Finals Countdown

It’s almost that time, we’re inching closer and closer to finals and while the end of the quarter seems so close there are still those massive hurdles known as finals. If you’ve been doing great all quarter, I completely understand how easy it is to begin slacking off in the final weeks. But stay focused! All it takes is one missed assignment, bad test score, or lackluster presentation to drop your grade below what you needed. I often have a hard time focusing in the final weeks as I just want things to be over and have felt I’ve done more than enough over the past ten weeks. But contrary to how most view the quarter system I feel it is a marathon, not a sprint. You need to finish strong and that means not waiting till the last minute to start assignments that will surely take hours. As someone who suffers from senioritis, every day I struggle to start things at a reasonable time in lieu of wanting to socialize or do anything but school work. But as fun as those weekend plans may seem they’re never as fun if the thought of impending homework is creeping up in the back of your head. So, enjoy your fun as you should without the worry of exams you haven’t studied for, PowerPoints you haven’t made, and essays you haven’t written. You got to work hard to play hard, so keep your tunnel vision and do the very best you can to end the quarter!​
