Studying or Stir Crazy?

studyingNo doubt, I long for the days when exams use to be scheduled four days in a row. No, I haven’t gone crazy. I’m about to with another day of studying. I have three exams for this last semester of school, and they are all decently spread out with three or four days between each one. I know someone reading this will be screaming at me that this is a blessing in disguise. I kindly disagree. My classes ended on the 8th, which means all of last week was exam prep for my first exam, which was yesterday evening. "Well, that’s lots of time to prepare," you’ll probably be thinking or maybe even have a break before settling down to study. The bad thing is that, if you take a break, there’s this constant feeling of “you should be studying” hanging over your head. Watching YouTube, reading, going out with friends, painting, everything makes you feel as if you should be doing something else. The holiday really hasn’t begun because there is a lurking responsibility that you still have to complete. Slowly, this feeling drives me nuts! I don’t leave the house, I get splitting headaches, and my fatigue gets higher and higher until I’m so tried. Stir crazy, that’s what I think it is, haha! Not to mention you run the risk of over studying. I hate overstudying because then you realize all that time you spent trapped in your room could have been spent doing something else. But, good grades are with it in the end, I suppose. I can’t be the only one who feels this way. The bright side is that by next Sunday I will be exam free and living the holiday life. I just hope I can starve off going stir crazy until then.  Wish me luck! Happy Sunday! xo Novellette
