Spring semester is like when you’re on a road trip and you’re craving a nice burger joint and the only place for miles is Burger King; you’re going to inevitably eat at Burger King, but it’s going to suck ass. Even though we have spring break, Shower Cap, and G-Day to look forward to, there just isn’t anything quite like the game days and festivities that come with the fall semester. The Black Sheep thought it would be a good idea to try and brighten your day with some Netflix movies that describe the spring semester.
12.) Gone In 60 Seconds:
This title is my answer for when my parents ask, “so what happened to your GPA?” This also answer the question, “where is my will to live?”
11.) I Hate Valentine’s Day:
Boo Valentine’s Day. If you’re in a relationship, do us all a favor and stay in and watch Netflix and order pizza, or better yet, drag your SO to see 50 Shades Darker. We don’t need to see all that super cute, cringe worthy stuff; we get enough of that on Insta.
10.) Ferris Bueller’s Day Off:
This instant classic really captures what it’s like to have, well, a day off. We are all Ferris, just trying to live in the moment and bask in the glory that is not leaving your bed all day.
9.) A Royal Night Out:
Obviously there are some occasions where us UGA students get rowdy. The few occasions like Shower Cap and Twilight make for a truly royal night on the town.
8.) White Chicks:
UGA, just like many other schools, has white chicks, but the spring semester really brings out the paleness since pool days are not as frequent; that is of course, until spring break happens.
7.) How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days:
This title seems accurate enough for those poor girls that can’t seem to lose that clinger they found on Tinder. When ghosting him doesn’t work, just refer to the Hollywood version of how to get rid of him.
This one is for those that have just decided to start paying attention in week 5 of classes. Not even Paul Rudd can save you now!
Although you may not be as creepy as Jake Gyllenhaal in the movie, you damn sure will be just as greasy and probably smelly after an all-nighter writing that paper that was due last week.
4.) Minimalism: A Documentary About The Important Things:
This documentary was clearly made by a UGA student. For when you’re in that “fuck it” mindset that comes about halfway through spring semester, minimalism will help you realize you could do the job, but why not just half-ass it?
It’s starting to become a reality that you need to get your shit together if you’re gonna pass your classes. With the odds against you, it’s time to hunker down in the MLC and hit the books in an all out battle.
2.) There Will Be Blood:
At some point in the spring semester, you will realize that you maybe should have given a little more effort early on. Now, it’s too late to salvage that GPA, so you’re ready to explain it to your parents and you better believe there will be blood.
1.) Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story Of The National Lampoon:
All in all, these four words epitomize the spring semester. There are ups as well as downs, but at the end of it all, we’re dead.
Well, it’s clear that the spring semester sure isn’t like the fall semester at UGA, but there are definitely some things to look forward to. Of course, there’s spring break so that we can escape Athens for a week, there’s Shower Cap, which is basically a big ass party downtown, and we can’t forget about G-Day, Twilight, and all the other cool stuff going on. Just try to force yourself through all the lame stuff like classwork and no football; you’ll be fine.
