10 Thoughts Every Student Has During Finals Week

Finals week is the end all, be all of the semester. Every student dreads them — and we've all thought these things as we prepared for the toughest week of the semester.

Here are 10 thoughts you probably had during finals.

1. Why study during Dead Week? I'll start studying the weekend before finals actually start.

We did in fact need to start studying during Dead Week. Cramming the night before was not it chief.

2. What is the lowest I can make on this final to pass?

We've all calculated our grades the night before the final to see what the lowest grade we could make is, without it messing up our grade in the class so far, and we ended up not very impressed with the score.

3. I'm going to bed early every night this week!

By going to bed early we mean sitting on our phones for an hour or two under the covers, so we don't have to study.

4. Let's all study together for the final!

By study together, we really mean go over all of the material, agree that none of us know what is happening, accept our fates and try to figure out what is going to happen when we walk into the exam.

5. I really hope this is not a cumulative test... 

If this thought has ever crossed your mind walking into an exam... it probably was in-fact a cumulative exam over all of the materials covered this semester.

6. I'm going to pull an all nighter and study for the harder exams!

After three energy drinks and a cup of coffee earlier in the day — by midnight you feel on top of the world, that is until you miss your alarm the next morning because you only went to bed three hours before it was set to go off, and you still did not cover all the material for the final.

7. I'm going to take a study break and go get food with my friends. 

First, you get food, then you go to the mall and walk around and procrastinate, and then, you spend money you don't have as part of retail therapy to cope with the stress of finals week.

8. I should really do that extra credit now.

There are those few extra credit points that some professors let you turn in up until the day of the final, and the days leading up to the test are usually the perfect time to do those, especially if you know you are going to need them.

9. That was the hardest test of my life.

Everyone's said this coming out of their final, just to turn around and say it again the next day after the next final. They're all hard. They're all terrible. Welcome to college.

10. Now that finals are done I can finally sleep!

Sleep is the one thing that students look forward to the most after finals end. Our parents do not understand why we sleep past noon every day for a week when we get home. The answer is always finals week.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
