Disclaimer: this blog is a great way to distract you from what you really should be doing — prepping for finals. Around this time of year students should really be studying, but the seemingly long time until the final actually takes place causes a lot of us to wind up in the library socializing or doing useless things on our phones or laptops. In case your Instagram feed isn’t updating fast enough, here is a fun article with some random, yet interesting business facts to spice up your last few final-free days.
