When did I eat last? Have I showered at all this week? Do I have time to take a nap tonight or should I pull another all nighter studying?
These are just a few of the questions running through every college kids head during the dreaded “Finals Week.” As a college student trying to cram everything in this last week I can attest to any of the above questions. With two group projects, four papers, and an individual project all due within the next week and five exams to follow it can get a little overwhelming to think about.
The home stretch of the school year is one that everyone looks forward to. For the seniors they get to move on to a new step in life, for everyone else it is one step closer to finishing their degree. For Juniors, you made it to the final leg of college – Senior year. For Sophomores, you’re half way done! And for Freshman, you finished your first year of college; you probably faced some major difficulties and some crazy changes, but you made it.
It’s important to know how to handle everything going on at the same time. This blog post gives a good list on how to stay on top of things, even though it’s related to one class I found it helpful to consider it for all the classes especially during the stressful time of finals.
Although this time is full of lack of food, sleep, and cleanliness; it is also full of a lot of success and an ending to another wonderful semester. So no matter what went on throughout the semester, it’s coming to an end, so enjoy the time you have left. Along with some studying. Oh and perhaps after reading this go take that shower you need and then get some food because we all know you need it.
