You’ve made it to the end of the semester and the school year. You may have a few finals to finish up. Don’t stress, we’ve got you covered.

Read Vicious by V.E. Schwab.
Eli Ever and Victor Vale are pre-med majors, best friends and roommates. When Eli discovers a way to potentially create people with extraordinary abilities, he puts himself to the test and drags Victor along as well. Ten years later, Victor is escaping from jail and determined to find and kill Eli. As their paths start crossing again, a trail of bodies begin to emerge and innocent people are getting pulled into the story of two people walking the thin line between hero and villain.

Listen to If I Can’t Have You by Shawn Mendes.

The Canadian singer-songwriter is back with a new single, just in time for summer. With a steady drum beat, catchy lyrics and a clever layering of vocals, this is exactly the song you need while taking a study break before finals. While this song returns Mendes to his pop roots, it’s his easy vocal control and smart musical choices that make this stand out from his early albums and different from what he released last summer.

Watch Attack on Titan.
The world has been enclosed within three large walls for as long as anyone can remember. These walls protect humans from the titan creatures that anyone who ventures outside may face. No one knows why the titans exist or where they came from, but the people dedicated to finding out are part of an elite military force. The Survey Corp is the most dangerous of them all, tasked with leaving the walls to gather data on the titans. Eren Yager is determined to be part of the Survey Corp as revenge for his mother’s death and destroy titans once and for all. But being part of the military proves more dangerous and secretive than he ever imagined.

Content warning: Violence, gore and disturbing deaths.

Watch Avengers: Endgame.
Let’s be real here, if you haven’t seen this yet, you probably should. The Avengers are gathering for their last big battle to save the world, and they’re determined to make sure that everyone makes it out alive. After all, what’s the point of being Earth’s Mightiest Heroes if there isn’t an Earth to protect?

Although, if you haven’t seen the first 21 movies, you might feel a little lost.

Take a walk.
As the sun decides to make an appearance every few days, take advantage of the warmth by taking a walk. Put in your headphones and walk by the breeches in between preparing for finals. Grab a friend or your significant other for a stroll and see which of you ends up with more bug bites. If you’re really ambitious, take a run through the fitness trail and enjoy the weather before humidity really takes over for the summer.
