Surviving Finals Season

This is very, very important to all college students.

I really shouldn’t even be writing this right now as I’ve got two MASSIVE papers with drafts due tonight. So my first piece of advice is NOT to blog on due days.

My second piece of advice is to read and reread all emails from professors VERY carefully, especially if you have them for more than one class.

You don’t want to turn in a paper late because you’re exhausted and you’re brain’s fried. Keep very close track of all due dates and their shifts and changes.

Get sleep.

Make sure you buy things you need before you get to the scary part of the semester, because you won’t have time to shop for things like note cards and razor blades and you’ll either have to do without or get someone to shop for you.

And most importantly, don’t forget that even if you don’t get an A, life will go on.
