It's the most dreadful time of the year. With teachers still cramming, and students now stressing. Oh no my dear. It's the most dreadful time of the year! This is what is known as dead week but we all know that its not dead week because there are not any assignments to work on and we as students should just be studying and getting ready for finals, oh no its called dead week because as students we are dead from all the assignments and tests we have due the week before finals and meanwhile we are still trying to prepare for finals.

Why in the world would teachers still give us assignments to work on and give us a comprehensive final exam? it doesn't make sense and we are all tired and just want to go home already. It just adds more work for them to get done and I don't see how they would enjoy that. The few hours of sleep that we get is just from doing all the assignments for all the classes because it can never be just for one class. Then we feel even more stressed because now that the week is over and are just now getting started on studying for finals, but now we also have to pack to get ready to leave for Christmas break. The madness going on and the amounts of coffee that are consumed to keep us awake is ridiculous, but there is one thing that we need to make sure to rely on is that God will be there for us during this time of stress and anxiety.

Having the feeling of all that pressure on yourself to get all of the work done is exhausting and can overcome you to cause you to be more stressed than what you need to be. So for sure take care of your self, do not lose hope now because you can make it, and pray that God will provide you with peace and rest because those are the two most important things that are needed in this most dreadful time of the year, but once you get it all accomplished then it will be a time to celebrate and thank God for keeping you rested and not stressed out.

To The Teacher Who Was So Much More

Thank you for everything

I think it's fair to say that most people remember at least one teacher who had a lasting impact on them. I have been incredibly lucky to have several teachers who I will never forget, but one individual takes the cake. So here's to you: thank you for all you have done.

Thank you for teaching me lessons not just in the textbook.

Although you taught a great lecture, class was never just limited to the contents of the course. Debates and somewhat heated conversations would arise between classmates over politics and course material, and you always encouraged open discussion. You embraced the idea of always having an opinion, and always making it be heard, because why waste your voice? You taught me to fight for things I believed in, and to hold my ground in an argument. You taught me to always think of others before doing and speaking. You showed me the power of kindness. Thank you for all the important lessons that may not have been included in the curriculum.

Thank you for believing in me.

Especially in my senior year, you believed in me when other teachers didn't. You showed me just what I could accomplish with a positive and strong attitude. Your unwavering support kept me going, especially when I melted into a puddle of tears weekly in your office. You listened to my stupid complaints, understood my overwhelming stress-induced breakdowns, and told me it was going to be okay. Thank you for always being there for me.

Thank you for inspiring me.

You are the epitome of a role model. Not only are you intelligent and respected, but you have a heart of gold and emit beautiful light where ever you go. You showed me that service to others should not be looked at as a chore, but something to enjoy and find yourself in. And I have found myself in giving back to people, thanks to your spark. Thank you for showing me, and so many students, just how incredible one person can be.

Thank you for changing my life.

Without you, I truly would not be where I am today. As cliche as it sounds, you had such a remarkable impact on me and my outlook on life. Just about a year has passed since my graduation, and I'm grateful to still keep in touch. I hope you understand the impact you have made on me, and on so many other students. You are amazing, and I thank you for all you have done.

Winter Break Is A Scam

Less Magical, More Bore.

Winter break is the biggest scam in the history of the entire world.

Bigger than online shopping. Bigger than weight loss pills. Bigger than any pyramid scheme.

Yes, college is an extremely stressful time for students. The most stressful time of the semester is when exams begin to creep up on you. I'm not talking regular exams, I'm talking midterms and finals.

Midterms sneak up on you before fall break. Midterms differ for everyone. They can stress you out, but they're really a taste of where you currently are in the course. It can be a wake up call to study harder. It can be comforting to know that you are on track. Then, once you're done, you hit break. A small one, but enough time to catch up with friends and family over Thanksgiving.

But then you go back, and crunch time for finals begin. You have a short amount to time to study and remember the course material that will be tested in a paper, practical or multiple hour exam. The stress students have during this amount of time is immense.Meals are missed studying. Sleep is lost to all nighters. Once finals are over and break begins, immense amounts of stress are lifted off of the shoulders of students. Break has begun.

Break is imagined to be magical. All of your time spent with people you haven't seen in ages. Doing whatever you want, whenever you want. Earning money at a job back home to have some spending money for the next semester. All of it, stress free and fun with the added excitement of the holiday season.

But after the holidays, break becomes a bore. You make plans to see everyone from home that you haven't seen in months, but do you actually spend time with them? Days are spent lounging around, missing campus and the friends you had made at school that live too far away to visit. Everything is a bore, and students yearn to go back to school, even if that means starting the cycle of classwork and exams again.

All in all, winter break is magical at first, and then becomes a bore. When it's too long, it becomes the same, sleep in-binge Netflix-go back to bed schedule. It's not as magical as it can seem.
