Today is Saturday

I hate school. It's as simple as that. Next week marks the beginning of Finals Week for me, and saying I'm unprepared is the understatement of the year. I have a HUGE Biology test covering seven (yes SEVEN!) chapters, and I have not even begun to study. Why do I procrastinate? Why why why? Is it because going to the pool seems like a better idea, or because sleeping in is so much more appealing? Uggg. I regret those choices in times like these, when I'm to my maximum capacity of stress and anger. Even the thought of studying gets me anxious and sweaty, thinking about taking the stupid test that I'm totally not ready for. On top of my massive Bio test, I have to give a "small" presentation to my class on a classroom lesson. Like the real deal. And when I say "small" I mean it has to be at LEAST five minutes, with a ton of criteria that is basically absurd. And to make matters worse, I have to give two of these "small"presentations. One for math and one for language arts. I guess the reality of becoming a teacher is taking place as we speak. I also have an Anthropology test that I have to study for... I love my Anthropology teacher, but I hate the way he teaches some things. We just covered a chapter on religion. It was a pretty heavy chapter. It's totally obvious to me that my instructor is pretty jaded and callused toward religion. I'm not sure why, but he makes it totally clear by the way he teaches this chapter. He makes all Christians look really  naive and simple. I get pretty heated in conversations like this, so I had to literally bite my tongue while he was lecturing. I think my face said it all, because he would occasionally look at me and ask if anybody had any comments or questions. Oh boy did I ever have a comment or two I could give him, but I chose to keep my big mouth closed. 

Stress if overwhelming, and I'm beginning to freak out a bit over school. One more week. I can make it through one more week, right? Here's what the week looks like
Monday- 10:30 am massive Biology test
Tuesday- Recover from test/ study for Anthro/ prepare "small" presentations/ take online History test
Wednesday- Finish cramming for Anthro
            - 5:00 "small" presentations
    - 7:00 Anthropology Test

I can do it! (I hope!)

Remember, you're learning this stuff all semester. It's in your brain already. Cramming is just....frosting. You're smart, I'm sure you've paid attention, and you are going to be AN AMAZING TEACHER!!!!
