Surviving your first finals week is so stressful as a college student - especially as a freshman. People get anxiety due to finals week but what about the people who are trying to survive finals week through their anxiety that have it every day?

To people who struggle with anxiety on a daily basis, here are 9 ways on how to get through finals week.

1. Figure out when all of your finals are and write them down in your planner.

For every single day every week so you don’t forget to study.

2. Make sure you give yourself time to do notecards

And study them.

3. Don’t wait until the week of your exam to make notecards and try and study.

Lesson learned.

4. Your mental health is most important.

Don’t ever put anything over it. If you’re tired, sleep and finish in the morning when you’re refreshed - you’ll be a lot more successful trying to study when you’re not up at 2 AM thinking, “All I want to do is sleep.”

5. Ask for help

It’s okay to ask for help studying. If you’re doing review and don’t understand something, just ask! I know it’s hard sometimes but you’ll do better if you ask.

6. Put the effort into studying.

It makes a difference if you tried to study in comparison to if you didn’t and are just going to “wing it.” College grades are worth a lot.

7. Do good because you want to and for yourself

Don’t do it for other people, strive to do good for yourself so you can be proud of YOU.

8. If you feel your anxiety is getting worse take a break to regain focus and calm down.

9. DO NOT underestimate yourself.

Everyone has their own way of coping with things. People who struggle with anxiety daily constantly think they are wrong and what they are doing isn’t good enough or isn’t what they're supposed to be doing.


To the people out there who struggle with anxiety everyday trying to get through finals week, you can do it, just focus and be determined. You’re not different from everyone else, you just have different struggles than other people.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

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.
