Biology of Human Function. Check.
The semester is moving quickly to a close. Today's final was for the dreaded biology class. This wasn't technically a final; the course consisted of four units, and this was the final unit exam. Still, I was nervous, as I always am taking a test. I don't know how I did (that's the fun thing about biology, even after a semester: it. all. looks. the. same.), but I do know that my methodical, diligent approach to the semester paid off. Tonight, as I was throwing out all the notes and assignments from the semester, I was pleased to see how I kept at it, each unit's notes as complete as the previous, most of my assignments full points, most of the extra credit points earned, the lab work accomplished, the group work exemplary (and a shout-out to Laurel, Johnanna and Jeana: I'll miss my bio co-eds!). Because our prof was exhaustively prepared (and impressive; after a bit of a shaky start, I came to appreciate her thoroughness and admire her technique), every point is posted online, so I knew going into today's final that I needed an 80+% for an A in the class. An A- is pretty much guaranteed. That will not do. We'll know soon, and I will breathlessly report the results.
