Well, schools nearly over. I'm in the middle of finals and I'm sooo stressed out from that. I also have a few more honor society meetings and graduation practice. Is it just me, or do teachers seem to cram everything when we're about to leave? Right now I'm learning our graduation song, the theme song from "Save the Last Dance". Mom is no help to relieving any stress since she's making a very big fuss about my grades dropping (from 95 to 90 avg.) Are there others here who are feeling the stresses of school coming to a close? Not just teens, but adults too I guess. I mean helping your kids study, buying graduation clothes, rescheduling to see your child on stage, it can get very hectic at times. Who else is graduating (or graduated)? I'd like to say my congrats.

I'm not graduating, but I'm having finals... If I do well on them, I can finish grade 12 in one year! I hate graduation requirements. Who cares if I have Math 11 and a grade 11 Science? Why do I need an Applied Skill? I'm going to FAIL!

lol... I'll live, I guess. I just want to move out soon... hehe...

This is my first year in college. I started in the summer session which means classes are condensed( my government class is only four weeks long) I have my first final on July 1st, so yeah I can relate to how you are feeling. But don't let it get to you. Thats easy to say and so very hard to do. In this day tho you cant get anywhere without a good education. So to all of you graduates I say...congratulations and keep it up.

ooh college. People keep scaring me with stories of looong theses and tons of notes and books and tests. And I'm not even entering high school yet! Why do people want everyone to dread school when it can be so much fun?

Being that I am a youth minister at a church, the end of the school year is a very stressful time for me as well. I do alot of scedualing during this time as well as tying up loose ends before summer hits. Summers around the church are pretty quiet but come fall... ewww, I don't really want to think about it. Congrats to the class of '03 btw... enjoy it!
