It's that time of the semester again where everyone is stressing the f*ck out and nobody knows what's going on. This time, I'm not stressing out though. Yes, I still have a lot of assignments to get done and plenty of studying to do but I know that in the end, I'm going to get it done. In one week, I will be done with my junior year of college and that motivates me to keep on chugging. As the weeks have gotten closer to finals, I have had to take a step back and breathe more than once. Here are some other things that I have found helpful when it comes to trying to relax.

1. Go on an accidental 4-mile hike.

2. Take a drive with the windows down and the music blasting.

3. Watch your favorite movie or tv show.

*cough* *cough* "Game of Thrones"...

4. Drink some wine or tea.

5. Take a bath.

6. Color in a coloring book.

7. Catch up on sleep.

8. Go shopping.

9. Cuddle with your pet or go to Landis and cuddle with someone else's.

10. Clean your apartment.

11. Sing and dance along to your favorite playlist.

12. Workout.

13. Meditate or do yoga.

14. Chill by the pool or go to the Rez.

15. Read poetry.
