If you're at URI, you know these struggles!

These are truer now than ever. It's so obvious every time I go to the library I SEE or hear one of these people. Hope you can relate to this!

1. Beats on, watching Netflix

You know who you are, I always see people watching Netflix with either headphones or earbuds on. What's the point of watching it in the library when you can be in your comfy bed instead? Can you study and watch Netflix at the same time? Probably not. I do feel a twinge of anger when I see people using a table that I could've sat at because I'm actually doing work. Altogether, can you watch Netflix in the lounge parts of the library? Because some of us are trying to study.

2. Those who literally live in the study rooms

Sometimes at the end of a long day, I'll take out a study room to review for my tests. I always see the same people in the rooms. It's almost like they camp out an hour before just to get a room. The worst part is when all the rooms are filled, and you can't find a table on the second floor. The third floor is too quiet in my opinion. I move on to find a secluded desk in the back of the library, only to see the lights off in one of the study rooms. Someone was sleeping in the study room...yeah. True story. So yeah, some of you people do live in there and you cannot deny it.

3. The people who are LOUD and aren't shy about it

I know I'm not the only person who this happens to so let me paint a picture of this scenario. Your studying for your big test and Johnny who is sitting behind you is listing his latest workout routine, or Kathy is talking about her latest big problem, and Tom is hoping Kathy never texts him again. No judgment, but I'm just trying to study. Once I hear someone talking, that is all I can hear. All in all please speak quietly for the sake of the people who are really trying to buckle down.

4. The people that create a fortress of whiteboards around their table

Props to the people who can fill two 5-1/2 foot tall whiteboards. They are the ones who are really studying hard. All I can see are organization webs and chronological notes. You can't see the person from any angle because the whiteboard creates coverage all around them. All in all, whoever you are, keep up the good work.

5. The group of people who bring take-out

I envy the people who bring take out, because what's a better reward after studying then Chinese food. But, how could I, the person who didn't bring food, study while the smell of i-Zone, Peking, or Tilly Cheesesteak is wafting in the air? It's like a Friendsgiving as they all offer to share their food with each other. I'm thankful though that they are chewing and not talking so I can get back to my studies.

6. The people who listen to their schoolwork out loud

Buy headphones! Bottom line. There is nothing else I can say except, that is just plain rude. A few weeks back I was in the library and the person at the table across from me was listening to his video reviews out loud. It was not one video, but six videos in total. My friends were making complaints out loud like, "that is so loud" and "wow, I can't even focus." You might think we're dramatic but we were just a little disappointed.

7. The people who are so stressed, and teetering on the edge

Bags under their eyes, unbrushed hair, pajama bottoms, three books open in front of them, coffee in one hand and highlighter in the other. Pulling all-nighters you find these guys in the 24-hour room at all hours of the day and possibly night. Someone needs to tell them that studies prove sleep helps you do better on tests.

Overall, yes I am dramatic. But if you can relate, then you know what I mean.

In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
