After working all day Tuesday and Wednesday on my medieval literature paper, I decided that I deserved a break. Carrie, Amy (a friend from my medieval literature class), and I decided to bake a pecan pie. Yes, it was quite random, but it was one of the best study breaks. Our procrastination yielded a delicious treat! Pecan pie isn’t exactly brain food, but it most certainly is delicious.
This morning was my last breakfast shift with my workers. They presented me with a collage of random pictures that they had taken throughout the semester. Waking up at 6:30 two days in a row was not ideal, but my workers definitely made it fun.
And, now, here is some inspiration from one of my high school friends, Tom, for upcoming finals.
A Prayer for Final Exams
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not flunk;
He keepeth me from lying down when I should be studying.
He leadeth me beside the water cooler for a study break.
He restoreth my faith in study guides.
He leads me to better study habits
For my grade's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of borderline grades,
I will not have a nervous breakdown For Thou art with me.
My prayers and my friends, they comfort me.
Thou givest me answers in moments of blankness;
Thou anointest my head with understanding.
My test paper runneth over with questions I recognize.
Surely passing grades and flying colors shall follow me.
All the days of my examination,
And I shall not have to dwell in this college forever,
