However, for the college students who actually use their time in school to broaden their horizons, become citizens of the world and -- most importantly -- get good grades so they can get good jobs, exams can apparently be fairly stressful.
I did spend countless hours in my dorm pecking away at take-home exams while people in the library stabbed each other with pens to assert their dominance (I assume that's how things work), and the majority of those hours were devoted to wasting time online to avoid doing any actual work.
Consequently, I've read countless Facebook essays and Twitter rants from college students doing what they can to decompress, and over the years I've noticed more than a few reoccurring themes that seem to pop up whenever the end of the semester rolls around.
