We need to talk because the clock is ticking, and I'm getting closer and closer to my exams. However, I feel I must confess some things to you because lately I have been feeling like this:

And maybe a little like this too:

Now, I may say a few words I don't mean (I apologize for that) but there is a reason why: I am very tired of studying in the endless hours into the night, into the morning and between breaks of work, school and my social life. To be honest, I'm so tired because of you (I am struggling to not fall asleep writing this) but at the same time, I am planning on getting yet another cup of coffee (or four) because you will still be in my life for another week or so.
I am awaiting my long deserved spring break, but even that seems like an eternity away because the week before is completely scheduled with not only you, Midterms, but also my other school priorities that don't stop either: applying for internships, completing other homework assignments and group projects...it feels endless!
I know you come twice a semester for a reason and that I shouldn't complain because you help me review what I've learned in school so far. But you are definitely not something I look forward to; you're not as terrible as Finals, but you're essentially the scary trailer before the actual scary movie is released.
The stress you give me is eating me alive--and what I mean by eating me alive is that I can't stop stress eating to the point where the food is overcoming me. I repeat--I can't stop eating. I have a spring break with memorizing over 200 Quizlet questions (per class) and finding the terms and definitions off the review sheet that was never brought up in class; now you have to take the time to teach yourself that, too.
You also have the tendency to make me miss the things I take advantage of everyday, and I'd like to remember those things as I have not had the time to properly give them my full attention that they deserve:
- Netflix and Hulu
- My books
- My weekend plans
- Clean laundry
- My bed
- My cat
There's a lot more, but you get the point, Midterms.
Despite all your flaws, I see the point of you--you're just a small struggle and perfect example of the many bumps in the road life has to offer. But studying and working my ass off just to take one exam absolutely has its draining moments. The world in that time frame is all about you.
So do me a huge favor--as essential to school as you are, please leave ASAP, so I can enjoy my spring vacation. But for now, while you're out of my life, I can finally continue going back to the important things.
