Your Favorite Cartoon Family Explains The Terrors That Are Finals Week


Finals - (n) death by examination

Finals week - (n) the one week in the semester where study breaks are totally necessary, panic attacks come by the dozen, and you start to realize that you never actually learned any of the material

As the semester nears an end, finals are just around the corner and we've got a little bit of a love/hate relationship with them. We love finals because not far behind them, the end of the semester always tags along. However, we hate them because no matter how ready you think you are, you're usually not actually ready. Finals week has been described as "the worst week of a college student's life," typically involving all nighters, attempts to reverse months of slacking, lots of stress and very little sleep. Us college students like to think of our "finals week abilities" sort of like a superpower that only comes out in times of great desperation. Here are a few times when the Griffin family perfectly described your finals week experience.

When you think about how soon finals are, and how unprepared you are.

When all of your friends are already done for the semester and are on summer vacation, but you still have 4 finals to take.

Can you say 24 hour study hours?

When your grades have gotten so bad that your final exam grade is the only thing keeping you afloat.

But no matter how hard you try...

...Your efforts seem futile.

When you're up all night studying, hopped up on caffeine.

When someone is trying to teach you something that you just don't understand.

When you're trying to be responsible, but it's the end of the semester and you can't even find a pencil anymore.

When you think you're prepared, but you walk into the exam and forget every single thing you have ever known.

When you did it right. You know you did it right. You're positive you did it right. Except you didn't.

After an exam when you walk out into the hallway and everyone is talking about their answers and you didn't get anything that they got.

When you somehow managed to do way better than you thought you were going to.

When the class average on an exam was really high, but you did really bad.

So though it can be trying, and though it may seem like there is no end in sight- I promise, there is. And it's closer than you think! There is a light at the end of the tunnel, you do have a future, and you will make it through. Keep your head up, stay positive, study hard and good luck on finals!

6 Signs You're Experiencing The Infamous Sophomore Slump

Stress goes up, excitement goes down.

As the end of my sophomore year in college is now in sight, I've begun to take a look back on this year and how utterly strange it has been. I've recently found a term that perfectly describes everything I've felt from this year in just two words: Sophomore Slump. This term has been coined to describe a,

"Period of developmental confusion where students may face difficulties in academic, social, and personal development. In addition, after the novelties of college social life have worn off, nothing seems quite as special."

I've definitely experienced this feeling this year, and although I find myself still enjoying college, the stresses have seemed to increase while the excitement has simultaneously worn off. If you're suffering through the Sophomore Slump as well, you might be able to relate to these tell-tale signs.

1. You went from going out every weekend to adopting a sleep schedule similar to your grandparents.

Freshman year, every weekend was full of constant opportunities for parties. You waited your whole life for the true college experience, and last year you went a little too hard. Now, you're making up for it by spending your weekends reading, sleeping and most importantly, binging the latest Netflix original special.

2. Frat parties are yesterday’s news.

I still remember the excitement leading up to frat parties during my freshman year, especially for tailgates. Now, if I ever even do go out, I prefer a house party with people I actually enjoy being around.

3. You begin questioning whether your major is right for you…and is it too late now?

Is my major the right one for me? I'm already too far in! I can't back out now! Sophomore year is basically a giant ball of stress and quarter-life crises.

4. You enjoy feeling more like an adult, but you miss the innocence of being a freshman.

As a freshman, you were still naive to adult life, and while that had its own problems, sometimes you miss being the new kid on campus with a whole world of opportunities ahead of you.

5. Somehow, if it’s even possible, your procrastination has gotten even worse.

If you thought last year was bad...

6. And you still find yourself in a constant state of denial.

It's fine, I'm fine, everything's fine.
