Finals Week: Must Haves

So I don't know about you but my next two weeks are going to be INSANE! I have a long list of things to do for finals week [plus I'll be working] so I've scheduled some posts that have to deal with finals week and getting through them (whether you're in high school, undergrad, or grad school or maybe you have a deadline for your job soon). 

First things first, you're going to need comfy clothes (but this should really need a no brainer). If you're anything like me, you'll be up until all hours of the night writing and revising or studying so you have to stay comfortable. 

Next, you need snacks and not junk food snacks, but snacks that are actually good for you and will help your brain stay awake. Plus, you don't want to get food out of the vending machine, not only is it bad for you but they'll also clean out your wallet faster than you know! Things like bananas, apples, almonds, straberries, granola bars, avocados, broccoli, carrots, pineapple slices and peppermints can help keep you awake, and they're good for you.

Get a water bottle, not a disposable one, but a nice one you can refill (you could even use the same one you bring to the gym if you have one). I know I love drinking coffee and tea every now and then (but really, tea a lot more so), but I know that water is the best thing for my body. 

 Keep all your notes in one place & be organized. Once you get your schedule for the week (we usually get ours the first week of classes), you can write it all down in your planner (or an online calendar) so you can then go ahead and make a study plan. Don't wait until the last minute. I take a lot of notes on my computer so I use Evernote, it's really simple and easy (plus it's free) to keep track of all my notes; plus they have an app for my iPhone. 

Lastly but certainly not least, please remember to back up your files! You should be doing this all throughout the semester, just incase, but certainly do it when finals comes around. 

Don't freak out! You'll do great. Take a few breaks and remember to breathe and you'll be just fine!
