Depending on whether or not you’re lucky, finals may be just about over or just beginning. Either way, here’s how to celebrate when they’re FINALLY (ha) over and done with.
Light a grill and cook a steak with the notes from that gen-ed class you hate.
Ask out the cutie in that one class.
Return all of the books you checked out for your papers and revel in the literal weight off your back.
Have a party.
Have a NAP party.
Visit all the places you like in the city that you haven’t seen in months because of school. Throw away a couple flashcards at each location.
Take a 20-minute-long hot shower.
Make your roommate take a shower.
Fill out class evals with COMPLETE honesty.
Take a couple long, deep breaths, then scream. Then continue with the deep breaths.
Visit an animal shelter and play with the cuties.
Buy an extra-large variation on your favorite treat.
Take a long walk. No, longer than that. Keep walking. Walk until you’re somewhere where finals never were. Settle down there and start a new life.
Go home and cocoon yourself in blankets for two days, or until you feel better.
Go make snow angels, if possible.
If snow angels aren’t possible, just lying on the ground and waving your arms about is fine.
Call a good friend and talk/arrange to hang out.
Start a snowball fight.
Buy holiday presents (you have three more days of Hanukkah left!)
Start your biannual caffeine detox.
Write a thank you note to the professor(s) that helped you the most this semester.
Find a vegetable and eat it.
It’s (almost) over. You got this!
