9 Facts That Are Completely Irrelevant to Midterms

Midterms are trying to take over my life. I have reached a point in my life where I procrastinate studying for midterms by spending hours viewing GIFs about the pain I feel while preparing for them. This post is aimed at ending the hold these exams have on our lives. Here are nine facts that have absolutely nothing to do with those exams.

5. Some people fear that somewhere, somehow a duck is watching them. The condition is called anatidaephobia.
