Little Things To Survive Finals Week

Monday, December 2, 2013

For me it is finals week (or finals week for two weeks *technically*) and I was a bit of a stress muffin until I sat down and organized the next two weeks of the semester (also known as the end of the semester *praise*). Finals week is commonly known for students getting lack of sleep, their social life goes out the window *wave goodbye*, and they most likely run out the house somehow one of the days still in their pajamas as they think #yolo.

And I am thinking to myself what I am doing this year for finals and I am doing a lot of things differently.

Here are some of my survival items.

1. Coffee, it doesnt matter what form it comes in if it smells like coffee and tastes like coffee I will drink *alot* of it.
2. Flannel Mens Shirts, (okay), my friend Kayla is basically a secret hipster (it's a thing), and she tends to find comfty ways to dress while still looking cute. This Black Friday (after I woke up late), we hit the mall and I found a mens flannel shirt at GAP and I honestly think I may live in it for the rest of finals. You can make this shirt super girly too if you wanted to go out in it.
3. Colorful pens, they are so helpful when I am trying to prioritize what I need to get done.
4. Lists and my planner....duh!
5. Post it notes (because they are addicting and I love them). Helpful sticky peices of paper are the absolute best.
6. My iPhone timer, I occasionally get carried away with one subject (or I take too long of a break), so I set timers on my iphone for study times and break times (it's super helpful and the breaks are super rewarding)
7. Candles: they are super relaxing and they make study time smell good.
8. My Camelbak water bottle: I need to make sure I stay hydrated and this buddy is huge and it doesn't leak all over the place *win*

There are so many other things that help me during finals week but this is what's on my finals week radar as of right now. Also a positive attitude never killed anyone either.
