Preparing for Finals

My freshman year I was so done and tired and I felt like I had had a cold for 3 months that I barely  prepared for finals. I studied, but I didn't prepare, and I didn't do well. I didn't know how. Preparing physically and mentally for finals helps make studying for finals so much less stressful!

I'm one of those people who love getting new school supplies. Not just in a small way, in a 'I walk around staples for fun making notes about what I should get for next semester months ahead of time' way.

A Guide to Stress Free Finals

If I've learned one thing this past year in college it's that planning ahead is everything.  I am not taking any summer classes, but this summer I will be studying - a lot.  In high school getting A's came easy to me; I didn't have to do much work, and I always seemed to grasp concepts easily.  But college is a whole other ball game. 

My life for the past two weeks has been nothing but school work, studying, more school work, actual work, and making sure I got to sleep and eat in between those times. Let me tell you, a study break is very necessary sometimes.
