Hint: They All Deliver!

5 Study Snacks To Get You Through Finals Season
Jessie Granader

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Decorations radiate from every street corner, holiday music can be heard from miles away, and a fresh blanket of snow makes the world seem happier. Life is full of magic and bliss, well, for everyone except college students. With holiday cheer comes finals season, the most stressful few weeks of the semester. Students lock themselves in the library for hours on end, attempting to cram as much information into their minds as possible before exams begin. The only thing to look forward to during those painful hours are the meals that break up the day. However, it’s too cold to walk all the way across campus in search of delicious food. What places deliver straight to the library you may ask? Here are five yummy places in Ann Arbor that bring the food to you, ones that will keep you motivated and focused throughout the day.

1. Fleetwood Diner

It’s early in the morning, and you’re already sitting in a cubicle at the library. What will motivate you to start that 10 page paper due on Monday? A greasy omelet from the diner, of course. In the mood for a warm stack of chocolate chip pancakes? You’re in luck, because the menu satisfies all cravings. Although Fleetwood is a car ride away, the diner delivers right to the library! It’s the perfect way to fill that empty stomach and get energized for the long day that awaits.

2. Salads Up

Lunch time! It’s three hours in to studying, and your tummy is grumbling again. You need something nice and light to refuel, however, a meal that won’t put you into a tiresome food coma. Luckily, a customized chopped salad will do the trick. A quick pick me up snack that will both give your mind a break, and keep you going through the afternoon!

3. Espresso Royale

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to have an extra-large coffee brought right to your study space. However, Espresso Royale is right in the center of campus, and across the street from wherever you decide to work. There is only so much studying one can do before their eyes begin to close, exhausted from sitting in the same spot for so long. Getting up and moving around is the perfect way to give your mind a rest and reboot with a refreshing drink!

4. Pizza House

It’s getting late. It’s dark outside, the temperature is dropping, and your starting to dread the cold walk back to your dorm later. Your mind is about to explode, and its defiantly time for comfort food to keep you nice and toasty. Devouring warm cheesy bread, chicken fingers, and french fries is the only way to get through that final push of studying.

5. Insomnia Cookies

Congrats, the day is done! Now it’s time to celebrate with some scrumptious sweets. Order a box of cookies right to your dorm room because, simply put, you deserve it. Picture it now: 6 freshly baked cookies that break at the touch. How could one say no to that?! Good luck to all, and have a healthy, happy, and hungry finals season!

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
