Ending Without the Pain

(Building Jaws Music) Duh dum. Duh dum. (Speeding up) Duh dum duh dum duh dum. DUN DUN!!!!! Lets all thank my imaginary tech crew and orchestra for that lovely imaginary song they just played us. Really, really nice work guy, you can take five. Voice's in background say, "Thank you five." Well I only have five minutes here to chat with because my crew is on break so lets make this post short and sweet. Not really sweet though,  if you know what I mean. But you most likely don't because I haven't actually told you what this post is about or what in the world the dramatic intro was for. Well here's your answer to both questions, THE QUARTER IS ENDING AND IT'S SNEAKING UP FAST! So this post is all about how to keep up with the craziness of a quarter end. Or as my french final said it, fin du premier semester. (So technically that means end of first semester but whatever.)

The trick to doing well on you rend of the quarter finals is to stay clam. Picture one of those clique pictures with the stay clam and do whatever things. Those are the best. But I'm not joking the more worked up and worried you get they more you are sabotaging yourself of a successful score. Assuming that you study and learned what you need to over the course of the quarter there is nothing else that you can do. So go to be super early (if you aren't cramming) eat a nice healthy breakfast.

The last little trick that I have for finals week is move to Finland. I hear that in Finland tests are optional. And lets be honest, even if your calm and well rested, no test is so much better every time.

Children in Finland don't have to study and have time to paint their faces.  (Photo Creds)

2. That One Grade...
If you're a normal person chances are you don't have perfect grades while entering this dreaded period. And if you're normal you most likely have one of two classes that are gonna be grilling the bad of your mind until you get it/them up. The best thing that you can do is make sure that you don't have a sing zero in that class. Just one assignment where you have a zero is going to majorly affect the overall grade. Remember even if your teacher has a 'strict' no late work policy, there is literally no risk in asking because the worst they could say is no, which they already have. The next thing that you can do is try to just do SUPER amazing on the last couple of things that go into your grade. As long as that grade is higher than your overall grade its not gonna make it go down. If it's enough higher it could add percentage or two. The last and final thing you can do is just simply go ask the teacher what you can do to bring it up, because like I said what's the worst that could happen?

3. Sleep 
Chances are between trying to bring that grade up and studying for finals you are gonna wanna stay up late to get it all done. Don't fall into that trap. I mean you should study and work as much as you can but if that clock starts to approach midnight, it's time to call in the towel. At that point chances are you aren't gonna learn anything and you are gonna be miserable the next day. You might even feel as sad as I look in the following photograph.

Don't worry, I was rather joyful. (just bad timing)

Well I gotta get back to that studying thing, ew. Anyways....

Blog ya later fellow quirks.
