Signs of hell week:
-Begging your teachers not to assign big tests/assignments during said week
-Not studying or preparing at all for the tests/assignments that get assigned anyways
-Not talking to people in the cast/crew during school because you know you're going to see them for hours after school anyways
-Stealthily dancing behind the curtains....come on, you know you do it!
-By Wednesday, it is nessecary to bring air freshener into the dressing room and the person who does is a hero
-Losing part your custume at some point during the week
-Some one will cry
-If you're not a theatre kid, then it's easy to tell the people who are because they're falling asleep in class
-Wearing your production T shirt all week
-If you're smart enough to stock up on food before rehearsal...you better hide it!
-You're used to the squeaks and other horrible noises that the microphones make during the first few days
-By the end of the last performance, everyone is family and most cry
Extra: *hugs* *cries too*
Supporting role: Hell week is so worth it!
In Hell Week, many students' imaginations run wild in an attempt to rationalize 'why this is happening to them.' Some will consider dropping out & going to work 'full-time' at the Subway they currently work at. Others (most, in fact) will go through 4 stages during hell week:
Denial: You party the weekend before, procrasturbate instead of writing your paper & spend time pointlessly stalking everyone you never knew on facebook; you can always cram, right?
Anger: You begin to look at what you need to study or write. How could they assign this much material? Are they insane? This is inhumane-you should contact the ACLU!
Fear: It's the night before your first tests, & you're freaking out. You've no idea why there’re 1,052 ways to conjugate this word in that stupid-ass-language & you really don't care what the hell a derivative is. What're your parents going to say when you tank these tests? Shit it's 11:30pm & the fuckin unstarted paper is due after those exams!
Acceptance: In the final minutes leading up to the tests you finally realize all you can do is bend over your desk & let the subjects you despise so much violently violate you in the worst ways imaginable.
Karl: Welcome to Hell Week
If none of this applies to you becuase you think that frats are stupid and infantile, please see GDI.
2. Before the enormous final, an academic hell week began. There was non-stop studying, there seemed to be an unwritten law against sleep, and the neighborhood Starbucks made incredible amounts of money.
Person 2: Welcome to Hell Week.
Usually military related, sports teams and fraternities and sororities.
Once off the bus, the army recruits were stripped of their personal belongings and it was followed by intense interval training as a hell week introduction.
