Lemme guess its exam time right? And the tears are flowing more then when Appstate was crushed by Miami circa 2016 (rip). Thankfully, I’m about to tell you the 10 best places to cry when you feel like you just can’t anymore!
1. Dorm Room
So, this one doesn’t really need an explanation (and if you live off campus refer to the other nine on this list.) Hopefully you and your roommate have grown close enough to have group crying session (invite your whole floor, these can be therapeutic)
2. The Bookstore
If you go into the bookstore there are a few small window where you can hide your tears in a book your pretending to read and won’t buy because they cost $40.
3. The Crying Couch
Don’t quote me on this, but I have heard tale of a crying couch in Rankin Science. Only the desperate have found it so good luck!
4. The Whitewater Cafe
This is a small little longue in the PSU near McAllisters that is usually fairly empty (unless there is a performance going on). There are a lot of comfy chairs and its dark so even if there are people they might not be able to see your tears.
5. State Farm Lot
Sketchy as this place is, it’s a great place to be alone. If you need to cry just duck beside someone’s car, or better yet if you park here just get in your own.
6. The Elevator in Garwood
For those of you who have never taken a Chemistry, Astronomy, or Physics class, THIS IS THE SLOWEST ELEVATOR OF ALL TIME. AND ITS TERRIFYING. Just thinking about the noises it makes are you go up is enough to make anyone cry. But the fact that is elevator is so slow makes it a good place to shed a few tears if you needed.
7. The Backroom of the PSU Computer Lab
Privately referred to as “the office” because besides exam week there is rarely anyone an here. Also there are a lot of big computers to hide your face (and to drown your sorrows in some Netflix).
8. The AppalCart
Listen, the drivers aren’t going to judge you. You could probably ask a lot of them for advice. And if you need to cry, just catch the teal route around 8 pm (no one is going to be on the bus.)
9. Study rooms in the Library (if you can get one)
Just take some fake books and a laptop in there to cry and no one is going to bother you. And even if you are in there crying and people see they will understand. This is exam week. THIS IS STRESS.
10. IN CLASS
I mean ultimately you professor are probably used to this. They know you’re stressed so to cry in front of them isn’t going to surprise them. And better yet, you are surrounded by the people who understand your exam stress better then anyone. So sit back, relax, and make sure to bring enough tissues for everyone! Happy crying!

Hello! I am a nerdy, quirky, energetic, and barely sleeping sophomore at Appalachian State University studying Cell/Molecular Biology because apparently, I enjoy death. After college, I hope to pursue a career in the medical field by attending either Medical or PA School. I also enjoy being a Chemistry Lab TA, a University Tutor, President of a Community Service organization that also happens to watch Disney Movies, proud member of both the Appalachian Musical Theater Club and New Life, an on campus church group, a certified EMT and lifeguard, an AppolCorp, and a Society19 Blogger! When I can possibly find any free time, I enjoy playing Mario Kart with my roommates, baking cupcakes and cookies, playing the ukulele, watching Stranger Things and Haters Back Off on Netflix, and reading books over and over again. I did theater for ten years of my life and went to a performing arts high school, so I know more theater knowledge and trivia then any human should possibly know. I'm extremely clumsy, and uncoordinated, yet I think I should hike and climb rocks, so it's a miracle I haven't died yet while living in Boone. Hope you enjoy!
