Longest Short Week

There is something about a Monday that is almost as cleansing as a new year. On Monday, there is a clean slate full of new ideas, opportunities and of course mistakes to learn from. This week will prove to me to be one of the most challenging of the year. Being only a freshman in high school, I am having a lot of firsts this year. First homecoming, first time driving on the highway, first real hair issues (lol ugh) and first midterms. Ew, even the word makes me cringe. Luckily for me, I have only three days of school this week and then a crazy long "Martin Luther King Break" Weekend. What? 



I am so excited to get this week done and complete because this long weekend will be my first real break all year. I got a head start on studying for midterms over Christmas break. And what can I say, people are totally right -- it is so much easier now that I have prepared ahead of time. Now Friday, I had the pleasure of experiencing my very first midterm of high school. To say the least, I have the teacher's approval on my side and the test was quite easy. Now this week; however, are going to be my most challenging midterms: geometry and physical science. I have been preparing very hard for both, now I just need some self-modivation to get through this. 

Over my relaxing weekend, I have many fun things planned. I cannot wait to get to them, but for my I have focused my attention to the present.

ps. I have this new promise to myself that I will take more of my own picture for my blog, as I have an extremely nice camera that needs to be put to use. What do you think?

pps. Do you have any strategies/tips that you use during big, stressful tests? Leave me a comment below. :)

  2. Definitely take breaks when studying! I always took a short break every 30 minutes and a longer break every hour or two. Reward yourself for studying with something fun or a treat on the breaks :)
