Finals Motivation (Ryan Gosling Style)

The week is upon us. In case you haven’t noticed from the blank stares and constantly packed library and lecture halls, finals are here again. I know not all of us can vouch that we attended every lecture or completed all of the reading assigned this semester, but ready of not here they come. For some of you, this week may be the difference between passing or failing, so you better hit the books early. The temptations to go out and have fun with your friends or just sleep in your bed all day (whatever floats your boat) are so alluring, but you can’t give in! If you don’t believe me, I know someone you will believe. Listen closely, ladies.


For those of you who actually were planning on looking cute and spending precious study time on your appearance, you can forget it now. If Ryan loves when you wear yoga pants, who are you to disappoint him?

Whenever you find yourself lying in bed, watching a Christmas movie marathon, on Pinterest for hours or choreographing a new dance (is that just me?), stop it! It’s okay though, Ryan is looking out for you.

Thinking about how easy it would be to go out and have a good night with your friends to blow off steam may bring a tear to your eye. But even Ryan knows a few nights of sacrifice to study are totally worth it.

That all-nighter you’ll be pulling is really going to take its toll on you mentally and emotionally. At least you know you have one person that believes in you, even if you don’t believe in yourself.

If you’re not running to your exam by now, there’s something wrong with you.

Punch them in the face? Do I get extra cuddles for round-house kicking them?

It’s time to get down to business. Everything you’re doing to procrastinate those exams now, you can surely do a week from now. Especially if Ryan Gosling tells you so.   

You heard it here first: Ryan Gosling wants you to pass finals. So get your butt to the library, everybody!
