Well, it’s that time of the year again.
University students will definitely be able to relate.
I have exactly ten days of classes left in this semester. While this may seem like a point of celebration, I find myself wishing the semester was longer.
Can’t I just have twenty more days of classes? Or ten days off with no classes before exams? Or write final exams last week and finish classes with no exams afterwards?
Better yet…let’s just do away with final exams altogether. Everyone learns different anyway…and standardized tests are pretty much the root of all evil…
Yeah, I actually don’t believe that, but it does help me channel some stress and frustration so I can get back to actually thinking about studying (as opposed to worrying about studying).
So yes, I do find myself in panic mode once again, because it is that time of the year. My first final exam is on April 12th. That’s pretty much a week and a half after Easter. Will I ever get to enjoy Easter again?
Or am I doomed to spend the rest of my Easters buried in textbooks, frantically trying to make sure I haven’t missed anything in my reviews.
And that’s really the worst part – getting to a final exam and then realizing you forgot to study a chapter or a section, or you just totally blanked and can’t remember a damn thing. When this happens and you realize you’re pretty much screwed, there’s not much you can do.
Except for maybe this:
This post seems a little frantic to me…but that’s kind of the state my mind is in right now. One moment I’m all excited because I remembered how to form le plus que parfait but that is quickly crushed when I find out I mixed it up with the plu perfect in Latin.
Now I need a dormir. Or is j’ai besoin de sleep? Necessito…?
After all of these languages, I just don’t know anymore. I’m not even studying les linguistiques...I just thought it would be fun to take multiple language classes at the same time so that I can confuse que and que and que. And this, children, is why phonics sux.
Thanks for reading.
Until our next adventure together (where I’m hopefully less crazy and more sane),
