Have you ever taken a big test and just felt like you did absolutely ROTTEN on it? On Wednesday, I went and took my last test of Logic in the testing center, which is so incredibly impersonal. I took like an hour and a half on it, because I could not for the life of me figure out what to do. I studied for about an hour and a half before I went, but I have the feeling it wasn't too effective because I was also trying to help my brother study for his test in the Logic class that is the pre-req to mine. But anyway, I opened up my test and just blinked. 5 problems, all of them yucky. I went through the first one, couldn't get it, went through the second one, couldn't get it, went to the third one, couldn't get it, fourth, had no idea how to get it, and the fifth, just about pooped my pants, it was so yucky. I ended up getting at least an answer for the first one, and was pretty sure I got the second and third ones right. The fourth one I tried something and it seemed to work, and the fifth I just wrote some remotely connected junk. I felt so crummy I wanted to swear.
So when we got our tests back yesterday, I was quite prepared to get a lousy grade. I actually prepped myself to accept a 60% or so. So I got it, opened it up, and . . . 95%! Holy Cow! I really couldn't believe it, but there it was. Great feeling. In a weird sort of way. Maybe I like school after all.

Utter Boredom

I am SOOO ready for this semester to be over. In fact, I'm pretty much done with being in college. I like learning, but I hate having to do it from teachers who don't want to be there and don't really feel like teaching what the students want to learn. Granted, that's not all of them, but I know of at least a couple. And I'd like to puke on them. Grrrr.
On a happier note, all my plants are doing well. Except for those sundews, that is . . . they just don't grow quite fast enough for me. And one of my orchid buds is blasted! I'm really quite unhappy about that. And ok, so a bunch of other kind of rotten things happened today too, but I didn't really remember them until I started trying to. Boo.
