Day 267: Exams galore!

I need to be doing Organic problems so this will be a quick update.

I had my Physics exam on Monday -- it went fine. It definitely could have gone better. I realized after the exam (while doing lab problems) that I totally messed up the last problem. I knew I had to combine the resistors, but I couldn't figure out how that related to the problem.

(An example of series resistors;
not my exam problem)

It wasn't until I did the lab homework did I realized what the heck I did wrong. I hope (like crazy) that he'll give me a good amount of partial credit for at least getting all the concepts and math (not the numbers, the math) right.

My Physiology lab quiz on Tuesday went fine. I still suck at Organic lab. It's just a lot of freaking stuff.

My Physiology lab quiz today was not what I expected. I may not have aced it, which is annoying. However, at least I grasp all the material, which is good. Anyway, cross your fingers for a 10.2 score.

Organic exam on Friday.

An alcohol dehydration reaction

I'm not feeling comfortable with all these stupid alcohols and ethers and substitutions and eliminations and stupid solvents but it's nothing a little (lot?) practice won't cure.

Oh, and this past Sunday? I ran six miles. Yes, six. It was pretty amazing. I don't expect to beat that but I think I deserve a little bragging. I mean six miles. That's a lot of freaking mileage!

Lastly, Chris Brown and Rihanna. Seriously? Chris Brown? And Rihanna? Dang.

Hi Jess,

Lab work in this case may help you a lot in understanding what you learn at book and is VERY important. Do not overlook even the tiny process. DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS!!!

Do you have any scope to capture the current and voltage of your lab circuits?

6 miles = insane. INSANE!

Also, re: Brown/Rihanna, I think I'm gonna write my next essay on them.

Finally, I've realised that while I read your blog all the time, combing it for updates on your life (obviously), I never actually post any comments. So I'm going to try to do that more. The end.
