  • It's all a balancing act.

    Picture this, all of last week having no class due to snow and ice conditions. You have your last week of school this week and finals next week. You have two tests and a paper due this week and two papers and a test next week. Now smile. Because this is my life, not yours! Haha, oh just jokes blog followers, it is not that bad, just your typical pre-finals week. Here are some tips on how to avoid a major freak out: #1 Have lots of coffee and Diet Coke on hand.

Seriously, stop procrastinating, it is the worst thing you can do and is guaranteed to stress you out hardcore parcore. #3 Rewards. It's all about the treats. After every 10 pages of reading or after every 1 page of paper writing, treat yourself with some red and green colored M&M's or a dance party break.

We will get enough sleep (5-8 hours depending on the intensity of work), we will eat enough, and we will have a blast the whole way through. So change your Pandora radio from Ke$ha to Christmas, order yourself a Peppermint Mocha, and turn that stressed out frown upside down! 'Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la...
