Twas the night before finals

Twas the night before finals and all through Entrada,
Not a 1L was stirring, except for the bums in the plaza.

In the library students frantically studied away,
Half the people you’ve never seen before,
At least, not before today.
Students quietly sit minute after minute hour after hour,
And it’s very doubtful that any have showered.

Finals bring out the best,
Finals bring out the worst.
Students packed in the library,
Suddenly focused and submersed.

Some students are excited,
While others are stressed,
Crying and overwhelmed, wondering,
I’m in sunny San Diego, but why am I so depressed?!

Realizing it all comes down to these tests,
Maybe getting bottle service every weekend wasn’t the best?

On Redbull,
On Adderall,
On Coke Zero,
And No Doze.
On coffee,
On Tea,
And even 5 Hour Energy….

Pick your poison,
They all work, to keep us awake-
The 14th of December,
We can all hardly wait.

But above all, remember-
To whom much is given, much is expected.
For this is the message to not be neglected.
