A Guide to Coping with Finals

Actually, the title is inaccurate. This guide also works for the weeks approaching finals.

1. Check out 5 or 6 books from the library. Fiction only, and nothing that will ever appear on your syllabi.

2. Play endless levels of *insert game here*

3. Check Facebook. And again.

4. Scroll through the geek and humor boards on Pinterest. Refresh. Repeat.

5. Write a blog post.

6. Chocolate. Always applicable. Preferably Reese’s.

7. Attend brilliant production of Little Women – The Musical. Cry. Feel sappy.

8. Listen to Little Women soundtrack. Repeat.

9. Make snowflakes to hang everywhere. It is impossible to make too many.

10. If you go to any school other than mine, watch your favorite tv shows. All of them. Rewatch.

11. Sleep.

12. Panic about your grades. Refresh the grade reports hourly in hopes that your teachers have posted the grade for that project.

There you have it! A fool-proof guide to coping with the end of school. Let me know how it works out for you. πŸ˜‰

  1. If only I had read this before finals. Great advice, though, especially about the grade panic – I’m constantly checking for my final grades all the time. πŸ˜‰

    • How is it that the last grade posted is always for that class you just had to get a good grade in? I’m horrible about it….when I got home, I went straight to my laptop and checked my grade reports (not in yet, of course….). Hope your semester ended well and you’re getting good rest before it starts all over again!

    • Although my logical side insists that none of my coping methods are effective, I continue to employ them–I’m glad to know I’m not the only one though!!!

      Thankfully, last year’s grade reports were satisfactory. πŸ™‚
