What to Expect: Finals Edition

5 things to expect this finals season!

1. Prepare to be stressed but don’t let it consume you:

With finals right around the corner it’s easy to be pre-stressed about studying and passing. It is a stressful time. However, don’t let that stress consume you. You can handle anything that comes your way.   


2. Caffeine or die:

Pick your poison. Coffee, energy drinks or five shots of espresso. As long as it keeps your eyes open, it’s good. 

3. Sleep is for the weak:

This week you might have to sacrifice a couple of hours of beauty sleep. But that’s okay because we really want our degree ladies. 


4. Comfy clothes only:

I am a firm believer in wearing your comfiest clothes to the library (You will be there for a while.) 

5. Study effectively, don’t cram:

Trying to get a semesters worth of lessons memorized in a day isn’t fun. Pre-plan your study days. Figure out how much time you need to accurately cover the material. 

Believe in yourself. You are an amazingly smart person. You earned a spot at the university, you deserve to be here. You can do this.
