Midterms – NO STRESS!!!












Since it is a midterm week for  most of us I am trying to keep things light. 

The picture above reminds me of how I felt yesterday and this morning.  Isn’t it amazing how the whole world seems to fall apart when it’s time for midterms! The boss is needy, the spouse is needy, the family is needy, the phones won’t stop ringing.  SCREAM! LOUDER!  Come on LOUDER!  There you go. Doesn’t that feel better.

The brain seems to go into automatic “I’M DUMB” mode. You suddenly forget everything you learned over the last (4) weeks. You sit there and look at those notes and wonder – “Was I in that class?” 🙂  The words look like they are in pig latin and you have the deer in the headlights look.  THIS IS JUST S TEMPORARY OVERLOAD. You’re brain is messing with you and trying to be funny.  🙂  There I see the smile on your face 🙂 .

Just remember to take a few minutes for yourself here and there. It is ok to walk away from your books for a bit. THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY 🙂 . I PROMISE! 

If you cram too much, it is not conducive to retention of information. Don’t wait to the last-minute and you will do great. It will soon be a distant memory………………………………………………………far, far, away………………………………..



That dreaded time of year again – MIDTERMS~ SMILE







There you go! What better way to look at it. Glad you took a break from studying  for a SMILE 🙂 !

I needed the break too. Just think it’s almost over, it’s almost over, it’s almost over. You are halfway home…………

Take a breath, take a walk, call a friend. Take a good 30 minutes just for yourself. That is exactly what I am going to do now. Call a friend. So enjoy your break, then hit the books.

YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂









Do you remember when your children had midterm exams and you would say things like “It’s going to be ok or You’ll get through it!” Now you are the one saying MIDTERMS 😦 

Today’s post is just to make you smile. Yes, YOU ARE THE ONE SAYING MIDTERMS! Think about that just for a second and it will bring a smile to your face – COLLEGE STUDENT! 🙂

Know that I am right there with you, I have midterms too. Statistics no less.  Here’s how I look at it. It’s halfway over and it will be just a memory.

Get cracking, feed your brain, take deep breaths – YOU GOT THIS!!!!


Midterm Time – OH NO!!!!!!!






Here we are the DREADED MIDTERMS! ~~~Sweating ~~~ Long Nights~~~Stress~~~Nervousness and Insecurities ~~~

I feel you. It’s midterms for me too.  It’s time for us to see just how much we have learned so far.  It’s time to see if we slacked off or worked hard.  WAIT A MINUTE- DON’T !  Take a deep breath, go ahead – big breath in, hold it, big breath out.  There you go. Doesn’t that feel better?  Remember to do that often.

Midterms is only a GUIDELINE. Notice that word GUIDELINE.  (Midway)  It is not your grade. Just a measuring stick.  Whew – relief! 🙂

If you look at it like it’s a guideline it takes the pressure off.  Ok, let’s say that (now be honest with yourself) you did slack off and you have to own it. You have another 5 or so weeks to get it together. Midterms are a way to show  you honestly where you stand. If you haven’t slacked, this is where you get to pat yourself on the back for all the hard work you have done. 

Do your best and take this opportunity  to find your weakness and strength. Be real with yourself. If you didn’t do so well, ok, the last 5 weeks is gone. You have a clean slate. DON’T WASTE IT!

If you busted your butt and you ACE your midterms -CONGRATS! Let it REJUVINATE you!




Just a thought for today. contemplate it, and let’s discuss it!
