A Little Comic Relief to Brighten Your Day

If you’re like me, you’re definitely starting to feel the stress, pressure and anxiety of the last few weeks of classes. Mine stems from all of the exams, presentations and papers, as well as lab reports that are due when there is only a small window of time to finish them. You’d think that assignments would be slowing down since you’re finishing up learning all of the material you need to learn for the final, but NOPE! Everything simply gets more hectic.

Time management gets more difficult and it’s hard to prioritize everything since most academic things are of great importance at this point. There’s no more time to procrastinate, so spending endless hours in the library attending help sessions most nights of the week and simply saying “no” to plans you are invited to are a definite must. However, there are times where you just need to have a moment of fun and step back from everything. That’s the point of this week’s blog. Over this past week I stumbled across some pretty great videos on YouTube that certainly lifted my spirits a bit and allowed me to get a hardy laugh in before continuing on my homework grind. For instance, my brother sent me this awesome Conan O’Brien video about the Santa Anita races:

Here’s another featuring Chris Hemsworth that was just really clever:

And then there’s this classic one from Rover that makes you smile if you were ever a fan of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air:

So, if you need a little break from your studying, I hope these videos helped and will make you slightly less stressed during these final weeks before the semester ends. I hope everybody has a great weekend and enjoys their Thanksgiving!
