It's that time again friends... FINALS WEEK. The dreaded time in which every college student questions everything they've worked so hard for the entire semester. Can I pass? Is the debt it worth it? Will I survive the week?! The important thing to remember during this week is- YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! 
I have put together a list of 10 songs that ever-so-vividly describe the many stages we go through during finals week. Heres how- 

  1. Your professor decided to assign a project due on Sunday of finals week. Not just any project either. A project thats worth 200 points and will take away no less than three hours of your study time. How could you be so HEARTLESS prof?!
  2. It's the Saturday night before finals week, and all your friends decide to go out, but you have the biggest exam of the week on Monday and you've barely studied, so you stay in. During your study breaks you check Snapchat and see that ALL YOUR FRIENDS ARE WASTED, and you hate this dorm room, man you study too much. 
  3. After watching your friend's sloppy Snapchats, you decide to take a walk down the hallway to get your blood flowing again. You realize that only you and the shy kid in room 305 stayed in. All you can think is... I'M SO LOOOONNNEELLLYYY! 
  4. Once your pity party ends, you get a gust of energy and tell yourself it's go time! IT'S ME AGAINST THE WORLD and nobody can stop me now!!! ...except maybe a snack break. 
  5. After that glorious snack break, you decide to calculate exactly how many questions you need to get right on the exams in  order to get the grade you want in the class. You slowly realize that what you need is nearly impossible and beg your grades to STAY WITH ME!!! Please!?
  6. It's finally here.. the biggest final of the semester... you get the exam packet and after reading the first question you realize that you're royally f*cked. You look at the kid next to you, you both shrug, look at the professor and in your mind you beg them to SAY SOMETHING because this has got to be a prank. 
  7. It's now time for your foreign language final thaaaaat.... you definitely did not study for. At this point you've given up and are searching your brain for any word that sounds even remotely Spanish. All of a sudden you hear it. "She call me Mr. BOOMBASTIC. Say me FANTASTIC." Good enough, right?
  8. It's now Friday. The only people left on campus are basically zombies. You sit down at the last final on your schedule and take a look around the room. Faintly in the background, MAD WORLD starts playing. You're scared, but know it'll all be over soon. 
  9. The exam started 25 minutes ago and people are already getting up to turn in their scantrons. You wonder how they could possibly be finished already, until one of them walks past your seat on the way out and you watch a single tear fall from their cheek. ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST on this one. 
  10. Well, you have successfully(?) made it through another finals week. As you turn in your last exam, the death is lifted from your body and you have your life back again. You get back to your room to check what you got on your finals from earlier in the week only to find out that you've failed. You're too happy for summer, but possibly depressed because you have to re-take that course. You're BLUE!

Friends, don't let finals get to you too hard. You'll make it through. We all will. But we definitely all question our lives at one time or another during the process. Good luck and happy studying! I'll see you on the other side!
