Finals!

The closer we get to the summer the less work I want to do. With summer right around the corner it’s hard to stay focused. The problem is a big portion of grading comes from the final week of school. My brain usually tries telling me it needs a break because finals can be a strenuous time. The last couple weeks don’t have to be stressful as long as you don’t push all the work off till the final week. Teachers give you a long heads up before final tests and papers, so stress can be avoided. Procrastinating like myself can make the last week a little more stressful. If you get in summer mode too quick then grades can take a major hit. It’s really just a matter of pushing yourself for the final week of school and finish strong. Then right after finals it’s time to sit in the sun drinking lemonade or whatever you enjoy doing in the summer. Summer is not far off, but finish strong. Good luck to everyone!
