This might be an unpopular opinion, but I really love the final exam period. Everyone’s got their noses in books, teaching themselves all the material that they missed all semester and supporting each other in a common struggle (the realistic purpose of which is to beat the curve, but which I like to believe is to arrive at a larger truth). They cherish the time that they spend goofing off and distract each other with videos of puppies and happy babies.
Also, there’s free coffee, and the library is open 24/7.
Every week should be finals week.
