Hey guys! If you’re like me, in a few days, you’re about to embrace the cruel, cold world of finals.
And that’s okay. For some it’ll be their first time, for others, practiced veterans are bracing for war against tests that may make or break grades, and decide things for the rest of our lives.
But the funny thing is, they won’t.
I want you all to remember when you go into finals, it doesn’t matter. Well, yeah, right now it kind of does because we all just want a nice grade, but I want you all to just remember in ten years, this test that you just took about chem, Spanish, math, or some book you didn’t even read, it won’t matter. This test, this letter you receive will not define you. You define you.
Yes, they may matter because these grades will help you get into that good college that yeah, may just get you a job, but you know what, if the college that takes you only looks at a set of letters, they’re not a college worth looking into.
And to help you guys just feel a bit up and pumpy, here’s some songs that I like to listen to while I work. You may or may not like them and that’s cool! I just hope it helps. 🙂
