The 7 Stages of Realizing There's Only One Month Until Exams

So, it's November already (even though the snow outside has got us feeling like December).  In less than a month, classes will be out of session and finals will be on their way.  But, how did this happen, collegiettes? 

Sometimes, life moves so fast that we can't reconcile how fast it really is.  It happens to the best of us.  Here are the seven stages every STU collegiette goes through at the beginning of November.

Stage #1: Disbelief

"What?  What do you mean we only have one month left?"

Stage #2: Denial

"Nuh-uh.  There's no way.  Like, it was just September!"

Stage #3: Realization

"Oh my God, no!  I've been slacking on one/two/all of my classes, and now it's almost finals?  I'm going to fail everything!"

Stage #4: Resignation

"You know what, that's totally fine.  I don't care if I pass.  I kind of wanted to spend an extra year at university anyway.  Who needs the real world?"

Stage #5: Determination

"I can turn this around.  As long as I work hard and stop going to Buckets every Friday.  Okay, maybe I'll go to Buckets this Friday.  But that's it."

Stage #6: Acceptance (kind of)

"Alright, I think this is fine.  Um, I mean, at least there's only one month until Christmas, right?"

Stage #7: Surrender

"Four weeks to get 'er done.  Let's just get this over with."
