I can’t believe we’re here and I’m writing a blog post called “exams.” It feels just like yesterday when I was writing a blog post called “shopping week.” It’s just kindaaaa scary.

But let’s not worry. Let’s celebrate! We’ve made it this far through the semester, we have May Day to look forward to, and then it’s all about showing off what we’ve learned!

Last week of classes!

I think we get scared to ask questions the further we get in the year. Because after a semester at college, we’re supposed to know everything now, right??? But my advice is, if you’re in a hole, don’t keep digging (I got this advice from some book I read). Do NOT be afraid to keep asking questions during this last week of classes. Professors want to help and want you to do well. Just make sure that you ask good questions (an underrated skill!) and not ask for answers.

Check out this post for a fun collection of GIFs from last year when there were just two weeks left in the year.

Sleep is good, life is good

I had the craziest beginning of the week, staying up the latest I’ve stayed, and for two consecutive nights, trying to get my labs in on time. It was a pretty miserable time. I got worried, I got stressed, and the littlest things would send me into panic.

But once I got those labs in, I slept very well the next two nights, and my outlook completely switched. I was ready to seize the day, motivated to stay on top of things and focus in class so that I wouldn’t find myself where I was at the beginning of the week.

Remember, a bad day, a bad few days, or even a bad week, doesn’t mean that it’s a bad life <3
