We’re going full-speed-ahead into one of the most stressful times of the school year: finals. It’s that feeling of “I need to drop out” and “I’m going to fail anyway” that’s truly the icing on the cake when you’re already bogged down by work. But there’s also a sweet, sweet victory at the end: winter break. You’re so close, you can almost taste it. Here are the feelings of finals week summarized by Disney!


Phase 1: “Wow, I’m actually on top of my work! I’m going to start studying early and get ahead.”


Phase 2: “Yikes, stuff’s really starting to pile up. But I’m sure I’m fine. Right?”


Phase 3: “RIGHT?!!?”


Phase 4: “Okay, maybe I need to join a study group or something.”

Phase 5: “What do you mean we talked about it in lecture?”


Phase 6: “LOL it’s 2 AM and I give up. Maybe osmosis will work.”


Phase 7: “I’m going to fail and never get into graduate school or even get a bachelor’s degree and maybe I should just drop out but at least it’s not me because grade deflation is real and…”


Phase 8: “Whatever I’m over it. I’m going to bed.”


Phase 9: “Well, it’s the day of the exam. Maybe I should’ve studied just a *tiny* bit more…”


Phase 10: “Funny, I don’t remember going over that once this semester.”


Phase 11: “Yes, it’s over! I don’t even care anymore!”


Phase 12: “Now I get to return all of my textbooks and pack! Wait, what do you mean you won’t buy this edition back?”


Phase 13: “And now to see my family, friends, and pets. I finally get to go home!”


I probably relate to more of these than I would like…well… to the more stressed out, I’m-on-the-verge-of-tears-again ones. I hope you can relate to some of these, too, and realize you aren’t alone in your trek into finals. We’ve got this!
