I Survived Test Round 1

Posted by on Wednesday, September 14, 2011 in Academics, College Life, Food.

Classes are hard. That is not to say that they aren’t interesting or fun, but classes here definitely require a lot of effort. With that being said, it usually happens that all of your professors have a meeting before the semester starts so that they can choose a week to test you. They all give major assignments in the forms of tests, papers and projects due within a week. This week was my week.So, I was kind of kidding about the professors getting together. It just so happens that most classes have major assignments due about once a month. Introductory science classes (the pre-med classes) especially are known for having HUGE, stressful, awful tests every three to four weeks.

On Monday, I had to turn in my biology lab report. Usually, these are not a big deal. But this week, we had to read three scientific papers in addition to writing up a report for the previous week’s experiment. Not a big deal though, just time consuming. Time is precious, especially when I had an Organic Chemistry test the next day.

Tuesday, I had my first Organic Chemistry test. It was manageable (I hope), and most importantly, it’s over. It was my first major test of the school year, or as I like to call it, my “In case you haven’t noticed, summer is officially over,” wake-up call. I really had to buckle down and study hard, while keeping my pre-test jitters under control. After the test, there was hardly time to breathe, let alone celebrate. I had my first Biology test the next day.

Mid-week Biology exam. I can’t think of a better way to spend my Wednesday…just kidding. The exam wasn’t so bad. I had just enough time to finish and there were no questions from left field.

I’d say that so far, regardless of my grades, this week has been a success. I’m still alive and I have even found some time to run and de-stress. Tonight, for dinner, I even treated myself to McDougal’s Chicken (it’s the best).

All I have left is one seven-page paper and some reading. I’m on the home-stretch. Wish me luck!
