However, since I have lots of friends still in college who are studying for finals (or, you know, they should be, anyway), I present to you...
Seven Pixar Clips That Will Help You Ace Your ExamsSeriously. Animated movies hold a lot of wisdom. Also, I like these clips and wanted to give you an excuse to procrastinate for ten minutes. Enjoy.
|I didn't actually use clips from Monster's University, because that would be too obvious.|
One: Toy Story
Two: Monsters Inc.
Finals Week Takeaway: Discipline pays off. And montages make everything better. You probably should create one of your studying routine. (Vocab flashcard drills and coffee runs would make a super interesting training montage. Quality stuff.)
Finals Week Takeaway: Constantly complaining about how much you hate a class, or a professor, or that slacker who is doing nothing to contribute to the group project doesn't really help anything. It's easier to be a critic than to create something amazing. Also, don't be afraid to change your mind about something. (This especially applies to final research papers, projects, and debates.)
Finals Week Takeaway: Sometimes you need physical activity to release stress and tension of exams.
Five: A Bug's Life
Finals Week Takeaway: Don't feel like you have to do things the exact same way everyone has always done it. Be creative! And, whatever you do, don't panic!
Six: The Incredibles
Finals Week Takeaway: The system doesn’t want you to succeed…but taking good notes pays off. Also sometimes faking tears and being pathetic can be useful too.
Seven: Finding Nemo
Finals Week Takeaway: When all else fails, just keep swimming.
Best of luck, everyone. And remember, if a delusional space ranger, a rusty old robot, and an overweight ex-super hero can succeed, so can you.
While we're at it, how about a vote? What is the best Pixar movie of all time, and why?
