Exam Day

I rewrote my notes for all 7 lectures last night. I took practice tests. I read. I talked to other kids in my class. I’m also nervous that everything I did will be for nothing and I will fail. I hate tests! It’s required though so I will do it. I took the extra credit assignment as well. It’s worth 2.5 points added to my grade and I will do every single one of those I can find to help!

I will read my notes again this morning and take another practice exam before I take the test. Y’all pray with me that I get an A or a B! Hopefully I will find out after I take the test. I’ll let you know later or tomorrow!

My son does not take care of his teeth and therefore the orthodontist would not put the metal bars across his braces yesterday. She gave him 6 weeks to start brushing his teeth and taking better care of them. He also has to have a teeth cleaning before she will see him again. So we will do both things in 6 weeks. I told him that I guess I have to stand there and watch him like I did when he was little and how sad that is. I guess I do because I was busy last night studying and didn’t remind him or watch him and I doubt he brushed.

I made my dinner last night and it was so good, I think I will make it again this morning before I leave for school. It was an egg, bacon, sausage, and cheese in a bowl.

I also made muffins for my teen yesterday. It’s a package thing that you just add milk. Chocolate chip mini muffins.

I replanted my veggies into the planter as well as carrots, broccoli, celery, and onions. Let’s see how my lettuce goes after the replanting. I’m so afraid I killed the tiny plants!

No exercise to speak of yesterday. Tuesday I of course hit my 10,000 steps because, you know, school. I probably will again today too. I opened my window this morning and it felt SO nice! Like really fall temperatures this early morning! I can’t wait until it sticks around. The temperature right now is 74 and our high will be 85. This weekend it will be back up to 90. Yuck. There supposed to be a tropical depression coming tomorrow. I guess we shall see. I don’t want to cancel on my client but if I have to, so be it! Plus I want to go out with my friend that’s visiting dammit! I want to go eat and hopefully take her to my favorite bar and see if the guy that used to be there every night is there still. And have a beer after all this stress over the exam!

I guess I better get up and moving. Gotta take the kid to school, study more, then go to school for my exam and math class. Y’all have a great day!

  1. I just want to commend you on how you prepare for your classes, Julie! I am a professor (of Communication Studies) and it is rare that I see a student so dedicated to preparing for a test/assignment. Way to go, girl 🙂

      1. I’m sorry to hear this. Have you figured out what you struggled with this most? Also, most colleges offer tutoring at the Learning Center. Sending hugs…sounds like you could use one this morning 🙂

      2. Ugh…I remember going thru that as a student. Will this help you better prepare for the next one, or, are all the tests different? You might try visiting your professor during office hours to gain further insight.

  2. Maybe if you get your son a battery operated toothbrush and let him pick it, he will brush more. They also make children’s ones with timers. Make it fun, again.
    I can relate to tests. I had test anxiety in school and passed most classes by doing extra credit.

  3. You put so much effort in studying but be sure you leave your study session with… understanding. Does your mind wander while you study? Keep a piece of paper handy to jot down non study session thoughts. Turn your phone to mute. You will not fail if you visit with your professors during their office hours and tell them you need to figure out how you can succeed in their class. They want you to succeed. I hope this helps. I have been in your shoes and I wasn’t a single parent raising a teen. But I am now. I’ve raised three. Let your teen rise up to be the man he needs to become. He will surprise you.
