Mid-Term Stress

I'm in 5 honors classes, and this will be my first mid-term.  I need to know sooo much - how can teachers expect this of me?  Please, if you have any ideas on how to study, and how to relax, I'd be so grateful.

Sorry Yachtie was away for midterms. First of all, it is completely reasonable for you to feel stressed, especially in an environment like Falmouth, where everybody feels the need to exceed expectations and uphold family [dynastical] honor. You should feel very proud of yourself for the classes you are taking. You are challenging yourself and that is very wonderful! You make Yachtie proud, for one. Remember no matter what the results of a test are, you are challenging yourself in even taking it, and think of how much you are learning in that process! Nobody can get a good grade on everything. It is not the end of the world to not do as well as you would've liked to. Listen to angry or relaxed music or whatever type makes you feel better. That can be a good way to relieve stress. Also, sleep is good. Another note, it's easy to feel like tests carry a huge weight freshman year...but the best advice Yachtie can give you is to try your best and enjoy the moments the next four years will bring (testing related or otherwise).
