FInals week! Who doesn’t enjoy studying all the crap you’ve learned from the beginning of the semester and then being tested about those crap? Finals calls for crunch time, lockdown at the library, with study groups or at the convenience of your own room. I personally enjoy studying at my apartment because going to the library means every classmate is there pretending to be studying. In reatilty, some are trying to be seen, and me going to the library actually means i have to dress up and look presentable. I enjoy the confort of my own home when studying and that below zero degree weather here in DeKalb does not inspire me to step my foot out the door.
Finals week hasn’t really been horrific for me because, i had projects instead of cumulative exams. The problem, however, is procrastinating those projects and leaving them to the end. I had to create a professional website, prepare a public relaitons plan and then present it to the class, also had to get ready for the unknown in my Graphics Communications class.
I’m very proud to say that I survived finals week without having an anxiety or feeling overwhelmed. Making a To Do List saved my life and kept me on track. But, those times of when your finals were to be taken actually screwed me up, i went to class thinking my final was at a cerain when it was actually scheduled for a different day. I TWEAK A LOT.
Right now i just continue to pray that the grading curves are on my side.
