51 Things To Do Instead Of Studying For Finals
Matt Ragland

It's that time of year where everyone is beginning to start to study for their finals and prepare to leave campus for the summer. If you're like me, you would rather do literally anything else besides studying. There are so many things that you can do to distract yourself from the terrible thing that is studying for finals.

Here are 51 things you could do to avoid studying for your final exams this semester.

1. Drink some coffee

2. Take a shower

3. Eat a snack

4. Watch a new episode on Netflix

5. And then another one

6. Maybe one more

7. Well, may as well finish the whole season

8. Clean your room

9. Do some laundry

10. ACTUALLY clean your room, because we both know that you half-assed it

11. Call your mom

12. Realize that you accidentally talked to your mom for over an hour

13. Go online shopping

14. Regret spending that money

15. Do other homework

16. Calculate how well you have to score on the exam to get a 4.0 in the class 

17. Go get some food (maybe a burrito, that sounds really good)

18. Go on Facebook

19. Refresh your Facebook feed again, in case anything changed in the last 46 seconds
