Studying stinks because.....

1. My poor little brain has had 9 years since I took a class on campus to shrink to the size of a pea.

2. After hours of organizing my notes my little pea brain feels like it is going to explode. It is like when you put a raisin into boiling water, eventually the raisin expands and doesn't look at all like its former self. Think bloated raisin.

3. I have run my fingers through my hair so much that it has started to look like a limp dishrag.

4. My back hurts from bending over this darn laptop.

5. I have about 34 pages of typewritten notes going over such topics as the French Revolution, American Revolution, Europe's position of hegemony in the 16th century, classicism, the scientific revolution, slave trade, etc. etc. And I cannot possibly remember everything in those notes. Why can't it be an open note test? Sometimes teachers do that, and I would rock on this test because I have been an excellent note taker. Maybe begging would help? Doubt it.

6. It is now 9:58 p.m. and I need some down time from studying, but it is too late because I have to wake up at 5:30. I have a whopping two days to get all this history crap into my head, oh and I failed to mention that my biology midterm is also in two days. My poor, poor pea brain.

Other than the above six reasons that studying stinks, life is pretty good. The only way I get myself through tough times like this is to say "In exactly 48 hours I will be feeling SOOOOOOO good!"

Catcha then!

I still am so impressed that you've gone back to school. Best of luck in the next 48 hours. Those tests can be brutal.

Jeanna, I was waiting around all day for you to post. I was so glad to see it right before I went to bed. Anyways, good luck with mid-terms. I feel your pain right now. We'll party though this weekend!!

Jeanna,
I've always known that you are brilliant! Don't underestimate yourself. Be the little engine that could. I'll be sending lot's of positive prayers and energy your way for the next couple of days. GOOD LUCK!

you can do it! it always works out that all the "mess" in your head unravels itself into an organized fashion and you'll remember everything you need to for your test! i used to think like you - "in x time i'll be so happy." since i've been out of school it's turned into "in 5 days i'll be able to sleep in." i think you have it harder than me....
good luck!

I think you're crazy to go back to school....just joking. I really do admire your determination, motivation, and good sense of humor. Honestly, I never knew you were so funny...we need to sit together at family parties more. You will rock your tests! Katie
