11 Types Of Students You'll Encounter During Finals

11 Types Of Students You'll Encounter During Finals Week

Some of us fall into multiple categories, whether we want to admit it or not.


During finals week, all students may appear to feel and act roughly the same, but the truth is, there tends to be a huge difference between various students.

1. The Crammer

The one who slacked off more than they should've all semester and now they're regretting it. They thought, "Oh, I don't need to study, I'll just go out with my friends! Who needs homework?"

We've all been that person at one point. Do not yell at or shame the crammer because they're already stressed enough.

2. The Organized

Students who are not The Organized are always highly impressed by The Organized, who has color-coded notes, all of their stuff in order, and a case full of sharp pencils.

3. The Procrastinator 

The Procrastinator is similar to The Crammer, except they haven't started cramming yet and no one knows when they will. The Procrastinator keeps claiming that they will eventually study, but no one knows if that's true or not.

4. The Emotional

The Emotional is stressed out and cries or snaps at the drop of a hat. However, The Emotional is also likely to get EXTREMELY happy and excited when the material that they're studying finally makes sense.

5. The "Whatever"

No offense to any "whatevers" reading this, but sometimes, the rest of us wonder why you're even in college. The Whatever tends to really not care what sort of grades they get. Maybe they're just faking, or maybe it truly doesn't matter to them.

6. The Surprisingly Calm

The Surprisingly Calm is not stressing out and freaking out like everyone else is, or at least not openly. Sometimes, The Surprisingly Calm is confident and ready to roll; sometimes, they're not and they've merely accepted their fate.

7. The Restless

The Restless never sleeps during finals week, nor do they ever take breaks. They'll probably neglect their needs and forget how to take care of themselves. Then, after finals, all of that will catch up to them.

8. The Cryptic

No matter how much you see The Cryptic around campus normally, they'll disappear and become one with the shadows during exams. Other students will rarely see them, due to The Cryptic's week-long status as a hermit.

9. The Genius

The Genius may or may not overwork themselves during finals week, but the result is always the same: excellent grades. If you take up The Genius as a study partner, you'll be blown away by how they much they know. What's their secret?

10. The Overwhelmed

The Overwhelmed is a hybrid of The Crammer and The Restless. They are beyond stressed, and it is best to give them space until they've taken all of their exams.

11. The "Wait, it's finals week?"

This is the person who skipped class all semester and truly had no idea of the date. Don't confuse them with The Whatever; The Whatever knows it's finals week but doesn't care. The "Wait, what?" student didn't know, and they probably care once they find out and thus become The Crammer.

That, or they do indeed become The Whatever.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest girl in the world.


My brother and his wife recently blessed our family with the sweetest bundle of joy on planet earth. OK, I may be a little bias but I believe it to be completely true. I have never been baby crazy, but this sweet-cheeked angel is the only exception. I am at an age where I do not want children yet, but being able to love on my nephew like he is my own is so satisfying.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a very protective person.

From making sure the car seat is strapped in properly before every trip, to watching baby boy breathe while he sleeps, you'll never meet someone, besides mommy and daddy of course, who is more concerned with the safety of that little person than me.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her a miniature best friend.

There is something about an aunt that is so fun. An aunt is a person you go to when you think you're in trouble or when you want something mom and dad said you couldn't have. An aunt is someone who takes you to get ice cream and play in the park to cool down after having a temper tantrum. I can't wait to be the one he runs to.

When you make a girl an aunt, she gets to skip on the difficulty of disciplining.

Being an aunt means you get to be fun. Not to say I wouldn't correct my nephew if he were behaving poorly, but for the most part, I get to giggle and play and leave the hard stuff for my brother.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her the best listening ears.

As of right now I only listen to the sweet coos and hungry cries but I am fully prepared to listen to all the problems in his life in the future.

By the time my nephew needs advice, hopefully, I will have all of my life lessons perfected into relatable stories.

Anything you do in life sweet boy, I will be cheering you on. I already know you are going to do great things.

When you make a girl an aunt, she learns what true love is.

The love I have for my nephew is so pure. Its the love that is just there. I don't have to choose to show love every day, I don't have to forgive, I don't have to worry if it is reciprocated, it is just there.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest person in the world.

I cannot wait to watch my precious nephew grow into the amazing person that I know he is going to be.

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
