With Hell Week currently taking its toll, we’re going to need a few tips to survive. Let’s start with: Don’t be an idiot.  Just kidding. Well, actually Michael gave Dwight pretty good advice.

Speaking more practically, here are my tips for surviving Hell Week:

  1. Go to the Academic Support Center religiously. They exist to help students survive.
  1. Delete your Social Media apps. It’s very simple, just long-press and touch the little “x.” With the Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter apps deleted, you just magically took back time that you should use for the paper you procrastinated on. Then after finals you can redownload.
  1. Use earphones in social areas. People are great, but distracting.
  1. Drink lots of water. While sweet tea and coffee have powers, water may have a few more. Generally speaking, men should drink at least 13 cups and women 9 cups.

Read the Bible and pray to God. No, not to win brownie-points with God so he’ll help you with the exam you haven’t studied for, but to help you focus on the things above, as we’re supposed to (Col. 3:2). May God be your vision.
