Dead Week and Taggings

It's dead week this week. For those who do not attend NCSU or any other school that has instituted a "dead week" policy, lemme esplain. Dead week is the last week of classes before the final exam schedule starts. Teachers are not supposed to assign tests, quizzes, or large projects due during this week, in order to allow students to study for their upcoming exams but they can gain approval from the Dean of their college to make exceptions.

Let me say that dead week is not feeling very dead to me right now. I had a term paper due Monday, a quiz in organic chemistry, a power point presentation that is due tomorrow (that is counting towards part of my final exam grade), and a diet analysis project due Friday. I'm thinking that all but two of my classes made exceptions to the dead week rule. Ugg... On a brighter note, though, I will be officially done with classes on Friday. All I'll have left is two exams. Huzzah!!

So, in order to take a break from studying and otherwise frantic-ness associated with school, I thought I'd respond to a tag! Thanks Susan!!

6. Went to target; got some necessities and groceries
7. Studied for the quiz I took today (which I got at 75 on. I'm ecstatic! It's organic chem, so my average on tests and quizzes has been around a 50. A 75 is fantastic!!)
