It seems like I just posted on here about the relief of getting midterms over with, and now all of a sudden here comes finals! There are benefits and costs to a quarter system like we have here at Sherman. The benefit is that if you keep your sights set fairly short-term the quarters fly by and before you know it you're done, but one of the big costs is that you never get a real reprieve from the pressure of upcoming exams. Just as soon as you get through one, there is another one right around the corner to gat started on. The only real break we ever get is the breaks between quarters. I'm looking forward to the next one which will be a little over three weeks. Given the costs and the benefits, I don't think I'd have it any other way. I like the idea that I'm never more that a few weeks away from finishing another class and another quarter.
