Wow this week is beating me up.
Coming from a leisurely three-day school week, it’s quite a shock to suddenly have four days packed to the brim with all kinds of “actual effort” activities. Is this what really having a study feels like? There was an exam on Tuesday, which I knew I could wing since I had used the required software before (during lessons). Scored a 9.9. Super salty, I have absolutely no idea what could warrant the subtraction of that one tenth of a point when I’m that close to perfect.
Yesterday was more project work, polishing it up for the day-long show-and-tell planned for tomorrow. Today was yet another exam. This one, however, was much more of a challenge. Though I prefer to call it a bother. We had been told it was going to be a multiple-choice exam. It was not. I had studied the material, but apparently it wasn’t enough.
I swear, I can’t actually study in the traditional sense. Give me a project, exercises, something practical to work on and perform with, and I’ll do totally fine. Pass me a dry list of facts and formulas, however, and I might as well have a monkey make the exam for me.
Here’s hoping tomorrow is over quickly, weekend can’t come soon enough.
