End of Semester blues??????

  1. This is the first time this has happened to me.... I am stressssssing over my final projects/papers, the upcoming finals and applying to Nursing school.

    I know it's the combined stress, I just find myself overwhelmed to the point of tears..... not something I normally do.

    I have to finish a term paper and power point presentation this weekend for Microbio plus get ready for 2 huge finals in 2 weeks.... microbio and physiology. I have an A in both (which I really need to keep)..... I am a good student and normally enjoy the challenge of tests. I am soooooo dreading these!

    Anyone else going thru this?????

    I know I should be overjoyed that my pre-req's are finally almost over, I'm going on a fabulous trip in June and yet all I want to do is cry.....

    I guess i just want to hear that this is not so unusual.... I'm just not a cryer and this is buuuuuuging me that it's effecting me like this.

    Any suggestions aside from buying stock in Kleenex corp?????

    Thanks and sobby HUGS!

    I'm gonna wash my face and head on off to microbio lab and finish my unknowns.... at least that is fun.

    Oh do I ever feel this way!!! I think my study buddies in my A&P I class think I've gone crazy.

    I have set the curves on all the tests (actually made it where no one got a curve on one b/c I made a 100 on the lab practical). For some reason I am really scared! It is coming so close to the end, and I am scared I will bomb the last lab or last lecture and end up with a B.

    Right now, the only think holding me from pulling my hair out is the fact that I can make 70's on my last lab & lecture tests in A&P I. My Dev Pysch class is going good too, but the last test could make me get a B.

    I really, really, really want an A in Dev Psych, but I HAVE to get an A in A&P I.

    So, let's hang in there...TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND MAKE OUR A'S!!!!!!!

    good luck!

    Yep, I hear ya. I keep vacillating between stressing and not caring. My Micro teacher has goofed around all semester - letting us go early and discussing her personal life, so now it's crunch time; two tests in two weeks. My English class is sheer torture - a paper, a presentation and a cumulative final all within two weeks - constituting 45% of the grade for the semester (yikes). Luckily, I'm ahead in Biology and can coast the rest of the semester...I'll be so glad when it's all over...hang in there, we can get through this!

    Yeah I hear you. I am DONE. I mean DONE. I have 3 more tests to get through ( lab final/ Lecture test/ Lecture final) and they ALL occur within 3 WEEKS.

    Not only that...but I know I have only 16 days off before summer session.. I need more like a few months. Hah!

    I have been extremely disciplined all semester and while I am still..I am finding it VERY HARD to keep focus ( hard to study when it' sbeautiful outside!)

    These 3 weeks I am sure will fly by...but right about now... I just want to be done. I think smoke is going to start flowing from my ears soon.

    Luckily there are no curves in my two classes.... at least I don't have anyone gonna get mad at me for that.... and I feel for ya there!

    One issue I have right now is that, as flattering as it is, classmates keep coming to me for help with their projects. Today I was burnt and yet I spent time helping one girl figure out her unknown when mine wasn't even finished yet! I am running out of time... when did this semester suddely get so short??? lol

    Hang in there too!

    Hugs!

    Oh my gosh!! I can't even imagine going thru this class without a great Prof.

    (((((((JKMom)))))))!!

    Okay.... I feel better about my situation, but sad about what you are going thru. You hang in there too! I can see your frustration.

    Hugs!

    Sorry about the summer session...... I did that last year. I took a 4 unit spanish class to get my Humanities out of the way. It was fun, but I sure wanted to take the summer off.

    I understand about the lack of focus right now. I am just NOT THERE in my studying. This is the first semester to have this Spring Fever hit.

    So I took tonight off, am setting the alarm for early in the morning and am going to try setting a timer for mandatory breaks every 90 minutes. I have to get my last term paper and presentation done before Monday. Yikes!!!!

    Okay... gonna surf a bit more then hit the sack for a good night sleep.

    Remember to take breaks.... it does help!

    Hugs!
