15 Pep Talks You Need from Blair Waldorf This Finals Season

Let Gossip Girl's resident Queen B give you some tips—because let's be honest, she's so mean that she makes an excellent motivator. 

1. Your professors have ridiculous expectations. 

Five essays due this week?!

2. You don't have to be happy if someone does better than you on a test. 


3. Pull an all-nighter.

Even though you really shouldn't!

4. Dress for success. 


5. Ditch your diet this finals week. 

You deserve that macaroon.

6. Don't forget to take a break. 

They are necessary.

7. And don't forget a quick drink. 

But don't go overboard if you have an exam!

8. Admit the way you feel about finals. 

9. Study for the grade you want, not the one you have. 

And don't give up!

10. Don't let anyone distract you! 

Stay focused.

11. And reward yourself if you do something right. 

Blair would approve of a shopping spree.

12. It's okay to feel lost in your schoolwork. 

As long as you don't get discouraged.

13. Be confident going into that final!

Confidence is key.

14. Stay focused even if you're distracted. 

It'll be worth it later.

15. And celebrate after. 


Happy studying, collegiettes!
