Ouch!

My husband hit his head at work, today. The hit was hard enough that it knocked him on his ass. We took him to the ER and he has a mild concussion. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem to be too serious. We’re currently watching for the regular dizziness, nausea, and irregular pupils and such.

Remember, kids: always wear a helmet!

I Made That Exam My Bitch

Apparently, I did learn the shit I was supposed to. Huzzah!

Today I had my final exam for my lit class, American Literature After 1865. I had been stressing over my writing portfolio for my other class and completely forgot that I had an actual, y’know, test that I had to take. Thankfully my teacher provided a short study guide. I went through that study guide yesterday evening and wrote up the things it said I needed to know. Today I went into my exam, still stressing a bit, and I feel like I kicked it’s ass. There’s only one question where I was like, “Uh… no?” The rest felt pretty good. I was really worried about the essay portion since the study guide said, “Pick one or two quotes from five authors and bring them to write an essay on a general topic.” I was super annoyed at that because could you be any vaguer?!

Thankfully the essay prompt was, “List the quotes that are most influential to you personally and explain why” and I had a moment of “AWWWW YEAH BITCH!” So there were 3-4 pages on that and the rest was discussing the major literary movements of the period. Realism, Regionalism, Naturalism, Modernism, Postmodernism- too many ‘isms!’

Y’know, I may still be a bit jittery from lack of sleep and nerves and coffee. Yeah.

Paranoid note: I said I feel like I kicked its ass. This means I actually did kick its ass, OR it kicked my ass and was sneaky AF about it. We’ll find out in a few days.
