Happy Holidays...Kinda


It's the last week before Christmas Vacation...also known as FINALS WEEK.

This is a time of



and where the ability to torture innocent students is given to professors everywhere.

For those of you in college ( High School counts to some degree, but you really have no idea until you come here)...there are some things you should know about having a sane Finals Week experience.

  • First of All, do not pull all nighters. This is something I tried, regretted, and am now passing the knowledge on to you.

-It is a proven fact that even just 3 hours of sleep will take what you learned that night, and put it into your "deep memory" while you sleep-

If you stay up all night, then your mind never gets that chance.

Plus, slaving over a calculus book at 4 in the morning while throwing back Red Bulls can't be good for you in the end

  • Also, make sure to study hard BEFORE the Finals. More and more do I see kids trying to Sparknote "Othello" by Shakespeare, 2 hours before the final! Valiant as this is, you probably aren't going to pass the test with flying colors. Instead, try taking a stab at looking at the play a week before the final

This way if you fail it's because you aren't very smart, and not because you didn't try :)

Now I know for a fact that there are...



And you adults read this blog. And you're probably saying to yourself, "Well thank God I'm not in college anymore."


These rules apply to you too!!!

If you are guzzling down Monsters while pulling an all nighter on a report due to your boss in 4 hours....Then you're no better than an 18 year old.

IN OTHER NEWS...(Notice how I sounded like a reporter there..though I may be the craziest reporter you've ever seen)

Christmastime is only a matter of days away..and there are some of you who have yet to buy your Christmas presents.

The only excuse for this is if you're Jewish!!

There are insane mothers out at 3 a.m. on Black Friday buying out do you expect to beat these people if you're still parked on your couch watching The Year Without a Santa Clause, and drinking Egg Nog like it's your job??

Get off your couch

.... and go get something for people you love, even if it's gum from the conveniant store down the street. Because we all know you'll feel like crap if they get you some great christmas present, and your only excuse is:

" uhhh...there were some great Christmas specials this year."

So I'll be heading home soon, and I'll probably do a couple blogs from there, because I'm not coming back until the middle of January...and I KNOW how you can't live without me.

Until then..

Talk to ya later!

HI Honey,

Well it's nice to see that some of my advice has made it to your blog.

Staying up all night always made me feel sick - although sad to say I did do it too often!

See you in a few days! Love ya!

Thank God you’re going home; hopefully you will have spell check there. One question and then a comment: You advise to make sure to study hard BEFORE the finals, so does that mean I can not study DURING or AFTER the finals? Great advice to the adults, however the adults that act that way are the same type of people that acted that way as teens and young adults. We call them losers. Great blog, keep it up and soon you will be able to spell, use proper grammar and put together coherent thoughts in a logical manner.
Cheers! Merry Christmas
