As classes end and the year comes to a close, the last thing we all want to be doing is studying for exams. But the presence of finals lingers in the background like a shadow, and we dive into our studies in hopes that we can catch up on all the lectures we skipped for the entire semester, losing ourselves in the inevitable sleep-deprived stress that accompanies this week leading up to finals.
You should be studying right now, but let’s be real –– dead week is for so much more than studying. No classes means there’s time to explore, watch Netflix and hang out with friends –– all the things you’ve put off for the whole semester. So before getting back to your study grind, take a study break with this dead week issue and momentarily “piece out” with puzzles.
