    Has anyone else found themselves with a nasty sickness right after finals ended? I was lucky enough to develop a lovely case of bronchitis this semester!

    I usually get at least a little sick after finals, because of lack of sleep, stress and not eating as well and exercising as much as i should

    I'm out of school so no finals for me, but I caught the flu right after my last interview for the year.

    That usually doesn't happen to me, but I remember when I studied abroad, I slacked off most of the semester, so when it came down to finals week, I stayed up for 3-4 days straight studying. I ended up getting A or A- in all my classes but I developed a case of shingles when I got back to the US.
