Finals…finally!

by Anna on April 20, 2017

in Academics,College Life

Hello, everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing Easter break — maybe with friends and family and/or doing something you enjoy.  I (as usual) had tons of homework to do, but I did enjoy an Easter lunch with my dad’s family (got to see my two young cousins, always adorable and entertaining!) and an Easter egg hunt with my horses!  They each found six eggs filled with clover, carrots, or marshmallows, and of course they loved it immensely.  In case you haven’t figured it out yet, my horses are spoiled. 🙂

If you’ve read my past blogs, you’ll know this semester has been quite a bit different than last semester.  At 18 hours, commuting, working, and just trying to stay afloat, it’s been stressful to say the least.  The upcoming two weeks probably aren’t going to be much different, but I do feel better going into these final weeks than I thought I would at the beginning of the semester.  I have three labs to wrap up, a presentation/report to give, lots of homework, and studying galore for finals, but then before I know it, it will all be over!  Fortunately, I don’t have more than one final on any given day, so it won’t be too unbearable (I hope), and by May 6 at 11:59 p.m., I must have completed everything with my online class and will be done with my second semester of college.  It’s hard to believe that when I return in August, I’ll be a sophomore.  Note to self: time flies by much faster than you think!

Good luck to everyone with finals…hang in there, you’re just a hop, skip, and a jump away!

Blessings,

~Anna

Crazy to see how time flies! I can’t believe this semester is almost over, it went really fast for me, and I am sure for a lot of other people too. Even though these last three weeks will be stressful, I want to recall that this semester has been great. It has been a semester of learning and good experiences. I really have enjoyed my major classes, I started doing observations practices at different schools and it has been a great way to get involved in the field of education. I have met very nice people, and I have explored new places in this beautiful city. So glad of completing this year, and so ready for the next one! Good luck to everyone with all the final assignments and exams!

Summer is around the corner!

The last two week of the semester are the most stressful. Almost as stressful as Finals week itself. Making sure that you have asked off work or organized your time around work and making sure you have everything you need to get all of your projects done, papers written, and studying done for finals. Successful preparing for finals week can make the actual finals much easier and less stressful. By starting early, it is easier to plan out what needs to be done by when so that you can be as successful and possible and not worry about finishing everything or forgetting something. Some tips include:

  • Making a timeline of when you want to work on the final for each class
  • Set a day or time for each class
  • Set a certain portion of each class final for each day
  • Set study breaks
  • Plan in distraction time (we all need a break and sometimes a 30-minute nap can really save you)
  • Get good snacks and drinks when you start studying (sometimes a drink run can turn into too long of a distraction)
  • Set a solid playlist to help you stay focused

Whatever you do, you are going to be successful if you put your mind to it. Good luck and know you are in the home stretch!

Xoxo,
Claire

Springitis

by Cecelia on April 20, 2017

in Academics,College Life

When you’re a college student April is probably the worst month of the whole year. April is the last month before you’re released from summer, meaning that at this point you have multiple papers to finish, exams to study for, trying to maneuver your next year schedule, housing applications, and applying to every summer job/internship available in your area, while everyone keeps asking about your summer plans. At this point, you can’t even find time to go for a run or a quick coffee at your favorite spot.  You thought last year senioritis was bad, well springitis is even worse!

Here are some questions that will most likely  recognize if you have springitis:

  • Should I do my homework? Or should I lay out in the 80 degree weather?
  • Did the teacher say group project?
    • How am I supposed to gather a group of several people, who only want to think about summer. HOW!
  • How many days left until I can leave?
  • How many miles away is the beach?
  • 20 Days. (5 minutes later) is it still 20 days?
  • Excuse me, professor, what is your attendance policy?

Springitis is a real issue. Repeat: REAL ISSUE. If you haven’t been affected by springitis I advise you to remain in the library, focused, and with a mask on. Unfortunately, I have come down with springitis, and my doctor prescribed ice cream, enjoying the weather, and the occasional study session. For those who haven’t felt the effect of summer being right around the corner, save yourself before it’s too late, and find a cure for the rest of us.

Finals are Coming Up…

by Jessica April 20, 2017

How do I prepare for it? Well, I’ll be honest, I am already overwhelmed with projects and it has been weighing on me like a ball and chain since Spring Break. In short, I’m so burnt out I don’t really care. However, that doesn’t mean I will forget about it. To me, Finals are the […]

The Woes of a College Student

by Jessica April 18, 2017

When you go to college, keep this in mind:  the breaks are a lie. You’ll rarely get a homework-free break.  Even if the teacher gives you an assignment that wouldn’t be due until a month later, that still puts pressure on you.  It plants a nagging seed in your brain that bugs you, whispering, “You […]
