5 Study Breaks To Take During Finals Week

Because finals should be more than just a long date with the library.

5 Study Breaks To Take During Finals Week

Finals week can be an extremely stressful week for students. Taking breaks from loooooongggg dates with Howie T., however, may help make designated study time more productive and efficient. Here are some fun ways to relax, de-stress, and enjoy yourself in the midst of the craziness of finals.

1. Check out a chef cooking demonstration, December 8th-23rd.

Stress eating is a very real thing. So why not take out your finals stress by watching famous chefs create delicious food? Tune in to WWL-TV to catch these televised demonstrations each morning between 8 and 9 am- the perfect pre-library treat! Get the schedule here.

2. Take a holiday tour of New Orleans Homes, December 10th and 11th.

Pricey at $40 for advance tickets, but if you're just as eager as I am to see some elaborate Christmas decorations in gorgeous New Orleans homes, it's totally worth it. It's great study motivation, too, because these homes are going to inspire you to want to do big things with your life. Get more ticket information here.

3. Go to the Pelicans vs. Golden State Warriors, December 13th.

After a long day of studying, why not catch a basketball game? Get your tickets to this 7 pm game here.

4. Nola Christmasfest, December 16-30th.

Bring out your inner child with activities like ice skating, carnival rides, a carousel, and even Santa himself! Get in on the festivities here.

5. Running of the Santas, December 17th.

This festival and pub crawl may not be the most effective study break, but it sure does sound fun. Get tickets to dress up like Santa and get a little silly here.

See, there is more to finals week than just endless library time. Happy studying, and good luck!

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
