It’s that time of the year…
It’s exam season!
It’s not hard to tell it’s that time of the year at CBU. Students are crowded in the library and cafeteria studying, studying, studying. Empty coffee cups are strewn about with text books and pages of notes. Students wear what’s most comfortable, and lose track of the time trying to tackle their to-do lists. I know the feeling!
The good thing about this time of the year, however, is that it is over in a blink of an eye. While the days may seem long, and the all-nighters longer: they fly by, providing relief when you pass the finish line.
For me, I was able to fast-forward exam season just a little bit early. As an Arts student, we are hit with countless research essays and papers to complete – instead of a more exam heavy schedule. The rush to write can be even more tiring than studying for an exam, but, you just have to power through it.
I had tons of papers to write! I am still amazed they are complete. I also wrote two exams. On my schedule now is a final course reflection – and that’s it. Last week flew by in a flash – especially because 24 hours after I finished my last exam – I hopped on a plane to Europe.
The flight was tiring, but I’ve spent the last two days catching up on sleep. And, for the next two weeks I can read (nothing course related!) and enjoy the sights and sounds of Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic.
While it can be a stressful time of year that seems it will never end, it does, and you will have your own vacation to enjoy after that! So, put in your time studying and get ready for a sweet vacation. Remember, we don’t go back to class until next year
Also: while I’m here, I will make sure to update on all of my comings and goings in the Czech Republic.
Good luck and happy studying!
