The Home Stretch

The test is looming in the very near future - Saturday morning, bright and early. The long, hot, miserable summer of study is almost over and I am spending the home stretch at home. I've taken a few days off work for last minute studying.

The plan is to study hard today and tomorrow, and then try to relax on Friday. So far, so good. I covered a lot of ground today and am taking practice tests tonight. It will be hard not to cross over into full on freakout mode by Friday, but I have all that herbal tea to help me. Ha ha. I'm looking forward to things getting back to normal. You know... when I can pound some drinks other than herbal tea.

Think positive thoughts! Saturday night is just around the bend and you can "pound" away then!

TheWriteGirl said...

Normal? What's that? But seriously, reward yourself well for a herculean effort.

I say stay up all night the night before the test drinking tequila.

fermicat said...

jeni - it has been a weird sort of week.

writegirl - I definitely plan to party.

wa11z - um, no.

LL said...

Been there Wa11z... usually doesn't help much.

I was going to post something incredibly mean... but I decided not to due to the importance of the event. I'll tell you what it was later. :P

Good luck on Saturday and try not to freak out too much tomorrow. Go out for a walk or something like that and definitel yignore wa11z's suggestion of tequila imbibing!

Kathleen said...

And ignore my lack of typing ability, please....

fermicat said...

LL - thanks for not being mean. Mean people suck.

Kat - thanks. Are you sure you didn't take wa11z's advice yourself? ;-)

Hopefully the weather tomorrow will be wonderful and you can hang on the deck with the cats

or take a walk

or watch some mindless TV on the deck

I already put a post-it on my PC to send out extra strong good vibes for you on Saturday

Fer-mi! Fer-mi!

I wish I could be at the finish line holding out an ice cold beer for you!

fermicat said...

dianne - I probably won't be able to stop myself from doing some last minute review. But I am thinking that some mindless TV would be a good thing to try also.

magnetbabe - me, too! PDM and I are going to a cookout Saturday afternoon. I'm sure there will be a beer or two there.
