The Price Of Slacking Off
I am not a procrastinator. I don't usually leave things till the last minute. I like getting things done and out of the way as soon as possible.
That's why I have my study plan ready a month before my exams.
I don't like stress, and with the whole testing anxiety that Ive got (no signs of getting better) its a lot easier to just start in advance.
BUT, (yes theres a but) since its my last semester I figured why not slack off?
Who cares about grades anyway. I certainly don't. Not one bit, and I'm not being sarcastic.
If I get straight A's or straight D's its not going to make one bit of a difference. So I decided not to attend class unless absolutely necessary. i.e If i get a warning and/or threat about not being able to take my finals due to my excessive absences.
I already missed a bunch of quizzes, and all I keep thinking about is why haven't done this before! not caring is a bliss!
I just discovered why my parents, teachers and whoever else told me not to leave things till the last minute .
Because I never showed up to school I was extremely late finishing up my requirements. I have to have a certain number of clinical hours and cases to be able to take my practical finals.
Last week was my last chance. I left things till the very last day! So i drilled and filled till my fingers went numb.
My god it was hard work! I barely crossed the finish line.
The worst is not over yet.
I'm paying a dear price this week and eating tibin cause I have to take every single one of my practicals! All my subjects.
If it was just work then fine, I can handle that, but a Dr stands next to me and fires questions at me while I work.
So I have to hit the books and review what I think could be possible questions.
Do you know how much work that is!
How much energy it requires!
My roommate got 3 out of the way, some of my friends up to five!
I'm totally hating the extended vacation I gave myself.
I'm worn out just thinking about it!!
Wish me luck people! I need it!
