Well, we’re now under an hour before the first final exam, which will then be followed by another final assessment, which will then lead to approximately three weeks of study for the final final exam for the semester.
This is a timeline that I can abide by, but today is going to be a tight day.
I’m writing at the moment to keep the nerves calmed. They need no t go out of control over something that I think I can do okay on, but that thinking needs to produce something tangible in this situation.
I’m actually feeling pretty calm, but that may be due to coffee not yet completely kicking in. I’m sure that in a few minutes I will be panicking once more and I’ll be flying all over the place in some sort of attempt to save face and learn all that I need to learn before it all goes to something less than stellar.
Of course, I could be wrong, could remain calm the whole time and end up doing much better than I am currently anticipating.
Exams… I still do not like exams.
Assessments for subjects should be more practical than something that does little else other than test what one can remember.
In some areas they do have practical application, but in many a written exam does not seem to be useful.
Well, that’s my whinge for the morning.
I’ll see you all later!
Love love and many hugs.
So the exam today is on environmental impact assessment.
Whilst I do not enjoy the subject, it is something that I think everyone should do as much as they can to become familiar with as understanding environmental impact assessment does actually lead to understanding how developments can receive approval to go ahead.
It also (sometimes) allows for many people to have more of a stake in a development than they thought they may have.
Oh boy. I’m really running out of things to say with this one.
Well, I guess that very shortly I should get back to study so I can make sure that I do as well as I may possibly do.
There’s still a fair bit to cover, but I think that I’ll be alright (at least to some extent) so long as I knuckle down and get it through it to the best of my ability, so long as I allow my ability to be the best that I can allow it to be, or something.
Sometimes I find myself wondering as to why I am still at university. I spend too much of my time stressed about what I’m doing and yearning to spend more time following more artistic endeavours.
At the moment, I think I have that desire, but at the same time I’m kind of looking forward to the challenge that I’ve given myself for today.
It’s a bit strange.
Well, it’s probably not that strange at all, but right now I feel as though it is strange.
The time it took to write five-hundred words: 08:02:31
This isn’t that great and it’s a bit slower than more recent stuff, but I like that it’s a bit more serious than other recent things that I’ve written.
I also like that the text makes a lot more immediate sense than other recent writings.
