Finals Week

Finals week is once again upon us. I find myself stressing about Chemistry, because the teacher can't teach, stressing about math because I don't remember hardly anything from the beginning of the semester. My health final is oral and in front of an entire class, where I'll turn red, stare at my paper, and speak with a soft voice. And as for English? Most of the Honors kids were scoring at about a 4 or 5 on the papers that we were writing at the beginning of the semester. All I can say is I'm glad that the semester is almost over. I was beating my head against a very hard, very solid brick wall during third period, that which Mr. McCoy would never explain anything any different than what he had originally explained, ignoring the fact that explaining something different can help a student learn better, and ignoring their questions. I will be immensely glad to have new classes next semester. Change can be depressing but I think I'll make the best out of the new classes, and besides, Casey (from whom I recieved a letter from boot camp on Sunday), will be returning to this good old, little town at the end of March (something to further look forward to).

Chemistry sucks. I dropped grade 12 chemistry, and then for some reason tried first year chemistry in university. I got a whopping 10% on the mid term. I don't think I need to tell you how it ended. But I still managed to get my Health Sciences Honours Degree.
