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

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!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
