You Know It's Finals Week When...

by - Friday, December 12, 2014

1. I fall asleep on top of my textbooks and wake up thinking maybe I learned something through osmosis.

2. I'm living on a steady diet of cereal and foods that come out of my freezer. Who has time to make real food when I could be studying? And at least it's better than the steady diet of raw cookie dough I used to subsist on during finals week in college.

3. I'm desperate to get out of the house to go for a run, but don't want to sacrifice the time it really takes, so I run around the block twice and call it a day.

4. I skip a Terps basketball game in favor of studying. (I died inside a little bit Wednesday night, but did put the game on mute in the background.)

5. I ignore pretty much all phone calls and text messages because I just can't be bothered.

Oh finals week, something I definitely haven't missed since college.

It's been a high stress, low sleep kind of week for me and I'm so looking forward to Saturday afternoon when I'm officially on winter break.

  1. I don't miss the days of locking myself in an empty room in Somerset and cramming for organic chemistry for a week straight! Okay, maybe it's not "cramming" if you're studying for a week. But you get my point...

    Congrats on finishing your first semester!
