The Big Push…
Why am I so busy the day before an away trip?
It’s like the flood gates of busy-ness opened and drowned me with stuff.
As you can figure, today is the day before the Marching Hundred leaves to go to Michigan. I’m very excited about this trip, i can’t wait. I was one of the lucky folks to have their name drawn to have my own bed. This is definitely a plus. I knew rooming with the drum major would have it’s perks.
Anyway, here’s how my day has been so far. I skipped my BUS S302 class because I needed some extra time to study for my Molecular exam. So I studied for that until it was time for me to leave to go to my Genetics exam. I did really well on this one, I believe. The only thing I didn’t quite understand/remember was how to do a Chi Squared analysis of a test cross to determine if the two traits were linked or unlinked. Hopefully what I did is what I was supposed to do.
Then came the Molecular. I did ok on this one. I could have done better had I had more time to study. I would say I got most of the questions right. I was a little confused when it came to the secondary structure of protiens and how to determine, using thermal denaturization, the Cytosine and Guanine content of a newly found bacteria’s genetic code. I’ll still get a B on the exam overall though.
Now, I’m at work. Apparently I didn’t completely understand the Trainer Troubleshooter roll at the begining of the semester. Now that I do, I’ll be tearing up campus, getting things done. All it took was someone to sit down with me and explain it so I would understand. I missed all the summer staff meetings because I was working at camp, which put me behind when I got here. I would say that I have adjusted well without being told what to do.
After work… Marching Hundred… we all know how this goes… ching-bow.
Then CLIMBING!! I’m excited. Chris and I (and maybe Mike) are going to head out to Hoosier Heights today after band rehearsal. I’m psyched! I haven’t been climbing (except the random walls and poles around hundred hall) since this summer! Hopefully I will get to see Robbie at the gym since I haven’t talked to him since he left for Montana. I’m looking forward to a good time.
The Bro’s and PM’s of KKPsi are going to be coming over to my place to watch Must See TV Thursdays tonight. This should be a good time because it’s an UNOFFICIAL (meaning unsanctioned by KKPsi, we are all just part of the fraternity) start to the away trip weekend. After the gathering, some of us have been throwing around the idea of heading out to the bars. We’ll see what actually happens when that time comes though.
Then packing time, sleep and Michigan!
I don’t really know when I am going to relax today. I need to get some sleep because I have a shitload of homework to get done on the bus on the way to MI.
On a totally unrelated note, I will be making it so that the only way you can get to my blog is to click on the link in my AIM profile. This will make it so that the only people who read it, are the people I want to read it. It’s primitive, but it will work. It will be a simple redirect that you can only follow from the link in my profile.
That’s all I got for now. Here’s the end-of-the-blog rundown!
