I Survived


Posted by Nicole

Monday and Tuesday were two rough days. It feels like I just woke up from a really stressful, bad dream haha. Finals will do that to you. On Monday, I sure “got around”….. that is…. with various study locations:






I don’t think I would ever willingly take three finals on the same day ever again. It was brutal, but I sure felt accomplished and relieved afterwards. Last night, I packed up the rest of my stuff and spent the last few hours in my apartment watching trash TV with my roomies. E! has some ridiculous shows nowadays…. like “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” We sure had a laugh at his idiotic comments about his “Lochtourage.”

Despite the mental workouts, physical workouts have definitely been slacking. I haven’t gone to the gym in 4 days and I’m feeling a little terrible. It’s been hard to fall asleep at night because of extra energy. It will be nice to get in a few good workouts before the wedding… including the Capitola Half Marathon on Sunday morning!

This morning, I packed my bedding and bid adieu to junior year at USC.



In a few short hours, I’ll be landed in SJ, and this time I can actually feel relaxed because it’s officially summer. Woo! It will be a fun few days of baking cupcakes (~400 for the wedding), celebrating with family, seeing friends, and watching my mom change her last name!!! I can’t wait. And then work starts on Tuesday and it’s back to the grind. It’s going to be a great summer.

    Three finals in one day sounds absolutely bananas, but you are such a champ for getting through that! Like you, I switch up my study spot to try to keep my productivity levels up, but my current favorite spots are the 8th floor of the library (hello ocean view) and outside on the grass!

    My FAVORITE study spot = the STAT LAB!!!! (Duh)

    How much studying actually happened in there is questionable. ;)


    p.s. so proud of you for tackling that many finals!

    VT has a policy where you can request to switch finals if you have more than two within 24 hours – I can’t imagine having three in one day! Congrats on making it through, now it’s time to celebrate :)

    Oi vay. In undergrad, I did most of my studying on my bed with 1,429 papers splayed out around me. Now that I’m in College 2.0, I’ve moved on to the library or a Barnes and Noble. Something about the din of other people chatting while I’m in isolation is oddly calming.
