SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
Summer is drawing near, and school is coming to an end. But instead of celebrating the so-close-I-can-taste-it freedom, I’m stuck in the library like many of my fellow students. If you’re like me, you’ve already considered jumping head first out the library window several times, or joining a traveling circus, never to be seen or heard from again.
So here are some ways to avoid doing those things.
Tips to stay (kind of) sane during finals week:
Break up your work. Don’t leave it all for the night before, because cramming hardly works, and last minute papers always come out shitty. Try to tackle one big thing per day.
Take study breaks. And not stupid ones like 5-minute intervals outside the library. Go do something fun for an hour or two. During my study breaks I like to read SumoSkinny or go to the gym.
More study break ideas: watch a movie, eat something delicious, or take out your study frustration the good old fashioned way: have a little sex.
Don’t forget to eat. I know many people forget this simple step in their day due to being cracked on study drugs, but it’s super important. Drink too.
Call your mom. Seriously. She hasn’t heard from you in weeks.
Get some sun. It’s the easiest way to get a little natural high.
Try to stay calm. If you don’t ace your finals it’s not the end of the world. And if you fail, make sure you’re checking your parent’s mailbox religiously until your grades get mailed home.
