Stages of Caffeine Overdose During Finals Week

Starbucks, Dunkin’, or home-brewed, a little coffee goes a long way while studying for finals. I think I speak for a large majority of students everywhere when I say I’ve been through many of these “stages” of caffeine overdose.

Ugh all this studying is making me tired.

Okay, I just need one cup.

Coffee time!


Okay just one more cup.


Did someone say coffee?

Hmmm I haven’t tried that new drink yet.

Just one more, I promise.

Wooo I could stay up all night!

Is the world buzzing or is that just me?

Coffee sweats… psht nothing phases me.

*Looks in mirror* whoah my eyes are dilated.

20 bathroom breaks later…

Caffeine crash.
