Student: Is today a work day?
Me: Yes. You can work on the online assignment. I will need 10 minutes to talk about the quiz.
Student: I love work days.
Student: There's no pressure. You can just work on stuff until you get it. There's no stress to keep up.
Me: I understand when there's stress on test days. Is there stress on days when we learn new things?
Student: Yes. I'm worried I will fall behind.
Me: Do you fall behind?
Student: No, but I'm worried I will.
