count the days by ErinBird count the days by ErinBird
"Don't count the days , make the days count ."

My final exams are coming up .. and I have 14 exams this May/June omg these next few months are gonna kill me . Some teacher came in and showed us a cheesy slideshow to get us more motivated towards revising and stuff , and on the board , this quote came up . I really like it and it did actually seem to make a lot of sense . Counting the days that go by never really get you anywhere , but when you make the most out of the days .. that's when you actually get somewhere .

those calenders in the background took a while to cut out , but the background looks pretty cool I guess .

In other news , i'm extremely tired as I went to Alton Towers yesterday (A big theme park in England) and i'm still half asleep , but I really did enjoy the day and altogether I went on 17 rides - woooo ! Also , RIP to Richard Griffiths (the actor who played Uncle Vernon in the HP series) who died recently . He was such a great actor brb whilst I cry as I watch HP and eat ice cream

I do this way too often at work...guess when every day is so similar counting down to the things you're saving for is all too easy...but its good to vary up what to do after working as it puts some difference in the days.

oh my god 28? that's insane! I managed to do about 7/8 earlier on in the year before the summer ones which greatly helped, but omg i'd actually cry with 28. This year I have 11 exams as I'm taking 6 subjects (gah A-Levels suck). I've been revising for over a month now and it's so draining. Anyway, good luck for your exams!

I really like this quote, it helped me a lot with writing my bachelor thesis :). And I'm quite sure the quote will have its use over and over again in preventing me from loosing my head, so thanks for posting:) By the way: The mess of calendars visualizes the mess in the head caused by panic really good, I like your concept :).  If you do other versions of this, you could write some fearsome or stress triggering words for example 'math/final exams' or 'move' into the calendars.

in addition you could write 'holiday' on a calendar and half cover it with another calender, so it can be guessed, that 'holiday' is written there. the idea behind that would be, that the holiday isn't really in sight, because someone just sees all that stress, but it's there anyway.

you're welcome, you helped me so i help you :)
