I Survived Test Round 1
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!
