11 Thoughts Every College Student Has The Week Before Finals

Everyone knows that finals season is the most dreaded point of the semester.

Not only will you soon have to leave all of your college friends, but there is an inescapable amount of work to do and tests to take. The only comforting thing is knowing that everyone else is going through the same torturous week.

What's worse though are the feelings right before finals week, when you feel your impending doom getting closer and closer and you’re just trying to hold on to everything good.

1. I can put this off until later!

You know what they say, due next week? I’m doing that next week. I will not let these nine chapters of reading keep me down! I have pointless things to do for hours instead.

2. I deserve to go out tonight !

It’s been a hard semester, you know- and there’s not many weekends left to enjoy it. I deserve this punch bowl.

3. I should be watching Netflix

Soon I’ll have no time to watch my shows so logically I should be cramming as many episodes as I can in now to compensate!

4. You haven’t started studying either?

Phew, I thought I was the only one who hasn't opened their textbook once this semester. Makes me feel a little bit less bad about myself.

5. Oh you started studying already?

Oh you already made a study guide? Does this mean I’m a bad person? ...Still not starting anything until next week though.

6. My meal plan is at what?

The semester has taken a severe toll on my on-campus meal plan, it’s probably time to stop getting an iced coffee every day.

7. Have get the most out of that gym membership

Forgot about your gym membership all year? Time to cram in two semesters worth of workouts into two weeks!

8. I think I need a support animal

Those campus events with support dogs are absolutely necessary at these times. I need to look up a schedule or something.

9. Acceptance of failure

“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change….” At this point in the semester, you have a good idea of how hard your final is going to be. You’ve also probably calculated what you need to get on it to get a decent grade in your class.

10. I want to go home

I need my room, I need a good meal, and I need my mom. I also need a good nights sleep.

11. I don’t want to go home

How am I supposed to leave all my favorite people and my favorite place? I'm convinced nobody can make me- even after the dorms close.

Soak up all of the fun that you can for the rest of the semester, finals are on their way to ruin all of that. Just kidding, but don't take your last few days of freedom for granted!

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

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.
