What is happening with WordPress right now? I keep trying to write a new post,and it keeps freezing and making my cursor invisible, then I can do nothing on the page. No other tab is acting up, it’s just this site. I reloaded the page and it did the same thing.
Anyway, I took my big exam this morning. I studied really hard for it, and felt like I knew everything we covered in class. I knew my big probably would be reading the questions carefully, answering all the parts of each questions, and not accidently writing a wrong term or direction or some easy error. The test felt very easy. I think the prof tries to make different levels of questions: Easy, intermediate, and advanced. Except, I feel like the easy and intermediate ones are hand-fed to us. So that whether you studied or not you could ascertain the answer from hints given, reading other test questions, or other tactics. And then, the advanced questions are things she wants us to extrapoloate from information given in class–read things not explicitly taught. So I go in to the test hoping to recall everything on the notes and in the readins, so I have some wiggle room on things I’ve never encountered in my life. And the advanced questions are fine, but I think she needs to make the medium questions harder, because it’s not right that someone who didn’t study can get the same grade as me (who put a lot of effort into the class). I guessed wrong on a 4 point(!) hydrocephaly (never mentioned) short answer. I said meninges were the structure, when I should have guessed ventricles. So it’s an automatic 93%. And after all my studying (and an EASY test), I’m not super-happy with that. . .
On a slightly different topic–well, still the brain we got tickets to the snowboard swap. It will be most practical buying snowboards and boots here, then using them in Salt Lake, Colorado, or Tahoe ie big, expensive, world-renowned snow-sport locations. And I’m a big believer they need to increase helmet usage here, so I guess I’m putting together a group to talk about traumatic brain injury and the importance of helmets. I’m not sure how I because the leader on it other then we’re going and I see a need and think it’s important. But I suppose since I’m suggesting we go, I ought to volunteer some time too. We’ll see how it goes–I e-mailed the people putting on the event as well as my classmates. I don’t have high-hopes for a response. But if anyone follows up, it will be a useful thing.
I started watching “Desperate Housewives” on Netflix, just while Cool is at work–we watch “Criminal Minds” but only together. You see, I like to watch something when I eat. Anyway, it’s kind of a soapy, kind of a drama/comedy. What I already don’t like is the men on the show. Total tool-bags! Carlos thinks he owns Gabby, and is a total Momma’s boy, always taking her side over his wife. The poor twins’ mom who is obviously overwhelmed, was made to give up her (more successful) career, is saddled with 99% of the household/kid responsibility, and her dope-husband does things like invite over company for a formal dinner without telling her, and with only 2 days notice. Bri’s husband doesn’t appreciate anything she does for him, is always putting her down and griping, and is cheating. I’m not impressed with how the writers have the women treated on this show. Like they just have to put up with all this crap, and it’s normal. I say these capable, beautiful, smart women could do a lot better then these jerks! Plus, I’m never a big fan of obvious eating disorders for a whole cast–when they are role models for women.
I got a flu shot last Thursday. Which I never have before, and have always railed against. I NEVER get the flu. If I get sick at all (which I haven’t since 2008) I get a head-cold. Anyway, because I’m in closed-air, close quarters with so many people, and tons of kids–cleaning, at ground zero–I decided to this year. My school did them for free last Thursday. The site was a little tender that night, but I used it–to sort of work it through. By that night, it felt just fine. And I thought I did too. Friday I was tired. Saturday I felt crummy. Like muscle soreness, but deep, deep inside. And it was exhausting to even walk to the kitchen. I couldn’t have stood on my feet all afternoon/night, let alone complete vigorous locker room cleaning–I had to call in sick to work! Which also rarely happens. Maybe I had a vaccine reaction? Because I’m so new, I don’t have any sick time accrued, but my boss let me “trade.” So I have to make up 8 hours sometime. Being a worrier, I want to get that done sooner, rather then later, so I’m working tonight. I already have to go for a child abuse prevention training, so I figure I might as well. Besides, there’s never a better time then after an exam and before we get new material. Those are my free-est, most stress-free times. But it does mean I will have to be at work (until midnight) 4 days in a row, which as a morning person just might kill me.
If I’m alive I’ll write after the streak is over.
