Oh My...Look at the clock, its Test Time!
A good day and a good evening to everyone.
We all know the feeling... the crunch of time, the contractions of the stomach, the dryness of the mouth, the dreaming of a pencil making its way from one question to the next....ITS TEST TIME. It seems as if it creeps upon you. Where did the beginning of my semester go? -- You think. Its that time of the semester -- exams, projects, volunteer work-- all of which begin to steadily pick up, and before we know it we are simply SWAMPED. What can we do? Who can hear our plea for more time, more clarity?
Your fellow students, peer advisors, and CNR faculty can certainly relate. Believe it or not, this "crunch" is universal. Would it be too much for us to set aside 30 minutes of our time to relax, prioritize our lives, or speak with someone who cares to understand? It can make a better you, me, and CNR. Let's remind ourselves that Berkeley is NOT beyond us; we can do well if we have confidence -- believe that WE CAN do well -- we can ace that exam! What more can anyone ask of us besides our best? Put the exams and work in perspective -- we give our utmost, we learn from our actions, pick up, and keep on chugging.
Again, it's a universal fight...let us at least carry it out with an ounce (if not more) of joy. After all, you make the test, be determined NOT to let it MAKE you (who you are). CNRers, you are never alone in this regard, I'm fighting this battle with you as we speak....
Be well everyone!
