Good Night and Good Luck

I should not be blogging right now. Plain and simply, this should not be occurring. However, blogging has become a solace for me. Some people knit, some people smoke. Me? I blog.

This is the last week of regular classes for me, making next week 'exam week.'
None of my professors are utilizing exam week. Well, for two classes I still have to show up to an exam period, but I don’t have to do, take or turn in anything...just annoyingly show up. Sounds great, right? Well, not really because what that means is that EVERYTHING… papers, performances, projects… is due in like the next 36 hours!

I should not be blogging right now.

So, though I have not yet seen the George Clooney movie of the same name, I say Good Night, and to all the college students enduring what I’m enduring, I say Good Luck.

For a past blog post with websites regarding stress management, time management, etc. click here. Click here for a site geared at law students, but has final exam tips applicable to anyone. Or review this website for a good laugh and list of things NOT to do!

I highly recommend the last site, just reading it is a stress reliever in and of itself. A few examples to make you want to check it out:

Thing Not To Do #2. Get a copy of the exam, run out screaming "Andre, Andre, I've got the secret documents!!"

#10. Bring pets. (Oh shoot, I've sort of done that)

#16. Do the entire exam in another language. If you don't know one, make one up! For math/science exams, try using Roman numerals.

#30. Go to an exam for a class you have no clue about, where you know the class is very small, and the instructor would recognize you if you belonged. Claim that you have been to every lecture. Fight for your right to take the exam.

#46. Get deliveries of candy, flowers, balloons, telegrams, etc... sent to you every few minutes throughout the exam.

  • The awesome Miss Amy left me a hilarious link to a master card commercial spoof that made her laugh and was a stress reliever last year during her exams... However, I have a sneaking suspicion that I have readers that are either on the young or conservative side which this spoof may offend. If my adult readers who enjoy comedy a la Saturday Night Live would like to see it, leave a message with an email or something I can forward the link to you!
