Chistmas is right around the corner and the exam stress is boiling up. Our average coffee consumption has doubled as well as our procrastination skills. The usually empty study halls are now full of frustrated students, burned out computers and an overflow of unnecessary printet sheets (both professor’s notes and old exam papers).
Dark rings around eyes have become a normal sight. Conversations can be heard accross campus of people reconsidering their choice of study. Really? Is this how bad we handle stress?
The woman behind the cashier gives me a sympathetic smile before handing me the croissant I just bought.
“Been up studying all night?”, she asks. I wish I could say yes but I was busy avoiding my books and watching a Keeping up with the Kardashians marathon. I guess that’snot a better way of handling the exam stress either. But, hey, – I’m probably not the only one. And knowimg that makes it all a little easier.
So to all students out there thinking they’re alone about feeling restless or only knowing half their syllabus; you’re not the only one. So keep up with that caffeine intake and late night studying while knowing we’re millions in this with you.
