Study Week December 10, 2009Posted by acc73 in : Uncategorized , trackback
Nothing like study week to have a few unscheduled days to catch up on a semester’s worth of learning I was clearly to lazy to do. Finals have already begun last night officially at 7pm with students already moaning and complaining about how hard the exam was. Walking to the library, I can hear the conversations of people calling their moms and dads saying, “I failed the test” or “it went ok I think the mean is going to be low anyway”. It’s moments like this which can really depress you at Cornell, because you know eventually you are probably going to be on the other side calling your mom all teary-eyed and sniffling trying to withhold the disappointment from a bad final. I know the feeling and I have made the call, but I try to look at things at a glass half full sort of way: at least Cornell prepares me to accept and learn from failure, because after your first good cry after a bad final you mentally prepare for the worst in your head and more willing to work hard to avoid that situation as much as possible. Tonight is my first exam out of five, so here’s to getting over the freshman anxiety of finals!!!!
