Oh finals week, the time of year when students turn into zombies and energy drink companies make a killing. Some students aspire to do the bare minimum to squeeze out a C, some are going frantic trying to maintain their A. However, this is the week where all students kick themselves, asking themselves if they could've done more so they wouldn't be going paranoid about their final grade.

6. Spending too much time on Facebook and Twitter
It's funny how social media has consumed the lives of students. What's more important, paying attention in class or making sure your homegirl knows that the cookies she baked look soooooooo good? At the beginning of the year, it's the latter. Right now? Probably the former.
It's gotten to the point that Facebook and Twitter have become a necessary crutch to briefly escape from studying or paying attention in class. It becomes a brief break, turned into four hours of lollygagging.
