17 Phases Of Taking Midterm Exams, As Told By 'Shameless'

It’s that time in the semester again that makes us go right back into panic mode: midterm exams. This halfway mark tests the knowledge we have learned in the first couple of months of classes.

The only problem is proving we’ve remembered it all! No matter what format they are in, exams are a pain to study for. Here are the different stages of taking midterms through the colorful storytelling of Showtime’s acclaimed series “Shameless.”

Warning: The following GIFs may contain profanity.

1. Being told the midterm exam date.

2. Asking if there will be a study guide.

3. Sitting down to study at 8 p.m. and confident you will ace the exam.

4. Then, you get a text message from your friend.

5. After texting, you start to feel hungry so you make a snack.

6. You look at the clock. It’s almost 11 p.m. and you haven’t done any studying.

7. So, you really need to buckle down.

8. After hours of intense studying, it’s almost 4 a.m. You have four hours before your 8 a.m. class.

9. You missed your alarm and class starts in 30 minutes.

10. But, you make it from your dorm room with five minutes to spare.

11. The professor passes out the exam. You’re either ready and know what you’re doing...

12. Or, you’re freaking out that you forgot everything you studied and are going to fail.

13. The first question...

14. And every question after that.

15. You finish the midterm and hand it to your professor. Now you wait until the grade is posted online.

16. You passed!

17. You’re so happy that you show your parents.

Without a doubt, there are a lot of emotions and stress that goes into studying for midterms, but remember to be calm, take good notes, seek a tutor, do whatever you need to do to get an A. Good luck!

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
