Guess what week it is? The worst time to be alive for college students – finals week! Whether you have five finals or one, this post is for you: The hard-working, stressed out, so-over-it college student. Here are my tips for surviving finals week:
Studying is never fun, but it can be better if you’re in a relaxing spot. My personal favorite is the library or outside.
Make sure you have all the books, highlighters & study guides you need! It sucks to get to your study sesh & realize you don’t even have what you need.
3.) Comfy Clothes
I’m talking fuzzy socks, cardigan, leggings, & a bun. Casual, studying-super-hard aesthetic.
Or Starbucks. Or both. I get really hangry & sometimes I need to just keep working & can’t stop to eat so a quick break with a snack can help motivate me to finish.
I listen to my Spotify Coffee Table Jazz & currently, Christmas music! But whatever helps you focus & keeps you relaxed…
Good luck on finals!! And remember, you are more than your GPA 😉
Probably one of my favorite parts about going back to school is shopping for new school supplies (other than buying new clothes which ~hopefully~ I’ll have a post about soon). I love the smell of new pencils & blank paper just waiting to be written all over & smeared with tears (at least in my case!!) It’s so fun to personalize your stuff & pick out your favorite notebook colors. I don’t know about you guys, but it truly gives me more motivation to study when my stuff looks cute! Ya know, so you can take a studious snapchat & then continue to procrastinate… 😉 Anyway, every school is different & I’m in college so my school supplies is honestly limited because a lot of my work is done on my laptop. But I will give you guys a list of what I do have in case you need some inspiration/motivation!
- 3 ring binder, with dividers & folder
- 2 spiral notebooks
- No. 2 pencils
- black pen
- sticky notes
- big eraser
