The Insanity of Finals

Hello friends!

My finals week is next week. Eep!! Since I have had the “college finals” experience twice before, I now have realized what I need to do to be more successful. This semester, I have a final in every class. Last year, I had a final in about half of my classes. The good thing is that I have 1 final each day for a total of 4 finals next week. I know some people might like to have them all on just one or two days, but I prefer to have them spaced out to give me the ability to “hyper-focus” (is that a word??) on each exam.

So anyway, I have organized my next 2 weeks. Maybe over organized, but I think it will help me get things done.

First, I scheduled my morning in time increments and wrote it out (color coded of course) on my whiteboard:

**

Wakeup 6:30

Get ready(teeth, wash face, etc)

Devos 7:45

Eat 8:00

Yoga (I do a quick 15 minute yoga to wake me up and get ready for the day. it really helps!) 8:15

Get ready (hair, makeup, clothes) 8:30

Leave 8:50-9:00

–>study

–>workout after school

–>shower (on certain days)

–>study some more!

–>quick room clean

–>set out clothes, lunch, fill water bottle

–>depending on what time it is, I’ll watch an episode of something, but I try to be in bed between 9&10.

**

So that’s my general daily schedule. I think it will help keep me on track instead of procrastinating.

Next, I wrote out all of the things I know I want to do each day on a note card. There are 10 days until my last final so I drew 10 columns. At the top of each column is the day. When I finish each task I color in the box with the corresponding color sharpie☺ For the shower row, I blacked out some days and left the days blank that I expect to take a shower.

To finish off my organization frenzy, I wrote down exactly what I need to study each day for each subject in order to be ready for the final. It doesn’t look like as much when I put it on paper!

Then on the days of each exam, I wrote “exam” so I could clearly see it😃

So that’s what I am doing to maintain my sanity during finals! Somehow, organizing things like that helps ease the stress and keep me motivated.

Well, I’m off to take my last lab exam of A&P 1!!! It’s all about the brain, ear, and eye.👌
