This is a dumb thing to freak out about, I realize.
So I’m taking French this quarter with hopes of going to France next quarter. The past two quizzes I haven’t done so hot on- one I got a C on, the other I quite spectacularly failed (there were extenuating circumstances, and my prof, understood, but still…). The upshot is that I’ve got to get a B minus or better in the course so that I can get myself to Lyon.
Now, Tuesday is my midterm- counting for 1/5 of my grade- and I’m terrified. I have spent hours upon hours studying for this test. Thinking about it practically gives me cold sweats. I have never been this nervous about a test in my life, and while I realize that I’m being irrational and ridiculous, the overwhealming sense of dread is very much with me. I need to nail this one or seriously hurt my chances to get to Lyon.
I don’t want hugs. Happy French thoughts would be appreciated, though.
