How To Make It Through Spring Semester As Told By Leslie Knope

“We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter, but work is third.”

Hey, it’s spring semester and you know what that means. Hell, it means hell. Spring semester always seems to be more difficult than fall semester. The amount of energy you exert to live until spring break and summer drains you. That does not mean we as college students need to exhaust ourselves and whine about how difficult school is. Instead, we are going to pick ourselves up and kick this semester’s butt. Do you know who is going to help motivate us to do so? The one and only, Leslie Knope.

Walk into your first class of syllabus week like:

best day of the year

Leave your last class of syllabus week knowing you’ll kick spring semester’s butt.

make it awesome

When things get stressful, remember to take some time for yourself.

Spring semester may seem more difficult; but, stay strong and remind yourself that you’re awesome.

glorious female warrior

Remember to exercise and don’t succumb to bad eating habits, after all, spring break is right around the corner.

I hate salad

Don’t be afraid to kiss up to your professors. Go to office hours and introduce yourself after class.

I agree with you

It is perfectly fine to have a mental breakdown when things get tough.

Nervous Breakdown

Go to the library if you need to focus on your work (even if Leslie disapproves of libraries).

book jockeys

Eat breakfast before class so you can focus on the lecture instead of your rumbling tummy.

Breakfast food

It’s okay to go out with your friends and have some fun.

Glass of wine

Wear sweatpants to class. Give yourself a break from trying to look perfect every morning.

I hate mondays

Do not pull an all-nighter unless absolutely necessary. You deserve to sleep!

all night work

Find some inspiration for that 10-page essay in your everyday life.

Inspired by myself

Most importantly, remember to show yourself some self-love this semester.

Hey Leslie, It's Leslie

We’re coming for you spring semester!

Do It. Fierce. Power.

As this semester starts, remember to stay perky and outgoing like Leslie. Work to be the best that you can and encourage everyone around you to do their best. If anyone tells you, “you just got jammed,” know that you can overcome it and make the best of the situation. Treat yo ‘self occasionally and throw a Galentine’s Day party with your friends to get away from the stress of school. If Leslie can go from the Parks Department to President of the United States, you can make it through the spring semester. If you need some reassurance, I’ll be here to text you every 30 seconds saying that everything is going to be okay!
