here’s the story about the 9 hour final – answer two questions of 9 within 9 hours totaling 10-12 pages.
i’ve answered one in 2 hours – clocking in at 4 pages. may refinish it later because it’s a teeny bit short, but i’ve known people who did two 4 page responses and did fine. i don’t even care about doing fine, i just want to pass the class so i never have to think of this again.
i have chosen the second question, and feel relatively good about being able to answer it.
i’m taking a cognitive break here at the starbucks (okay, i’m doing the paper at the starbucks because i don’t usually get internet connections here to distract me because of the whole t-mobile hot spot costing money – thpbllllll to that, by the way) updating the blogorino, moisturizing my hands (colorado’s really dry, and it’s hard to get a decent cup of coffee here thanks to the altitude) and playing some spider solitaire. i have until 8:45 tonight to finish this exam. with the help of the good lord and a stick (don’t ask), i will be home by 5 tonight.
so i’m listening to my “in the zone” songs because they make me energetic and i type insanely fast and accurately when listening to them. i listen to these three on repeat. they’re just SO cheesy that it makes me embarassed to tell you what they are. but i loves youse guys so here they are:
- “eye of the tiger” – survivor
- “sabotage” – beastie boys
- “come on eileen” dexy’s midnight runners
i’m taking 5 more minutes of break.
