15 Absurd Things I'd Rather Do Than Start The Chaos That Is Finals

I'm not trying to be dramatic or anything, but I would rather get hit by a car than start finals.

15 Absurd Things I'd Rather Do Than Start The Chaos That Is Finals

We did it, college students! We have officially reached the end of the semester and are now plunging into the fiery hell that is finals week - or in some cases, month.

While it is a sign of summer being nearby, there are dozens of stresses that come along with the end of the semester. Quite frankly, I would rather do a whole bunch of other horrid activities than participate in finals week. Here are just a few.

1. Sleep for a month

Me when I get home after the semester ends.

This one is not so awful. Honestly, I would love this. Instead of not sleeping for a month, I vote we all do the opposite.

2. Watch "Avengers: Endgame" three times in a row.

Will I cry the same amount of tears that I would during finals week? Yes, so why not take this route instead.

3. Get a sunburn.

Getting a sunburn means I would be outside rather than inside studying and taking finals. I would much rather suffer the consequences of being outside than failing finals.

4. Jump in the middle of the ocean and encounter a rare, evil-looking fish.

This little thing? Wouldn't phase me.

I'm talking about a fish that looks like the piranha from "Finding Nemo." I wouldn't have enough energy to swim away, so I might as well just let it swallow me.

5. Listen to "Old Town Road" on repeat.

Not the remix. Imagine having to listen to "Old Town Road" without Billy Ray Cyrus. Pure torture.

6. Eat elementary school cafeteria food for the rest of my life.

Those lunches still haunt me, so it says a lot that I would still eat these meals.

7. Spray tan President Donald Trump.

I feel as if this one speaks for itself.

8. Hang out with my middle school bully for a week.

They attempted to be friends with me last year, but I turned them down for obvious reasons. Despite how rude they were to me, I would much rather hate my life for a solid week than stress for a month.

9. "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" every time someone says the word "you".

My arms would get tired so quick, but I would become a pro at this dance.

10. Watch Trisha Paytas sing "Shallow" for ten hours straight.

The video is absolutely iconic and I would love to learn how she sings as *beautiful* as she does.

11. Swap out my entire wardrobe with camo print items.

Me putting on a fashion show with all my new camo wardrobe.

I already have a pair of lucky camo Crocs, so why not add on to my collection?

12. Be body slammed by John Cena.

I wouldn't be able to see him, but I'm sure it would be better than finals.

13. Listen to James Charles sing "Womp womp woooomp" for two hours a day.

Don't get me wrong, I love sister James, but this is not his best sister singing moment. At least if I did watch it every day, I could perfect my impression of him.

14. Shave my head like the icon Britney Spears.

The older I get, the more I understand her desire to suddenly shave her head. Sometimes a haircut is the best way to restart your entire life.

15. Watch the entire "Twilight" series back to back to back without being allowed to make fun of the acting.

Maybe I'll see details I never noticed before, or maybe I will fall asleep. Who knows, but either way I am not doing any work!

Reality is, I know I won't be able to swap out finals for any of these options. These next few weeks may seem never-ending, but it will all be over before we know it. Keep pushing through!

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
