It's that time of the year. We're all incredibly stressed out and caffeine is the only thing keeping us awake and helping us survive the day. We're all drowning in the expressive amount of homework and review sheets assigned by our professors; not to mention the deadlines sharing one date and time.

We don't want to write, type, study, or even socialize.

1. We want sleep.

We want it NOW.

2. We want to go home!

No studying, no professors, NO EXAMS!!

We want to leave, move out, go home, and not have to be around professors or the university itself. We want our school to be in our rear-view mirror so we NEVER have to look at it again...until next year.

With that being said, we know that we have to suffer through the inevitable. I wish everyone luck with their finals, passing grades and all! You can make it!

Summer is right around the corner!

I Don't Care How Hard Your Major Is, There Is No Excuse Not To Have A Job While In College

If the name on your credit card does not match the name on your birth certificate, then you really need to re-evaluate your priorities.

We seem to live in a generation where everyone wants to go to college.

It is nice to see that people want to invest in their education, but at what expense? It's easy to commit to a school, and it is even easier to get yourself and your parents into thousands of dollars of debt because you're "living your best life."

To me, it's pathetic if you're over the age of eighteen and you don't have some sort of income or responsibilities outside of homework and attendance. The old excuse, "I want to focus on school," is no longer valid. You can get all A's while having a job, and that has nothing to do with intelligence, but rather your will to succeed. "I don't have time for a job/internship," translates to, "I'm really lazy,".

You don't need to overextend yourself and work forty hours a week, but you should at least work summers or weekends. Any job is a good job. Whether you babysit, walk dogs, work retail, serve tables or have an internship. You need to do something.

"My major is too hard," is not an excuse either. If you can go out on the weekends, you can work.

The rigor of your major should not determine whether or not you decide to contribute to your education. If the name on your credit card does not match the name on your birth certificate, then you really need to re-evaluate your priorities.

Working hard in school does not compensate for having any sense of responsibility.

I understand that not everyone has the same level of time management skills, but if you truly can't work during the school year, you need to be working over the summer and during your breaks. The money you make should not exclusively be for spending; you should be putting it towards books, loans, or housing.

Internships are important too, paid or not.

In my opinion, if you chose not to work for income, you should be working for experience. Your resume includes your degree, but your degree does not include your resume. Experience is important, and internships provide experience. A person working an unpaid internship deserves the same credit as a student working full/part-time.

Though they are not bringing in income for their education, they are gaining experience, and opening up potential opportunities for themselves.

If you go to college just to go to class and do nothing else, then you don't deserve to be there. College is so much more than just turning in assignments, it is a place for mental and academic growth. You need to contribute to your education, whether it is through working for income or working for knowledge or experience.

The 5 Different Fans You'll See In At The Theater For 'Avengers: Endgame'

Other than spoiling the kinds of fans that are inevitably going to disrupt the movie by FaceTiming their grandma to watch the movie with them, there are no spoilers in this article, don't worry.

With the fourth installment of the "Avengers" films, "Avengers: Endgame" being released recently, you might want to know what you're getting yourself into before you see it. And I'm not talking about what you'll be getting yourself into in terms of the heavy emotional toll the hours of crying yourself to sleep will have on you, I'm talking about how to prepare yourself for who might be your possible neighbor in the audience for the movie.

1. The Total Geek

Everyone knows the guy who shows up to the latest comic book movie all decked out in a Captain America jumpsuit carrying a huge metal shield to the movie's opening night. Expect lots of those.

2. The Clueless Hipster Who Goes For The Hype

The dude who shows up and has absolutely no clue what's going on in the movie, but will tell everyone it was his favorite film ever. And yeah, he'll use the word film.

3. The Family Of 5

This fan group will usually show up five minutes before showtime and expect to get five seats all together in the best spot. Sorry to break it to you, Collins family, but your asses (no matter how American) are getting separated.

4. The Angry Middle-Aged Single Man Who Shushes Everybody

If someone laughs for too long at a funny scene, this angry 38-year-old single man will start hollering at them to shut up, which is even more disruptive than someone yawning quietly.

5. The Father/Mother/Grandma/Sibling Who Was Dragged Along

As someone who is too cripplingly insecure to go to a movie alone, in the past I've asked my dad to come see movies with me. After he puts up a big fight, we eventually go together. You'll see tons of awkward people sitting in the audience who have no interest in the film and are only there because they were dragged there by another person.

Before you go see "Avengers: Endgame," you should prepare yourself in many ways, one of which is who you might end up sitting next to.
