[rant] Dagnabbit! So i got my finals in a week... after you hear what classes and how many finals i have to take, you'd probably think I'm whining too much for too little... Anyways, I got my finals in a week from today, and argh, its not studying for it thats killing me, but just looking foreward to taking the damned tests. For me, im relatively lucky, in that i only have three exams to take (Some people have like 5! ): Math, English, Bio. Math is okay, but what sucks is, I HAVE FORGOTTEN EVERYTHING FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR. Reason one why final exams are for losers. You've been tested throughout the year, why the hell should we need to do it again?! How do they expect us to wade through a years' worth of notes, page by page full of the same 10 numbers, and various symbols to figure out how to do ONE freakin kind of problem?! I just spent an hour frustrated on how to do one simple-looking question, but i TOTALLY forgot how to graph it! So im sitting there ripping my hair out coz i SHOULD know how to do it, but it was so long ago. (BTW, im getting 93% in math right now, so dont think im forgetful or one of those ppl who dont know how to do math well) English. Reason number two why final exams are for losers. This is stupid to do testing on, because for some stuff, its either you get it or dont. Some people absolutely cannot dig deep enough to find the 'underlying' message in some poem or short (liars!) stories, while others can see it right between the lines. And THEN they expect us to write about a peice of writing. Some of these stories/topics are just so stupid. I took this Standardized Test (LPI) required for some universities, and all the stupid essay topics were so dumb... "What was your best, and worst journey?", "What do you think of public parks and what do you do with them?" (i wrote a freakin 5 paragraph essay on what i do in PARKS! wtf... hell i still passed, im happy) etc. Im just afraid that the english final will have some stupid short story or poem like that. Hopefully not. Another thing that sucks is that you cant really STUDY for this... Biology. Oh.. My.. God.. This is the final im most freaked on. Bio is a CRAM CRAM CRAM sort of subject. The only way i'll do good is read, read, write, read, write, etc. Im determined to get a B (right now im a super high C+ almost B). Studying from the textbook is a bitch, and i've got like 12 chapters to write notes on and after that, read them. What the crap, this is stupid... And then, after school ends, four days later I go to Academic Summer School for Bio12.. Woohoo... Suffering 6 weeks of hell is better than prolonging the torture to a full school year... Thats it, im gonna kill some nazis in Medal of Honor and Castle Wolfenstein to release some agression, then back to studying tonight [/rant] Edit: hey cool, they got special rant lettering!
