Dead Week Begins

Our school likes to call the week before finals, “dead week,” meaning minimal midterms or projects or information.  I’m not sure why this is because my roommate seems to be running around like the end of the world is coming near.  Well, it is, but in her case, all of her projects are due this week and so it pretty much could be the end of the world if she doesn’t finish 🙂 I have faith. My week isn’t as bad as it could be, but it’s only Monday morning…

So yesterday, after an 8 hour drive back to school (no, it was not supposed to be 8…it was supposed to be 5, but that’s besides the point) and some unpacking, I’ve decided I’m ready to take on anything that comes at me this week.  Fitness and little Christmas cheer will be partners in crime.

I couldn’t really get myself to listen to Christmas music the entire 8 hours, but am ready to wear some holiday gear.  Including my new-spiffy riding boots.  I am extremely picky, so this is two years in the making.

Soooo many fun decoration/gift/baking ideas…alright, let’s survive these next two weeks and get into the spirit of the holidays!

  1. Oh wow we don’t have that at my school at all. We call the week before finals “hell week”. I have 3 10 page papers due, 2 presentations, and an exam. Definitely not dead week. So enjoy it 🙂

    • Oh my GOODNESS! Girl you have a ton to do 🙂 My load isn’t that bad, but I’m already preparing to create a final presentation, create graphs and charts for a written final report and another ethics final report and paper.

  2. Dead week for me was usually worse than finals week since a lot of my classes had papers or take home finals instead of tests. So dead week I would have like 3 papers and then one test during finals. Good luck!!!! You’re in the home stretch!

  3. I’ve never had any papers due during dead week (thank you science classes) but my roommate sounds exactly like yours! Dead doesn’t even start until next week, but she is already staying up late to work on her papers! Anyways good luck to you on your finals/final papers/presentations/sanity 🙂
