12 Inspiring Quotes from Your Favorite TV Characters to Survive Finals Season

Prior to college, the holiday season is one of the most exciting moments of the year for a lot of kids. You're making wish-lists of presents, you're looking forward to winter vacation, and you get to be cozy under big blankets with a hot chocolate in one hand and a television remote in the other.

For college students, however, December is one of the most stressful months of the entire year. The paper deadlines you ignored throughout the semester are all on the same day, you have too many final exams approaching, and you have to try to find time to buy your family members gifts for the upcoming holiday.

1. Tom Haverford, Parks & Recreation

2. Mindy Lahiri, The Mindy Project

6. Leslie Knope, Parks & Recreation

11. Bob Kelso, Scrubs


If you want that degree, you have to work for it.

12. Eleanor Shellstrop, The Good Place
