Alright. Last Exam. The only thing standing between me and The Mocking Jay. Again. But we won't focus on how I was temporarily reading the books out of order. Still don't know how I didn't realize that... Anywho, studying for history, the only class I truly and consistently enjoyed throughout the year.
Our professor told us to review all the articles we'd read and go over the textbook again. Before you go thinking his demands are ridiculous, our textbook is probably about as thick as all the articles we've read put together. We only read 5 articles. Still, in typical Lauren fashion, I've procrastinated spectacularly. Did I reread everything? No. Definitely not. I struggled through those things once, I am not doing it again. I swear, if I ever meet the editor of that textbook I will introduce him/her to Mr. Dictionary and Ms. Spellcheck. Regardless of my feelings on the shoddy at best editing, I skimmed the articles and quickly realized that all four are telling me the exact same thing:
Teaching in history has two spectrums.
Spectrum 1: on one end we have teaching to create good citizens who don't upset the established order. On the other end, we have teaching to create citizens who question everything and want to rebuild society.
Spectrum 2: on one end we focus on teaching the student and following his/her interests. On the other end, we focus on teaching subject matter and how to process that subject matter regardless of what the student thinks or feels.
I assume we're suppose to be in the middle of both spectrums. I'm not in the middle. Oh darn...
I summarized everything in one and a half hand written pages. And yes, I have complete sentences. It's not all point form. Okay! There's one diagram! Sue me.
All of that aside, today's sign that it's time to quit: my feet keep falling asleep. Not at the same time. Once I regain circulation in one, the other nods off. I don't know what that means about me or the way I'm sitting but it's uncomfortable. I'm taking it as a sign that if my feet are sleepy, the rest of me can't be far behind.
Due to sleepiness and studying, I will very quickly speak of Glee, The Hunger Games and that other thing I did today.
1) Glee: I liked this episode more than the last. And who could have foreseen an erection being a plot point. Bravo. I'll speak on this more tomorrow.
2) Hunger Games: I finished reading Catching Fire. I was on the last chapter and had to keep putting it down. Very irritating. I enjoyed the read but I will refrain from reviewing it until I've finished The Mockingjay. I think they'll go better together.
3) My Exam: Went well. My handwriting is my revenge! At least I was kind enough to double space and draw a cute cat waving goodbye and thanking my prof for his tolerance of my class' clear distaste for the program. Remind me again, are paragraphs typically four pages in length? MWAHAHAHAHA!
Alas, that is all. I'm off to bathe and sleep. Not simultaneously. Although... I have been known to do that... No, I'll sleep in my bed. Decided. Three more hours of BEd!
