Week 7 - Distractions
So, you finally have a bit of a routine and you're relieved that midterms will soon be behind you. Your performance, even before grades are returned, may have boosted or deflated your confidence, depending on how you feel the exams went. As you wait to get grades back, you may realize that friendships or relationships at home are on shaky ground because of the time you recently invested in studying or new friendships and hobbies. If any of these realizations cause increased anxiety, consider reaching out to friends on campus, family, various counseling services or tutoring services on campus to help you regroup.
Tip: If you feel like midterms were a breeze, don't let up on your study plan. The extra coursework that rains down before Thanksgiving is not too far off, and right behind that will be finals.
