  • 'Twas the night before finals

    I got this from some joke website, I thought everybody here who is taking finals will enjoy this...mine start tomorrow , fun....
    'Twas the night before finals,
    And all through the college,
    The students were praying
    For last-minute knowledge.

    ]Most were quite sleepy,
    But none touched their beds,
    While visions of essays
    Danced in their heads.

    Out in the taverns,
    A few were still drinking,
    And hoping that liquor
    Would loosen their thinking

    In my own room,
    I had been pacing,
    And dreading exams
    I soon would be facing.

    My roommate was speechless,
    His nose in his book,
    And my comments to him
    Drew unfriendly looks.

    I drained all the coffee,
    And brewed a new pot,
    No longer caring
    That my nerves were shot.

    I stared at my notes,
    But my thoughts were all muddy;
    My eyes went a blur,
    And I just couldn't study.

    "Some pizza might help,"
    I said with a shiver,
    But each place I called
    Refused to deliver.

    I'd nearly concluded
    That life was too cruel,
    With futures depending
    On grades earned in school.

    When all of a sudden
    Our door opened wide
    And Patron Saint "Put-It-Off"
    Ambled inside.

    His spirit was careless,
    His manner was mellow,
    But summoning effort
    He started to bellow:

    "What kind of student
    Would make such a fuss
    To toss back at teachers
    What they toss at us?

    On Cliff Notes! On Crib Notes!
    On Last Year's Exams!
    On Wingit and Slingit,
    And Last-Minute Crams!"

    His message delivered,
    He vanished from sight,
    But we heard him laughing
    Outside in the night:

    "Your teachers have pegged you,
    So just do our best...
    Happy Finals to All,
    And to All, a good test."

      Finals are a good thing. They mean you're almost done with school for weeks.

        It's funny, I was done last Monday (only had 1 final) and all my friends are still in school.

        We get 6 weeks for break!

          Being in grad school I didn't have finals, but my last assignment was due yesterday.

          That's turned in so graduation is Saturday after three long years.

            CONGRATULATIONS!!! What field are you wishing to enter?
            Whatever is necessary, is never unwise.

              heh, I've been done for finals for over a week, but that thing does make a good point. I don't really see why people stress so much over finals. If you've done decently and kept up with the class and learned the material, the final shouldn't be a problem, you just need to do a bit of review to make sure you didn't forget and understand everything. If you haven't kept up or learned the material, studying all night before the exam isn't going to help you much, in fact you'll probably do worse because you'll be falling asleep.
