Last night it started raining, and I think the storms are bringing in a cold front. Next week, the weather is supposed to be in the 50s!!! I’m so excited.
This weekend has been spent, you guessed it, studying. I worked on a practice exam yesterday. I bombed it. Bombed. it. I am so discouraged and disappointed. I thought I had been doing better in both water and air. I was close on some problems but either made dumb calculation errors or had a gap in my understanding. And I do see a clear improvement on air and water problems that would have stumped me before. So what happened?
I think the practice exam showed that there are still some gaps in my understanding that need to be addressed. I will continue focusing on my weaknesses these next two weeks. I’m trying not to feel down over this, especially since I KNOW that I have improved since I last took the exam. But it’s just a humbling reminder that even though I’ve been working really hard with my studies, it may not be enough. I can still fail this for the third time. And I certainly wouldn’t be the first to do so.
But I’m sad and the weather matches my mood. And what do I do when I’m sad?
Wow, that picture is unnecessarily large but I’ll keep it. You might like to know that I placed the bag of yarn on the floor, and my dog immediately tried running off with one. I bought this yarn to make the Rhiannon Slouch Sweater. I probably won’t be able to start it until after the exam, and probably won’t finish until, I don’t know, May 2019. But whatever. GOALS.
Last night on SNL’s Weekend Update, Michael Che made a joke about how women love yarn, and I was literally holding several balls of yarn in my hands when he made that joke. Husband was very amused.
I guess I should go study now. I hope you all have a great Sunday!
