Ready? Set! GRADUATE!

Remember when I said that I had the worst week of my entire college career exactly a week ago? When my laptop crashed, I had to rewrite a paper, and I had two important exams on Friday? So I did decent on my research paper, and I for sure was confident that it was better…

Welcoming Winter Break

It just became winter break here at Hanover, and I cannot lie and say it wasn’t needed, because it was. Always around week seven-eight, the stress and workload becomes very high. I know that this past week, I had three tests, a paper and more than 100 pages of reading to do for my classes….

Here at Hanover College, I was rewarded with a (practically) month long vacation away from tests, homework assignments and classes. Not only did I not have any academic obligations, I was able to spend the entire month with…

The relief of seeing Winter Break on my calendar

As I looked at my calendar, I thought to myself, “Yay! One week till Winter Break!” Winter break is an entire week off from classes.  I’m excited about it because of the stressful weeks I have been having. Between classes, athletics and a social life, college gets a little overwhelming sometimes (as we all know)….

Poetic Stress

It’s once again that time of year: midterms. Where there are papers due, books to read, textbooks to study and tests to take. This midterm is easily the most stressful by far for me. I have a paper due Monday, a paper due Tuesday, a paper due Thursday, an oral exam for Spanish due Friday…

Who has comps in a week?

Doomsday is slowly approaching, everyone. I am literally one week away from my comprehensive exam over EVERY CLASS I have taken for my major. That’s 10 awesome courses where I worked my butt off, pulled countless all-nighters and read thousands, no, TENS OF THOUSANDS of pages.  And now, I have to take a test that…
