I don't usually do memes but I thought this one was nice:

You paid attention during 91% of high school!

85-100% You must be an autodidact, because American high schools don't get scores that high! Good show, old chap!

Do you deserve your high school diploma?

Whoo-hoo! Barely an A! What screwed me up? The damned history questions. And the art ones. I don't know what cubism is exactly! Or when Columbus' ships landed. And religion? I guessed on that one...

Okay, I went and checked it out. I got the date of Columbus' landing wrong (really, why would you need to know this outside of the chapter/final test of Global Studies). And apparently Iran isn't an Arabic country. *shrugs* Who knew? It's Islamic, right? *shrugs* I really don't know the difference or even if it's anything at all. Damn Global Studies questions... This was like what? Freshman year? Global Studies 1? Who remembers that sort of stuff.

And it's really ironic seeing as I actually had the highest score on the final for Global Studies in my class... At the time, it was an open note exam and it was really easy but it's not like I actually studied like crazy to remember this sort of stuff. Ah well, it's good enough I guess considering I even got the art question right. That and the religion one. We never did much with religion so I'm glad I was able to guess that Hinduism was one of them.

I've studied for the last...six hours! Wow. I kinda get it which is amazing. I can write equations that make sense. And I can use them in ways that gets right answers. I'm absolutely amazed at this. But chapters nine and ten on angular motion are evil. Nine was kinda okay because I was trying to work through angular velocity and acceleration but ten brought along all the crap with momentum and that is like crazy. I still don't really get conservation of momentum all that well which is why I'm working on chapter ten now until I do. And then I get to go back and do practice exams. Yay.

Right now I'm trying to decide whether or not I want to skip my Comparative Politics recitation. I usually would skip something like that just so I could study late and get a reasonable amount of sleep (not like four hours as I've been known to do in the past) before the exam. It's usually useless to go but I don't like skipping so I usually do. And then there is another thing. My professor made the comment that what we were working on is central to the whole course and is major for the final (probably) but even after going to both lectures (so tempted to skip Wednesday but ended up going for this very same reason), I still don't see the greatness of what we're studying. I'm half convinced that the reason he thinks it's so great and wonderful is because this is what he's studying and writing his papers on. Anyway, recitation usually dumbs things down and clarify points that I might need later on so I don't want to miss it. But going and not going is like a difference of three hours of sleep and that's a whole lot, you know? If I end up going, I'm going to need transfusions of coffee I suspect...

We'll see how late I study up to tonight. I'm aiming for around 3 AM so we'll see I guess... That'll give me about five, almost six hours of sleep which is pretty normal for me on a weekday anyway. (It so could be eight but...)

edit x1: Lost 37 minutes and 8 seconds due to Diana.
