Every student’s most dreaded time of the year has approached… FINAL EXAMS! This year I only have to take four. I was able to exempt one, so I’m relieved for that class. I like my schedule of exams and feel it will give me enough time to adequately prepare for each of them. I have one on Monday, two on Wednesday, and one on Thursday. I’m currently studying for my exam on Monday, will use part of the weekend and Tuesday to study for my Wednesday exams. Thursday’s exam isn’t one I can really study for. I am a very visual learner. I study by writing by notes and reading them aloud. I have a large dry erase board in my room I often use for note-taking. I try to keep my head clear and not stress about my final grades. I have found I am more successful on my exams when I am simply worried about the task at hand, rather than the end result. I only have one class I am worried about this semester, so that’s a relief. I’ve got lots of “study snacks” on hand for when I get those salty or sweet cravings. On the list is popcorn, chocolate chip cookie dough (by the tub), V8 Splash, French Onion Dip, and Ruffles. Now all I need is a really high metabolism and some good workout videos!
