Finals Week As Described By Christmas Songs

Finals Week As Described By Christmas Songs

Do they know it's Christmas? Obviously not.


Finals are coming up. I know, it's scary.

Even though Thanksgiving hasn't passed yet, I have started listening to some light Christmas songs to get myself hyped up. As I was listening to some of the classics, I began thinking about a common theme. Many of these lyrics could describe my life during finals week.

1. When you walk into a final and don't know what you're doing.

"I'm dreaming of a white Christmas..." Yes, you'll be dreaming of that because it will mean that you're not doing this anymore.

2. When you spend an entire night cramming for an exam you know you'll fail.

"Silent night, holy night..." you hear as you sit in the library before they kick you out because it closes at 1:00AM.

3. When your professors assign you random things at the last minute.

"Do they know it's Christmas?" No, they don't. That's why it's F's FOR EVERYONE! YOU GET AN F, YOU GET AN F, EVERYONE GETS AN F!

4. When you wish there was a way to get your grades up.

"Santa baby..." Enough said. Take that as you will.

5. When you look at your GPA and long for Dean's List.

"All I Want for Christmas is You" May Mariah Carey forever be stuck in your head as you attempt the impossible.

6. When you have to leave your room.

"Baby, it's Cold Outside"

7. When all you want to do is lay in your bed and cry.

"Christmas Shoes" If you try to tell me you haven't wanted to cry every time you hear this song, you're lying. Sometimes you just need to break out the sad tunes.

8. When you finally go home.

"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year"

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
