The 12 Days of Finals
Like Success

December has arrived and that means time to bundle and stock up on hot chocolate, slippers, menorahs, trees, dreidels, ham, and so on. But wait, it also means that for college students, the end is near...both in terms of the semester and confidence because of final exams are approaching. Dreaded by a majority of college students, these exams are given because professors have sovereignty over us and will use the power of multiple choice, short answer, and essay to make sure students have gained in the knowledge over the past 3 months and because they just have to.

A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen.

The car is all packed. The money you saved (and didn't spend online) from your summer internship is secured quietly in your bank account. The immediate reunion with your long-distance college friends is set. The real question on everyone's minds is: do you have the perfect melody to jam to as you journey back to school?
