We need finals week memes! Dead week and finals week is a time of unparalleled stress for even the most perfect and studious of us. What do we do when we’re stressed? Social media it up! This is especially the case with Facebook and Instagram – and why is that you may ask? Why it’s memes of course! The language of the new age which is often shared, spread and mutated for one singular purpose: to make us smile. One might say that memes are a new comedic art form, and as such, we cannot let the psychological boon of having a good chuckle at a meme go to waste, especially in times as ridden with anxiety as finals week. So don’t forget to stop every now and again to smell the memes! To get you started here are some finals week memes that you’ll find as relatable as they are funny, as well as some relatable/inspirational tidbits that I hope won’t taint these fine memes too much.
Without stress, finals week would be finals week. Everyone gets those finals stressies, from engineers to English majors to Art majors. Every professor assigns their tests and final papers and projects in clusters during the week, and if one professor decides to help you out and assign finals during dead week, every other professor seems to do it too. Every semester you just can’t seem to catch a break. But you know what makes the stressies go away? A big ol’ meme sandwich. Here you go kiddos!
Stressful! Really f**king stressful!!
This is how I feel all year round…
If only it were that simple… maybe one day they’ll make some of these that actually work.
P.S. that’s not something that gets better after college.
Seriously, don’t overwork yourself. It isn’t an overexaggeration to say that if you do, s**t can tend to get a little wierd…
Dead Week is over. The time of a thousand darknesses has come. Test after test after final paper after final project, it seems to never end, and if you procrastinated during dead week, it’s even worse. Your papers spiral out of control, your group isn’t putting in their share of the work, and you’re pretty sure you never went over any of this material in class, but for some god damn reason the professor put it in there anyways. You’re tired, you’re stressed, you’re running on 30 minutes of sleep and 3 pots of coffee, what can you do? Well, if you want you can stop and look at these finals week memes I brought for you.
Pretty sure none of this was in the study guide. Or the class. Or the textbook. Or the internet. Seriously where the hell is the teacher getting these questions??
If you didn’t know the first time, odds are pretty good you aren’t going to learn it while you’re taking the test…
Yea, definitely don’t remember that one…
They really need to sell hyperventilation bags at the student store… right next to the scantrons.
Either that wasn’t on the study guide or you just spent the last 12 straight hours studying for the wrong test…
An inevitability for many students, but sometimes you just have to lollygag so you don’t get burned out. Suddenly a few harmless breaks turn into whole lazy days because you’re too stressed to study and you’re stressed because you haven’t studied. Before you know it it’s test day or the due date for that project and you haven’t done s**t. Then you are screwed eight ways to Sunday and you’re stuck squeezing studying and writing into what miniscule time you have bwteen your jam-packed tests and due dates. So just be sure not to procrastinate too much or it’s going to bite you in the ass and your world will fall into chaos. That said, here are some more finals memes to help you procrastinate!
Yea. When I’m having anxiety about studying sometimes all I want to do is not study and make others that need to study not study with me. That way we can all go down together!
If it doesn’t come back it was never meant to be…
Yea! It’s the teacher’s fault! That bastard!
Or at the very least it sure as hell feels like you’re going to die.
Hehehe… I didn’t do nothin’
Pain is Temporary
Seriously going to be okay. It seems like the world is collapsing around you, I get it, I’ve been there. You just have to keep in mind that it’s all temporary. Finals week is just that: a week. It will be over soon enough and you can get back to all the things that make you happy again! All you have to do is give it your all and push through with all of your might and willpower. Take it one day at a time and avoid overwhelming yourself. When it’s all over, no matter what it’s over. You can worry about what comes after that.
