    Finals week hasn't technically started, but I've been working on a take home exam all day, due on Monday. And then the fun really begins.

    Astrodynamics on Tuesday
    Aerodynamics on Wednesday
    Structures on Thursday
    Thermodynamics on Thursday

    My worst day is Monday but then it gets significantly better

    Not sure if I like it that way or not, but regardless, once Monday night rolls around I will be feeling a whole lot better.

    Oh. My. God. That is an awful finals week. As a civil engineer who actually did their own homework, finals week was totally cake for me. I always spent 3 hrs a day at Lied or Beyer playing hoops. Drunk Wed and Thurs. Home on Friday. I probably should have shot higher.

    Stayed in to study tonight.
    Got two on Monday- 7:30 & 12:00
    Then have a final paper due Wednesday.
    Opting out of my Friday test.


    Whoever thought 7:30 tests were a good idea is a terrible person.

    Study hard for this class. It's a weed out class. If you pass it, you can pass a ton of classes in the relatively difficult majors.

    That means the professor said you can take it if you want to. He also said only 30% of people who take his final have raised their grade from it. I'm rocking a 76.53% in the class right now, which means I have a C+ by .03%. Think it's in my best interest not to take that test.

    I'll be there with you Thursday morning. I haven't been to 333 lecture for the past month so I'm a bit worried.

    Well Physics 221, I was at a low D- according to the scale in the syllabus after the final. Ended up with a C+ after the curve. So yeah, heavy curve for sure

    Tuesday - STAT 226 and ACCT 284
    Thursday - ACCT 215

    PHIL 230 took our final on Friday, get to miss one day of BUSAD 202 since I've had perfect attendance up to this point, and already have an A- locked up in BUSAD 250 and it's almost mathematically impossible for me to raise my grade to an A if I take the optional final.

    You guys jelly?
