Crunch Time

It’s finals week. Just so y’know.

Biology final tomorrow morning.

Final test in Biology lab tomorrow afternoon.

PreCalc final tomorrow night.

Final paper in English due Wednesday morning.

Spanish final Thursday morning.

P.S. The new WP dashboard sucks worse than the last one did when they first released that one. Just about the time it became usable and almost likable, they of course destroyed it for this horrid piece of crap.

¿Cómo está usted?

Y tu, ¿por que le aguantas? by Ferran @ Flickr

Y tu, ¿por que le aguantas? by Ferran @ Flickr

Hoy tenemos un examen en la clase española.

I think I did pretty well, and it seemed fairly easy. Mi problema grande was that half way through el examen, my mechanical lápiz came down to the very last of the lead in it. I had another in my mochila, but I didn’t want to look like I might be cheating, so I eeked it out to the end, writing very very very softly. I stretched it to the limit, and the lead finally gave out right as I wrote the final letter of the final word on el examen.

It was kind of like Chanukah. 🙂

After the exam, I was headed for the car thinking about el examen still, when I couldn’t remember if I’d written ¿Cómo se llamo? o ¿Cómo te llamas? (the former being incorrect, but a stubborn habit I seem to be unable to kick).

There was an extra credit problema, though, and it seemed easy enough, so if I messed up on the one pregunta, I should make up for it with the extra credit.

I’m behind on posting my Bio 111 notes, I know, but I’m working on precalc (preguntas mañana noches), and I have another English essay to write before next miércoles.

From whence came the art:

Progress Report

Just an overall update on how I’m doing thus far.

I got my first two labs and a quiz back in Precalc Wednesday night. All  100s.

I got my Spanish quiz from Tuesday back on Thursday morning. The instructor didn’t hang us for spelling (being our very first quiz and all), and I only missed a few points. I got the extra credit question, which made up for it, and wound up with a 100.

This morning, I got my Biology quiz back, and Doc didn’t crucify us for not labeling the screwy molecules (apparently I’m not the only one who didn’t RTFB). So, after all was said and done, I managed 11 out of 12 possible points.
