The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The semester ends next Wednesday and I’m trying not to fall into a total panic. I have a huge paper due on Friday that I’m still uncertain what it’s about because I’ve yet to read the rubric. Not to mention two exams and a whole string of math homework. I know I’m not alone on being completely stressed out by finals, but it’s still so frustrating.

This time of the semester always has me questioning why I’m in college and if it’s the right decision for. I’m still unsure about my major and I don’t agree with how the educational system is run. I’ve always felt that school would be great if there was actually time to learn. It seems that there’s only time to study for tests and take tests. Only to be followed up with dumping out that information so we can cram for next week’s exam.

I’m so sick of it, you know? It’s like our learning and knowledge isn’t valid unless we can chose the correct answer on a test that rarely is even about what we were fed during the week.

It’s just the more I think about it, the more I think why. I thought when you got older you would get the answers to the questions you had when you were younger. If anything I feel like there’s even more questions. Or that the answer is simply ‘because’ which isn’t much of an answer at all.

I know I’m not the only one stressed out with finals, but I guess I just want to know why this is necessary and what am I doing this for? Who am I doing this for?

I guess all of those questions will have to wait because I have other math related questions that need answering. At least I have my cute study buddy helping me out. That's his 'hey, why did you stop scratching my ears?' face.
