7 Of The Best Places To Go On UNC's Campus If You Just Really Need To Cry Right Now

Spring break is over, and summer approaches. Summer....and finals.

To maximize the catharsis of every crying episode leading up to finals season, try these iconic campus locations. There's nothing quite like weeping in public to help you overcome stress!

1. Your professor's office

Giphy

It's time to confront the source. If your homework/exams are stressing you out to this point, the professor deserves to suffer, too. Make the rest of the semester awkward—there's not much of it left anyway.

2. The Pit

Giphy

The Pit floods every time it rains (or sprinkles, even) anyway, so your tears won't make much of a difference. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to be serenaded by a pit preacher while you weep.

3. Top of Lenoir

Giphy

The pros are clear: no one will notice you bawling because it's so busy, you can drown your sorrows in Cocoa Puffs, and the CDS workers are nice enough to cheer you up.

Cons? Can't think of any.

4. That weird long room thing on the second floor of Davis

Giphy

If you're a loud crier, you'll fit right in with all the other people there who don't know how to shut up. :)

5. In class, wherever that may be

Giphy

Seminar? Cry. Lecture hall? Cry. Studio? Cry. Lab? Weep.

Maybe your breakdown will reassure other students that they're not the only ones struggling this semester.

6. The Old Well

Giphy

I mean, we have to refill it somehow, right? This university has survived on the tears of stressed-out students for centuries.

Also, if you've been crying for a while you might be dehydrated. Drink some Old Well water—maybe a 4.0 is still possible even if it's not FDOC.

7. On the treadmill right in front of the windows at Rams Head Gym.

Giphy

I mean, it's like you have your own stage up there. Let it all out while you get that cardio in; college is all about learning to multi-task effectively.

If none of these locations does it for you, I also found this alternative list of places to cry on campus if you're just having an all-around personal crisis.

Good luck on end-of-the-semester assignments and final exams, fellow Tar Heels. We're all crying together!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
