Nap Everyday And 9 Other Ways To Survive The End Of The School Year Blues

I thought sunshine was supposed to make people happier.

Amanda Tomchick

The end of the school year is never an easy time for college students. Midterms are quickly followed by dead week which is immediately followed by finals. The euphoria of finishing your finals is then crushed by the packing, moving and driving that has to be done.

Are you and your Tuesday night bae staying together this summer?

We're all trying to survive the wave of emotions that is the end of the year.

Here are 18 ways to make the end of the year less awful:

1. Nap everyday

You freaking deserve it! I had a really bad day this week and I decided to assume my true form and hibernate. If I could sleep for 24 hours straight, I would.

2. Blow all of your RDA

If your dining plans don't roll over, blow all of that on yourself. You need to have all of the good snacks.

3. Take advantage of your university gym membership

Anyone who knows me knows that the only reason that I'm stepping foot in UREC is to use the hot tub. But if you don't have access to a gym membership at home, this may be a great way to de-stress.

4. Don't pull an all-nighter

All-nighters always make me feel like sh*t. I recommend avoiding them at all costs. When you have to stay up ridiculously late, sleep in units of 1.5 hours. Trust me, it helps.

5. Buy yourself a new Scentsy scent

It's college, we're all broke and don't have time for self-care Sunday. A new Scentsy scent always makes me happier and lightens my day. The no candle life is too real.

6. Invite your friends who won't be close to you for coffee

Trust me You're going to miss them like crazy. It's hard to stay connected with people hours away.

7. Be crafty AF

I will never forget my first finals week. My friends and I sat around and procrastinated studying by making subpar canvases.

8. Dance like nobody's watching

When in doubt dance it out. However, you may need to put your headphones in because it's quiet nearly everywhere on campus.

9. Get lost and go study

Sometimes all you need is to get out of your comfort zone to focus. There are endless places to study on campus that you've never seen. Find one!

10. If you need a break, ask for one

Yes, your finals are still going to be on the same day. But, I have found that supervisors and professors can be really helpful for when you share what's going on.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
