Procrastination For Finals 2 by Chris S. '11

T minus 53 hours...

I’ve got a pocket, got a pocketful of orgo
I’ve got a pain and I know that it’s all mine, oh, oh oh oh
Do all I can but I keep on getting broken
Reactions are never gonna make sense, oh, oh oh oh

Take me away, past finals week
A sweet escape, take me away
Take me away, to better grades
Take me away, warm summer days

I’ve got a pocket, got a pocketful of orgo
I’ve got a pain and I know that it’s all mine, oh, oh oh oh
Do all this crap but it’s never gonna pay off
Look there is another sunrise coming, oh, oh oh oh

I’ve got a pocket, got a pocketful of orgo
I’ve got a pain and I know that it’s all mine, oh, oh oh oh
I keep rhyming but I’m never gonna get good
I don’t even know why I’m writing this, oh, oh oh oh

Take me away, past finals week
A sweet escape, take me away
Take me away, to better grades
Take me away, warm summer days

There’s a place that I go that nobody knows
Where I tool all day and I call it home
And there’s no more Cs in the despair there is hope
And nobody fails, there’s only stunning A’s

Take me away, past finals week
A sweet escape, take me away
Take me away, to better grades
Take me away, warm summer days

Take me away, past finals week
A sweet escape, take me away
Take me away, to better grades
Take me away, warm summer days

The exam is on my side and takes me for a ride
I smile at the TA, I pray I’ll be alright
The exam is on my side and takes me for a ride
I smile at the TA, I pray I’ll be alright

    So if MIT has its finals in May… when does the school year end?

  8. JL says:

    haha, and this is only 5.12 right?

  9. NathanArce says:

    Well… good luck on your final! The plus is that you shouldn’t have any more required chem after this, right? ^_^

  10. NathanArce says:

    required organic* chem

    I don’t really know how many course 5 classes your major might require >.>

    The school year usually ends around the 3rd week of May. This year, the last day of class was last Thursday, the 14th. Final exams are from 18th (today) to 22nd.

    Commencement for seniors is June 5.

    @ JL –

    Yup. I’m just really bad at organic chemistry. I can’t believe I thought I was good at chem in high school. (AP Chemistry – and we had a legit teacher! – was up there as one of my favorite classes)

    Heh, I never noticed that MIT’s finals are about the same as in Australia. Nice to know that you guys are dealing with the same hell at the same time.
