The 11 Stages Of Finals Week

The 11 Stages Of Finals Week

Friendly reminder that you have to teach yourself a whole semester in the next few hours


Happy finals week party people! It is that time of the year again where we are forced to become responsible and try to learn something. I'm so sorry you have to deal with the dreaded finals week. I Just want you to know you are not alone and you definitely are not the only one who is procrastinating by reading Odyssey articles.

But since you are, here is a reminder of what the next week will look like for you:

1. After multiple days of procrastination

2. When you finally open the book for the first time.

3. *Three hours later* All you've done is sent memes back and forth to your friends

4. After 10 minutes of actual studying

5. Calculating the lowest grade you can receive on the final to still pass the class.

(you probably worked harder on doing this than actual studying).

6. Once you've actually studied for hours you forget what the outside world looks like

7. When you sit down to take a test and look homeless because you haven't slept in days

8. But then you read the first question....

9. Half way through the test and your brain is in la la land and you have no idea what is going on

10. Walking out the test like..

11. And then once you realize it's actually over

Now at this point finals are over and you have probably told yourself that next time you will do better.

You tell yourself you won't procrastinate.

You say you'll study harder.

You convince yourself that it'll be easier next time because you'll start studying way earlier next time.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

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.

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?
