#TisTheSeason Part II
Yes it’s Christmas time. Yes we are celebrating we get two weeks off. Yes we love this time of the year. Except one thing… Finals. It is not only the season to celebrate the birth of our Lord, but also the season to cram, stress, and go crazy. People around campus react differently to study for finals. There are many different ways to prepare (or not prepare for some) and I will discuss a few.
The Crammer- This is the person who tries to ignore the fact that finals are rapidly approaching. This person will do whatever it takes to not study until the last minute and then freak out during their cramming session. It is a bold strategy, and sometimes plays out great for people.
The Worker- This is the person who spends hours upon hours in the library during the weeks leading up to finals. This person is stressed but knows the preparation being put in will prove itself worth it when grades are published. I suggest this strategy for all college students.
The “Non-Worrier”- This is me. I study for tests, and normally pull off good enough grades. When it comes crunch time though, I pull the old “I either know it, or I don’t” and it’s the end of my studying. For instance, I have a test in 45 minutes and instead of being The Crammer, I decide to blog about ways to study. Definitely not the best strategy, but in all honesty I think I have prepared myself well enough throughout the semester that I can pull the “No Worries” card and get away with it. I guess we will find out if that holds true in 45 minutes. Wish me luck! Go Pilots!
