Stressing out about my final 2 weeks! - May 11th 2012, 10:10 PM

Okay, I am a senior in high school and the stress is getting on me and I'm panicking about passing and stuff... Trying to finish my work on time is causing me to just stress out! I really need help!

I would like to know how to cope with the stress so I could finish school up or should I ask my teacher if she could give me the day off one day next week so I could finish with school work?

In my school I have all the benefits of going home early, having a whole month off, etc.

I can stay the whole week off, but that is unless I have all my worked finished in which I don't.

So what should I do? Cope with the stress and keep saying it will be over in 2 weeks or ask my teacher for a day off during the week just so I can relax?

Of course no one can make this decision for you, but make sure if you could and did take the day off that you used it to actually do stuff and not procrastinate more. I would suggest just muddling through. Especially if you're planning on college because they won't give you a "day off" for stress or too much work, unless you have some kind of accomodation that allows for it. Granted I don't know how much you're dealing with so it's up to you.

I agree with Katie. This is the perfect opportunity to learn how to deal with stressful situations where you are forced to keep trekking and get all of the work done. If you're planning on college, as Katie said, they won't just give you a day off because you can't handle the workload. If you are not going to college, the advice still applies but in a different way. At work, they won't just give you a day off so that you can catch up on work you couldn't finish. They'd fire you after a few weeks of excuses. No ifs, ands, or buts.

It's a tough world after high school, it really is. And you need to learn how to become self-sufficient. I know that schoolwork can seem extremely overwhelming at times but you really need to learn how to cope with such situations. If you go to college, for example, how are you going to handle 2 three-hour exams in one day, separated by one hour? I've done it and it's brutal. But you know what? You need to do it. And trust me, once you get through this, you'll feel a huge sigh of relief because you'll know that you did it. Don't take the easy way out. You can't rely on high school teachers who love to coddle their students forever.

First impressions last. Start behind the eight ball and you'll never get in front.
