So it’s the end of the year. You’ve had to study every intricate part of the nervous system. You’ve had to learn how to optimize the schedule of minor league baseball teams. You’ve had to create an entire stage and set for a play out of cardboard. Finals just took over your life, so you’ve been sitting on A-level looking like this:
You’ve been stressed, you’ve been pushed to your limit. While all your hard work is worth it, sometimes it is hard to remember it. Emotions are running high, and eventually you just look like this:
Sometimes it just feels like you are getting pied in the face.
But somehow, as always, you make it through. Hopkins is such a close-knit, supportive community. There is always a group of kids who understand what you’re going through and offer you support along the way.
But even during finals, there is time to have fun. And you can always count on one of your best friends to go see some of the most innovative biomedical designs in the country in the middle of finals. We have our priorities straight. (Trust me, we actually do. And we didn’t have finals til the second week).
And maybe sometimes you’ll even find someone who was a big fan of your blog during her admissions process and it makes you feel really, REALLY cool.
And if none of this works (but trust me, it does), your really cool big brother will send you this to your phone:
And at the end of the day, it’ll all be OK, because a wise philosopher named Katy Perry once said, “Baby, you’re a firework.”
It’s officially summer. :)
