13 Times Disney Summed Up Finals Week

13 Times Disney Summed Up Finals Week

Sometimes the best way to get through your adult responsibilities is to behave like a child…

It’s that time of year again. As the spring semester comes to a close, high school and college students alike look with rising fear toward the most dreaded week of the semester: finals week.

No one likes finals week. Stress and anxiety levels skyrocket, and most of the time you feel like a chicken without its head. There’s a reason the week preceding finals is called “dead week”; campus is dead, classes are dead, and most students would rather be dead than dealing with research papers, final portfolios, two hour exams, and presentations. We wonder how anyone could possibly have prepared for this, but after procrastinating with a few Disney movies, you realize…Disney actually summed up finals week pretty well…

1. When you sit down with all of your notes, and all of your books and you’re READY

To defeat *bum bum* this test! If Mulan can conquer the Huns, you can totally conquer finals week. Hell, she went from being the " wimpy kid sister" to being an inspiration to the entire Chinese army in one musical number! You’ve got your notes and books, and a coffee in your hand. Nothing can stop you from acing all of your finals.

2. When you start to go through your notes and realize there’s a lot of information you still don’t know…

But you remain optimistic! Optimism is essential, almost as essential as coffee. Just remember, nothing can stop you!

3. When you convince yourself that pulling an all nighter is a good idea

You’ll sleep when you’re dead! Right now, the most important thing is making sure you have thoroughly prepared for finals: you’ve got papers to write, projects to finish, and exams to study for! You don’t have time for sleep! Sleep is for the weak!

4. When you have your first breakdown, due to a caffeine and information overload

And your friends have to pull you back to reality...

5. When you make that 3 a.m. coffee run

You’re craving doughnuts, you’re low on energy, and you still have five hours of studying before your 8 a.m. final. Dunkin (or, if you’re in the North Country, Tim Horton’s) is just around the corner, and you need it. You need it bad.

6. When you get to your first final and your professor ask’s how many hours of sleep everyone got the night before

It feels like they’re mocking you. They know you haven’t slept in days, but they ask so nonchalantly…they’re definitely mocking you, and there’s nothing you can do about it because your academic fate now lies in their hands.

7. When you sit down for your exam and realize the first question is on a topic you didn’t study

This usually causes outrage because professors hand out study sheets. They tell you everything that is going to be on the test, and then inevitably put something on the test that they specifically said would not be there…

8. When your professor says you have ten minutes left, and you still have to finish your short response answers

You know the information, you just cant seem to recall any of it at the moment. You only have ten minutes to wrap it up, so you start writing in double time, and your brain goes into high power mode…and most of what you’re writing is complete BS.

9. When you hand in your final, completely certain that you have failed

You did your best, you worked hard, you put your nose to the grind stone and…you totally failed. You’re sure of it. There’s not way you passed that exam. You’re definitely going to get kicked out of college for this…

10. When you’ve made it half way through, and thing’s can’t possibly get any worse

And then they do

11. When you only have one final left

You’re in the home stretch now! You can almost taste freedom! All you have to do is get through one more final and you can blow this popsicle stand. You plan to sleep for days.

12. That’s it! You’re done! Congratulations!

Now that finals week is over, you can go home and sleep…until you remember that final grades get posted in a few weeks. But you’ll stress about that later. For now, you’re just happy you survived (even though you might also be dead).

13. When final grades go up, and you’re terrified to even look

You prepare for the worst, and try to squash any hope that you might have pulled out an okay grade. Expecting to fail and getting a “C” is much better than expecting a 4.0 and getting a 1.7…

14. You passed!

All that studying paid off! You worked hard, and you are pleasantly surprised with your high grades. Look’s like you don’t have to look forward to a life of flipping burgers anymore! You’re doing fine :)

College As Told By Junie B. Jones

A tribute to the beloved author Barbara Parks.

The Junie B. Jones series was a big part of my childhood. They were the first chapter books I ever read. On car trips, my mother would entertain my sister and me by purchasing a new Junie B. Jones book and reading it to us. My favorite part about the books then, and still, are how funny they are. Junie B. takes things very literally, and her (mis)adventures are hilarious. A lot of children's authors tend to write for children and parents in their books to keep the attention of both parties. Barbara Park, the author of the Junie B. Jones series, did just that. This is why many things Junie B. said in Kindergarten could be applied to her experiences in college, as shown here.

When Junie B. introduces herself hundreds of times during orientation week:

“My name is Junie B. Jones. The B stands for Beatrice. Except I don't like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 1)

When she goes to her first college career fair:

"Yeah, only guess what? I never even heard of that dumb word careers before. And so I won't know what the heck we're talking about." (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 2)

When she thinks people in class are gossiping about her:

“They whispered to each other for a real long time. Also, they kept looking at me. And they wouldn't even stop." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When someone asks her about the library:

“It's where the books are. And guess what? Books are my very favorite things in the whole world!" (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 27)

When she doesn't know what she's eating at the caf:

“I peeked inside the bread. I stared and stared for a real long time. 'Cause I didn't actually recognize the meat, that's why. Finally, I ate it anyway. It was tasty...whatever it was." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When she gets bored during class:

“I drew a sausage patty on my arm. Only that wasn't even an assignment." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 18)

When she considers dropping out:

“Maybe someday I will just be the Boss of Cookies instead!" (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 76)

When her friends invite her to the lake for Labor Day:

“GOOD NEWS! I CAN COME TO THE LAKE WITH YOU, I BELIEVE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 17)

When her professor never enters grades on time:

“I rolled my eyes way up to the sky." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 38)

When her friends won't stop poking her on Facebook:


“Do not poke me one more time, and I mean it." (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 7)

When she finds out she got a bad test grade:

“Then my eyes got a little bit wet. I wasn't crying, though." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 17)

When she isn't allowed to have a pet on campus but really wants one:

“FISH STICK! I NAMED HIM FISH STICK BECAUSE HE'S A FISH STICK, OF COURSE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 59)

When she has to walk across campus in the dark:

“There's no such thing as monsters. There's no such thing as monsters." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 12)

When her boyfriend breaks her heart:

“I am a bachelorette. A bachelorette is when your boyfriend named Ricardo dumps you at recess. Only I wasn't actually expecting that terrible trouble." (Junie B. Jones Is (almost) a Flower Girl, p. 1)

When she paints her first canvas:


"And painting is the funnest thing I love!" (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 61)

When her sorority takes stacked pictures:

“The biggie kids stand in the back. And the shortie kids stand in the front. I am a shortie kid. Only that is nothing to be ashamed of." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 7)

When she's had enough of the caf's food:

“Want to bake a lemon pie? A lemon pie would be fun, don't you think?" (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed p. 34)

When she forgets about an exam:

“Speechless is when your mouth can't speech." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 54)

When she finds out she has enough credits to graduate:

“A DIPLOMA! A DIPLOMA! I WILL LOVE A DIPLOMA!" (Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl p. 6)

When she gets home from college:

"IT'S ME! IT'S JUNIE B. JONES! I'M HOME FROM MY SCHOOL!" (Junie B. Jones and some Sneaky Peaky Spying p. 20)

The 7 Best Food Places Near UCLA You Need to Try ASAP

We have great dining food AND restaurants around us? Wow, we are #blessed.

Westwood is the home to UCLA and offers plenty of interesting and diverse dining options for students and locals alike. Since the area is firmly Bruin territory, you will find lots of on-the-go, affordable eats along with a mix of more modern and upscale restaurants.

Though I definitely haven't had all the food Westwood occurs, being here two years now (omg already!?), I think I can safely recommend certain places to eat.

1. Shamshiri Grill

South Westwood Boulevard is often referred to as Little Tehran, so most of that area is just Persian restaurants. Shamshiri Grill just makes the best meat and whenever I go there, I always order my meal with their special hot sauce, that is to DIE for. A must try.

2. Gushi

I can not tell you how many times I've been to this place. Located near Fat Sal's, you may be tempted to just miss it but let me tell you that is a mistake. I always get their Gushi Bowl which is just heavenly and the right amount to make me feel satisfied without being too filling. Be generous with the Teriyaki and Sriracha sauces on your meat and you are guaranteed to have a good time.

3. Pinches Tacos

I know Mexican food is very common wherever you go but Pinches Tacos is aesthetically pleasing and their food? Even more so. It just tastes so good! I definitely recommend the Asada fries and any tacos.

4. Saffron and Rose

Saffron and Rose is a Persian ice cream parlor like 10 minutes away from Shamshiri Grill and the quality and variety of ice cream is truly impressive. I would not have known my weakness for Jasmine ice cream if I hadn't tried this place and as always, the Saffron and Rose (it's namesake) deserves to be the name of the restaurant because of how rich in flavor it is.

5. Maharaja

I am very particular about my Indian food but the buffets in the afternoons at Maharaja definitely passes my checklist. I actually went there for my birthday so that just tells you how the food doesn't disappoint.

6. Nekter Juice Bar

I found out about this place very recently and I'm so glad I did because their bowls are so good. They also serve smoothies which I haven't had the pleasure to taste yet but I expect the same kind of quality. I am very partial to the Bruin Bowl and the Dragonfruit Bowl.

7. BJs

They have $3 Pizookies on Tuesday.

I am always there on Tuesday.

Are these two facts connected? Maybe.

What can I say? I just love the restaurants here.
