• Winter Session is Just About Done

    I’m done with my Nutrition class, and even if I only get a 75 including the extra credit on the final, I’ll still get an A in the class. So that’s awesome. I’m super happy about that, and it was a great class.

    I made this for my instructor as well and she loved it.

    Poli-sci…. I wish I could be so confident but I’m most likely getting a C. I’ve got an 80.49% right now, the last week’s work still has to be done, and unless I do really well on both the final and the video assignment, there’s not even a chance of getting a B. But a C is passing so I mean if that’s what it comes down to, I’ll take it.

    Planning on knocking out a few of the assignments tonight so I have less to do last minute.

    I also went to the bookstore today and got my books for spring, which starts on Monday, my parking permit has been ordered, and my paperwork from disabled student services is ready to distribute to my instructors.

    I’m tired. I walked all over campus to get things done and while yay! It’s all done, my legs are sore from all the extra hills.

  • Fin

    Es el fin del semestre y no creo que aprenda mucho en la clase de Profesora. Ella no es buena y la clase es fácil y difícil. ¡No hay tarea pequeña en esta clase!

    El examen final es una sorpresa. El profesora habla sobre un video chat pero no sobre un examen escrito.

    Basically, the instructor dropped two bombs on us today. One is that she’d changing the whole grading weighting, and two, we have a written final that was not mentioned at all during the semester.

    I took the final this evening and it marked so many questions wrong that should not have been wrong. Anything with an accent? Wrong. Because of that, I got a D instead of what could have been a B. I emailed her and I hope she reviews then and adjusts our grades.

  • Almost Done

    This is the final week of the fall semester. I will have at least a B in my math class, and I think a B in Spanish but I honestly don’t know. Math final is Wednesday and Spanish final is a video interview on Thursday evening.

    A&P 1 I am 99% sure I failed. And honestly I’m less upset about that then I will be if he somehow passes me because I feel like there’s so much I didn’t learn that I should have.

    Part of this is I think because I had 17 units this semester, and 3 of them were in a half term class that was accelerated. I feel like I just took on too much and when the half term class was finished, I just didn’t have anymore fucks to give.

    I’m taking Intro to American Government, and Nutrition over winter. Spring I’m planning on A&P 1 again, Intermediate Algebra, and Spanish 102. Not going to bite off more than I can clearly chew again. It’ll take a bit longer but I would rather take my time to learn the material and do well.

    Tied into the no more fucks I think is a little (probably) seasonal depression. We got more snow on Saturday but by Sunday most of it was gone. The neighboring community that’s up in the foothills is still blanketed in white. I drove through Lake Elizabeth on my way into Lancaster tonight and there was very little visible ground.

    Tomorrow I need to finish the extra credit for my math class that’s due before the final, and I want to go into town and look for new jeans because my last pair is falling apart. I also have donations to drop off both to thrift and to a food pantry. The extra credit is really just a review of the work we’ve been doing all semester and most of it I still remember how to do… Lol.

    There’s stuff around the house I need to get done too. Nothing difficult, just things like breaking down cardboard boxes and getting some papers filled out to go in the mail this week.

    I think I would rather sleep for a week but that’s not something I can do.

    In happier news, my mom and I ordered 2 heated cat beds. The reviews boasted many times over that cats who hate each other would cuddle in these beds. I didn’t believe it. But one of them arrived this evening and we set it up and an hour later, Millie, the hater if all things kitten, was in the bed, cuddled up with Tot… Lol.

    I guess those beds are magical after all.

  • Sweet Relief

    Tonight I had lecture. The last lecture before the final for my BIOSCI100 class. I didn’t want to go but I did because even after 6 hours of working over my notes for the exam, I still had questions about a few topics and I knew we’d be reviewing for the exam too.

    When we got there, he passed around a sheet to put our names and student ID numbers on. Some instructors do this on the first day of class and on days there’s an exam, but this was a normal day so it was a little weird.

    We finished the end of chapter 20. He then tells us that because we showed up, we’ve been a good class and he knows it’s been hard for a lot of us, we’re getting the exam to take home and complete at our leisure, due Thursday night.

    I reviewed most of the exam questions, realized I already had most of the answers in my notes, and headed home.

    It took me about 90 minutes to answer all but 5 multiple choice questions and 5 or 6 short answer questions, with only a few I wasn’t 100% about the answers.

    Tomorrow I’ll go thru the class notes again, find those 5 other answers, and doublecheck the rest of them. There’s no reason I can’t get an A on this exam, and maybe a B in the class.
