Merry Midterm Christmas

For all of you teens celebrating the Christmas break from school, kudos to you.  So today I’ll ruin the holiday cheer by reminding everyone of the elephant in the room-MIDTERMS. Yes, the one thing (studying) that we hate now is ironically the same thing we’ll be glad we did twenty years from now. Teenagers, like you and I (and the parents who are young at heart),  realize at one point or another that studying is irrevocable. And enjoying school isn’t THAT bad.

Speaking of the holidays, what magnificent things did you receive for Christmas? Did you get everything on your Christmas list? Feel free to comment below. Oddly enough, I felt guilt-ridden as the presents started accumulating to an unreasonable amount. If someone gives me a present, I want to be able to reason out why he/she gave me the present. Was I doing well in school lately and the person wanted to congratulate me on my drive? Have I been uber considerate lately? Whatever the reason may be, I’ll feel 100X better accepting the present. Perhaps I feel guilty accepting presents because I have a unabated fear of becoming a “selfish little brat”. I hear this phrase too many times for it to hurt, but when my mom snaps that I don’t care for anyone but myself I still feel a pang of hurt. Being a teenager is confusing, but add that to six siblings and you’ll find me yanking my hair.

As a holiday gift for the studious students, I’ll attach my vocab list on Quizlet for midterm studying.

P.s. the vocab will be on your SAT test. Good Luck!
