12 Thoughts All Procrastinators Have During Finals Week

It's the week before finals week. It's the time to stress out. We all worry about passing our classes saying goodbye to friends and packing according to school rules so no one gets fined. There's a lot going on. This time of year we always feel the same way. We collectively think about dropping out and changing career paths to something easier. College is hard but we're in it for the long run. We are all unbreakable; we're just a little lazy.

Here are 12 more distractions to stop you from doing that assignment:

1. Trying to get motivated

That moment you're lying in bed thinking through everything you have to do and not wanting to do any of it so you continue to lay there.

2. Justifying your work

When your roommate walks in and asks you what you've done today, they then proceed to give you a look of disapproval for only making your bed which you once again ruined by lying in it.

3. Begging your prof for a higher grade

Going to your professor, that you hardly talked to all semester, and trying to ask for bonus points.

4. Checking your grades

When you finally sit down and do the math, to see what grade you need on your final to pass this class.

5. When you finally start studying

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F23%2F636285529778662244-1801864222_200.webp%2337-grid7&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=469&h=50f6761c19699e9701c5e2031fe2e3890f164af9ae3c13c764d9238e7e0ad447&size=980x&c=3019624309 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F23%252F636285529778662244-1801864222_200.webp%252337-grid7%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D469%26h%3D50f6761c19699e9701c5e2031fe2e3890f164af9ae3c13c764d9238e7e0ad447%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3019624309%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Finally succumbing to the pile of work you need to do and remaining optimistic even though you know absolutely nothing but you just started and have a long way to go.

6. Thinking about adulthood

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F23%2F636285530131334161-1827194375_200.webp%2345-grid7&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=781&h=8842e0bcd2c336cdb18a7c0a53490bf030f99d47f734c69a0cbb703b0a477c85&size=980x&c=1002526337 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F23%252F636285530131334161-1827194375_200.webp%252345-grid7%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D781%26h%3D8842e0bcd2c336cdb18a7c0a53490bf030f99d47f734c69a0cbb703b0a477c85%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1002526337%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Hitting that wall where you wish you were 5 again and didn't have to worry about studying and packing and bills.

7. Thinking back on the semester

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F23%2F6362855307107585471819107029_200.webp%2358-grid7&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=334&h=c2665b01e0d324a43e849e211bf66d07ef49bdcedc909f029453b7e8d546ac14&size=980x&c=2398874611 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F23%252F6362855307107585471819107029_200.webp%252358-grid7%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D334%26h%3Dc2665b01e0d324a43e849e211bf66d07ef49bdcedc909f029453b7e8d546ac14%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2398874611%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

People will ask you why didn't you study earlier or learn this info when it was first taught, this is what you say.

8. When you start studying

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F23%2F636285531332499041-344296990_200.webp%2360-grid7&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=696&h=0b1384a694e4684830270f628ae9736ee5640a0e522c4fb3f384732a38949e89&size=980x&c=1728850046 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F23%252F636285531332499041-344296990_200.webp%252360-grid7%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D696%26h%3D0b1384a694e4684830270f628ae9736ee5640a0e522c4fb3f384732a38949e89%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1728850046%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Finally cracking down and listening to that one friend that is a good student and will help you study.

9. Actually understanding the material

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F23%2F636285534208046451639720175_200.webp%23128-grid7&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=931&h=d162900bef4cde55385ab8cc8ca8caf5df460e62bb94ee43028b4c63f3cb51f0&size=980x&c=183754756 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F23%252F636285534208046451639720175_200.webp%2523128-grid7%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D931%26h%3Dd162900bef4cde55385ab8cc8ca8caf5df460e62bb94ee43028b4c63f3cb51f0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D183754756%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Finally getting something right. You still might not understand it but at least you did it.

10. The night before that one final

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F23%2F6362855310463859861525875658_200.webp%2362-grid7&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=12&h=930955354ae8bbebfb87e68a55a1a07f3e5eb11d91862cc26c16937826d3b761&size=980x&c=2782256603 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F23%252F6362855310463859861525875658_200.webp%252362-grid7%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D12%26h%3D930955354ae8bbebfb87e68a55a1a07f3e5eb11d91862cc26c16937826d3b761%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2782256603%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

The final cram before the most important final of the semester.

11. Walking into your final

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F23%2F636285532161956610829694650_200.webp%2387-grid7&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=709&h=0a6fedccb120b3c1428c83dd04d286af931b323f89788b6fdc6d1c567a1291a8&size=980x&c=3370206208 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F23%252F636285532161956610829694650_200.webp%252387-grid7%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D709%26h%3D0a6fedccb120b3c1428c83dd04d286af931b323f89788b6fdc6d1c567a1291a8%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3370206208%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

When you are 100% ready to take this final and never see that class again.

12. Leaving your final

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F23%2F636285533054338710-1628618259_200.webp%23115-grid7&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=30&h=d1905ac4e5ab8c0a3c33c27003f77a48fab329c6e2dd8931b849c4b5c90b15a1&size=980x&c=2870120512 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F23%252F636285533054338710-1628618259_200.webp%2523115-grid7%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D30%26h%3Dd1905ac4e5ab8c0a3c33c27003f77a48fab329c6e2dd8931b849c4b5c90b15a1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2870120512%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

It was a long journey but you made it and everything is done. You passed that class and that's all that's important.

It's the final stretch and we can make it. It'll be a struggle but it's manageable, plus we have done it before so let's get out there. Maybe Binge watch the new season of Kimmy Schmidt coming out and finish strong. For all the procrastinators out there, I believe in you, now go start some assignment to actually say you did something today.
