In 2 hours, I will be taking an exam. An exam in my Japanese class that I am not prepared for.

I have been studying. I studied last week. I studied this weekend. I studied last night. I studied this morning. Still, I feel unprepared. I feel old. Studying didn't used to be so much work! Or maybe I blocked out that part of college.

I usually volunteer in my son's kindergarten classroom on Tuesday mornings. I cancelled this morning so that I could blog study some more.

Anyone want to let me copy off of their paper?

Take a deep breath and do the best you can. I used to get test anxiety when I was in school five years ago and a counselor suggested I put some lavender oil on my wrist. I swear it does make you feel calmer and you smell all new-agey the rest of the day. :)

I bet you'll do great and more know of it than you may think!

Love Lynn's lavender idea.

You'll do super, Cookie! All that studying has been absorbed into the important places in your brain and will be recalled with ease when necessary.

And if I was in your class I'd have to copy off YOUR paper! :)

Poor Baby.... Sorry---I cannot help you at all especially with a language.. I took Latin in high school and 2 yrs of German in college--and don't remember a darn thing1!!!!

Good Luck---I'm proud of you for learning your hubby's language. I'm sure you will do GREAT on your exam.

I'd let you copy off of me, but trust me, you wouldn't want to. Good luck!

I hope it went well! I haven't taken an exam in so long, I can't imagine how it would go... remembering how to study? Eek. Fingers crossed for you!

I am sure you will do fine. I too am proud of you for learning, what I presume to be a very difficult language. How does your husband feel about your efforts?
