8 Things To Do After The Stress Of Finals Week

Key tip: start putting yourself first after those four months of overwhelming stress.


Finals week, as we know, is one of the most stressful weeks of the year. Here are a few ways to de-stress after months of hard work and studying.

1. Apply the most "boujee" face mask.

Treat yourself to a fancy face mask because after the chaos of finals week, we know your skin needs a little love.

2. Last minutes Christmas shopping (and maybe spoil yourself a little).

To me, there is nothing better than blowing off the stress that was finals week than a little bit of retail therapy. The best part is, you also get your Christmas shopping done!

3. Do some baking.

Even if your pastries, cookies, or cake do not turn out to look like the picture, it makes for some good laughs.

4. Laugh with your friends.

It is better than screaming about how stressed you are/were. Laugh so hard that you cry! It'll be very cathartic, I promise.

5. Get up to date on your favorite Youtuber's vlogmas series.

I have put off watching everyone's vlogmas because of finals so if you need me, I will be watching them until I am all caught up.

6. Go on a day trip with your best friend(s).

Even if you do not even have a destination, it is always fun to jam out to Hannah Montana and The Jonas Brothers. In all honesty, is there any other road trip playlist?

7. Watch your favorite movie.

I highly suggest the "Harry Potter" series after a long finals week.

8. Sleep, sleep, and more sleep.

Let's face it, we probably did not get much sleep during finals week. Treat yourself to have eight hour nap!

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
