Guys, it’s actually happening. The newness is wearing off, the tiredness is settling in, campus doesn’t feel that big anymore, and exams are actually a thing now. The realization that, wait, we’re not on a no-parents-allowed temporary romp into adulthood, and that responsibility is actually a thing that exists — it’s rough after almost a month of dining-hall-chocolate-chip-cookie-fueled, wide-eyed, naive excitement to fall into an actual routine of taking out the trash and doing laundry and maintaining deadlines and studying. Bleh.

And not because of tumblr, or cat videos, or rage against humanity for the Miss America 2014 /twitter debacle, or even the Doctor Who 50th anniversary speculations (Whovians unite!), but because of the horror known to all pre-med freshman called “Gen Chem 1.” Seriously, does anyone feel ready for that exam?
