Exam Time!

It’s the last week of classes here at Muskingum, with exams looming next week. But here’s my secret for future college students… it’s not the finals you have to worry about, it’s the week that comes before that makes you want to tear your hair out. Especially if, like this year, you come back from Thanksgiving break and have to hit the ground running.

Even though next week will be the one filled with tests, there isn’t a normal class schedule during exam week, and chances are you have two finals at most on a single day… more often there’s just one final to worry about daily. So you’ve got plenty of time to study in between exams.

The week before… that’s secretly the killer week. Every project for every class is all of a sudden due, and you look back at the syllabus and find a few more random assignments here and there that you had completely forgotten about. And then, if you’re a music student like I am, your evenings are still peppered with rehearsals and Christmas performances and cramming to memorize the lyrics to the songs that you have to perform in front of the entire voice faculty in just a week. Plus, you still have to, you know, attend all of your classes.

What doesn’t help is the fact that all you want to do is curl up in bed and watch Christmas movies and drink hot chocolate.

On that note, I will wrap up this post. Unfortunately not for an evening of hot chocolate consumption, but hopefully for a productive evening that will leave me at least a little less stressed.
