How to survive finals week!

As the weather gets warmer, this only means one thing: 
Finals week is quickly approaching... dun dun DUN!

Whether this is your first experience of the dreaded college finals week or you are a super senior who is a pro at this, here are some tips from my experience that MIGHT help you survive (no promises tho):

1. DON'T, WHATEVER YOU DO, put things off to the last minute.  
You will definitely regret this.  The procrastination is not worth the extra stress and lack of sleep.

2. Speaking of that, just turn off your internet connections all together 
that way you won't even be tempted to surf 
Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, and other popular sites. 
 (which to be honest we all use waaaaayyy too much haha)

3. Be healthy.  
Get enough sleep, eat healthy foods, and get exercise.  
I think the last thing that you want to do is get sick during finals week.

4. Ask for help. If you don't understand, talk to your professors.  They'll be more than happy to help; that's what they're there for.  Also, form study groups with friends.  It makes learning a lot easier and that way your not learning it all on your own.

5. And last but most importantly, Find some time for yourself.  You've worked very hard this semester, you deserve to treat yourself, whether a Starbuck's drink or an episode of your favorite TV show.

Know that the stress is only for a little while, and that you will survive...(hopefully haha)
Best of luck to you!
I'm going to go study for finals now...
