What happens if, seeing as I no longer have a "testing week" as such, I'll end up not being in the state of mind to study? In all honesty, I can't actually study unless I have a huge load of assessments or exams that I have to hand in urgently. And by urgently, it's the "going to be due in less than a week" urgently. But you know, maybe I won't study as hard anymore if I no longer have any urgently pending exams or assessments.
And if you wanted to deny that, I personally can think up so many examples of when that has happened:
1. I got given more than a month to complete a History Research Essay on Queen Elizabeth the First. And when did I start note-taking and writing? Literally 5 days before it was due.
2. I spent the whole (last) holidays not bothering about my Chemistry Prac, and even after I got everything (including missing information and whatnot) sorted, I still have not started, and have no definite plan as to when to start it.
3. The reason why I decided to tried (unsuccessfully) to finish my Japanese oral presentation in one night was because I have at least more than 4 other assessments due at around the same time, which are also then only a few days away from my exams.
4. Heck, during last testing week, I didn't even properly study for anything until less than 5 days before my exam. I was even studying for the subjects which I had an exam for on the day during testing week!
5. And really, although I have managed to write up my notes and memorise them all word for word in a weekend's time, after the exam, I completely forget it all- and all that stuff which I studied over the weekend isn't even going to compare to the scope of all my topics for all my subjects which I'll be tested on in my finals!
Like I mean, in my finals lasting 3 weeks, I'll have to memorise 2 years worth of stuff for every single one of my 6 subjects. And no, it's not just "1 + 1 = 2" easy peasy work. Do you understand how many pages of notes that's going to be?!?! For some of my subjects last semester, my notes ended up being more than 100 pages-- so is that to say that when my finals come around, I'll need to memorise 400 pages for each subject?! THAT'S BASICALLY A GRAND TOTAL OF ME MEMORISING MORE THAN 1200 PAGES!?
Okay. I'll need to cool down, or else I'm not going to be finishing my Japanese by today, which demands my ever urgent attention.
Apologies for the freak-out, and yes I could be mean and say that "It's my blog, so get over it, I can do whatever I want with it", but really, if you even managed to read until here, I congratulate you- you are either a person of great patience to read my panic rant, or are just so busy deeply procrastinating by reading this, like I am by writing this.
