R.I.P Mind

Finals.

Ugh. I hate that word. It carries so much anxiety. I mean, seriously, I could be in the happiest mood on the planet, and then you say, "Finals..." and it ruins it.

When I actually think about it, though, finals aren't as bad as the rest of the semester. I mean, the rest of the semester you have to go to classes, do assignments, and take tests. All you have to do for finals is take tests and do a few assignments. But here's my problem with them. Studying. I hate studying. With a paper, you write it, you know when you're finished and you turn it in. With studying, you have an outline that tells you things you have to remember, you never feel like you're prepared enough, and then you go in and have to try to remember all of the things you tried to memorize. It's awful.

What's worse, is that this semester, I have a scheduled final every day, plus one that I can take any time during the week. Every semester I've been at BYU I've been able to finish my finals in the first three days and had a week and a half break until Christmas. But this semester I have to stay the entire week. Lame.

But, the good news is, I passed my Praxis.
