5 Things To Not To Do During Finals

Don't do these things unless you wanna fail finals. Or, if that's your plan, then do these things!

5 Things To Not To Do During Finals

Finals week is coming up, so it's time to hunker down and try not to have panic attacks that last the entire week. Here are some things not to do during finals.

1. Don't Watch Netflix for Hours

Not a good idea. It's okay to reward yourself wait a couple episodes of your favorite show, but try not to start a new show because you're going to end up binging the whole season instead of studying.

2. Don't Study With People Who Will Distract You

Studying with other people can be great and help you remember things you've forgotten. However, if you have a friend you know will get you off track, don't study with them. One minute you're studying neurotransmitters, the next you're arguing who would win in a fight, Nightwing or Red Hood (for the record, I say Nightwing, but I'm biased).

3. Don't Study the Night Before

Some people can do this and do it pretty well. However, studying the night before doesn't help unless you're really good at memorization. Study over the course of the week for a few hours at a time. It makes a big difference.

4. Don't Party

Seriously, just don't. Party after finals are over. You don't wanna be hungover for your final.

5. Don't Panic

Breath--it's almost over. Take deep breaths, pet some of those therapy dogs the college brings in, and head over to counseling for your anxiety and stress. You can get through this.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
