midterm

I made a 93% on my midterm!!!!

And that was with two questions where the second I hit save I realized "NO - I marked the wrong thing!!!" so in my mind I know I would have had two more right had I been taking a traditional pen/paper version and could use an eraser. Plus, there was one that both John and I agreed that we think is wrong and *we* are right, so if that's true then really truly I only missed one. Woot!! Huzzah! Yippie! And all those squeee type sounds.

Of course, there were several where I was totally guessing... so probably it's evened out that I screwed up those two...

Now to DDR and getting ready for Kristen's this afternoon.
We're baking a brownie full of candy bars. (I was inspired by Zinger...)
The house smells really good right now.

be glad, you did better guessing that i did KNOWING what i was doing

i messed up my first test of the class and got a 72% on it

i brainfarted on 2 important questions .... i was LOOKING at the right one and circled the wrong one!

and one question had "is" instead of "are"
so i assumed we pick one ... and i picked ONE (the right one).... but the answers didn't make any sense so i changed it to the completely wrong answer after second guessing myself ..... damn damn!

Sorry about the braindead moments. I've have done the same thing with the looking at one answer but circling another answer. :(

and the is/are thing is tricky, too. this test was really hard because of all the trues, falses, and nots. So there were questions like "The expression NOT A AND B OR A AND NOT C = TRUE is FALSE" with the options being TRUE and FALSE. So I kept having to think, okay, the answer to the expression is False, which means the expression is wrong so that *is* False, so I have to pick True... and I kept getting lost in the layers. Argh!

How are you liking your classes so far?!??! What do you think of them? Are you enjoying them? Whenever you want to practice, I am there for you!!! (Cuz I'm that awesome of a friend, wink wink)

i have never done that in my life
i was SHOCKED at my stupidity saturday morning, i guess 4 hours of sleep before a test is really bad thing to do

i hate those damn trick questions and i really don't see the point, it's not like i'm dealing with LAW stuff where it's all tricky and subjective, just ask me the question straight up, i'm nervous enough during a test as it is ... why do you have to mess me up at my 5th language damn it?

as for class - once i have TIME (sometime this upcoming week) i'll be making either lots of posts or one long one about class ... there's SO! much that's going on at once and i already had to study my ass off so time is a little short this time around (plus i got side tracked last week and got all caught up with terminator: sarah connor chronicles, hehe)

but i'm having a blast in class, much better than what i was going through last year around this time (pointless carpentry class where i learned almost nothing) - teachers are kickass, all the students are awesome and it's been a fun ride already

love the icon btw
must get off line and study for kinesiology test

Good luck on your kinesiology test!!
I added that icon just so that I could reply to your test post.

I hate trick questions, too. We tried to do a section on handling trick questions in my college success class. You definitely need a good night's sleep before a test!! Studies also show that getting some exercise before a test (even just jumping up and down a bit) is good because it helps wake you up/makes you more alert and it gets your blood flowing so that you have more oxygen in your brain for test taking. Oh - and chewing gum or candy is good, too! Gum is better than candy. Again, it gets oxygen to your brain. It also can work as a destresser; can't quite remember why, but it has something to do with taking some of your attention away from stress w/o taking attention away from the test content. Plus, it actually helps with memory somehow, so they even recommend chewing gum while studying in addition to while test taking!

I'm so glad you are enjoying your classes otherwise!!!! I'm extra glad the teachers are decent. Can't wait to read or hear more about them. I'd actually like to know more about it myself. I had thought about doing that program just because I wanted to know the material, not to actually get a job, but it was too expensive for personal interest and not at a time I could do it and work. :( So I'm super interested in your program and in you doing well & loving it!!!

Oh oh, what kind of candy bars? I've had the best luck so far with York Peppermint Patties or Snickers Bars, but I haven't worked my way through the whole candy aisle yet.

Oh, York Peppermint Patties sound fantastic. I used what I had on hand, which was Snickers, Milky Way, and Three Musketeers I had put in the freezer for two weeks ahead of time so that they could be lovingly bashed into small pieces. I think the brownies turned out really good! I'm assuming others liked them, too, because at the end of the party mine were all eaten.

I ate three brownies (two of mine, one of someone else's), two mini scone cookies (from Walmart, and they were good!), and a piece of custard pie. I told Kristen it was the best party even and I was never allowed in her house again.
