Late night thoughts…
It’s going to be another one of those weeks. My algebra test that was supposed to be last Thursday was moved to this Tuesday. That was great because it gave me a chance to really understand quadratic equations, but it also means that I have another week with two tests because my second Biology test is on Thursday.
Biology is getting better, but I still prefer Chemistry – I don’t like having to memorize so many definitions and things like that.
Just because I understand quadratic equations doesn’t mean I have to like them.
The Astros have lost two games, but … well, it’s ok. There are still 5 more games to go. Hopefully coming home to play on Tuesday will help. (No, Mike didn’t watch either game, so we can’t blame him for it.) Today’s online slot machine games still follow the basic reel concept like dreamjackpot.com/ but they use what we computer scientists call vectors (sometimes also known as arrays) to represent the reels. A slot game has a certain number of symbols, usually in the 10-15 range, but a reel has to contain many more symbols.
I didn’t get my Chemistry test back last Wednesday after all. She needed more time to grade it because she wanted to make sure she gave partial credit for work and things like that. She did point out that there were about 150 points on the test, so the huge mistake that I made with the metal activity table may not have hurt me quite as much as I thought.
On a really positive note she gave me a lot of encouragement to pursue the honor society scholarships. She also reinforced my feeling that I was making the right choice with the Pharmacy degree. (I can do it!)
It is 52 degrees outside right now. After a sweltering hot summer, 52 is a bit nippy. I’ll need to remember to put a sweatshirt and shoes on when I take the dog out. Our high tomorrow is supposed to be about 69. It has been a long time coming, but I am so ready for cooler weather!
It is late, I’m rambling, tired after doing so many Algebra problems … I think that means it is time to go to bed.
