Yes. That makes absolutely no sense at all. Haha.
What’s been going on lately? People have started stressing about finals. The finals at the end of high school that pretty much decide if we’ll get into the university we want or not.
It’s March. The finals are in June.
I have to admit, I did have a few very bad days regarding them this week. Because people have started putting so much stress to them, like there’s only A WEEK left until it all starts and they won’t have enough time to study. So here’s the thing people: THE MORE you stress about it, THE MORE you’ll have to study in order to feel safe about sitting the exams. It’s not like those tests require all those fucking details we mentioned in the last four years. THEY DO NOT.
I’m not in ‘the academic elite’ of our class. And this is the time when I’m actually glad I’m not. Because I realised how much knowledge I still have and I feel proud of myself. After being sofuckingterriblystressed for a few days because of everyone whining about these fucking five exams, I realised this: each and every one of us is still able to master all the basics we have to know there. And you know how do I know this? Because guys, you’re in the fucking final year in one of the hardest schools in the country. You’re getting straight A-s (or maybe B-s or C-s it doesn’t matter). Things we’re doing in regular classes are so much harder, they demand so much more effort. And you still manage to do it!
That’s why I hope you can bare this in mind: there’s still time. There’s time to make up for everything you lost over the years or never managed to learn. Take it easy because stress won’t do you any good. The week of all the exams is going to be stressful enough. Don’t be too hard on yourself for the remaining 68 days (yes, the English exam is in 68 days).
YOU CAN DO IT and YOU WILL DO IT!
I’m happy because the summer is nearing with immense speed.
I’m happy that I run because I want to run, not because I feel obliged to.
I’m happy that I can take my best friend out for a cake not matter how many times a week and not feel bad about it at all.
I’m happy that I have two proms coming up in the next couple of weeks.
I’m happy that I get up every day with a smile on my face and with genuine excitement about what the day is going to bring.
I’m happy that I know so many amazing people.
And I’m fucking stoked to demolish all the obstacles and shove the remains in so many people’s faces!
