I have been humbled

I am not thrilled with my test scores... the muscle lab quiz came back as a 78 (I missed points for spelling)... and the psych test was an 86.7.... if I had missed one less question, I would have stayed in the A zone (my unit tests have all been A's)... but the midterm knocked me down to a B (for now).

Lots of work ahead of me, but I'll "keep on swimming, swimming, swimming."

Of Muscles and Psych tests

Normally I love Thursdays. My last day of school each week is Thursday. I look forward to my three day weekends... which I use to study, study, study. This week, I'm not so sure I'm loving Thursday.

I have my first muscle lab test in anatomy. The muscles of the upper limb, and it's "attachment" muscles to the trunk are the first 29 muscles I have had to learn (we aren't doing ALL the muscles.... The human body has more than 600 muscles).

Then I have my mid-term in Psychology. Normally I don't mind tests...I actually do pretty well in tests... but I really hate having two tests on the same day. It's hard to make time to study well for both.

Tonight I focused on the muscles. Tomorrow between classes, I'll study the psych notes. 60-75 questions on the first 6 sections we've studied. Multiple choice.

I guess I'm venting. :)
