Why Spring Semester Is The Best Semester

Fall semester is fun, but spring semester flies by.

Why Spring Semester Is The Best Semester

Don’t get me wrong, fall semester is fun, especially if you go to a huge football school like I do. Saturday tailgates are one of my favorite parts of college. Fall semester is also fun because everyone just got back from a long summer break and is excited to party it up in their college town. However, spring semester seems to fly by for me because there is always something to do!

Warmer (and brighter) days.

Spring is right around the corner and the days are getting warmer. Days get increasingly colder during fall semester, which really puts a damper on things. However, when it is warm and sunny, campus is full of life! Students are everywhere and it is awesome! After being cooped up all winter, who wouldn’t want to be outside? Warm days make college so much more enjoyable.

Students actually exist.

During the winter months, finding students is tough since everyone is tucked away in their dorms watching Netflix, escaping the cold. Once the sun comes out though, students are everywhere! All of the Greek organizations fundraise outside of their houses, students play football on the lawn, people are studying in the grass, and everyone is in a better mood! The campus pretty much dies after football season, but comes alive again once the warmer weather comes back.

Dage season.

Or darty season, whichever you prefer. These day time parties complete the college experience. I find them amusing, as half of the students there are skipping class to be there while the other half are enjoying themselves in between their classes… with their backpacks on and all. Professors try not to care when students come to class smelling of the last drink they had. One of my professors even let us out early so we could go dage! Dages are a great way to enjoy the beautiful weather with a cold drink in hand.

Spring Break.

Spring Break usually falls halfway through the semester. It is a week that students take full advantage of for traveling. Spring Break is a great thing to look forward to. Fall semester has short weekend breaks, such as fall break or Thanksgiving. The long winter break lands at the end of the fall semester, so there truly is nothing to get excited about that occurs during the semester. Looking forward to something definitely helps the semester go by super quick! In addition, when you return from Spring Break refreshed and relaxed, the rest of the semester flies by. Before you know it, summer is here!

Better clothing.

Winter means you need to get all bundled up just to walk to class. If your university is anything like mine, your walk is at least ten minutes long. Lugging around your winter clothing all day gets old after a while. I love spring semester because I can throw on a sun dress and head out the door. Let's not forget that I can get a slight tan by just walking to class!

No matter what, each semester has the dreaded midterms and finals. Fall semester is wonderful when football season is in full swing. After football season though, there is really not much to look forward to, minus the holidays. However, spring semester is so cheery once the weather gets nicer. There is so much to look forward to, especially Spring Break! Spring semester goes by so fast, and before I know it, I am laying on the beach enjoying summer break ahead of me.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
