Midterm Time

Bright and early Saturday morning, I took my Statistics midterm. I was pretty nervous about it since it was worth 50% of our grade and only 30 questions long. It was, however, nice to walk into a class, sit down, fill out some bubbles on a scantron sheet, and be finished. No justifying, defending, or explaining. Just filling out bubbles and knowing there is a right and a wrong answer for each. It's been a long time since I've had a test like that. Almost every class I've had in both the undergraduate and graduate level have required papers instead of tests, and although I love writing and am fairly good at it, it was nice to actually take a test.

Taking my Stats test marked the halfway point in this quarter. That leaves one 3 page paper, one 10 page paper, one 25 page paper, one 3 hour group presentation, one language proficiency exam, and one final test left this quarter. I'm not quite sure how I'm going to fit all of that as well as my internship into the next five weeks and still do well on all of it, but somehow, it always seems to work out.

It's crazy to think that after this quarter, I'm done. No more tests, papers, or classes. Just the job hunt that follows. Ugh, that sounds even worse. :)
