With finals comes the dreaded week before where you have to go to class even though it's pointless because you don't actually go over anything important. On top of this, you're supposed to start studying, but it never goes how you want it to. Instead, it looks something like this:

You realize you haven't done a single thing all semester...

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F05%2F6358488383367232521072939986_dead%2520inside.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=161&h=d9ecfcd04b6a117a76a6fbcc3668f1a040b4fd33be30b21889d4754dce545918&size=980x&c=1146266061 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F05%252F6358488383367232521072939986_dead%252520inside.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D161%26h%3Dd9ecfcd04b6a117a76a6fbcc3668f1a040b4fd33be30b21889d4754dce545918%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1146266061%22%7D" expand=1]

But you tell yourself that everything is going to be okay.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F05%2F635848836020972080-456576244_beyonice.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=575&h=38697058580d4dad5e4c67c35670c299ec3822b317c3fb4cfcd0c4cfbf89e818&size=980x&c=2964197628 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F05%252F635848836020972080-456576244_beyonice.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D575%26h%3D38697058580d4dad5e4c67c35670c299ec3822b317c3fb4cfcd0c4cfbf89e818%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2964197628%22%7D" expand=1]

Until you realize the amount of stuff you actually have to get done.

Thankfully, the professor says that the final is not cumulative...

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F05%2F635848828840137971-1066347403_yes.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=111&h=740039230a776e9bff82a23b777f96f4857d2c82b56f968a708e317759d922b6&size=980x&c=4083149315 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F05%252F635848828840137971-1066347403_yes.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D111%26h%3D740039230a776e9bff82a23b777f96f4857d2c82b56f968a708e317759d922b6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4083149315%22%7D" expand=1]

But you still don't understand a single thing because you've been mentally checked-out for the past month.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F05%2F6358488336066719212098039918_explain_like_im_five_office.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=735&h=3a98783fa18830cd454008282f996d1933488243751c0d6c494fbd1d211e5e39&size=980x&c=2828422209 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F05%252F6358488336066719212098039918_explain_like_im_five_office.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D735%26h%3D3a98783fa18830cd454008282f996d1933488243751c0d6c494fbd1d211e5e39%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2828422209%22%7D" expand=1]

You're feeling confident after the first all-nighter...

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F05%2F635848840151334897874879571_smart.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=265&h=ae9b3e96426b05b8696bc56716d178afd8734fc15c34b818b90326250bac1b7a&size=980x&c=1472528287 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F05%252F635848840151334897874879571_smart.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D265%26h%3Dae9b3e96426b05b8696bc56716d178afd8734fc15c34b818b90326250bac1b7a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1472528287%22%7D" expand=1]

But things aren't looking as hot the second night around...

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F12%2F05%2F635848840573266828-1911543127_this%2520stinks.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=975&h=8181074f28ff18896873a14d90c16f559519f151f588e7a973afa16f59513ee3&size=980x&c=4275706469 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F12%252F05%252F635848840573266828-1911543127_this%252520stinks.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D975%26h%3D8181074f28ff18896873a14d90c16f559519f151f588e7a973afa16f59513ee3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4275706469%22%7D" expand=1]

Yet you still prioritize going to the last party before you actually have to buckle down.

Since it's Christmas time, everyone is drinking Peppermint Schnapps when you get there...

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
