The Top 5 Stresses Of A College Senior As Told By Gilmore Girls

The Top 5 Stresses Of A College Senior As Told By Gilmore Girls

The senior struggle is real.


Senior year is quickly coming to a close. Seriously, where does time go?! Now we enter the few months of chaos before graduation: attempting to finish strong, completing final papers & projects, figuring out post-graduation employment, where to live, when the heck to sleep (or at least power nap) in between all the insanity. Here are some of the top stresses for the typical college senior:

1) What's the least amount of homework I can do and still graduate?

Motivation is often in short supply during the last semester of senior year, but the assignments certainly aren't. Now certainly isn't the time to give up, but the struggle can be oh so real. Freshman year is all about that 4.0, but seniors just want to survive. And hey, "C's get degrees" after all.

2) Sleep or class?

Ah, the never-ending struggle. Whoever said "You can sleep when you're dead" obviously never went to college. Or maybe that's where the saying came from!

3) So, who wants to hire me?

Four years of hard-work what? Landing a job fresh out of college can be rough. Most employers want to hire people with several years of experience, but we can't gain that experience unless they hire us. Such a vicious cycle. But I guess you just have to start somewhere!

4) It's ok to move back home for a while...right?

Hey, no shame! Sometimes it just makes the most sense, especially considering that most college students have a crazy amount of student loans to pay off. Thanks, higher education.

5) School, my life is literally school.

Wake up. Class. Homework (x297237). Eat. Cry. Repeat.

It's definitely at that point where our lives pretty much revolve around everything that's due between now and graduation. A couple months can feel like forever but there is a light at the end of the tunnel, I promise!

If you're a college senior, hang in there! I know it's hard, but try to enjoy these last few months of school because it really will be over before you know it. All the crazy stress won't last forever, even though it may feel like it. Good luck and YOU CAN DO IT!

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
