We have 2 days of no class to study. That’s a whole 48 hours of freedom. And I spend at least 36 of those hours complaining about having to study... instead of studying. This is my life:
Friend: Do you want to go to lunch?
Me: No!! I have to study, what are you thinking?
*gets on twitter*
*Tweets* OMG I have so much to study! #nosleep #nolife #4.0 #helpppppp #ineedschleep
*gets on Instagram*
*post quote* “Life is hard, but finals are harder”
Lol I literally waste more time talking about finals, than preparing for them! If I would just sit and actually read my book, life would be easier. But we just can’t do that now can we? The week before finals is like the hunger games. We race into the library and fight for a seat! And when we’ve all gone over 30 hours with no sleep, showers, or nourishment we unite with peace signs in the air. Complain about how finals suck,and then get over it. You have work to do. May the curve ever be in your favor….
*yells ratchetly* Road Tripppppp! I have a wandering, traveler soul. No seriously, It's my soul. Sometimes during test week I just twirl in a circle because I can't sit still. I’m constantly searching for “adventures”; that are really escape routes. But this bad habit get worst around finals. It’s more dangerous because I’m pulling all-nighters. My lack of seep mixed with my lack of common sense becomes my downfall. During finals you lose track of time. And sometimes I forget that random trips to the lake are unsafe at 3am. *tinker bell shrieks* Finals are stressful. You feel like everything is on the line, and if you fail then you’re failure. It’s ok to want an escape, it’s ok to escape and clear your head. But eventually you’re going to have to face life. Get lost for a while to find your sanity, just make sure you jump back into reality.
During finals I become the friendliest, unfriendly person ever! Lol there’s something about having to study that makes me actually want to talk to other people…so I do. I wander around the library basement and ask people about their lives. There’s something about the stress of avoiding failure that bonds us all. We all look homeless, sad, and desperate. And it’s that desperation that makes us stick together, its like a superglue made out of tears. So for the next week we are all friends!
There’s something about stress that makes you want to eat. But not just ramen noddle, hot pocket meals. We’ve had a semester full of that, so we’re ready for the real thing. I cook 4-cousre gourmet meals during finals week. No seriously, me and Rachel Ray become besties! Lol I pull out that crockpot and go at it. The only person that’s really happy about this is bae! I will do anything to avoid studying…and that includes being domestic. *face palms into a sigh*
During finals I suddenly want to become an expert on everything...except the class I’m taking. I use dead days to catch up on current events, research Greek mythology, and strengthen my political views. Guys....I real life attempted to become the next great thinker last semester. I thought I was just it! *snaps in Z formation* I fill my head with a bunch of useless information. *sighs* #ineedtogetmylife I feel like it’s because the subject I’m studying scares me, so I want to win at something. We all just want to win.
This week I looked up what Tai Chi was. Yes…..i’m trying to find my zen *twirls* The stress of tests are getting to me, so i’m getting my yoga girl on! Lol Finals are stressful, so sometimes we need an outlet. Find your Zen before you start studying for finals. Clear your head so that there room for all of the info you’re going to attempt to cram in!
Guys…I transform into inspector gadget/ Harriet the spy during test week! I just have the urge to solve mysteries, and fix issues. Last year before finals, I attempted to build a bookshelf. Me, Amira….Princess of the ask somebody else to do it; tried to build something? #whyyyyy Lol I will do anything to avoid studying, which includes manual labor apparently. It gets bad when I get bored with manual labor, because after manual labor I attempt to solve mysteries. Yes…I waste 3 hours looking for that sock I lost during the second week of school! *face palms* Distraction is the best form of avoidance.
#wahhhhhhh Lol that is all I have to say! Because in a few days I’m going to cry. Once I realize that I’ve wasted days of studying doing steps 1 through 8, tears will fall from my eyes. However, I’m a little excited to cry. Because once I do the cycle of procrastination is over, and I can officially begin to dominate. Let’s be honest, we’re going to procrastinate. We’re going to avoid. We’re going to distract. But then we will conquer, because we have no other choice. Cry, and then get over! *Kanye shrugs*
