Ah. The lovely sense of completion when you turn in your last project/finish your last final/have no more academic responsibilities for a semester.
That sense of completion is immediately followed by consternation about what to do next. I have some ideas for you. Continue reading
Actually, the title is inaccurate. This guide also works for the weeks approaching finals.
1. Check out 5 or 6 books from the library. Fiction only, and nothing that will ever appear on your syllabi.
2. Play endless levels of *insert game here* Continue reading
Quick update: I am smack dab in the middle of my finals week (started Saturday, which was horrible). So far it is going splendiforically and given my current laissez-faire approach to studying, that’s a VERY good thing! No fever or hospital stay yet (did I tell you guys that story about last semester’s finals? No? *Puts on to-do list of posts*) and so far no late nights studying. I’m not kidding guys! It’s finals week and I’ve gotten as much sleep as I do any other week of school! The only sad thing is that I need to start packing and cleaning and I don’t want to. Packing is sad and makes things look barren….anywho, I have 4 more finals and then my freshman year of college will be finished! Woohoo!!!
Other college students, are you surviving finals week?
(Yes, it’s very possible that this post was the result of procrastinating from studying. Don’t judge!)
My first year of college is almost over. Let that sink in….do you have any idea how far away this has seemed? All the times during childhood that college was only a far-off dream…and now my first year is done! With the finish line looming and various academic pressures removed from my brain, I have started brainstorming a number of posts about my conclusions from this first year. I say a number of posts because there is so much to tell that one post would inevitably be TL:DR.
So, what illustrious topics will this series of posts cover? Allow me to whet your appetite!
In no specific order:
friends * growth * academics * personality changes * responsibility * distance and relationships * respect * family
I plan to write most of those posts in the next few weeks, interspersed with my usual commentary on literature and some issues that came up in my studies. In just over a week I will be back home with loads of free time! Totally kidding…I will be home, but not with free time….the full-time job and 15 credits of online classes will be running my life.
Other students….observations on the end of the year? Is it stressful? Fulfilling?
Readers in general, any of the topics I mentioned seem especially interesting? Comment and let me know. 🙂 I might make it my first post!
