A Note Before Finals

It is that time of year again.

Finals season….

Here come long nights spent in the library trying to review a semesters worth of material in a couple of days.

Yearning for that winter break that seems so tauntingly close.

Flipping through countless notes reconsidering the reason you are here.

Recalculating the score you need on the final to achieve that A.

Downing coffee and energy drinks to pull those all nighters.

It may seem that all is lost.

But we will make it!

We have been working for this all semester. Just one last push to the end!

Sure along the way motivation will tremble.

Tears may surely began to fall.


But remember the bigger picture.

You made it into the University for a reason. You are a smart person. Put in the effort to study and you will do great!

We got this.

Now go ace those finals!

P.S. I wrote this article to motivate myself for the upcoming finals season that is looking to be a challenging one. I hope it could help any other college students out there going through finals too! :)

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed!
