Last Day of Classes

It’s hard to believe…but finals week is practically upon us! Today is the last day of classes for the semester, and in all of my classes we’re reviewing for our finals i.e. final paper in my FYS, final exam in my pre-calculus class, and if the team who won the “Top Dawg” Competition from my class win the entire class, my business final is optional! Hopefully that happens, otherwise it will the hardest final I have.

Because it’s the week before finals, the university held a university-wide “stress-less” week, offering a bunch of stress relievers all week, including yoga classes, a camel-petting activity, and an art exhibit as well! I only got to partake in the camel-petting, which the story about that is behind when we had a lock-down several weeks back BUPD’s email autocorrected “canal” to say “camel,” and then it just developed from there…

This song, as well as the entire “xx” album by The xx, is the only thing getting my through studying for finals and finals weeks. Check them out – you won’t be disappointed!

Are we done yet?

Here it is- my obligatory “complain about homework” blog! Between this week and last week, I’ve had two mid terms and 3 papers to write…and it’s incredibly hard to get focused with all of this beautiful weather outside. I actually just got back my Urban Ecology exam on Monday and I made an 89 on it, which is completely surprising considering I’m a business major and can’t stand anything science related. I can’t complain much, though- the semester is half way over, and it’s only 23 days until Thanksgiving Break! (but who’s counting, eh?)

This week I have an algebra exam and a paper about zombies for my FYS due on Friday, as well as a short paper for my Urban Ecology class due tomorrow. I’ve been trying different ways and areas to study in, and I still haven’t found a good spot to study in and it’s been over two months since I’ve been on campus! I’ll figure it out soon enough.

I’ve discovered that I’m actually capable of doing homework while listening to music, and some of my favorite bands/artists to listen to while studying are M83, Lana Del Rey, The XX, and Imagine Dragons. Not necessarily sure why, but they just help me focus. This song in particular is one of my favorites by M83. You should check them out if you don’t know them!
