One of the worst weeks in the academic calendar has finally arrived: midterms. It's a week filled with stress eating, no sleep, and cramming half a semester's worth of work into a couple of days. A bunch of tests are the only thing standing between you and Spring Break, and you feel yourself beginning to crack under the pressure. Don't worry, you're not alone. No one gets the "too much work to do and not enough sleep" feeling better than the doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
When you're comparing midterm schedules with your friends
This is one competition you wouldn't mind losing.
When your professor hands out the review packets
Don't you love looking at the review packet and realizing nothing looks familiar?
"Everything on the test is covered in the review."
They're lying and everybody knows it.
The only time you leave your desk is to get food because you've eaten everything in sight.
When you haven't gotten a single practice problem right
'Twas the night before midterms and everyone's contemplating dropping out.
Coffee has become a food group
This is the week you've been saving your Sodexo Bucks for.
When you have two midterms in one day
You already know you're winging one of them.
How could they do this to you?
When it's 3 AM and you've been studying all night
If you don't know it by now, you're never going to know it.
Walking into your first midterm
It's no big deal, it's only worth 30% of your grade.
Even after all that studying, you don't know the answer to the first question
*Silently prays your professor will curve the grades*
When you finally think you're getting some answers right
Comparing answers post exam.
There's nothing more devastating than when your friends agree the answer was 87 when you answered 6.
When you finish your last midterm
Finally, it's over and you can sleep off this hellish week.
