Taking a Study Break

Hello all, I would like to apologize for the lack of posts the past couple weeks but things have been increasingly busy here at Wollongong. We had two weeks of midterms, full of time in the field and hours in the computer lab. When I wasn’t busy at Uni, I was home studying or participating…

A break from technology

Mid-terms have come and gone, and just like that, half the semester is over. Looking back over the last two years, I can’t help but notice a consistent trend. All of my electronics break right before Fall Break. I mean, sure everyone’s phone is going to stop working at some point, and everyone’s going to…

Midterm Week — aka Nightmare Week

Well it’s the end of the Nightmare Week, also known as Midterm Week here at Hanover. Tests have really all that have been on my mind, and now I’m starting to wonder if I have just completely lost my mind. A lot of people think that finals week is the roughest time for work, but…

New experiences: meeting John Dean and Laci Green

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…

The joys of October

If I could describe my October at Hanover College I would say it was fun, scary, hectic, scenic and exciting. I have taken my midterms, continued to make new friends, went through the crazy process of signing up for next term’s classes, went out dressed as an angel on more than one occasion, walked to…

Midterm stress

Ah, midterms. The best part of the year. If you’re an evil professor who likes to see college kids suffer, that is. Midterms are without a doubt the second most stressful time of the year for most college students (as far as I can tell). I say second worst because Hell Week comes at end…

Midterms week

Midterms week — the second worst week of the semester, (second worst because finals week is THE worst). Feb. 18-23 are the five days separating hundreds of very grumpy, exhausted, young adults away from a week of relaxation. Not only do we have to wake up for our 8 a.m. classes, but we are up obnoxiously…
