I almost wish I was more stressed. I am bored out of my mind.

I have classes Monday – Wednesday this week, then finals on the following Monday and Tuesday. I have no more assignments or presentations due. 

And the two finals I have left will be easy. I’ve gotten as low as a 92% to as high as 100% on the midterms for those classes, so I’m not worried. I’ll study the night before!

So basically I have nothing to do for a solid week. Ugh. Seriously, I have been wondering around my apartment aimlessly! Granted, last semester was absolute hell with my 21 credit course load, so I guess I should welcome this smooth sailing semester!

I’m trying to get up the “want” to do my finals – I have a paper for organizational management, a large group project that I seem to be the only person working on (GRRR), a powerpoint group project that I don’t have everyone else’s info for yet, and a final exam in international business.  So worried that the next two weeks will be hell!

I’m just trying to get through! I’ve got one more semester after this with a slightly lower workload (yay!). This semester is tough, but what’s really killing me is my lack of motivation. I’m showing typical signs of burnt-outness and senioritis. Gotta get on it!

omg this semester has been absolutely *awful* I’m counting down the days until Christmas.  Of course, next semester is going to be even worse. *sigh* it never ends.

I can relate!  I only have two days of class left, but I still have three presentations to give in that time period.  I haven’t even started preparing for the two I have to do tomorrow.  I’m so over it.  I just want to graduate!  13 days!

If it makes you feel any better in a misery-loves-company kind of way, this time sucks for your instructors as well and perhaps even more so. It takes a LONG time to grade essay exams and final papers and to organize the final gradebook and make sure there are no errors. Meanwhile, we’re getting flooded with emails from the mundane to the obnoxious asking for extensions, insider information, extra help from students who never once came to office hours, grade inflation, etc. and within minutes of giving the final, students are emailing to ask what they got.

Good luck with your finals!

This is definitely my most stressful semester as well, but I have three more for undergrad 🙁 Not only do I work, I’m the basketball manager, and those together add up to about 50 hours a week, plus field experience and classes. I close down the library every night. It’s been this way since the end of October. So excited for Christmas break! Just wish mine was longer than 7 days. Booooo.

Hope everyone aces their finals! I have three portfolios due this week and two finals next week, so just trying to breathe! lol

This was a pretty stressful semester for me, too! But it will be over in about a week or two, depending on how things go with my portfolio. I am putting off writing a paper as we speak. 🙂

Same here (one week away until FINALS). This semester has been amazing as it was my first semester working part-time on campus! Sadly, I still have until 2014 until I get to move on to the University. I am doing my entire Associates before moving on. I can’t wait though!

@RapunzelRapunzel:  Originally I was an English Major but I have switched over to Communications (haven’t decided if I want Public Relations or Technical Communication as a concentration yet).

I get the stressful stuff though. Luckily my job is on campus so it makes everything so much easier but I have two kids at home and I am planning my wedding. The wedding was put on the shelf during the semester so I could maintain my GPA (really aiming for the presidential scholarship when I transfer) but I can’t wait for break so I can just relax and plan my wedding and spend the holidays with my family. Congrats on getting your UnderGrad done though!!

My FI is in grad school and working and I AM SO READY for this semester to be over. 20 hours of homework a week is killing me and I’m not even the one doing it. Bless him. He spent his birthday evening doing homework only coming down from his office to eat his birthday meal and give me a quick kiss and thank you before going back to it.
