Anyone who has ever endured the utter brutality that is college finals week knows how trying it can be on the mind, body, and soul. Hours spent studying the same texts over and over, pulling all-nighters, consuming an ungodly amount of coffee, and many emotional breakdowns are just a few of the necessary evils that come along with exams.
One college student named Alana is no stranger to the trials of finals week. In fact, she became so overwhelmed after taking one of her most difficult exams that she emailed her professor a photo of herself crying and he actually responded.
If you’ve ever taken a college final you know exam week usually looks something like this:
University of Rochester student Hannah Foster and her classmate Alana Ferris are no strangers to these emotions and recently endured the horrors of finals week.
In fact, Alana was so overwhelmed by the difficulty of her chemistry final that she decided to share her emotions with the professor in a heartfelt email.
We feel you, girl.
Believe it or not, the professor actually responded and apologized for Alana’s strife.
Hannah later shared the entire exchange on Twitter.
