Coping With the Final Two Weeks

Another semester has come and is nearly over, but before we rush off into the excitement of summer, there is more work still to be accomplished.

Final exams,

Research papers,

Last minute assignments,

…you get the idea.

Every semester I adopt a tactic to help me survive the final few weeks.  One semester it was exercise, another time it was a special iTunes playlist, and once it was off-campus activities.

This semester?  Food.  (I was going to choose exercise again, but I didn’t want to be repetitive.)  There’s just something about a good study snack that does wonders for productivity.  Some of my personal favorites are, in no particular order, Pretzel M&M’s, Sundried Tomato & Basil Wheat Thins, guacamole and/or queso (let’s go with and instead of or), and Lay’s Kettle Cooked Sea Salt & Vinegar chips.

Remember, this is meant to be a boost for the last couple weeks of the semester and in no way reflects my eating habits or lifestyle.

What about you?  Any tips on coping?  Favorite late-night snacks?
