Funny how the cracks don't seem to show...

Just spent 4 and a half hours on my history essay prep thing. And now I get to transfer it all to note cards. *yawn* I'm tired and I have a headache, I don't want to do this anymore. I'm officially not a fan of the United States between the times of colonization and Reconstruction after the Civil War. Blech.

However, I'm about *this* much happy because I got my first taste of finals week. I adore finals week. Why? you ask, puzzled I'm sure...well. There is no school. There is no homework. You can lay around in pajamas all day. Listen to music as loud as you want in an empty house. And as I've mentioned before, I'm more productive when I'm alone. (Hence the 4 hours of straight working today, as opposed to me not doing anything the rest of the weekend).

During finals week, you get to sleep in, even if just a little, because the first possible test is at 8:20. And I can drive myself which means that I'm waking up at 7:45 thank you. That's over an hour later than normal!! And there's no homework to keep me up until 3. And I get to eat lunch at home instead of yucky school food.

And if you think about it, sure, a final is worth 20% of your semester grade, but for the most part, you can get anywhere between a 30 and 90 and have it not effect your grade in the slightest. Especially if you are at a solid place. Plus, they don't have all those hard and in-depth questions. Nope, just a little of everything from the semester...basic concept questions. And usually I get the basic concepts, it's the in-depth stuff I suck at royally.

So really...what's so bad about finals? It's my favorite week of the school year.
