A Timeline Of Finals Week

Screaming is absolutely inevitable.

A Timeline Of Finals Week

With many college semesters coming to a close, students find themselves procrastinating. You may even be procrastinating right now while you read this article! So, here is an account for how your finals week may have went or will be going as your final days left in school come to an end. Happy finals week!

Friday (before finals):

Last night to party with friends. Poor attempt at coping with finals, but hey, you can't think about that biology exam anymore, you're just numbing your pain.

Saturday Morning:

So. Much. Regret. *Goes back to sleep*

Saturday Afternoon:

The studying begins….

Saturday night:

You reward yourself for studying and consume so much pizza that it actually consumes you.

Sunday Morning:

Kelsey mentioned chocolate chip pancakes. How do you pass that up?

Sunday Afternoon, approximately 3 p.m.:

Pre-studying study break at Starbucks. You need the energy to get through the next few hours.

Sunday Night, approximately 6PM:

Haven't done anything all day… Time to start cramming.

Monday morning:

You show up to your 8 a.m. final with about three hours of sleep, no coffee and only half of the information you studied readily available in your mind.

Monday night, approximately 11 p.m.:

Studying for seven hours straight, slightly brain dead and disoriented.

Tuesday Morning:

Those awful seven hours of studying paid off, definitely aced that exam.

Tuesday Night:

You've been studying all day and still don't understand the majority of the terms. Screaming is absolutely inevitable.

Wednesday Afternoon:

Those two exams just stripped you of your pride. Your brain hurts. Today is not OK.

Wednesday Night:

Your friends are all done with their finals and you still have one more to go. They're leaving and you're the last one of the group left at school.

Thursday afternoon:

You didn't study enough and you're pretty sure that last final dropped your grade at least 10 percent.

Thursday Night:

You’ve finished packing and found out you passed all of your classes!

Friday Morning:

The fam bam is here, and you sadly wave good bye to your dorm room.

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.

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.
