My Apologies

It's been far too long since I updated this. My FM exam is this friday! It came up extremely quickly. My plan for the week is reviewing all my formulas and doing practice problems again and again. Any other non-essential school work is getting bumped until next week.

It seems like the trick to getting all of these problems done is figuring out what trick is being used it each problem. This sounds simple but you have an average of 5 minutes per question. In practice I have come across problems where if you have forgotten one relationship between equations you can spend an hour on the question and not be able to figure it out! That can be really frustrating.

Whoever writes these exams is really sneaky too! They figure out a solution and thats one of the multiple choice solutions. Then, I think, they figure out the four most common ways to screw it up and put those down as the other solutions. Just because your math came out to one of the answers doesn't mean it's correct. Not at all.

Unfortunately Megan has to travel this week. Tomorrow morning she leaves for Vegas. While this means I'll have the apartment to myself, I will miss her support while I'm trying to get all of this done. Also, I have to try and not degenerate into a disgusting mess of what used to be a man in the four days she is gone. Oh, she'd probably appreciate not coming back to an apartment covered in filth from me studying too much to clean. I think that's asking a lot, don't you?

Friday will be great though because after my exam I'll relax a bit and then drive down to JFK to pick Megan up from her trip. Saturday I think we are heading up to our wedding venue to meet with a florist and Sunday we are going to a Crate and Barrel registry event to register for our wedding. I love that store. I'd like to spend every Valentine's Day picking out stuff at Crate and Barrel for people to consider purchasing for me.
