syllabus week mood

"the professor actually started lecturing on the first day of class..."


Some professors have the audacity to begin lecturing during syllabus week. This is annoying because of the fact that most college students have gotten adjusted to the concept of having the first week of classes be a glorified read through of the syllabus.

"is section mandatory?"

The big question that one hero always asks. This question helps one decide whether they can have a part time job this quarter/semester, join that intramural team, just decide to be lazy, or have a little bit of free time.

"Quad vibes"

Walking through the main quad/quarry areas of your school can go either one of two ways. If you are interested in joining a new club or organization then you will feel like an absolute celebrity because of the amount of people that will be coming up to you.

On the other hand, if you are settled into the organizations and friend groups you have already, you will be quite annoyed by it all.

middle of the quarter/semester mood

This is the time of the year when people start skipping classes, sleeping in, people drop/withdraw because they missed too many classes, and you begin to figure out who really cares.

"can you sign me in?"

You're either going to be the person signing people in, or texting people you know in the class to sign you into lecture because you slept through your 16th alarm. Most students know the feeling of dread when leaving their bed, so 9 times out of10 your friend will pull through for you. This will come with the classic "did i miss anything important?" and the iconic "did we have a quiz?"

"f$#k i'm late to class" vibes


If you come late to class and did not have a friend save you a seat, you will experience embarrassing feelings of the entire class staring at you, judging you, and it will be awkward. This is distracting for the lecture, and please refrain from doing this. If this is a big lecture hall, then you will either have to sit on the floor or go through the annoying experience of weaseling your way into a row after about a million "excuse me" 's and "sorry" 's. However, if it is a smaller classroom setting, like a seminar, your professor will be able to look you in the eyes with disappointment, through which you will be able to feel their rage even if it is only for a moment.

"i went home after my first class and i took a nap. i slept thru my 2nd class"

sad reax only :(

This happens to the best of us. Sometimes that bed feels way too comfortable and that 15 minute power nap turns into a 2 hour one. You feel amazing when you wake up, but quickly begin to lose your sh!% when you realize you missed lecture.


End of the Quarter/Finals Week Mood

"don't expect to come to office hours at the end of the semester/quarter and have me save you now"

If you've been slacking off all quarter, and decide in the last 2 weeks of instruction that you want to be best friends with your professor, they will most likely give you looks like these.

However, do not fret. most of them will be annoyed at first, but will still help you because professors WANT you to succeed!

"hey lets start a study group or google doc!"

This sounds like a very fun and democratic way of studying the class material, but from what I have experienced, it generally becomes the smarter people of the class/group doing a majority of the work. The rest of the class/group moreover become free riders and study off of their hard work.

"i'll just pull an all nighter"

At one point in your college career, you will try to become a hero, try to go full super saiyan (if you don't get this reference I hate you, but Google is free), and attempt to learn a full semester/quarter's worth of material in a night.

Sometimes this works, but most of the time it turns into this.


Which turns into this.


Finals Week

At this point, you will either know the material or not. Just try your best, and don't panic!

The final will either go one of two ways: Like this.

...Or like this.

...And then you will (most likely) have more finals to deal with, and the cycle will continue.



Once all is said and done, you will be done with another grueling semester/quarter of college. After which, you will be given a break. That break will be very necessary, as your brain is probably fried.

...And then you get to do it all over again.

With no sign of the pandemic going anywhere, brides and grooms who planned to be married in 2020 are forced to opt for plan B — if not plan C or D. While some are downsizing their in-person weddings to meet coronavirus guidelines and state restrictions, others are choosing to cancel theirs until further notice and some, well, they're embracing the virtual "I do."

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending a Zoom wedding for my friend and fellow editor and writer, Kristin Magaldi, and the short-but-sweet ceremony left me in happy tears (surprise surprise). In order to get the scoop on what exactly went into planning a virtual wedding, I asked Kristin to share her best tips so other couples know exactly how to have a Zoom wedding in case they're looking to lean into the video chat vows, too.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

Maybe it was the quarantine months that sent you on a quest to finally find a workout routine that works for you, or maybe it was the lack of routine in the world that inspired you to change your habits or -for some- keep them and make an effort to maintain your health. If gyms were not already evolving with the new needs of the 21st-century gymgoer, they are undoubtedly evolving now with the lifestyle mindset that Covid-19 has left many of us with — a desire for a plan for a positive change seeing that tomorrow is not guaranteed.

The experience that an individual gets out of going to the gym should feel worth their time, energy, and should meet their specific fitness journey goals. If you do not already have a reason to go to the gym, here are ten genius effective implementations that will inspire even the couch-iest potato.

Disney

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

5 Characters From Your Childhood That Combated The Mental Health Stigma

We deserve to see people like us on the big screen just as much as you do.

Perks of Being a Wallflower

Growing up with a neurodevelopment disorder and mental illness, it's easy to feel isolated from the rest of the world. It is not common to look around and see someone that experiences situations similar to the ones you endure. Even if you do come across a person that is also perceived to be "different" in the eyes of society, the negative connotations instilled in everyday life are quick to silence your voice and knock you down before you have a chance to realize that who you are is more than okay--it's normal. This is a big reason why anything that brings understanding and shines a light on what people with neurodevelopment disorders and mental illness go through on a regular basis comes around a sense of relief and happiness fills the body.

In light of this, I went on a hunt to find characters in television and cinema that accurately portray the complexities of developmental disorders and mental health.

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Luxury Fashion Buys Your Bank Account Couldn’t Justify Till This Year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

In case you needed another reason to get the Prada sunnies you've been eyeing all year.

Since I can remember first flipping through my older cousin's fashion magazines as an 8-year-old, I've always had several luxury items on my wish list of items I knew I'd never have, but loved to fantasize about.

As I grew into financial independence later in life, the list grew longer, but the ways in which I could toy with my grocery or travel budget for a month to make room for something I really wanted made the items on it more attainable. Even then, I will (virtually) visit an item online several times in the span of a year to test if I still like it months after eyeing it, and to see if by any chance it may have gone on sale.

First and foremost, shame on you for encouraging the patriarchy and sexism as you police a female's clothing choices. You cannot control our bodies, but what you can advocate for is public health and safety. This includes demoralizing rape, slut-shaming, and protecting society from illness.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.
