Final season is upon us.
The grades we get on these papers or exams can make or break our grades. This is our final attempt at saving our grades. There is a lot of pressure to do well, because we want to be sucessful. Here is a list of stages everyone goes through when studying for finals.
You tell yourself that you can do this. All your hard work for this semester is finally coming to an end. You have all your notes, books, and tests that will help you do well.
Netflix, social media, and friends all get in the way of your studying. You can't focus. And instead of writing your term paper you're watching Shameless.
3. The Giving Up Stage
Your "breaks" have added up, and you realize you haven't been doing as much work as you would have wanted to.
4. The Freak Out Stage
You tell yourself to stop binge-watching shows and playing stupid games on your phone. It's time to study and focus. You flip open your notebooks and realize you can't even understand your notes, the PowerPoints your professor posted are unhelpful, and you realize you've zoned out during your lectures.
5. The Cramming Stage
24 hours before your first exam. You drink more caffeine in these 24 hours than you have in your entire lifetime. 5-Hour Energy becomes your one and only friend. Whenever you start to fall asleep, you slap yourself in an attempt to wake yourself up.
You realize that it's now time to take your exams and that no amount of last minute studying can help you. In a few years, you won't even remember what grade you got on this test.
