What's On My Mind Today: I have a unique experience for the first time as an undergrad, NO FINALS! I will have to come to class to turn in assignments and get my final grades but I don't have one final and I am so excited. Even though I don't have formal final, I have a major paper assignment due in each of my classes if not more than one. But that is all good because writing is what I do!
I will not be doing note cards, staying up all night and hibernating this semester. I will not turn into one of the many people who live in the library searching for a quiet place. Yaaaaahhhhhhooooooo!
To those of you who have to do the study thing, here are a few suggestions, don't procrastinate. Start your study process, a few weeks in advance (NOW), especially if your final is cumulative. Study in the way usually study (examples: note cards, re-reading your notes, etc.) then give it a day or two and do it another way (examles: writing definition/key terms, reading book chapters, etc.). But the most important thing you can do is get a good nights sleep, DO NOT stay up all night cramming.
Good luck on your finals...I will be thinking of you as I chill and wait for my A's to roll in!
