Having course overloaded this semester, I found myself more stressed out than usual. My projects that have been worked on throughout the last few weeks were finished just in time and the 4 exams and final presentation were something to be feared. on the first day of finals, I had my two hardest courses Constitutional Law II and Applied Logic. this was by far the most stressful day. The week leading up to the finals involved many long nights of finishing outlines for Law, editing and verifying the information on them, and studying for the various topics for Applied Logic and Business Law. I learned a great lesson that week. the lesson is that the best think to do sometime is to go to sleep and get a good nights rest. Redbull, 5hr-energy and coffee are great ways to make the most of your day but they do not provide sustainable energy for active reading and information retention. following the second day of finals with Business law and the third for German Language, I was so exhausted that I took a nap immediately afterwards in an effort to recover.
Now that the finals are finished and only one project remains, I can begin to relax a bit and focus in my summer full of work. What long semester!
