I hope y’all had a good week. I won’t say a fun week, because that’s an unrealistic expectation to have for the first midterm week of the semester. I hope exams went well for everyone. If not, don’t worry! It is only the first set of exams. There will be more opportunities to really bring your grade up.
I had three exams this week: Human Anatomy Lecture, Human Anatomy Lab, and Organic Chemistry II. The first one was relatively easy. It helps that I had already taken (and dropped) this class a year ago. I spent the whole weekend writing all over whiteboards in a random classroom in SSCB with two of my closest friends. It was very reminiscent of freshman year, when we all met and decided to get together on campus to study. We tried reserving a room in the library, working at a table in the atrium and even at the Patio Café. Nowhere really seemed to work, especially because we get very easily distracted. One day, we decided to try studying in a random classroom so that we could use the projector as well as the whiteboard. This changed everything! Suddenly, we were getting As in our classes. It felt really good to finally find a studying technique that worked with us. We haven’t stopped using it since! Every time we have an exam coming up, we come to campus on a weekend and spend hours in a random classroom. Unsurprisingly, it worked this time around! All three of us got an A+ on our exam.
The other two exams were a different story, especially because we couldn’t find time to study together for Human Anatomy Lab and we aren’t together in the other class. I don’t know what my grade is going to be for these, but I don’t feel too worried.
My main focus right now is working out ideas and plans on how to make Campus Activities Board better next semester! As I have previously mentioned in past blogs, I’m going to run for president of CAB. I know I shouldn’t get my hopes up about winning, but I still want to take the time to fully research and plan how I can change CAB for the better through this position. I am aware that I might not be elected, but that’s better than winning and not having any idea what to do. Wish me luck!
A fun thing I did this weekend as a reward for myself for having survived three exams was go see the new marvel movie: “Black Panther!” I’m not a big superhero fan, but I was very excited about the fact that it was coming out. Black representation in the media is so important! I encourage everyone to go see it. It’s a great movie with a great cast. Also, this will get you even more ready to see “Avengers: Infinity War” on May 4.
It was really nice to relax and hang out with my family after a stressful week. After the movie, we went to Jack-in-the-Box at around 10 p.m. to have some breakfast! I highly recommend their #21 at any time of the day!
That’s it for me. Until next time, Hawks!
