Why not bring some humor into the worst week of college, right?

Top 10 Moments During Finals Week As Told By 'Workaholics'

When three best friends drop out of college, get a house together, and start working at a telemarketing job together, you know that it's always going to be a great time. Blake, Adam, and Anders learn that their transition from being lazy college students to having to set an alarm, actually work, and try not to cry at any inconvenience is very hard. Well, finals week is all of that combined in one week. Trying to learn everything you were supposed to learn the whole semester in one night at the library.

Hearing all the freshmen are complaining to their moms on the phone when walking through the quad

Sorry, freshman. But, this is college!

Realizing your professor says your 72% can't be rounded up to a 90%

Come on, I swear I tried my hardest in your class.

Getting sick because of all the stress

You are too stressed to sleep, so you have black circles around your eyes (darker than a raccoon's eyes). Seeing the first question on the final that your stomach decides that it's competing in the X-Games by doing a 540 triple quad flip.

Feeling sorry for yourself about all the built-up stress and long list of deadlines

Even though you know that you put all of it off to the last second and found out about the projects two months ago, it's still not your fault. Who says it's not okay to pity yourself?

Boosting your own self-confidence for avoiding breakdowns

Hyping your self up is one of the most important steps to avoid those breakdowns and kill those finals! Only cried three times today. Good job — two less than yesterday!

Refusing certain material only to see it in on the final

Saying I won't study these because they won't be on the final. Then, those questions are more than half of the final. We have all been there and regret it immediately.

Faking your through short-answer questions

When you're trying to sound smart, so you use those big words (questionably real ones) on those short-answer questions on that final. You have no idea what you are writing about and bullshitting them is the only way your way through.

Calculating your grade to figure out how well you need to do on the final to stay afloat 

When you go on final grade calculator to figure out the lowest grade you need to get on the final to past the class, you realize you need, like, a 126%.

Dressing like a complete hot mess that you are

You're just don't care that you look like complete crap the whole finals week, but it's actually a fashion statement. So, just let all those people stare. They have been there before. And if they haven't yet, they will have a rude awakening.

Owning the fact that you're absolutely not ready for finals

Guess who is nowhere close to being ready for finals? ME!

Finals is the worst week of college, but we can all do it! Good luck on finals everyone! Most importantly, stay fresh.

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.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.

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.
