17 Thoughts Everyone Has While Studying for Finals

Finals week is almost here, which means it’s time to gear up for those all-nighters and midnight food runs. Since you’re already procrastinating on that paper you have to write, check out these 17 thoughts everyone has while studying for finals! 

1. Okay, let’s do this thing. I’m totally going to ace these exams.

2. Why doesn’t any of this material sound familiar?

3. I probably should have bought the book.

4. Wait, this exam is cumulative?!

5. I’m going to drown my stress in food.

6. Is it possible to overdose on caffeine?

7. All-nighters are overrated.

8. At what point would it be socially acceptable to sleep in the library?

9. Maybe if I stare at this blank screen long enough, this 10-page paper will write itself. 

10. I need a nap. A week-long nap.

11. Is this what dying feels like?

12. If I don’t take a break soon, my head is going to explode. 

13. I’ll just watch one episode on Netflix. And scroll through Twitter for a bit, and check Instagram, and look at puppy gifs on Tumblr…

14. There’s no way I can be expected to wear real pants this week.

15. I think I forgot how to study. 

16. What’s the lowest grade I can get on this exam to still pass the class?

17. I hope my future spouse is rich, because I give up.
