12 Ways Students Deal With Finals Week

Everyone is different when it comes to studying or not studying.

12 Ways Students Deal With Finals Week

Finals week is coming up and people tend to act a little differently during this time. Some people lock themselves away in the library, while others sleep through exams. Now, some students are better at dealing with exams and papers then others, but which type of student are you?

1. The Perfectionist

The student who tries and tries and can never seem to get it right.

2. The Student Who Seems To Have It All Together

They've been creating study guides and notecards for weeks, and they've even highlighted their textbook and notes.

3. The Student Who Ignores All Responsibilities

This person starts to live in their own little fantasy world as soon as the words "your final exam" are spoken by the professor.

4. The Student Who Forgets How To Study

The student who, throughout the whole semester, got good grades but as soon as the exam study guide is handed out, they are hopeless.

5. The Student Who Sleeps Through Most Of It

Have a friend who you never see during finals week? Either they are intensely studying or they are the student who wakes up only for the exam.

6. The Student Who Runs On Caffeine

You will never see this student without an extra-large coffee or energy drink in their hands. Without their caffeine throughout the day, I fear they would collapse and never be the same.

7. The Library Dweller

They usually are surrounded by empty food containers, open textbooks and their own tears.

8. The Partygoer

I mean why study for final exams when there are a ton of end-of-the-semester parties to go to?

9. The Student Who Tries Interesting Techniques

Who knows, maybe it actually works! Who are we to judge?

10. The Student Who Just Breaks Down

There isn't too much to do for a person once this happens. I would suggest finding some pizza and chocolates fast.

11. The Liar

These students will tell you over and over again that they are okay and that you should not worry about them. Start worrying about them. These friends are almost as dangerous as the ones who break down.

12. The Students Who Take Out Their Stress on Inanimate Objects

As long as they aren't hurting anyone and just their pillow or a wall, eventually they will settle down and get back to studying.

Final exams are hard for everyone, but we all are going through it and we need to stick together. We will all be free soon and have the whole summer vacation ahead of us.

Unless you know, you've got a job, or an internship, or you've graduated and have entered the real world...and on that note, good luck on your finals!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
