Finals Week As Told By Parks & Rec

We have made it.

Well, almost. We have almost made it across that finish line, signaling that after 4 months of exams, essays, awkward social interactions, amazing social interactions, fest weekends, adventures, etc, we, students of OU, have almost finished our spring semester of 2016, signaling the completion of an entire year of our time at OU.


That in itself is insane, but there is one more challenge that we need to overcome in order to let out a sigh of relief: finals.

In order to get you all prepared for the mental and physical exhaustions of finals week, I have prepared for you a bit of humor that will hopefully allow you to let out a laugh before the hell fires consume you.

I don’t know about you, but nothing else gets me laughing until my stomach hurts, or the tears flowing, more than Parks and Recreation. While Leslie Knope is my spirit animal, Chris Pratt is still my number one celebrity crush, and Donna reminds me that it’s okay to treat myself (this week it will be in the form of a large white chocolate iced mocha).

So, for your viewing pleasure, finals week as told by Parks and Recreation…

When you come across your first friend having a mental breakdown:



And then when you have your first mental breakdown of the week:



YOU’VE FINISHED, so you walk out of your final exam like:



A S/O to all the people who got you through the past few weeks (& basically the entire semester):



And finally, it’s time to celebrate:


So good luck, fellow Bobcats, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
