Taking Finals As Told By The Grinch

By Jessi Stickel on December 11, 2015

The good news is that the Fall 2015 semester is coming to an end, but the bad news is that final exams are “practically here!”

Fall semester finals are probably the worst because they are right before the holidays and it’s just hard to get in the studying mood when all you want to do is go home and be curled up on the couch with hot chocolate watching Christmas movies.

It is fun to lighten the serious exam mood with a little humor, and since Christmas is almost here, here is what your brain goes through when taking finals, as told by the hilarious Grinch.

When the rest of the world is getting ready for Christmas and you still have to endure finals week.


Walking into the classroom to take the final with your friend.


When you first get the test in front of you and start to review the questions.


Seeing questions and you have no clue what the answer is … and it’s essay questions.


Realizing you should have studied 12,784 more hours than you actually did for the exam.


Planning the rest of your day because you’re just drawing a blank on everything.


When you finally see that first question you know the answer to.


When you start to remember everything you studied and realize you may actually pull this off.


When you finish the last question of the exam and you don’t even know if your brain can handle walking out of the room.


You give your professor the exam and they say “Now that wasn’t so hard, was it?” knowing they made it as difficult as possible.


When finals are over and you don’t know what to do with yourself after studying for a week straight.


Knowing that the semester is over and you get to go home and celebrate Christmas!
