10 Reasons Why Beyonce Will Motivate You For Finals

By  |  0 Comments

I’m just going to say it, but don’t get mad at me—finals are approaching. That means grouchy moods, overworked brains and a constant state of annoyance will be the new normal. While I advise that some suffer through this hard time with bag of junk food in hand, others should use an inspirational figure of our time to get through that philosophy final. That’s right, I’m talking about Beyoncé. Her status as arguably the hardest-working diva in the game represents just the sort of hard-working badass we need to embody during finals season. Take some of these truly inspirational Beyoncé moments as ammunition to get through these last few weeks. As the saying goes, you have the same 24 hours in a day as Beyoncé, so killing finals shouldn’t be impossible right?

1. She almost fell at the Super Bowl, but if she can recover, so can your GPA

2. She’s a loving mom, so you can call yours and let her know that even though it’s finals season, you’re still alive (for now)

3. She can perform four albums for an hour straight, so you can study in the library for 10 without complaining

4. She is able to have friends and get her shit done, so you can study with friends and do the same

5. She has a relationship and remains successful, so you shouldn’t blame your significant other for your not going to class all semester

6. She is such an overachiever, that she releases work unannounced…eh, you can at least get your final paper in by the deadline

7. She ignites conversation about social justice in a song, so you can take an exam about colonialism without complaining

8. She’s literally friends with everyone, so be a pal and lend your biology notes to a fellow classmate

9. She advocates for feminism, so you should do the same for your women’s studies final

10. She increases the revenue of local businesses, so you should treat yourself to a fancy dinner when finals is over
