I apologize if you feel used because I am venting to you. Biology end-of-course exams are coming up and I feel emotional.

End of the year testing time has come around. It is just like holiday season except there are no gifts, vacations, or happiness. Students dream of paper floating around with bad grades etched with red marker. For a gal like me, it is not easy seeing all that wasted paper. I am not saying that tests that are being made as a way of inflicting torture upon children is a waste of such a valuable resource that is over used and disappearing, but when did it become necessary to have pages in between the sections of tests that just say “This page was intentionally left blank”. Seriously? The gas that is used to ship these tests to every school alone is headslap worthy. But, I love testing. Doesn't everybody (sarcasm)?

So when you want to take a break from all your studying, here is something you can do.
