Preparing for Finals Week

Preparing for Finals Week

The dreaded time is almost here, finals week. Among the numerous tests and projects that we slave over during the week of finals, to the end of the semester, we have to think about packing up and saying goodbye to campus for our fabulous summer break. On top of that, we try to balance having jobs and saying 'see you later' to our college companions. So going into these last couple weeks of the semester, let's stay on top of our college game, so that we can enjoy these last few weeks!


1. Look ahead

Knowing what day your tests and projects are due is critical. You might be able to get started on a project now and not have to worry about it in the upcoming weeks. Getting things done ahead of time is a lot better then staying up all hours of the night during finals week to finish them. You might even have a little extra time to have some fun! Look ahead at what is due and you may find that you DO have a final in that class is worth it!

2. Packing up

Start packing up the things that you aren't using, like your winter clothes or shoes you won't be wearing. This will help with the stress at the end of the year, when it's the last thing you want to do! Planning ahead with what you're going to wear will help too. Keep your favorite sweatpants and sweatshirts out, but pack away the warmer ones you won't be needing. Go through your cleaning supplies and toiletries, and see if there's anything you can start throwing away.

3. Get organized

Start your gameplay now! Get out your calendar and start marking every single thing you will be doing for the next couple of weeks, because your life is about to get a lot busier. Make sure to make time for lunch dates with friends, and study time in the library as well. Put your work schedule and finals times in there also, just so you don't forget about the important stuff! Start printing out rubrics for your projects and buying supplies early.

4. Time for friends

Get your last girls nights in, because the clock is ticking! Plan a night a week to either study together, or go grab dinner at the dining center (saving money)! During finals week, you will all be so swamped and everyone will be on different schedules, so make these plans before time gets away from you all!

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.

Standard.net

Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.
