Finals Week As Told By Community

We're not the only ones who need to pass exams.

Finals Week As Told By Community

Finals just in general: Emotions are just all over the place with students staying up late and not getting enough sleep to students stressing over back to back exams in the same day.

Realizing how much procrastination you have done the entire semester: It happens to the best of us, and it's time to realize that you left those 5 online quizzes to be due at the last possible second.

Drinking coffee with extra expresso the night before your early morning exam-

-But getting that 10 page paper done: I had to get extra expresso in my coffee to keep me awake until 5 AM to read a book and write a ten page paper that I procrastinated on in order to turn it in on time.

Opening your books for the first time this semester: Although I have never done it, I saw a guy sitting in the Johnson Center opening the plastic wrap of one of his books the Sunday before finals week. Good luck to him.

Trying to study last minute: It is always good to cover the basics.

Taking a study break: I know I need these, especially to throwbacks.

Walking into your exam like: After a good few nights of studying, there's that confident feeling -

-But then seeing the first question: I know I cannot be the only one who has looked at the first question and said to myself, "God help me."

When the person next to you flips to the next page and you're still on question three: It gives you that anxiety that you're behind and need to stop spending so much time on reading the options for question three.

And then your professor gives you that five minute mark: I hate and love being reminded of how much time I have left. Hate it because I know I'm slow at taking tests, but love it because I know I need to finish, and fast.

Seeing a question word for word on the exam from the study guide: Such a reassuring feeling to see familiar territory.

Misreading the date of the exam: I've only done this once, and let me tell you, it is not fun. Be prepared to drop everything and pay attention to that subject for a while.

Stepping out of the room after you finish your exam: After all that studying, you are finally free and it is time to just let it all out.

Knowing you and your friend passed the exam: Knowing you passed is always a great feeling but being able to celebrate with your friend is even better.

When all you want to do is think of the Holidays: My parents are sending me picture of the house being decorated and the tree with lights, and I just have to sit in my room and study.

But most impertinent one of all, getting through finals and the semester with your friends

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
