As the semester draws to an end and finals start to rear their ugly head, don’t let yourself get distracted by everything else going on in the world. Everyone hits a point where they feel that they just can’t do it anymore. That they can’t even get through one more page. When this happens to you, just remember that the best thing you can do is push through it. You have come way too far to let yourself get distracted. It will come to the point that absolutely everything is going to look more attractive than studying for finals. You will be in your bathroom and all of a sudden feel an uncontrollable urge to clean your toilet. Laugh now, but it is going to happen.
Don’t get me wrong, taking a short break to clear your head and get something to eat is necessary, but a thirty minute study break to eat dinner and watch last week’s episode of ‘How I Met Your Mother’ easily turns into three and a half hours of Facebook stalking people from your high school you’ve spoken with once since graduating and watching all last season’s episodes of ‘The Office.’ Next thing you know, it’s 1 am and you still haven’t even skimmed through your readings for classes tomorrow. Do NOT let this happen to you.
The best thing you can do is make sure you have a set schedule to get you through the next few weeks until you’re done. If you haven’t taken the time to put one together yet do it now. Just remember that everything else can wait until you finish that last final, and when all else fails, Keep On Keepin’ On.
