Midterm Slump: 8 Signs You've Completely Given Up On This Semester
Do you ever have a moment when you're in school, and you just feel like you're completely done?
Well, you’re not alone.
Yeah, I know it's only October, but there are certain things that make you so fed up with the semester, you don't care anymore.
1. You debate if going to class is really worth it.
Maybe you shouldn’t have ordered Dominos at 1 am last night, but what's done is done.
Now, it's 7:30 am, and you’re in bed, wondering if you can skip your class again.
Sure, you would get to sleep a little longer, but in the long-term, you know you should go to class.
No amount of sleep is worth the amount of work you might have to make up when you're awake.
2. You can only get through the day with a nap.
Naps are sacred for college students.
When you’re on a strict schedule of work, class and eating, you have to be able to schedule in some snooze time.
The same goes for binge-watching "Friday Night Lights" on Netflix.
3. You start using weird objects as utensils.
Maybe using a measuring spoon to eat cereal can be seen as “inventive” or “smart.”
Or maybe, it's just because all your spoons are dirty.
But being completely over this semester means doing the best you can with what you have.
In this case, it's with what you don't have.
4. You make mental notes to respond to emails, but you don’t.
When your professor sends you emails, you care enough to read them, but not enough to respond.
The same goes with Facebook messages, calls from your grandma, texts from your dad, etc.
Mental notes are nowhere near as accurate as actual notes.
5. You have to borrow a pen in every class.
You barely wake up in time for class, so how are you even supposed to remember a pen with all this other stuff going on?
You get bonus points if you remember to bring a notebook.
6. Your laundry basket is overflowing.
Sure, you want to wear that cute skirt you bought over the summer, but you wore it a month ago.
Now, it's at the bottom of your laundry basket, and it would just require so much effort to wash it.
So, what do you do? You wear the same pair of leggings you've been wearing for the past six days and hope nobody notices.
7. You can’t be bothered to go out to parties anymore.
You could shower and put on makeup, or you could hang out in your sweatpants and be a mere two clicks away from "Gossip Girl" reruns.
Which option do you choose?
Either way, you’re just going to be watching people get super drunk.
So, you might as well do it in the comfort of your own home.
8. You go on your laptop to write a paper, and you end up shopping online for four hours.
The paper is probably late anyway. What's a few more hours?
Plus, you know those shoes won't be on sale forever.
