Final season is upon us.

The grades we get on these papers or exams can make or break our grades. This is our final attempt at saving our grades. There is a lot of pressure to do well, because we want to be sucessful. Here is a list of stages everyone goes through when studying for finals.

1. Motivation

You tell yourself that you can do this. All your hard work for this semester is finally coming to an end. You have all your notes, books, and tests that will help you do well.

2. Procrastination

Netflix, social media, and friends all get in the way of your studying. You can't focus. And instead of writing your term paper you're watching Shameless.

3. The Giving Up Stage

Your "breaks" have added up, and you realize you haven't been doing as much work as you would have wanted to.

4. The Freak Out Stage

You tell yourself to stop binge-watching shows and playing stupid games on your phone. It's time to study and focus. You flip open your notebooks and realize you can't even understand your notes, the PowerPoints your professor posted are unhelpful, and you realize you've zoned out during your lectures.

5. The Cramming Stage

24 hours before your first exam. You drink more caffeine in these 24 hours than you have in your entire lifetime. 5-Hour Energy becomes your one and only friend. Whenever you start to fall asleep, you slap yourself in an attempt to wake yourself up.

6. Acceptance

You realize that it's now time to take your exams and that no amount of last minute studying can help you. In a few years, you won't even remember what grade you got on this test.

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.
