EXAM 1 (OCTOBER)
EXAM 2 (NOVEMBER)
Monday: Tough day, but in the end a good one. Went to a couple of classes and studied for my Bio exam a bit, and also applied to a job…I think the interview went pretty well, though I’m iffy about the test. And in any case, they might not be able to fit the job into my class schedule. Still, the interview experience is the important thing 😀
Tuesday: Uuuugh…not a good day. Don’t think I did too well on the math quiz…at best I got a 70, at worst a 60. Damn! Lesson learned, I suppose, I really gotta pick things up. Damn…
Wednesday: Urgh! Another tough day! In the bio 200 lecture the prof gave us some questions about the Hardy Weinberg equations, and even though the questions weren’t graded, I still had trouble answering them, which bodes ill for the upcoming test. Dang…looks like this math stuff won’t be too easy for me after all. Alright, I’m definitely gonna buckle down for it.
Thursday: Bad days continue…got my ass kicked on the Hardy-Weinberg stuff for lab this morning. I thought I had it, but I messed up the equation again! I gotta figure out a way to get this stuff down…think I might head in for office hours with various TAs next week. And I did end up getting a 70 on the math quiz…well, better than a 60 at least.
Friday: All right! Things finally started to pick up! I have a quiz coming up next week in my basic compsci class, but other than that I took the big bio test and it wasn’t QUITE as hard as I thought. I think I mighta got a couple questions wrong unnecessarily due to messing up filling in the boxes (the first part of the test was computer-graded multiple choice), but other than that it wasn’t overly difficult–I expected to do poorly on the H-W and meiosis/mitosis questions, but I think I had a decent grasp of everything else. Well, we’ll see…I’ll take anything over a C- as a win.
Okay, so things I oughta do over the next weekend:
1: Study for compsci quiz – DONE
2: Finish off math hw
3: Finish off next bunches of geology hw – DONE
4: Get ready for the next bio lab on Thursday – DONE
5: Get ready for a social thing on Sunday – DONE
6: Work on tough compsci project – DONE
Saturday: Not a bad day. Studied for my compsci quiz and got my math hw halfway done, but most importantly, I got a couple of geology hws down, so thats definitely good. Tomorrow I should just keep studying for compsci. Also, I started to fill out an application for scholarships…ergh. In any case, the math hw is starting to seem like a really big drag, doable but that doesn’t bode well…I’ll give it another look after my compsci quiz.
Sunday: Managed to get through my social engagement, and did a little bit of further work related to that along with my classes. Also continued studyin for the computer quiz on Monday–as it happened, working on the tough second part of Project 4 helped quite a bit, actually! 😮
That scholarship thing definitely looked nifty, I worked on it a little bit and I’m gonna see if I can finish it up this week. Wish me luck!
Star’s workin on mah stuff, I think 😀
Nothing much this week.
Nothin. I mean, aside from my study materials for my classes. You know, I could probably put that stuff in this section, now that I think about it…I’ll do that next week.
On to next week…It should be a LITTLE easier since all I have is the compsci quiz. After that is another math test…sigh.
