Game Plan For Finals

Lab final is done.  While I did not put much time into studying for it, I think I did okay.  My choices were study for biology lab final or take my son to dinner because I would not see him for 4 days.

I chose my son.

Chocolate donuts intact, 52 diet coke in hand, I headed off to library land.  Where upon I felt like no other, stnorting sneezing, snuffling brother was replaced by slam-my-metal-coke-bottle on the desk all afternoon.

Seriously, if you have kids, teach them manners.  It's okay to tell them they are not perfect, and that their behavior is inappropriate in public.  Really.  It's okay.  No one will think you're a bad parent because you actually disciplined your child, no one will think you're harsh or abusive if you teach the child proper manners.

It will serve the child and the rest of humanity well later on in their life.

My plan went to hell.  I tried to find a different table somewhere else.  Which explained why the guy between loud-dude and I, moved a few minutes after I sat down (I swear, I took a shower, brushed my teeth - it wasn't me!).  I think that guy'd had it too.

Did my biology note rewrite.  Thank God!  That takes forever.  Now, I just need to put it on notecards, supplement with what is a little hazy from Schaum's or from Mastering Bio, review again what I got wrong and right on last test, review note cards from first test and I should be good.

That leaves ochem.  Professor Dogood sent out a 4 page synopsis of what we have to know for the exam.  It contains each reaction, the reagents, the mechanisms required, etc.  I'll start working on that tonight, along with 1 or 2 problems from each chapter.  Each day, if I complete other problems, and rewrite the mechanisms for all reactions, I should be good to go there too.  That final is in 11 days.

Tonight, diet coke and Toblerone are keeping me company.  Hope yours is much better!

I am definitely having a better Saturday night sitting at home with tasty food, fancy chocolate, and mindless tv. Hope finals go well for you and that you get a much deserved break once they're done!
