View Full Version : Finals
04-25-2001, 08:09 PM
I don't know if anyone else is in the middle of finals week right now, but I am!! Anyone that wants to vent on finals post away!! Here's my deal on finals. I remember most of the stuff through out the semester so I really do next to nothing studying and I get As and Bs. I spend most of the week bored actually trying to find something to do. Last year my friend and I spent a lot of time finding plane tickets. Here's my vent. I had two finals today (Modern Political Thought and then Civil War and Reconstruction). We have 2 1/2 hour blocks and wouldn't you know it I spent the whole 2 1/2 hours on each exam for a total of five hours writing essays on anything from Locke to Marx to Nietzsche (which I'm proud to say I can write that name without double checking my spelling) to Lincoln and what it was like to be a soldier in the Civil War. 7 essays total and trying to identify quotes with philosphers (that wasn't too bad because you just had to look for a few words and then you knew what it was). After five hours of writing and then crew practice where I had to feather (rotate) with my right hand, my wrist is kaput. Anyway, you want to scream about the absurd amount of essays that you have to write (I will definitely sympathesize) or any other last minute tricks your professor pulls post away and have fun!! Monday I am finished!! Three exams left!!

Okay, I will vent!! Next week is my finals and I'm not real worried about them (yet) but I am mad because my stupid prof. in listening (yeah, a class on listening!) gave a test during dead week. We're not supposed to have tests during dead week! Then she asks us test questions like "What instrument does my son play?" Who cares!!!! That wasn't in the book! Stick to the syllabus!!!

congrats to lesliem14 for finishing her finals!!!!! I hope you are able to keep posting on the board during your semester break. Are you taking a summer term, or are you audi until August?

Thanks coily! It feels so good to be done, but I still don't get to go home until May 11th because of crew. I won't be able to post starting next Tuesday through Saturday because I'll be in Philly for our last big race. Not taking a summer term, need to get the hell away from this town! This summer I can only get online after 10pm because I usually work the 12-9 or 1-10 shift and I can't get online at home in the morning because my Dad works out of the house and it interfers with business calls. I will be around this summer, just at night! Oh, and since I can't help myself: I'm a senior!! (Can I be a Senior forever because I don't want to leave college!! Next year will rock because in a two week span my two best friends and I will be back together for the first time since sophomore year because we were all studied abroad this year at different times and I turn 21) That was a little longer then I planned on but its been an awesome day!!!!

I have final exams next week. They are so annoying!
05-03-2001, 07:45 PM
Good luck, guys! I don't have them this year (seventh grade only gets them in the winter, but next year I've got finals), but instead we get to do a project on something we've learned this year and go on a class trip to wherever we want! I'll enjoy the fun now because next year it'll be different... http://www.sitcomsonline.com/ubb/smile.gif
Love is patient and kind, it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil but with the truth. Love never gives up, and its faith, hope, and patience never fail. Meanwhile these three remain: faith, hope and love, and the greatest of these is love.

I don't have finals until June also, but you but not that lng ago we had to take this test((th grade only) to see if we can either advance to the next grade or the high school exsit exame one of those. And we are the first class to have to take it and every other class after us have to take it too. Then Just yesterday and today we too our golden staet exam for first year algebra2 and biology and they were hard. half the things on there we haven't even cover yet. the in about a week or two we have to take standford 9.This sucks so much and I think it should be a crime to give out this many tests especially on things that it takes more than 6 mounths to learn.
