What went through your head during finals week at college? Caitlyn Leary shares her thoughts.

Finals week happens two times per school year, and let's face it, they are the two most stressful weeks of your life. Finals are a time for self-reflection, and you realize how much you slacked or did the right things for the past 15 weeks. So while you are all stressed out over your future, take a study break and have a laugh at some of the thoughts that always pop into your head during this awful time in your life.

6. Maybe I should start studying...nah I'll just cram.

7. Maybe cramming isn't a good idea.

22. Maybe I'll just become a stripper.

23. Scrolls through all social media for an hour and a half while "studying."
