Mini Stop: A Fun Way to Deal with Finals Stress

The second week of December. Finals week. The week I always wonder how I persevere through, even when I have eaten three packages of ramen, cannot remember the last time I slept more than four hours at a time, and am anxiously waiting to see if my grades are as good as they can be.

My best friend, Carlie, and I needed a moment to destress, so what do we do? Watch Netflix? Eat junk food? Use a facial mask? No. We have an impromptu photo shoot.

Carlie photographed all of these lovely shots. This was a way for both of us to go have fun for thirty minutes, and let go of the constant stress both of us have been dealing with due to work, internships, school, finals, volunteering, the holiday season, and much more.

So, this week, if you and your friend are feeling stressed, grab your phone, camera, or polaroid and go take photos. It does not matter if they look great, bad, or somewhere in between, the purpose is to spend quality time with a friend, have some laughs, and to get your mind off of your stress. Also, you might get some pretty cool photos out of it too!

Here are how some of Carlie’s (Instagram: @carliepageo) photos turned out:

Happy studying!

Lots of Love,

Nina
