Ah, finals...every student’s favorite time of the year, also known as hell week. It’s a time when all your teachers decide to test you on everything you may or may not have learned over the semester. A time when your stress increases and your sleep decreases.
Teachers expect you to put their class at the top of your priority list even though you have a million other things to do and worry about. But, we’ve all been there before, and in order to get to where we want to be, we must prove that we can succeed under pressure.
