Midterms are alive and well. As students, we’ve all realized that the hard way, unfortunately. In an act of solidarity, I’m gonna share some wisdom from Jean Hanson and Jo Supernaw at the Wellness center. With these myths busted you’ll, in my opinion, be able to kick midterm’s a** better. (Hint: It involves more sleep.)
Myth #1: The effects of my all-nighter only impacts me.
You may be the only one who gets to sport the Dukie-meets-phantom-menace look, but your worsened mood? Lack of focus? Degree of inefficiency? You can’t be as productive a teammate, as present a friend, nor as pleasant an acquaintance.
All-nighters don’t make you cool or more impressive. They make you tired.
Myth #2: Staying up those extra few hours to cram will help my GPA.
