Quikie.. or Quick one, I guess?


Exam time crush is getting to the point where it is like... well, you know when you're eating a wrap or something gooey and messy, where everything falls out of the back- well it is sort of like when you're on the last bite, and there is so much to try and cram in, but so little to do it with...Now I want a souvlaki wrap...

My first exam is in about 7 1/2 hours from now. I've set 4 alarm clocks to make sure I get up at some point, and sent my mom and email asking her to call me 20 minutes before the exam starts to make sure I am up and out the door. This exam I am confident for it, I think. I am only worried about my Physical Geography exam, simply because it is much more of a science based course than those that I've taken over the past few years. It took a while to get into the course, but I hope the exam goes well, I've been prepping all week for both, so it comes down to Tomorrow morning, and Saturday evening. I prefer the evening exam, if for no other reason, I know I will be awake... And have had the day to cram that last minute stuff in.

All the best to those writing exams over the next few weeks, I'll post an update before the holidays are over! Happy Holidays! Enjoy the break... I know I will =)

Ignorant and Free?

I've been going through the TED talks Youtube videos lately, and I happened upon this one. It is a talk given by Bennington College's president, Liz Coleman. It is an interesting video, interesting perspective. Not quite sure what my thoughts are yet... what do you think? Post a comment, let me know...

I think that Liz Coleman says it much better than others who have tried to express similar ideas lately...
