  1. Great tongue-in-cheek post. I actually expected something more serious. Funny was a pleasant surprise. I still remember writing finals when I was a teen 40 years ago, so I sympathize. Hang in there!

    1. Thank you! Whenever I think of finals I just want to read something that is fun and kind of takes the stress away for a minute. I hope this post can do the same to the rest of the stressed out there.
