Post Genetics Exam - Kaplan Advanced Starting

Genetics is pretty straight forward and the math is pretty simple.  I love it.  However, there's one aspect of it that I'm not liking.

A-

Seriously.  Didn't read a question right - skimmed it would be more appropriate - and that is the difference between an A and an A- ... I know, whoopeee doo.  Suffice to say, that when one chronically posts a picture of an old crone depicting me:


One must be prepared to smack the other peers, who look like this:


upside the head in the grade book.

It's my fault, my responsibility.  I shirked even reviewing the posted quizzes until late the night before; then just skimmed my notes.

Why?

I'm bored.  I love the class but I'm bored.  Now we're getting into biochem of genetics and I can only imagine how much worse this is going to get.  Given I can draw all the ... and yeah, just bored.

Which brings me to the MCAT prep course from Kaplan and being bored.

I can't afford to be bored with the MCAT.  I can't afford to be lazy when it comes to making sure I've crossed off every topic on the MCAT official guide, understood every concept and detail as listed by the AAMC.

And yet the thought of doing this again?

Okay, buckling down.  Chem and physics are up tomorrow night.  I have to do well.

Maybe then, in med school, I won't be bored.
