I sat on a chair eating dinner, looking around and picking at my food, thinking about my poor dog and wondering if he would ever come back.
Half a week later, my dog came back looking the same as always and jumping happily and barking. His little under-bite looked up at me, and I wondered how I ever could be worried about a dog that was so light-hearted that he would never get hurt.
During this time, I was also balancing studying for final exams. Between finals and my hurt dog I was pretty stressed.
After a little while I sat down and thought and this is what I learned. What I learned is that I cannot over-stress. If I over-stress I mess something up or forget about everything important. But, if I under-stress it could result in careless answers. So I learned that I have to balance my stress, not too much, but not too little. This will help me strive to do well.
This is a lesson that has helped me throughout my exam study time and will help me later on.
