But it's hard. Oh-so-hard!
So, I just finished my Botany exam that I've been preparing for all week....
I skipped knitting.
I took "for fun" reading breaks and felt guilty, and then got back to the nose-in-your-notes grind again.
I ignored other assigned readings in my other classes to listen to the Botany lectures on cassette tape.
I studied until the apsolute last minute before the exam.
Basically, I studied my ass off....
I mean, I even studied through a TORNADO in my city, with a room full of people crammed in the basement and alarms going off.
So, what exactly was on this exam?
Hmm... an abundance of short answer questions, screw-you-over multiple choice that has multiple answers, short essay questions, plenty of cell structure charts that made you want to slit your wrists with the metal blades piled in bowls nearby. What a tease.
But who whould have thought a whole week's worth of studying reaps nothing. Nada. Zilch. Null. Zip??
Q: How do you clone a unicellular alga (that has no DNA, or any organelles)?
Q: give me an example of cells in 1.) primary tissue with primary walls, secondary tissue with extensive secondary walls, and 3.) primary tissue with extensive secondary walls.
Q: Give the approximate size of these: membrane thickness, chloroplats, nucleus, etc. (choices: 1, 10, 15 angstroms, 1000 nanometers, 10 centimeters or 1 kilometers [obvsiouly a foux-choice], micronmeters, etc.
WHAT THE HECK?!?!?!
KNITTING UPDATE: I just started a new design of mine today that will knock your socks off! lol, I hope! My lips are sealed for now (who doesn't like supsense now and then?), but I will have pictures of the WIP in the next post...so stay tuned!
Thanks for all of the good-luck wishes on the exam, gals! I'm sure I did better than what I would have if I didn't study so much.
