Across the world students at college are getting ready to finish the semester. They're dreaming of getting to sell their books back for a fourth of the price they paid. But more than that, students are getting ready to go on break. However, before they can get to break they have to deal with finals, and before finals they have to deal with dead week.
1. Putting everything down on a calendar
It feels like you're expected to do assignments for classes you didn't even know you were taking.
2. The easiest tasks must go first
You do the reading for your favorite class and tell yourself it's going to be an easy week.
3. Someone texts you about a project you haven't started
Betrayal, from those closest to you.
4. Midweek slump
There's not enough energy and coffee on the campus for all of the students crashing by this point.
5. First project turned in
You feel accomplished and although it's fleeting, you'll cherish it.
6. Crunch time for all the other projects
You're exhausted, and it's not about to end.
7. The final stretch before finals week
You're ready to be done.
8. Everything is due on one day
Because that seems to be how final projects always work out.
9. One more regular class
Everyone is going through the motions at this point, pre stressed for finals week.
10. It's finally Friday
A false sense of security? Yes. Are you going to take it? Absolutely. Enjoy your Friday because Saturday and Sunday start finals week and you're probably not prepared.
