Finals week is a nationwide dilemma all college students face once the semester comes to a finish. It can be exciting to think of at times when one thinks of all the delicious food waiting at home, the endless bucket list of to-dos with friends and a full four months of freedom to just do nothing for a change. But thinking about finals too much can lead to the opposite effect. For colleges, finals week is the sign of the end. That end of what? For some, the end of the semester. For others, the end of classes. But for most students, it is mostly the end of restful nights, Netflix binging, good grades and possibly the world. With that, I give you 20 thoughts of students during finals week.
