As the last two weeks of the class have begun their count down, many of us have started prepping for the battle of finals, paper, group projects, evaluations, and presentations that lay ahead of us. This might include buying as much K-cup coffees and monsters that your budget can allow, completely annihilating your sleep cycle, officially moving into the library, or dawning the same sweatpants and T-shirt that you have been living in for the next week and a half. However you plan to tackle your finals week, besides worrying about how sound your grades for your classes will be, remember to make sure your mind is sound too.
Mental Awareness is one of our two impact areas this semester and it is bringing attention to the fact that we have to bring to light mental health problems and do our best to keep safe sound minds within our community. This, ladies, includes finals week. Stressing yourself to tears is not a good sign. Pulling all nighters in expectations that your grade is directly correlated with how much time you put in studying, is unfortunately a sad myth. You need to make some time in your day to allow your brain to rest and retain what is being thrown at it.
For all of you lovely sisters that are still in Resident Halls, RSA (Resident Student Association) is hosting three events this week. There will be puppies on Monday, a pancake social on Tuesday and massages on Wednesday! 🙂
Enjoy and good luck on finals ladies!
