6. Or load up on Frappuccinos

7. If nothing is working, try freezing your ass off


A quick plunge in a cold river or lake will reboot your system and prepare you for a week's worth of studying.

8. Watch a movie that doesn't require much thought

9. Or eat a super hot chili pepper


If you can make it past a minute or so of extreme discomfort you'll, get an endorphin rush similar to a long workout.

10. You could push the cafeteria trays to their limit

11. Have someone yell at you

12. Or play mind games with the library staff


Lay face down on a table and see how long it takes the staff to ask you to stop.

13. If you're still stressing, you might need to get naked

14. Or go nuts on a rival sorority or fraternity house


I mean, if not now, when?

15. Before abandoning all hope, scream violently into a pillow

Don't give up. You can do this!
