‘finals week’

A quick breather

The Five People You Meet During Finals

Dec. 18, 2015—And yes, those are my mechanism-covered whiteboards. I’m very proud of them.

Think Positive

Dec. 13, 2015—Finals week in college is an interesting time. For the first time since August, it feels like everything halts.
