I ran into my chemistry lecturer as I was leaving the biology exam.  He had just finished marking the last of Wednesday’s exam papers. 

 

Here’s a snippet from our conversation…

“Michael, do you know what crash and burn means?”

“No.”

“That’s what I figured.”

“How’d I go?”

“The results will be published in a few weeks.”

“Aw, common.”

“OK, let’s put it this way.  You were the second person to leave the exam venue.  The person who left the before you left because they didn’t have anything else to write.  You, very obviously, left because you ran out of questions to write about.”

“I’m expecting a high distinction.”

The person I was walking with piped in, “So am I.”

“If you cheated off him, you’ll be happy with your grade too.”

 

I set myself a goal of one high distinction per semester and I am pretty certain chemistry is the one for this semester.  In fact, it’s my only chance.  But now I’ve got to hang by my toenails for about 3 weeks waiting for the official results to come out.

 

In the mean time I’ve got nothing but fresh air, sunshine and a bicycle to worry about.

    Get on the bike. Forget the other stuff. The results will come find you. And so will those "other" results. Kill two birds with one stone!

    I stopped by to congratulate you on Australia’s big victory yesterday, but you’ve obviously been so busy that you probably didn’t see the game.  Too bad, as those last ten minutes were especially lovely!  I was lucky enough to get to see Australia’s first-ever World Cup goal. 
     
    My head is spinning after reading through your schedule–I envy all the energy that you must have to manage it, plus riding, family, and this blog.  (And giving blood).  Well done!  Best of luck on those essays.

    I hope that you start feeling better soon. I’m under the weather as well. Good luck with the results!

    I’m suddently dissapointed that we didn’t decide on punishment for failure to comply with RevolutionII. Crap. So you wanna grow your hair out for fun?

    P.S. I think that America should give up on soccer. It’s a funny game anyway. ‘Oh, I know, lets play basketball, only we won’t use our arms and hands’.

    LOL…sounds like what I did before finals.  I cannot believe you finished a 3hr chemistry exam in under an hour.  I’m still having nightmare flashbacks when I minored in chemistry…not my smartest move I must say. 
     
    I hope you start feeling better.  At least now you can relax and recoup.  Sinus infections suck…I know.  I usually get them 2 – 3 times a year.

  6. Courtney says:

    Good luck!  I’m working on my final papers as well.
     
    Papers suck ass.  (As I’m sure you know.)
