15 things on my mind: Finals Week

May 10, 2016 in College

Hi guys and happy Tuesday!

Finals week is in full swing, and honestly am just craving summer so so much. I have a social psychology and english exam Wednesday, a Philosophy paper and abnormal psychology exam Thursday, and a Spanish exam Friday- then home for the summer. Going to be doing  lots of prayers, deep breathing, and texting my mama to get me through this stressful time: but I can do it, and to all my friends out there taking exams- so can you!!

Going to be doing lots of rambling today: so let’s get started!

  1. Finals week has got me drinkin all the coffee…. Starbucks, Marylous, Dunkin Donuts- basically anything. search.jpg (Image credit)
  2. My roomie moved out yesterday, and now it’s just me… here side of the room is completely empty. It feels so weird! Just me, myself, and I.
  3. This morning I brought a whole jar of Justin’s honey peanut butter into Starbucks. Yeah, I got some looks; no, I did  not regret it when I had rice cakes+pb+banana and a Siggi’s yogurt for bfast. c38c0862d1dcf5560e4679dd8d4ed65e.jpg (Image Credit)
  4. I got to see my bff yesterday for breakfast before heading back to school and get an acai bowl… so it was a win win situation if ya ask me. Can’t wait to be home for the summer and spending time with all my frands!
  5. Confession: I should probably be reading and being productive but I am writing this blog post and watching the cute little kiddos in front of me. imgres.jpg (Image Credit)
  6. It’s 10:00 A.M. and I already want more coffee. Woops.8c3144988252c6d47af352b654c4647a103525bc497c819d9b6789d5131489ee.jpg (Image Credit)
  7. I am thankful my dad got me gum for this week: anyone else like chewing gum while studying? I feel like it helps me focus a bit more! And get rid of my bad breath hehe.
  8. I find coffee shops to be SO peaceful. I love love love the environment in them and find myself very relaxed while doing work here.
  9. I am the kind of person that cannot do work in their room: I need the lib or a coffee shop/cafe- anyone else agree?
  10. Even though I had home-cooked food all weekend… I already miss it and can’t wait to be back in my kitchen for the summer. So many new recipes I want to try!
  11. I have lotsa meetings with professors today and some review sessions. Thank god for office hours!
  12. It will prob me a late night… but that’s okay- I’ll get through it!
  13. I am super duper excited to get lunch with my BFF Jillian- she always brings a huge smile to my face.
  14. I am thankful for music to get me through schoolwork- anyone else love listenin’ to music while doing work?
  15. There is no way I am throwin on a pair of jeans this week… already decided- comfy clothes all the way! url.jpg (Image Credit)

    You’re almost done with finals! You can do it!

      Thank you for the support Julia!!

    Coffee is magic. It’s the caffeine that gets people through finals haha
    When I study I need to change environments every 1 or 2 hours. I either hit all the coffee shops or all the libraries. A new room sometimes helps the words flow for essays or I will understand a concept more fully in a new place.
    You’re almost through! You got this!

    Haha! Your Justins jar in Starbucks reminds me of the time I wanted a Starbucks bistro box but couldn’t have the roll because gluten grr.. So I literally went across the street to the market, bought a whole package of gluten free rolls, strolled back into Starbucks, and ate my dang bistro box WITH roll. *sings* Give it to me I’m worthhhhh it ;D

    I am sure you’re going to SMASH your finals out of the park 😉 I’ll be praying for you though as I know how stressful it can be!

    Comfy clothes are a MUST. Especially when stressed… it’s like a comfort blanket that you can wear ;P

    • Reply Alyssa May 13, 2016 at 6:30 pm

      Thank you so much Kristy! They went well!! 🙂 xoxo <3

    How would we get through finals week without coffee?! 😉 and omg I love that you brought a jar of Justin’s into Starbucks… totally something I would do!

    • Reply Alyssa May 13, 2016 at 6:30 pm

      Right?? Coffee really does save lives haha. And hey, Justins is just so good you gotta bring it everywhere 😉

  • Reply Cora May 13, 2016 at 9:57 pm

    We would study very well together. I absolutely cannot work at home and can’t work in silence! I need the background hum of a coffee shop – it’s where I am most productive. I think I’m in a cafe more than I am at home. And yes – most definitely bring in my own peanut butter and lunch and snacks haha. Almost there girl!!!!
