We all in life have to endure things that are challenging, unwanted, but yet very important. That is a perfect case for describing final exams in college, high school as well. Here at Marquette University finals week has finally wrapped up and now while all the students brave the cold to get home by driving or flight, its more of the calm after the storm for the students as the war with finals has finally come to an end… for now. Here are the top four things to do after coming out of finals week.
The answer by the way is no, constantly checking your grades will not be on this list.
4. Go on a major caffeine detox
It’s no doubt that finals week is a time where sleep is the last thing we are thinking. While not sleeping is no where near healthy, the fact remains we need to use every hour we can to stay awake, energized, and focused to which we turn to caffeinated drinks to help us. Try staying away from caffeine for a week and see how much sleep you get back, if it is easy for you then continue avoiding it, the results may surprise you.
3. Catch up on Netflix
Admit it, during finals week your Netflix account use was nowhere near what it usually is during a regular week of schooling. With any traveling you plan on doing or once you finally settle in take time to relax and catch up on any of the shows you have missed or have heard of and want to give a try. The best part of course being you won’t feel judged finally when Netflix asks you the famous question, “are you still there?”
2. Catch up on your Christmas shopping
It’s pretty easy to lose track of the days when you’re in the process of studying for exams, so it’s pretty easy to forget that the biggest holiday of the year is right around the corner. Simply put try to get your list together of who you want to give a gift to and to get all of your Christmas shopping done and don’t be afraid to get yourself a little something.
1. Sleep, Sleep, Sleep, & Repeat
Obviously the biggest thing you need to do is to catch up on sleeping since you have almost been deprived of it since finals week had begun. Obviously don’t spend your entire Christmas break in bed but its totally understandable to lay in bed a little past noon and not be judged for it. Just make sure during your nap, you spend some time with family, friends, and have a safe and happy holidays.
