Ohhhh, finals week. This year, I have the distinct pleasure to only have two finals — but they’re almost maximally temporally separated, since I had one on Friday afternoon and the other is Thursday morning.
You would sort of think that kind of time would inspire me to study 5.60 in depth, doing zillions of practice problems and perfecting my already gorgeous formula sheet. Instead, I have been struggling with my inner calendar, which says that it’s five days until Christmas and I deserve to be taking catnaps and eating cookies. I’ve managed to get a few experiments in at the lab (I’m like the USPS — neither snow, nor sleet, nor final examination week will keep me from my appointed duties in the lab), but studying hasn’t been going so well.
Luckily, after I take this exam I won’t have any class until February 7. Whoever invented IAP gets a big kiss from me!
