    Kathryn's Bio:
    Hello! My name is Kathryn McCarrick. I grew up in Saint Paul as an only child. I am an Elementary Education major hoping to specialize in 4th, 5th or 6th grade. I chose CSS because of the vibrant and wholesome community that inspires me to be a better person every day. In my free time I hang out with friends, study and watch various Netflix comedy specials (Bo Burnham is an all-time favorite). On campus I am involved in inkeeping, where students can choose to stay with me in my dorm overnight, and the choral program.

Exam week

For me this week I have 3 exams. As we near the end of the semester this is not uncommon but to keep me from going crazy, I follow the standard ACT study method. This is where you study for an hour and then take a 20 minute break. During this break I do a number of things. I clean my apartment, play with kinetic sand, play with my dog, watch 1 Netflix show or just color in a coloring book. All of these are brain breaks for me where I can give myself some time to be ready and go back and study.

A different technique is taking a break by working on a different assignment. This works very well when there is a lot due in this week.

 

All in all, just take a deep breath and it will all be okay.
