Final Final

Over the next two days I will take the final finals of my academic career (not counting my dissertation defense as a final as it is surely much much worse). I am not sure how I should view these occasions. Perhaps I should be working extra hard. Did I come all this way to give up on the final finals? Shouldn't I go out with a bang and smoke my last two academic exams? Then again, I've also been at this game so long that I don't care much for "grades" any more. To be honest I don't care much about the two classes I took this semester either. They were moderately interesting and I like both of the professors; but I am quite indifferent on the subject matter and particularly on the prospect of my attempting to master any of said matter. I've learned enough to know that most things I learn will be forgotten within a fortnight. Thus, here am I blogging with my Chemical Reaction Engineering notes as a prop under my right forearm and my Nonequilibrium Gas Dynamics text book under the left. Isn't it ironic? A little too ironic? You tell me Alanis, you seem to be the expert.

From the English major-- Alanis had it all wrong. . .

What is that raised eyebrow of yours implying punk?

Hal said...

Sounds neat. Like my kind of thing.

Unfortunately the exam gave me one of the most spectacular academic ass whoopings I've ever experienced. I mean, I've taken much much harder exams than this one. But never (or at least, almost never) have I performed so poorly. I choked big time.

I am not sure you found this or not DR Church

You were talking about a clasic training hypoxia video with cards. I think this is it.

Enjoy
