Welcome to finals week, where everything is made up and the points don't matter.
Unfortunately, the more important a task is, the more likely I am to panic and shut down. I've probably read more books in the last three days than in the last three months. Fortunately, I have a great short term memory. Suddenly I'm having flashbacks to December of my freshman year. I'm living in a small, confined space with the same small group of people. None of us are really sure what to expect, so we prepare for the worst and hope for a miracle. Luckily, I wrote a guide to this exact scenario once upon a time. This semester, my focus is "C's Get Degrees." So far, I'm doing a little better than C's... but the sentiment is the same.
Three papers, two finals, and one midterm down. Two finals, one research paper to go. Here's to hoping I still have a future ahead of me after Friday.
