I hope everyone had a great Easter, a festive Ostara, and a
Blessed Passover. It was a low-key weekend at my house. We didn't
even make Easter baskets. Peeps were procured and cupcakes were
made, but that was about it. I spent the whole weekend working
Finals start next week. Let the panic commence! NO. No panic! We
will not panic. There will be NO panicking. OK. Now that that's
done. Given that this is the last week before finals, it's time to
get all my ducks in a row - practicing, note writing, memorizing,
preparing, and everything else!
Sometimes the organization and preparation for finals is just as
stressful as actually taking them. The last week before the tests
begin is when all the notes must be finished and the hardcore
studying takes place. For me, I learn more in the last week than I
do in the 14 weeks before. I know that it's not supposed to work
that way, but that's how I work. There's something about
solidifying everything and repetition, repetition, repetition. I
will, actually, be studying up until I walk in to take each test.
I'm doing my best to not repeat the events of last tri's finals.
I existed most of the last finals week on caffeine and very little
sleep. I don't remember whether I was eating or eating anything
remotely respectable, but I suspect I wasn't. So, that will not
happen this time. Here are a few suggestions that I'm pulling
together for this tri's finals for myself--and all of
Andrea's suggestions for finals
OK. Enough of that. So I wish you all a happy finals preparation
and a happy spring and all of that other stuff. If you're getting
antsy while you're studying, take a break. It really will make
things go smoother. See you all on the flip-side.
