Any college student (or former college student) will tell you that finals week is tough. It’s the one acceptable week where you can live in your pajamas, shut out the rest of the world, and make your textbooks your best friends. It is such a stressful time that people feel as if they can barely make it out alive. But there are some people who manage to do it all. Like, for example, this new mom finishing her finals while in labor who will put all of your memories of finals week to shame.
This photo of the mom has been circulating on Twitter for a very good reason — it highlights just how strong and powerful women are, especially during the times of extreme stress (from multiple places). In the photo, new mom Nayzia Thomas sits in a hospital bed, looking calm and collected, while an open textbook sits at her side and her laptop remains poised on her lap.
“My mom took this picture and it’s the perfect explanation of my life,” Thomas captioned the photo. “Yes, I’m about to have a baby but finals season aint over yet.” This could be a perfect explanation for 2017 — while there might be huge events going on in your world (and the world around you), there is always something else that needs to be done.
People seem to agree, as the tweet has now gained over 100,000 likes because it is that powerful.
