The 12 Days Of Finals

The 12 Days Of Finals
Dorianna Gross

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas but first FINALS! Every college student can agree that the last week of the semester is the most stressful and mental breakdown worthy days of the year. All you want is to sip hot cocoa and watch "Elf" for the thousandth time, but your professors have another plan for you. A plan that you often think was fabricated by the Grinch himself. Here are the twelve days of finals as told by a college student. I am sure you can relate.

One the first day of finals my professor gave to me a motivational speech on how to succeed.

On the second day of finals my professor gave to me a two hour review class that started one hour late.

On the third day of finals my professor gave to me three research papers in the format of MLA.

On the fourth day of finals my professor gave to me four extra points on a test I failed anyway.

On the fifth day of finals my professor gave to me five mental breakdowns.

On the sixth day of finals my professor gave to me six thoughts of switching majors.

On the seventh day of finals my professor gave to me seven sleepless nights.

On the eighth day of finals my professor gave to me eight cups of coffee.

On the ninth day of finals my professor gave to me nine crying fits.

On the tenth day of finals my professor gave to me ten pounds of stress weight.

On the eleventh day of finals my professor gave to me eleven course elevation requests.

On the twelve day of finals my professor gave to me twelve years of grade school that I miss oh so dearly. Remember when you wanted to graduate from elementary school? When you thought making it out of middle school was a great thing? When you threw your cap in the air and ran from your high school without looking back? Do you miss it now? I know I do. The week leading up to Christmas used to consist of bagel parties, board games, candy canes and movies in class, but now you’re just praying for a Christmas miracle.

May Christmas be Merry and your GPA be high. Let’s welcome a Happy New Year and an even happier (and stressful) new semester! Happy holidays from your friends at Mount Saint Mary College!

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.
