Every time, near the penultimate day of the end of finals, my focus is just gone –> vanished. My head space no longer surrounds that of the materials on finals, but on other issues out there. My heart, is pounding out of my chest, at the possibility of not finishing the entire semesters’ work in a couple of hours. My mind, is thinking about a billion things – how to fetch my parents from Newark on Tuesday, when to collect my graduation gown, cap + tickets, the latest show I’m watching. And then I look back at my notes and think: how can I finish them all? I really need to stop with the distractions and just focus.
