Home stretch for the semester

Apparently I am in good company in my bewilderment at Chemistry these past several weeks.  I can see on young faces all around me the universal "ruh roh, raggy" look.  It's been rough, and yesterday's class did not inspire confidence. 

The professor repeatedly said "Relax. If you've done well on homework and the previous test, you'll be fine. You'll do very well."  Uh.   My homework average is 72 because of one assignment I mistakenly thought was due on a later date and on which I made a zero, and then another which I started late and gave up with an execrably low mark.  Thank goodness for all those good grades to drag up the boners. My only other test was an 82, so I'm very middle of the road.  Nice work, if I can maintain the middle of the road, but I'm sunk if I don't do at least a middling job on the test. *sigh*

I really don't want to take this course again.

My final is in the morning.  Any minute now I could get word on whether I'm accepted into the RN program, and I've got so much to do to get ready to mosey down to the NRA convention.  Much to do, and miles to go before I sleep.  One last day of work today and then I'm off.

I expect to hear of your success. You have that unswerving determination that not only makes a good student but a good nurse. I think you have nailed it.

See ya there, and do the work... It'll pay off in the long run!
