Final Exams Coming Up? Hang in There!


Preparing for finals right before Christmas can be an insane time.

Preparing for finals right before Christmas can be an insane time. I know because I'm pretty much a professional student (I’ve taken countless exams through my years of medical training). Each year at this time, I get flashbacks and this recurring nightmare…weirdly, my nightmares are really nerdy. In them I oversleep and rush to my final exam, showing up late. Just as time runs out, before I can finish the test, I wake up in a cold sweat!


If you’re going through Finals right now, I see you.  Hang in there!

Final exams in December, as opposed to the spring, can be especially hard. There’s the distraction of buying gifts and thinking about the upcoming break. For me as a student in Boston, it was always wicked cold which made coming home late at night from the library particularly painful.


So if you’re going through this right now, I see you. All-nighters are sometimes necessary, but focus on hydration and nutrition. It will soon be all over. Hang in there! You got this!
