Finals Week Journal of Emotions

Yes, yes we get it – finals week is ending which means we probably should’ve spent the week studying instead of surfing online. This was the week that sparked the widest range of emotions – one minute you can be utterly bored, the next in tears. After one rollercoaster of a week, Spring Break is the sweet relief. But during finals, we all have emotions that can get out of hand. This means the average college student’s journal might look a little something like this:

Saturday 10:31 am

Ugh finals! I’m completely dreading this. 

Saturday 2:54 pm

Okay, I think I can do this. I’m determined to pass this class and I only need a 112% on the final. 


Sunday 12:20 pm

Time to get motivated and get down to business. This is so easy, look at me speeding through this. 


Sunday 4:12 pm

Okay, now it’s getting really overwhelming

Sunday 8:54 pm

This is taking way too long. Can’t focus, need social media. 

Monday 9:02 am

This is starting to feel pointless. Should I just give up

Monday 3:17 pm

This is too much work. Should I change my major? Time to call my mom and cry

Monday 9:41 pm

But there’s so much left to do. I feel like I’m being crushed from the inside, slowly. 

Tuesday 2:11 am

Then all of a sudden you hate professors for making the test cumulative, yourself for not studying sooner, and science for not inventing knowledge osmosis. 

Tuesday 9:38 am

Then at some point…nonchalance

Tuesday 12:09 pm

Your brain is just dead, dull, and overworked. 

Tuesday 1:56 pm

You just hang on to one last hope. 

Good luck Bruins!!
