If you or someone you know is a college student then chances are you know how stressful midterms can be. During the first part of a new semester, college is everything you want it to be. Happiness is in the air, and we’re all thinking, “How could life get any better?”. Then midterms sneak up to ruin all the fun and crush your hopes and aspirations at the same time.

Just when you start thinking about how good your grades are and how easy college is, you remember that you have five exams and a few projects due all within the span of two weeks. It’s so easy to put off all of those tests and assignments due in two months, but then you realize that you’ve somehow been in class for almost two months now.

You’re extremely stressed out by this point, and you can only imagine how your grades are going to look by midterms. Eventually, you decide that there’s another half to the semester and all these problems can go away until you’ve had your well-deserved spring break. Except, they don’t go away, not yet anyways.

I don’t know about you, but I love several sleepless nights in a row. What is sleep even? I apparently don’t need it anymore because my professors don’t expect me to have any time for it anyways. This is the point when you realize that you probably shouldn’t have waited until the last minute to get yourself
together. Oh well, at least we have the second half of the semester to make amends for our terrible decisions and mistakes.

In the end, everything is going to be alright and you still have plenty of time to bring your grades. You just need to make it through the next few weeks for that amazing spring break that you’ve earned with all of that hard work.
