School is Hard

So much for regular posts. 

There was an article I read not too long ago about how telling people about your goals can actually sap you of the will to complete them by prematurely giving your brain the feeling of accomplishment. Perhaps I shouldn’t have posted about trying to post every day in 2012. 

School has been rough lately. It has sapped my energy so completely. On Tuesday I had two exams, 7 hours apart. Neither of them felt good, but I wont really know how I did until I get them back. My physics teacher today said that it was overall much poorer than she expected (which seems to be how every teacher I have ever had in physics feels about every test… you would think they would be used to it by now). The two questions she went over in class though I did better on than I thought. It’s my calc exam I’m actually worried about. I thought I had it in the bag. I was able to do all of the homework, and vectors just aren’t hard for me, but all of the questions were curve balls and more complex than what we had studied in class and in homework. Since I’ve had him before I also know that he doesn’t give too much partial credit. He does give some… 

The internet in the lounge here at school is finally picking up. When I first got here it was so slow it took almost ten minutes to load a single page. 

Chemistry is going much better. Once again it is my easy class, even with the new information that was not covered in chem 22. It is all pretty straight forward compared to physics. I honestly can’t understand most of the difficulties other’s have with it. The math is relatively simple, and all of the concepts are straight forward. 

I find it interesting that my physics classes have always been taught as if the concepts and math should be easy, and my chem classes have been taught as if they are the hardest thing on the planet, but I have found the opposite to be true. What’s up with that?
