To the students who procrastinate everything,
We've all been there at some point. The lack of motivation, the urge to lay in bed all day and watch Netflix. It usually hit during finals week and disappears when you go home from break.
Now being a responsible college student, one would think that we would have the greatest amount of motivation during finals week. That is never the case. With the cold and lethargy setting in, nobody really wants to do anything.
We've all been working hard for 14 weeks at this point. The end is in sight, but we have to make it through five different exams and papers first. Nobody truly wants to be here at this point.
When a college student puts their mind to it, they can be expert procrastinators. If only they used their procrastinating time to actually accomplish work.
At this point, I've willingly cleaned my bathroom and done laundry in order not to do any work. Anything to avoid sitting at my desk for an absurd amount of time and staring at a textbook.
I understand what it's like to want to procrastinate everything. Then scrambling at the last minute to get everything done and hope it's perfect.
Whoever thought to lump a bunch of exams together at once was a smart idea wasn't thinking clearly. No college student has the time to study for all of these exams at once and do exceptionally well.
We really don't want to study for all of them either. Some are just the third exam of the semester. However, if it's cumulative that's just an evil way to overstress a student out.
Hence why there are half dead students walking around campus. The only thing keeping them alive is Starbucks coffee and the will to see our winter break.
At this point, we're all overtired and stressed and need a good nap and a home-cooked meal. That's the only cure for stressed college students. One week left and then we're all free for two months.
Procrastinating seems like a good idea at the moment, but it's not going to get any of us anywhere. Let's all put the phones down, close out your YouTube tabs and start studying.
We can do it. We can survive the worst of it. Only a few more days of this.
