No, Not Finals!

Please, no, not finals. Yes, finals. It is that lovely time of year where everything that you have learned (or tried to learn) for the past few months comes at you like a train. Headlights shining and full steam ahead, and all you can do is stare. Yes, finals, where sweats are seen everywhere, sleep is obsolete, caffeine is a staple, and brains fry. Awesome right? Finals are never fun or looked forward to; however, it does mean an end. Just get past those exams and it will be Christmas!! While you are studying though, here are some helpful tips and funny quotes to help you along. Good luck!!
