@ Heather – I’m going to be working at the same company that I’ve worked at for the last… 3 summers (… wow, has it really been that long?) I’d mention the company name, but it’s not like a nation-wide company or anything so… However, I will be doing data entry. Lots of it. Like I don’t already spend enough time on the computer, right? However, perks to knowing that I’ll be working mostly in an office setting this year means that I have an excuse to get a few pairs of dress pants and a few blouses (… I’ll budget)… (… Do I need an excuse for clothes shopping?)
Quick poll: Do you pronounce ‘data’ as ‘day-ta’ or ‘dah-ta’? My inquiring mind wants to know!
Anyways… I had my psychology final today. I woke up at a little bit after 5am, left at 6am, got to school by 7:30am. My exam was supposed to start at 8:30am, but they signed us in. Individually. Checking ids and faces and all that. The exam didn’t officially start until 9:10am. Then we got to write until 10am only (50 questions, 50 minutes). Then we had to line up and hand in our exams, getting checked off again before we were allowed to leave. My psychology prof (for second term) is paranoid, as you can tell, of cheaters. Anyone caught turning over the exam early (… there was a COVER PAGE where we had to read over, fill out the appropriate information and sign!) got their paper taken away. Anyone saying anything after the 50 minutes were up (even to ask one of the TAs something!) got their paper taken away. Only one student got their exam snatched away – after that everyone was way too paranoid to do anything much beyond filling in the bubbles and breathing.
My chemistry exam is tomorrow, so I’m just taking a break from that before getting back to studying. I’m doing some more practice problems and a practice final today, then seeing where I need (more!) work in. Oh boy. Shall see how that exam goes!
