I would be lying if I said that these past few weeks weren't stressful. I had three exams, a talent competition, a paper, and an in-class writing assignment (which I had to write in a foreign language) to worry about. I can't even count how many sleepless nights I've spent trying to finish all my work + study + learn music + create/teach choreo + practice for my voice lessons. I remember one day I didn't even eat anything at all until I got an ulcer because I was so busy I didn't have time to eat. But it's true what they say that hard work pays off. My exam grades were much higher than I expected (A's and B's maaaan), the in-class writing assignment I thought I f*cked up (because half of it didn't make any sense lol) I ended up getting an A on, the paper I stayed up all night writing (in which I had no clue about the topic given because I suck at getting required readings done) I got a B+ on, and we won the talent competition! I actually just got that in-class writing assignment back today and I was surprised by my grade. Apparently, even if your last paragraph makes no sense at all, as long as you use the grammar correctly and have amazing content then you'll get an A haha. Also, I had another exam today which I was stressing over last night. I stressed for nothing. But then again, I don't think that exam would've been as easy as I thought if I hadn't studied my ass off last night.
Thank you lawd!
ps. it really sucks to be pulling an all-nighter to study for an exam and be disrupted by construction work RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR FUCKING WINDOW AT 8 IN THE MORNING.
