Finals week is approaching and every student is experiencing the same overwhelming stress. Luckily, we can relate to the President of The United States, since we seem to be feeling the same way as he does. It is a simple 5 step process.
1. Starting out confidently with many promises to yourself that you will study extremely hard and succeed.
Donald Trump, like every other politician, started out confidently and made many promises. This is similar to our initial mindset of finals, but we know that these promises in both scenarios will not be kept.
2. Opening up your notes and being shocked by all of the information from September because it looks like a foreign language to you.
We have all experienced this first-hand shock, even Donald at the GOP debates.
3. Taking a quick (5 hour) study break from what you are actually supposed to be doing.
"I'm going to be working for you. I'm not going to have time to go play golf." --Donald J. Trump, August 2016. Since the inauguration he has played golf a total of 64 times, but who is counting? We all need a small break from work.
4. Being in denial and believing that there is still hope that you can do well on your finals.
This gif is his defense of the size of his hands during a debate. Thank you for the reassurance, Donald. It is okay to be in denial, and all of us college students understand your pain. Not necessarily in the hand size aspect, but we are all refusing to face reality about how our finals are actually going to go.
5. Finally, accepting the failure.
There is just no hope, for both this presidency and for our final exams. Pray for the country and pray for our GPAs.
