The Night Before Your First Final: Expectation Vs. Reality

Twas the night before your first final, and all throughout your over-stressed mind….

1. Expectation: You’ve been reading and studying dutifully for the past 2 weeks. This exam can suck it.

2. Reality: Exam? What exam?

Shit. That was this Wednesday?

3. Expectation: At this point, you’ve got studying down to a science.

4. Reality: Turns out, studying just isn’t that much fun.

6. Reality: You didn’t remember a playlist so you’re stuck with top 40 or talk radio.

7. Expectation: You make sure you get your 8+ hours of sleep before the big day.

8. Reality: The only way you’re going to make a reasonable attempt at this is with all-nighters (plural.)

10. Reality: You didn’t really work all that hard. In fact, you didn’t really study at all.

11. Expectation: You know there’s a point where you can’t fit any more information into your brain.
