It’s that time of year – our days are filled with assignments, final classes, studying and dreaming of the day that it’s finally all complete. I think it’s fair to say that it always seems like the semester flies by, yet this time of year somehow seems to last a lifetime. So rather than working on assignments like I should be, I decided to relate a student’s feelings at this point in the semester to one of my favourite TV shows.

1.Sitting in your last class and thinking about all of the assignments you have to dogiphy-21

2. Getting a paper back only to find out you didn’t do as well as you thought you wouldgiphy-22

3. Finishing a paper on the day it’s due and submitting it at 11:58pm       giphy-23

4. Knowing that the break is so close, then remembering everything you need to get done before thengiphy-24

5. When someone makes the mistake of asking you how you’re doing       giphy-27

6. Going into class after looking at the assignment rubric and your prof asks if you need any clarification                                         giphy-28

7. Finishing an assignment then realizing that you’re not even close to being done them allgiphy-29

8. No explanation needed                                                                                     giphy-30

9. If you’re lucky enough to have a free moment amidst all of this chaos   giphy-31

10. Knowing that after all of this is done you have a break waiting for yougiphy-26

Well Badgers, on that note I think it’s time for you to stop reading my post and get back to work. You and I both know you have a lot more to be doing right now than scrolling through this post.

In all seriousness, keep in mind that there are a lot of mental health resources if you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed and would like or need help. One resource that has just been introduced is the I.M. Well App, which we talked about here.

You’ve got this! 🙂
