IT’S FINALS WEEK! IT’S FINALS WEEK! WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN?
If you haven’t noticed, it is finals week at MSU-WP. Students are freaking out, the coffee supply is low, and we are running on little to no sleep. Finals at any campus are a crazy time. You know that schedule that you planned out at the beginning of the semester? That perfect schedule that allowed you to sleep until 9:30 every morning and then work all afternoon? That schedule that was perfect?! Yeah, now it’s a flaming pile of garbage. Now your schedule doesn’t matter even in the slightest. Finals take on a whole new schedule all week. Good-bye routine, hello winging it. For example, my 9:30 class has its final at 8. Yes. 8. AM. And yes, you’re right, I am NOT a morning person. But that’s okay. What is one more obstacle in the wake of finals week?
Aside from having to work with a whole new schedule, finals week isn’t too bad. (It’s actually the worst thing ever.) Just kidding. Yes, finals week is crazy and the only thing that will get you through it is the promise of break at the end, but it’s worth it. It’s like the best reward ever. Yes, you will be drained after finals. However, as long as you stay on top of things all year long, finals won’t be that bad. If you wait until this week or the week before to try and do all of your online homework, you’re going to have an awful time. If you’ve done your homework every week like it’s outlined, this week will be 5 or 6 tests, and that is it. That’s the beauty of finals; there’s no homework, just long, drawn out, studying sessions. Your sole focus is the final. There is no homework to distract; there are no more papers about topics you know nothing about to overpower you.
Finals week is crazy and hectic. But at the end, you will feel like you’ve won a battle. You have conquered those tests, and nothing can take that feeling away from you. You have prepared for this, and you did it. The semester is done, and you can eat your feelings about finals because of all the Christmas goodies lying around. I know that I am so excited to go home for a couple weeks! The food is just a bonus.
So, good luck on finals, and here’s some Kuzco and Pacha to brighten your day! Maybe I should go watch The Emperor’s New Groove..
