PHEW. I am really glad my bio lab final is over.

It was widely rumored to be "brutal", and while I'm not sure I'd go that far, it would have been a nightmare if I hadn't spent large chunks of the last five days preparing. There was absolutely no extra time for thinking something through or dredging something up from memory. If the fact, inference, gel prediction, reason why, enzyme activity, or gel electrophoresis voltage wasn't right there on the tip of the tongue pen, that whole section was DOOMED and it was time to move on to the next.

On the other hand, everything in there was stuff we'd done in lab multiple times. There were no tricks or surprises.

I'm positive I didn't get a perfect score. What I did do was finish in the time given. I'm told that's pretty impressive just by itself.

Spanish final tomorrow.

Yesterday = Spanish "midterm"
Today = two lab reports due + bio lab final
Tomorrow = Spanish final
Friday = head out of town for a weekend square dance, maybe 15 hours on stage
Monday = chem lab final, chem "midterm", chem final (!)
Tuesday = board plane for Japan

Stress shortens your telomeres, you know. I can feel them shrinking.
