    Gonna have to take the GRE a week later than I wanted to because of it (and it's probably going to deny me funding for grad school that doesn't consist of loans and more loans)
    On the bright side, it's looking like I'll actually be done with my entire application aside from that well ahead of December 1.

    I really hope playing Pokemon doesn't effect my grades, I should really study more but X & Y are so damned addictive! Does anybody have any tips to help myself to be more motivated to study?

    Limit your playtime. I've only played like 1 hour a day for the past week.

    I'm a TA for Physics and in the lecture/lab today (this is Physics I), the other undergrad TA, the graduate TA and myself were all completely unprepared for today's lab activity so while we had all the answers, we couldn't explain how to do most of the problems. It was a funny sight though, we stand/sit in the front of the class waiting to go over to students who have questions except the other undergrad and the grad TA were focused on their iphones looking up how to do the problems while I was BSing solutions for all the students.....

    I guess it's because I was the "runt" I'm a sophomore and the other undergrad TA is a senior and the grad is a Ph.D student.

    just when i finally mastered enthalpy, I was given gas law problems for recitation. it's pretty embarrassing when you can't do the problems labeled "easy".

    if you fail, your only options are to risk bad grades once you graduate, or taking time off until you slowly drift away from higher education and spend the rest of your life doing menial labor for low wages. the 3ds will be there during breaks... that's my advice anyway

    The first part of one of my last non-exam tests today was a scantron. I was sooo tempted to just go:



    ...I only stopped myself because I knew that:

    A.) I would seriously regret it.

    B.) My mother would try to murder me in my sleep.

    Finally, after the most busy and worst two weeks I have had in a very long time, all I have to do is an exam and I will be on Thanksgiving Break.

    I did in high school once, as a joke. My teacher thought it was hilarious and still passed me with a C on the test.

    Even funnier was when I had to do an essay on The Good Earth in junior year of high school and had use a fortune cookie's fortune as my "topic". I decided to be a smart-aleck and print my essay in font small enough to fit inside a fortune cookie. Then I did just that, and handed it in. My teacher didn't know whether to laugh or try to throttle me.

    just submitted my application to Ohio State's John Glenn School of Public Affairs for the MPA in Public Policy and Management program! (submitted it this early so I'd still have a shot at GA/fellowship consideration)

    by this time in 3 years I'll [probably] be more qualified to discuss policy on misc than everyone else combined

    So, I woke up on this school-less Friday morning to the sound of a car crash. Lovely. I couldn't make anything out from up here on the 5th floor, but by the sounds of all the arguing, looks like it wasn't a fatal crash, thankfully. On an unrelated note, looks like there's supposed to be a bonfire on campus as per school tradition, since my college's football team plays against Stanford tomorrow with our 1-10 record, we're so screwed

    Good luck on getting accepted!

    but is that not already true?

    Man, I miss end-of-term pranking. At college, we don't get any of that.

    I am SO happy Thankgiving Break is here. I'll have to do a make-up assignment and put together a PowerPoint presentation over break (and maybe one last lab report), but those are much less work than the formal lab report I just turned in.

    Hard to believe in 2 weeks I'll be done with my Bachelor's. I'm not applying to grad school. I don't really know what exactly I want to do in the field of biology, and grad school + lack of direction + burnout from undergrad = Bad Idea.

    Got a conditional offer from one of my universities, and I'm going to an interview with another on Wednesday. The offer was from my first choice, so I'm pretty happy about that. All I need to do now is get the grades!

    I attended what I thought was gonna be a stupid mandatory workshop, but it really opened my eyes to how I've been working this semester, and, well, it motivated me to end this semester on a great note. The road to med school has already started, folks.

    When I was in high school, the seniors parked in the staff parking lot AND blocked the student parking lot with the leftover cars so the staff couldn't park there either.

    Oh that is classic. Never had too many car-related pranks, but I did help out with spelling "FU" with our cars in the parking lot for a senior prank. We also made forts of chairs and saran-wrap to block anybody from getting into the cafeteria. And that was only the tip of the iceberg. So much fun.

    And yes, as you can probably tell, I was the king of pranks at my school. Even got mentioned as it in the yearbook.

    To my fellow Americans, have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Enjoy this time off, because it all starts again on Monday (for most of us, I'm assuming).

    To everyone else... umm keep up the good work.

    The best part about Thanksgiving holidays is that it means when we go back to college, there's just 1 week left before final exams.

    Today my English teacher made the most amazing f*** up ever; he accidentally shut down the personal computers of everyone between grades 8-11 so the entire school(≧∇≦)
