Don't forget to GTL before finals

The Month Of April For A College Student, As Told By The Cast Of 'Jersey Shore'

It's that time during the semester where most college kids are in a slump.

Spring break is over, the window to pull up our grades is slowly closing, and graduation or a summer job is rapidly approaching. The real world is right on the horizon and none of us are ready. We need a break: another chance to let loose, party like college kids, and act in a way that the adults we're supposed to be would find scandalous and abhorrent.

I think what we all need to pretend like we're in an episode of Jersey Shore.

We all know and love MTV's hit show of the early 2010s that documented the wild lives of eight friends living their best (worst? most ill-behaved?) lives in Seaside Heights. Since we can't let loose like Snooki and The Situation did back in the day, here are the final weeks of the semester as told by the cast of Jersey Shore.

1. When you start of the end of the semester thinking you have it all together

2. When the professor mentions a group project that wasn't on the syllabus

3. When your roommate brags about not having any finals

4. Emailing the TA with questions and they won't answer you

5. Mentally preparing yourself for the inevitable mental breakdown

6. Going to office hours and leaving more confused

7. When the final schedule comes out and you have three tests in one day

8. Trying to run away from all of your responsibilities

9. Throwing a temper tantrum because you can't handle the stress anymore

10. Deciding that going out is more important than studying

11. When you wake up the next morning and regret going out and not studying

12. Trying and failing at being a real adult

13. When you're desperate for help and will ask just about anyone

14. When the smartest kid in class gives you their study guide

15. Watching someone in class pick a fight with the professor

16. When you know you bombed an exam but can't do anything about it

17. Trying to explain a bad grade to your parents

18. The moment you realize you have to be a real person after graduation and can't deal

20. When you finish your last final and get to go home!

Here's to everyone trying to survive the end of the semester. With some studying, a little GTL, and maybe an episode or two of Jersey Shore, you'll be just fine!

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
