The Ten Stages Of Finals Week

*internally sings "I Will Survive" all week

The Ten Stages Of Finals Week
Laura Sewell

Finals week is almost over for most of us (HALLELUJAH)!!! We have all survived, or at least tried to, and have gone through many of these while suffering this terrible week:

Stage 1: Empowerment

We all go into this week thinking we have everything together and that studying for two minutes is enough to pass

Stage 2: Preparation

We make a million notecards and color code everything in case we actually study

Stage 3: Procrastination

We plan study groups and lock ourselves in the library for hours when we actually just get together to watch Netflix and procrastinate.

Stage 4: Thinking you remember every word said in the lecture

Because who needs to study when you actually paid attention, right?

Stage 5: Realizing you know nothing about Western Civ. or imaginary numbers

Stage 6: Studying the night before

Because sleeping after you learn the material is scientifically beneficial right?

Stage 7: Taking the final

When you look at the first question and forget everything and look at your friend like:

Stage 8: Stressing because you got different answers from your friends and you rethink your whole life plan

Stage 9: Passing (barely)

All you wanted was to pass, right?

Stage 10: Realizing you have a break now (and it's almost Christmas)

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
