Every point matters & I’m hungry.

Today was my second day of lecture. I have to admit that I’m a bit of a teacher snob. I have a degree in education so I know what I like. Also, I became a little spoiled this summer listening to my favorite YouTube teachers and Podcast teachers talk about things I need to understand. They are great educators. My current theory instructor pretty much just goes over her PowerPoint’s and doesn’t present the information in a logical, systematic way. Teach-Check Comprehension-Re-teach is not part of her style. So once again I’m on my own for really figuring this stuff out. Don’t get me wrong, she’s a nice person and probably a very good nurse, but an educator she is not.

We had another quiz today. I missed one question because I just wasn’t thinking. (Duh!) and another question for sure. I’m fairly positive that I got all the others correct. That means I’ll get another point added to my score at the end of the semester. Each quiz is worth one point and you must answer 70% correct to receive the point. Now, there are a total of 1000 points for the semester so each quiz is (you guessed it) 1/1000 of my total grade. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but my experience has shown that it is possible to increase your letter grade by only one or two points. Conclusion….study hard for each quiz!

In one hour from now I go to get my wisdom teeth removed. Yea! (can you sense my sarcasm?) I haven’t had anything to eat since dinner last night and I’m starting to get hungry for lunch. Looks like my next meal will consist of water, broth and pudding. Actually my next few meals will consist of that. It’s going to be a rough Labor Day weekend. I’m going to be irritable.
