2. Slowly all the schoolwork begins to creep up on you like a giant monster breathing down your neck.

3. You check your exam schedule one last time only to be reminded of how much it sucks.

4. You calculate the minimum exam grade you can escape with, but realize you're totally cooked in one class, no matter what.

It's all over.

It's all over.

5. So you begin to lock yourself away in the library to cram. People start to question whether or not you've gone missing and died.

6. While you're studying, someone begins to have a complete meltdown.

7. ... And it scares the shit out of you, and you begin to wonder why you aren't freaking out more.
