82cb19900a9a60bdba31591980db81999a7c582a4d806529f6ce8905193e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2178091492%22%7D" expand=1]

Me, dramatic? Never.

12. Trying to get out of bed when your alarm goes off on the first day back from break like...

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F6362536126435614321015821401_May-05-2016-1405.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=10&h=57050e6128e5add0e443054ca0003f257490598af8cff9485159fc5e8f811a2f&size=980x&c=4225302517 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F6362536126435614321015821401_May-05-2016-1405.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D10%26h%3D57050e6128e5add0e443054ca0003f257490598af8cff9485159fc5e8f811a2f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4225302517%22%7D" expand=1]

13. And then every class you go to your professors ask why no one did their homework.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F6362536137415665851766327435_a26598415d51f46a668fdd2bb1e58c21.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=163&h=aa97a263cfd90ff5f7032784b03946a9b12e8083ba2fb6c100a40656c3578b47&size=980x&c=1312554676 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F6362536137415665851766327435_a26598415d51f46a668fdd2bb1e58c21.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D163%26h%3Daa97a263cfd90ff5f7032784b03946a9b12e8083ba2fb6c100a40656c3578b47%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1312554676%22%7D" expand=1]

What part of the word break did you not understand?

14. "How many more weeks left until summer?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F17%2F636253615109911341-2060278683_AVppV_s-200x150.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=689&h=012afe311830f62f92dcdb4ff14539bd3b35b2a483802f037d179451c89e5e77&size=980x&c=330814835 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F17%252F636253615109911341-2060278683_AVppV_s-200x150.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D689%26h%3D012afe311830f62f92dcdb4ff14539bd3b35b2a483802f037d179451c89e5e77%26size%3D980x%26c%3D330814835%22%7D" expand=1]

To The Boy Who Changed Me

Just another open letter from a crazy ex-girlfriend.

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?
https://pixabay.com/photos/college-students-diploma-graduate-3990783/

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
