It’s The Final Countdown
The time has come: finals week. Per usual, finals week is always a stressful time for all of us, and I can tell that I’m feeling it. I definitely didn’t expect the semester to turn out the way it did, and something also makes me feel glad that we at least made it to the end.
Take a Deep Breath
Now, I can guarantee that I’m not the only one who is slightly stressed about finals. However, I think that good preparation will be key. Since we are home, we have plenty of time to get studying done! Also, I want to make sure to meet with and email my teachers as much as I can in order to receive help. Plus, coming up with a schedule for the week will be really important. Keeping track of your tests and when to study is always a good idea to help us stay on track.
Don’t Stop Believing
Along with our stress, I understand that a lot of us will face fear and anxiety as well. With this in mind, I think that there is one thing everyone should remember going into finals: There is always an opportunity to do amazing. No matter how you stand in a class or how the past few months have gone, there is always a chance to do amazing on the final! So this semester, go in facing finals with confidence and I know we can do great.
