Curing the Final’s Blues.

As the end of the semester is near, everyone is in the inevitable black hole that is project week, finals week, midterms the last week of classes?, presentations, discussions, etc. To escape this terrible abyss, here are a few tips to slowly see the light at the end of the tunnel. We can do it!1) Decorate your room for the holidays- while this may only take a few minutes out of your day, it will make you feel so much better when you are up at 5 a.m. putting the finishing touches on your final paper and you are being lit my multi-colored string lights. Trust me, I might know. While I probably wouldn’t encourage decking the halls to any extremes, a few strands of lights and some ornaments does a person good.2) Sip- Whether it’s a trip to Starbucks, DD, or the dining hall, sipping on one of your favorite holiday beverages is sure to ease your stress a little bit. I would always recommend a Caramel Brulee Latte from Starbucks or a hot chocolate and Starbucks Red Cups could even put a little cheer in the Grinch!

3) Shop- Nothing makes me feel better than finding the perfect Christmas gift for someone that I love. Even if you just spend ten minutes in the library shopping online, it is a welcome distraction from studying for finals. You might even find some things to add to your own list too!

4) Sing- No one can say that singing a few Christmas carols doesn’t make them feel a little better! I definitely do not recommend this one if you are in the library thought as I don’t think it would be super popular. Just turn on your favorite Christmas Pandora station and relax for a while preferably in a spot where your roommates or neighbors won’t Scrooge you.

5) Deck the Technology!- Download a few (or all if you’re me) of the wallpapers that Karoline made for the Holidays and add some festivity to your phone or laptop. That way when you are sitting and staring at your screen for endless amounts of time, at least it is a little more cheerful!
