17 Things that NDC Students Know To Be True (Finals Edition)

'Twas the week of my finals...

17 Things that NDC Students Know To Be True (Finals Edition)
Ana Plumlee

I'm a list maker. I have a wall devoted to post-it notes that are all lists of things I'm thinking about or things I have to do. Finals week is not a time when I stop making lists, because list making is not a game. So, here's a list of things that I find that NDC students know to be true during finals week of fall semester.

  1. They take 24-hour quiet hours very seriously. Like conduct hearing and a fine if you violate them seriously.
  2. If you thought that 8:30 classes were early, just wait til your final starts at 8:15.
  3. Sweatpants and hoodies are your best friend.
  4. You will do a lot of crying.
  5. You will order a lot of pizza.
  6. You will do anything to get energy. Energy drinks are preferred.
  7. You will pull at least 3 all-nighters during finals week.
  8. Anger is the default emotion. And you will get irrationally angry at everyone at some point.
  9. Junk food is your best friend.
  10. You will have a mental breakdown at one point.
  11. You will fall asleep while studying.
  12. You will sing parodies of songs to describe finals week feels.
  13. Christmas is torture.
  14. You will sleep any chance you get.
  15. Everything will make you cry.
  16. Netflix, lots of Netflix.
  17. Everyone is religious and believes in God during finals...they want to pass!

Dating A 'Type-A' Girl

You have probably been asked before if you were a Type-A or Type-B personality. People who are considered to be "Type A" tend to be impatient, competitive and ambitious.

There isn't much that is going to stress them out.
