This week hasn't been good. Didn't do well on the Chem test on Monday, and it's even more disappointing because this unit was the one I'd studied the most for. The saddest part is, I always try to rationalize with myself, before seeing the grades in person, that there's no way I did so badly, that the teacher must've made an error inputting grades. Ah, denial.
There was a Bio FRQ on Tuesday, then a fifty point MC portion on Friday. Scores for the multiple choice and in, and, surprise, I didn't do well. Partly because I read the chapters the Thursday before the MC (they were supposed to be spread out over a month). I also just don't think I understand the whole biotech and plasmids thing we're learning right now.
Calc test on solids of rotation was also Tuesday. I'm so so crushed by the score I got on the test because I studied hard. After the test, I thought I did fairly well--I understood the questions, could solve every one, with the exception of the last. I'm so lost as to what I can do to improve.
But, some positives: submitted application to YYGS; restarted online lit magazine editing; figured out optimal studying method for AP world and the time it takes
- debate tournament at Stanford! It'll take up all of Saturday and most of Sunday
- for the remainder of Sunday, I'm going to try to figure out series and sequences (for calc), and buffers and titrations (for chem).
- Monday is off for Lincoln's birthday. Planning to finish any homework that I don't finish in-between debate rounds, and also get a head start on AP Bio and AP World readings.
- I need to get gifts for the teachers that wrote me rec letters, but I don't have any ideas.
I wish there were more hours in a day. And that I didn't have to sleep.
