Today I just sat in the same room for approximately 5~6 hours for one exam. I think it’s ridiculous. There’s more coming up — yay for three weeks of exams! — not.   Being a senior, these exams are the ones that factor into the final count of how many college credits I will or will not receive based on the work I’ve done for the past four years. It’s stressful, really. To be honest, I’ve broken down a few times for the past month just because I was so emotionally worn out and stressed about everything relating to either exams or graduation or college choices — and I’m sure I’m not the only one. What really ended up helping was the support of family and friends, as well as some time alone to just calm down and RELAX.   How well have you fared in times of extreme stress, whether it may be due to college choices, exams, or other general things in life if you’re not a high school senior?   – Vivian
