    Two weeks after thanksgiving and my Winter Finals Begin.

    Business Metrics (this one will probably be no sweat)
    Business Law 2 (Also not too worried about this one)
    Biometrics (an elective science, I might fail, cause I haven't been able to show too much)
    History of Law and Government (Should be a difficult one, but I've been doing well in the class thus far.)
    Business Method 101 (Easy as ice.)
    Business Philosophy (This one I'm really sweating the worst. I just hate reading Ayn Rand...)

    I just had some Embryology and Genetics formatives. I'm pretty sure I'll pass, but I don't think I'll be above the 60th centile or so in my class. Of course, they don't matter, so this is fine.

    I failed the Thermodynamics test yesterday. Strange, since I thought the material easy and got an A on the first test. Oh well....

    I'm doing pretty darn good on all my tests (Econ- Int'l Trade, Chemical Engineering (Ch E), Greek History, Physics)...except for my organic chemistry tests. Argh, that subject is surely the work of the devil.

    And weirdly, I manage to avoid pre-test stress almost all the time.

    Been there done that, and it was probably the first time in my life that I would have preferred a Canker Sore over a 2 hour speech.

    The test is covering Atlas Shrugged, and "Imperial Philosophies" which covers every major British Business Philosopher from 1820-1946. Its a 3000 page book, and I still have to read about 1400 pages... in a week. Which actually shouldn't be too hard, just retaining the information for the test will.

    And knowing my Professor, she will either make us write a 6 page essay, or give us one random question pertaining to the book. (Just to make sure you read it) and if you fail, you basically fail the semester. ugh.

    I don't see what you're all complaing about really. I scored well on a biology exam last night and I don't feel stressed at all.

    Your right, I don't anymore. My exam was nothing like any of the previous exams nor what we reviewed in class. I have no idea where the GSI's got most of their problems from.

    Oh yes, I also use to like Calculus. I got an A+ in AP Calc AB in high school last year. I'm retaking Calc I (suppose to be the equalvalent of AB) and it's hard as hell.

Might I just be a brain in a tank somewhere, tricked all my life into believing in the events of this world by some insane computer? And does my life gain or lose meaning based on my reaction to such solipsism?

    being a freshman in high school is the best. Gym class is easy with football and track which I rock at. Spanish 1 is the easiest for me. World History is easy, but a test on the Renaissance is coming up, that sucks. And finally English class. Reading the Illiad in that one. Next semester i have Algebra 2, Biology, Spanish 2, and english again. I know the language! why do i need so many years of it? I know what a verb is I'm fine. I probably have a typo somewhere here but I am not looking for it.

    Illiad is a good book, reading it now, so I don't have to read it later. I'm Doing Cyber School, or Online School, Dacdac, so I do gym in my basement, or gameroom I should say :-) :-)
