[Animals-Drawn]Panda - Ded...

A learning diary...lol.

Urgh.  Next 2 exams both on Monday, one is Private Enterprise and Development which I'm totally not looking forward to because I have no idea what to study and the other is a "take home" of sorts that I'm working on for Research Methods in Development.

Now let me just disclaim that I did like the Research Methods class and I liked the prof, she was cool and I learned a lot from the course (which is more than I can say for about 75% of my other courses after year 1).  For the "final exam", however, she wants to write a "learning diary".  I don't think I've used the word "diary" since 12, but whatever.  Basically, after every class this semester we were suppose to write up what we talked about in class, what we learned, any questions we had, any thoughts we have on it, etc., etc.  At the end of the semester, we hand it in as our "final exam".  The good part is it's a hell a lot easier than cramming for 3 hours before an exam then having to scribble like a maniac for another three hours during the exam.  The bad part?  I, and probably 3/4 of the class, didn't write an entry after each class and so have to scramble now to remember what we learned each class and write up something.  13 weeks, 26 classes minus maybe 2 for the first and last class so 24.  Blargh.  I COULD have started Wednesday after my last exam and wrote 5 entries/day, but nope, I chose to procrastinate and start today *sigh*.  Now I've got 3 days which means 8 entries/day @___@  So far for today I have 6 entries done...yay?  Plus, since I have 2 exams on Monday I need to leave time Sunday to actually study for the other one.

[EDIT]: Ugh, 5 hours later and now I have 10 entries done...so that's...1.25/entry I guess.  Except I take 30 minute breaks between each entry x__X
