10 Things I'm Doing Instead Of Studying For Finals

Who is to say that reading isn't as important as writing an essay?

10 Things I'm Doing Instead Of Studying For Finals
Jacqueline Artz

It's officially May, which means it's officially finals, which means all the project deadlines that have slowly been creeping up on me are here and I actually have to pay attention to them.

Which I am, of course, not doing.

Instead, I am doing one of these...

1. Starting "Being Erica"

Wow, this Canadian show on Hulu is my new obsession. Way better than writing a paper on Ecofeminism.

2. Baking Cake

Because now that it's 90 degrees outside there is nothing I want more than to turn on my oven.

3. Working at my internship

And you thought this would be a list of only non-productive things. Nope, I am a great intern. So great that I'll take on extra responsibilities to avoid my classwork.

4. Hanging out with friends

It's finally nice outside! Of course I'm going to the park.

5. Making lists

I am not so delusional so as to forget that I have a lot to do. I am simply writing, organizing, and rewriting my daily to-do lists.

6. Walking dogs

I need money, man, and who is to say that my wallet isn't just as important as my GPA. Isn't that why I'm in school?

7. Watching movies

Ummm if you haven't seen "Black Panther," "A Quiet Place," or "The Avengers" yet then you are the one who is spending your time wrong.

8. Reading

Reading has been on my to-do list for months now, and I can actually do it! I mean, bad timing, but I'm doing it.

9. Applying to summer internships

My cover letters do deserve to be obsessed over for hours

10. Missing deadlines

Probably the most important of the 10 things I am doing instead of writing my paper, but it's fine. So fine. I'm fine, really.

Whether you're on top of your game or struggling like myself, take solace in the fact that it's almost summer. Let it be a beacon that guides you away from the books and towards the hope that you will do better next year (you won't).

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
