In the midst of finals week. I have one final exam paper due tonight and then a paper + exam tomorrow before I’m finally done with this semester! Stressed, but also a bit depressed. It’s taking a toll on my productivity unfortunately.
What I’ve done so far today:
- eat a chicken quesadilla
- eat a mini chocolate bread thing
- sold my turnips on acnh
- open my final exam paper and just had it open in the background
- cracked open a can of thai tea
- changed my theme on tumblr after like an hour of searching
- fed Boba
That’s honestly all I’ve done so far. Writing this out is helping me get into a productive mentality though. Procrastinating on this paper is part of that fear of failure, but I know I can do it.
It’s always been so weird for me to write papers in university. I think I expected for my writing to change somehow in the transition between high school and university, but it’s honestly not noticeable. At least to myself. I feel like college level writing should be more intense, but I feel like I’m just writing how I’ve always wrote. I don’t know if that makes any sense but that’s how I feel whenever I’m writing papers for classes now. I think I don’t write very well so imagine my shock whenever I get a good grade for a paper I wrote.
Speaking of which, that paper I wrote a while back, I think I wrote about it on here last month, finally got it’s grade last night. I got a 95 on it, which was surprising to me. It’s that “I don’t think I write well because my transition from high school to college doesn’t seem like much academically.” mindset that kicks in that shock and I’m just sitting here like “Wow, I actually did that.”
I’ve rambled more than usual, but I was honestly so relieved after I got that grade for that paper. Now, I just need to work on this final exam paper, and actually believe in my capabilities. I can do this! You can too. On whatever you’re working on, whether it’s for high school, college, or beyond.
Much love, good luck on finals for any students out there, stay safe, and remember to eat and hydrate!
