As Finals draw to a close, or maybe loom ahead for some, I just wanted to say this:
You did your best.
For real! You did your best! In case you have some extremely high expectations, just know that it is not possible to ace every single final. There's always going to be some regrets or points missed. But it's okay! Your life is not really going to be affected by that 84% on your psychology final. Your career is not doomed because of that B final grade.
There is so much stress in our world today. Just the fact that you made it through finals week should feel like a huge accomplishment! You did your best and you made it through! Go you!
To top it all off, guess what's right around the corner?
YESSSSSS!!!!! If your semester has been anything like mine, a break is exactly the thing that is needed. (And if you feel like you don't need a break, well, then maybe you didn't actually do your best? Haha!) Our bodies can only handle so much stress, so use this break to rest up and have fun!
You're doing okay... you really are! I know school is hard and I know that you're questioning what in the world you're doing by putting yourself through all the stress. But you're doing okay. You are going to make it through and you're going to learn a lot in the process! So don't worry about all the not-quite-perfect grades and don't stress about all the work ahead. It will get done because you are going to continue to do your best. And your best will get you so very far.
