Getting Through Finals

I have senioritis and I’m not even a senior yet. All I know is, I want this to end. 

I love summertime more than anything, but it feels like this year, even though it’s almost May, the summer holidays aren’t ever gonna get here.

It’s hard for me to get through exams and all of the preparation for them, but I have some hacks that might help you.

Five Helpful Tips to Power Through Your Finals:

1. Make a study calendar. You can go to Walmart and find a small notebook or a calendar in notebook form. I write down what classes I need to study for each day, how much time I need to set aside for each subject, and, when finished, I put a gold star sticker on that day. (It may seem juevenile, but it works for me.)

2. Drink coffee. I like coffee, but some people– a lot of people– don’t. I use my Keurig machine with the Breakfast Blend (maybe it’s Breakfast Roast, I can’t remember right now because we’re out), two French vanilla creamers, and however many teaspoons of sugar I need. If you don’t like coffee, just drink something with caffeine. I don’t recommend Mountain Dew though. That causes cancer and kidney stones.

3. Have bribes. Not for your teachers, but for yourself. I put ten dollars at the end of each chunk of notes that I’m studying that day, and once I’m done, I go out and get something to reward myself. (I read and write way to much, but oddly not enough, so I go to Books-a-Million quite a bit.) If you don’t want to spend much money, go make yourself a sweet treat and share it with your family. (JK, keep it all for yourself and binge on “Thirteen Reasons Why.”)

I hope this helps you a little bit! And thanks for the support from the last post, it really means a lot.
