13 Things I Would Rather Do Than Take My Finals: Spring 2019 Edition

Stepping into a field of legos does not sound too awful compared to finals.

Finals, no one really wants to do them because they are stressful and gives us all anxiety knowing that one little test or paper is worth 20% or more of our final grade in the course. Since this article has been written over and over again I present the Spring 2019 version of things I rather do besides finals week.

Watch Tom Brady win another Super Bowl.

I would rather see Tom Brady win than take an exam, at least the heartbreak will only be temporary.

Step into a field of Legos while barefoot and not cry.

media.giphy.com

No one likes stepping on legos, but I rather do that, barefoot and not shed a tear because unlike my last exam the pain is only temporary.

Be waterboarded by the CIA

media.giphy.com

At least the pain of waterboarding is temporary than the anxiety of a final.

Watch 24 hours worth of golf tournaments with my eyes taped open.

media.giphy.com

I'm not a golf fan because it is not my cup of tea and it is boring, but I would subject myself to watching 24 hours non-stop of golf than take another final exam.

Get a tattoo of my ex's name on my ankle

media.giphy.com

I don't believe in getting tattoos of an S.O name on it because there is always the chance of heartbreak, but it getting a tiny tattoo of an ex's name on my ankle will get me out of all my finals for life, I'm down.

Listen to Friday by Rebecca Black

media.giphy.com

The most annoying song, but if I can get out of a final, I'll download that and all the remixes.

Watch the first eight minutes of UP with onions in my eyes and try not to cry.

media.giphy.com

The first eight minutes of UP will always be memorable and forever has a place in my heart, but I will accept the challenge of not crying during those eight minutes for an exemption.

Eat dinner with everyone I had beef with and am still not friends with as a result.

media.giphy.com

I have a lot of enemies due to some stupid stuff, but finals scare me so bad that I would eat dinner with all 30 of them if it meant I get out of my finals.

Go through a 24-hour tattoo with no breaks

media.giphy.com

For some people this is a dream, for me, it is torture because I hate needles, and that is the only thing between me and a small cute tattoo that I have been wanting. However, if I do this and get exempt from my finals, give me the chair.

Listen to Baby by Justin Bieber on repeat.

media.giphy.com

It was cringe worthy then and it is still now, but if can get a little exemption, then I'll do it.

Watch all the scary movies in existence.

media.giphy.com

Because nothing scares me more than exams and how much one exam can impact my life.

Take 8th grade physical science again.

media.giphy.com

My teacher was mean and spiteful, but I will deal with her again before I take another final. Shoutout to Mr. Gaynor for always looking out for me in the class!

Give birth to a baby without any pain relieving medication.

media.giphy.com

I heard from many of my beautiful friends, who are powerful mothers that childbirth is excruciating; most had a pain reliever or another when giving birth to their angel. However, if I were pregnant, I would skip the medication if it meant I get out of my finals. This is coming from someone that is afraid of childbirth.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row
Sojo.net

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
