20 Things To Do Instead Of Stressing About The End Of The Semester

College is supposed to be fun, because afterwards we are all officially adults.

As the last month of college is soon approaching, the moral is very low. College has its ups and downs, but students should try to remain positive and not sweat the small stuff. Stress just only makes situations worse. Below are 20 things you should do instead of stressing out about the last few weeks of college.

1. Read a book

2. Eat your favorite meal for lunch or dinner- we all love some mac and cheese

3. Watch your favorite movie

4. Take a hot bath/shower

5. Yoga

6. Spend a day with your gal pals

7. Go shopping- we all know you want that new jean skirt

8. Call a friend from home or your parents-they all love and miss you

9. Write a letter to yourself about your feelings

10. Go for a walk or run

11. Explore your college campus

12. Go to the nearest tourist location in your town/city-it could be fun!

13. Get your nails/toes done

14. Scroll through Pinterest, plan your next bedroom aesthetic

15. Paint a canvas to hang up in your room

16. Take a nap

17. Listen to music-or better yet create a new Spotify playlist

18. Take another nap

19. Surf the web- you could find yourself watching YouTube for 2 hours

20. Organize your room (organization is key)

I hope this list helps you think of things to do in the upcoming weeks to be less stressed. All college students can relate to one another when the stress is at an all time high.

It's fine, your fine. College is supposed to be fun, because afterwards we are all officially adults. Just don't worry too much and everything will work itself out. Best of luck to you on your exams and the rest of the semester! You'll kill it girly!

Every Time I See A College Tour Group Walk By I Just Want to Scream 'It's a TRAAAPP!'

The tour guide is good - they're just a liar.

It's officially that time of year - anywhere you walk on campus, there's bound to be a gaggle of parents and befuddled high school students winding their way through building after building. In front of them stands an overenthusiastic tour guide, spouting off statistics about the school so fast they'll make your head spin.

Unfortunately, what the tour guide says doesn't exactly line up with what goes on at the school. Oh, the things we students wish we could shout out to the parents as they pass by.

1. "You'll get sick of the dining!"

It may look like there's something new to eat every single day, but by the end of the semester, you'll be sick of everything except the things closest at home.

2. "I'm only here for the free t-shirts!"


3. "IT'S A TRAP!"

Seriously, part two. You get two of three things: a social life, sleep, or good grades. Whoever said you could have all three is lying.

4. "Welcome to the real world, suckers!"

It's got confrontation, taking care of yourself, and formal emails. (Which, of course, your professor will respond with 'k thnx bai' sent from their iPhone.)

5. "Say goodbye to sleep!"

There are three types of people on campus: tea drinkers, coffee drinkers, and people with energy drinks running through their veins.


Check all of your housing options before you move in. The dorm they're showing you might be the worst housing area on campus.


You're getting squat. Free tuition? Try the tune of $13k a year. Or more. Depending.

8. "The library is NOT the best study place."

Depending on your major, there are several places for you to study that aren't the library.

9. "The health center sucks!"

True fact: word through the grapevine is that someone once got antibiotics for a sprained ankle.You may as well sell that leg on the black market to cover the costs.

10. "Believe the roommate horror stories!"

All random roommates are horrible unless proven otherwise. (But be wary of everyone.)

11. "SI (student instructor) sessions are useless."

You will learn nothing . Chances are you'll end up correcting the instructor.

12. "The freshman fifteen is optional."

Some people don't gain it at all, and some people really gain it. It's up to you.

13. "You'll need a car!!"

If, for some reason you can't pay for the overpriced parking pass, find a friend who can.

14. "Hookup culture is real!"

But it's not for everyone. Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean you have to.

15. "Campus jobs are a myth!"

Campus job? What's a campus job? Do you have work-study? No? No job for you. Have you tried the local coffee shop?
