Winter Break As Told BY GIFS (Part I)

Winter Break: the sometimes month long period that college students look forward to all of first semester. You get to take a break from the stresses of college and reward yourself with some needed rest and relaxation, all the while seeing family and high school friends. After a while, though, most students become a little antsy being at home and long to be back at school. Here are GIFs that perfectly show some of the most poignant moments, at least in my experience, from the first part of winter break.

Stage 1: Last Final and Start of Winter Break

1. When your alarm goes off for your last 9 a.m. final and you are forced to get up after going to bed at 5 a.m. cramming for your exam.

2. When you give up on that question you don’t even know how to begin answering, write something completely wrong.

3. When you turn in your last final and realize you are on break for the next month!

Stage 2-- Arriving at Home:

1. When your Mom comes running up to you and tears up while she hugs you for five minutes in the middle of the airport. You don’t mind, though, because you missed her so much.

3. When you finally get into your bed and fall asleep right away because you stayed up till 5 a.m. cramming for the final you had that morning.
