As you can tell by the title and the time of year, finals are coming up. At least for me and the people in my area.
I’m trying my best not to have a mntal breakdown right now. No, my job and school work are not beginning to be too much for me. I is just that time of year when all of the teachers start giving us projects, lots of tests and quizes, study guides, and stress. My birthday is also coming up and it just so happens that I will have two finials on that day, but at least that day is a half day so it won’t be so bad (hopefully).
All the teachers are preparing us for finals, which means we’ll be getting tons of study guides. I’ve already gotten my chemistry study guide. Speaking of chemistry, my teacher decided to give us a project two weeks before the break. We are to figure out how to make a coloimeter and use it to conduct a series of experiments. He wants us to 3D print the parts and figure out how to wire the coloimeter without electricuting ourselves. We also have to do a ton of math, spreadsheets, and a lecture explaining our process of making and executing our plans. This is all due in three class periods (16 days inluding weekends). I just sent my teacher a super long paragraph asking how we are supposed to finish all of this in that amount of time, because one of the sections gets a whole day for their presetations, so that will be a class period where we don’t get to work on the project.
My math teacher has been giving us tests every class period. He says, “It’s the season of giving, so I’m giving you another test.” My lowest grade is in that class (I have an 85 as of now). I hope I do really good on his test. He says he’s gonna give us a study guide we can work on for the last few classes until the final.
My lnguage arts class is the only most normal class right now. My teacher isn’t giving us a ton of work, just the usual. We do have the performance final (writting an essay, probably) on Friday for that class which just so happens to be on my birthday, but I don’t think it will take up the entire class.
My world history final is also on my birthday and I don’t think that on will take up the entire class period either. I just got a 100 on one of our test and I always do pretty good on his test, so I think I’ll do fine.
I’m not sure if we are going to have a test in my technology test and if we do it won’t take up the entire class period.
I know we are going to have tests in Spanish, because my teacher always gives us tests and she said that’s what we’ll be doing the rest of the semester.
On the last day I’m going to have my writer’s worshop final. That day we also have the chemistry class where we have the project we only have 3 class periods to finish.
So, the only thing that helps me relax and keep my mind of of school and all the stress attached to it is my job, which is probably kind of weird. Ipersonally find it relaxing to talk to people that I normally would never talk to. I also feel like when I stay at home I don’t acommplish anything and I just get depressed because of it.
I bought a film camera a few weeks ago and I haven’t gotten the oportunity to try it out, so I’m hoping I can get to use it on Thursday, which is the only day this week I don’t have anything planned for.
