Why finals shouldn’t be scheduled so close to the holidays:

• All this studying makes you more depressed then when you learned the truth about Santa in eighth grade.

• Instead of getting lost in the wonder and magic of the holiday season, you get lost trying to properly set up a stoichiometry equation.

• Your studies begin to influence your holiday thoughts, and you begin asking questions such as “Could Santa’s elves perhaps be the presumed-extinct Homo florensiensis we learned about in Human Origins?”

• Your diversions become holiday-tinged, like attempting to disprove Santa’s existence by using rate and distance formulae from your Calculus for Business notes.

• Instead of wearing festive red and green and listening to Christmas ditties, you feel like dressing in all black, putting on mascara, and pumping up the screamo.

• You end up thinking about the rhetoric behind and their ulterior motives Christmas commercials, instead of just enjoying how truly cheesy they are.

• How is a person supposed to focus when eggnog is so cheap and plentiful?

• Instead of drinking with friends in celebration and memories of good times past, you are drinking by alone in your room, trying to forget as much of the last few months as possible.

• Whenever someone asks what you want for Christmas, without thinking you reply “all As.”
