Final Exams Are Stressful!

16-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:

Monday, April 3, 1911: One day is passed of the dreaded three, and they will soon be over, for we are having our final exams now. I’m so anxious about what I will make, fraid it won’t be any too high, and sincerely hope it will not be the opposite.

Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

A few minutes ago my college-aged daughter called and asked what I was doing. I said that I getting ready to write about Grandma’s final exams.

My daughter replied, “Final exams are stressful!”

Some things never change.
