So, I had three finals and a callback these past two days. One was for Religion, which consisted of two short essays and one long one. My hand was a bit sore by the end of it, but it all turned out okay! I got out of it over 30 minutes early! Hopefully that is a good thing... My second test was German. I studied really hard for it, but I still struggled. It was 5 chapters of material. There was a section for grammar, reading, listening, stuff from the book, and a map. I wish I could have studied more for it, especially since it is one of my majors! Despite my time crunch though, I was able to review all of that material, so at least it was loosely rattling around in my noggin. Those two finals were both on Thursday.
Thursday night was my callback! I had a great time! I messed up a bit on the singing, but my acting was pretty good (at least for not having prepared it). My callback was for Poppea, which is the lead in the baroque opera we are doing next fall. From what I have been told, she is a pretty sexual and manipulative person, so I played that up a lot in my callback! (Had to think back on some movies and TV shows for that one... Not personally experienced in that field...) It was great! I will hear back on Tuesday about who got what part. I can't wait! At this point, I would be glad to be in it! (But let's be real, I want to be Poppea... Too bad I'm a wee little freshman! We'll see...)
Today, I only had one final! It was for theory. I understood the concepts for this one pretty well, but the examples were pretty difficult in the test. It may also have been because I was tired... I went through it slow and checked over it first before turning it in, so hopefully it all turned out okay!
I didn't feel that confident on any of my finals (I didn't have much time to study hard chore)... but that is how I felt last time and I still got a 4.0. Hopefully, it will all turn out alright!
When is your finals week? What do you do to prepare?
