MONDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2013THE UNIVERSITY DAILY KANSANPAGE 2
our months ago, I sat in a classroom--my ﬁrst class of the year—and fast-forwarded to the last day I would spend in that class. It was uncomfortably hot that day, and I wore shorts and a T-shirt. On the last day, I walked up the stairs behind Fraser as the wind numbed my face.We made it. Four months, 15 weeks and 73 days of class leading up to this ﬁnal week of exams, essays and projects. Coﬀee is your fuel, so we found a few of the best deals around Lawrence to help you get the most caﬀeine for your buck (and when the coﬀee gets old, try one of our ﬁnals week drink recipes.) For the long hours at the library, turn on our Finals Guide Spotify playlist to power you through the last 5 pages of that psych essay. If the library is packed, read up on a few alternative study space ideas to maximize comfort and eﬀectiveness. If you need to take a much-needed study break, we’ve given you a few suggestions of Netﬂix documentaries that oﬀer a change of perspective. Feel free to use the puzzles as a tool to keep your mind sharp. Whip up a healthy new recipe before an early ﬁnal to get your brain juices ﬂowing.With a little strategic planning and helpful tools, ﬁnals week doesn’t have to be dreaded. When you’re back home, sitting on the couch with hot chocolate and a holiday cookie, you’ll breathe a sigh of relief that you don’t have to go through ﬁnals week again.Until next semester, of course.
