Midterms Are Over!!… So What Now?


Congratulations! You survived midterms. So what now? You could spend reading week catching up on anything you’re behind … or you can do something actually fun! If you have no idea what to or just need some inspiration, here are a few activities you could do:

Upgrade your room

Whether it’s cleaning or making your room look pretty, let’s face it, you’re in dire need of an upgrade. If you’ve been busy studying for midterms you’ve probably neglected how your room looked so now it’s time to fix that with a few Do It Yourself (DIY) projects! The following six ideas are for upgrading your walls because they’re easy and many dorms don’t have a lot of floor space.

1. Make your room more sophisticated with washi tape
2. Maximize space by using crates for shelves
3. Hang clipboards on the wall
4. Create this easy, abstract painting
5. If you’re not into abstract you can make this cute ombré painting with a message
6. Create contemporary fabric panels



Exercise is good for your heart and lungs. If you’ve been cooped up studying inside, then it’s time for fresh air. Just go for a walk or a jog with some friends if you’re not into extraneous exercising and working out. If you do want to exercise, here are two rec centres in London that host drop-ins:

Fine Dine

Ever since midterms started, have you noticed a changed in diet? If you’re like me, then you tend to eat less or less healthy when it comes to studying because you simply feel lazy or don’t have enough time.
