3 Ways To Destress Before Finals Season

Unfortunately, it is that time of year again. Finals are here and the stress that they bring is never slight of catastrophic to a college student who is barely holding it together anyway.

Enjoy the World Beyond Your Computer Screen

College campuses are beautiful, especially in the springtime. Taking a break from hours of studying to read a book of leisure on the front lawn or simply taking a relaxing walk around campus can help you come back to your work in a better place. This can even have positive impacts on your mental health and your level of effectiveness in regards to your studying.

Go Out With Friends

More than likely, your friends are also self-destructing as finals season closes in on universities all over the globe. No one can function efficiently once they are burnt out; this is applicable to you and your friends alike despite how many all-nighters you pull that might attempt to convince you otherwise. Spend time with one another and take a break from continuously looking over notes and quizlets, everyone will be grateful that you did.


Such simple advice but it has wondrous effects on everyone. Whether you want to watch a John Mulaney sketch or call your dad who always knows how to get a giggle out of you, just laugh and allow yourself to relax for a bit.

Finals are a rough time for everyone, but we all need to take time to relax and love one another during this stressful time.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
