I'm supposed to be revising. I just...needed some of the sanity of my online family/friends.
I'm going through my material again. Writing down some tricks of weeds in hopes there's a general 'what makes weeds awesome' type question as there has been the previous four years. Writing down weed control in amenity lands because a) they've also been on each paper for the past four years b) it's the only sort of management I'm going to remember and c) it's the only management that I at present care about. All the rest is industrialised agriculture with the idea "let's throw chemicals on them, yaaay! OHNOES the government STOLED them from us!" (Just the point of view we're given from the profoessor, and no, he doesn't speak that way; he has impeccable vocabulary. He does have a profoundly present Somerset accent.)
I've never based my revision on past papers before. Given my peers' reliance on an "altruism" question coming up on the Animal Behaviour exam since it had the 4 years before yet not coming up this year...well, I'm sure my decision is folly. But Animal Behaviour was a class that learned by connection and was continuous - connecting things up, going 'ah, so this works with this, right!'
Weed Biology is a pool of random information to memorise for each section. My brain does not have the capacity for this right now. I know that. I also know I only need to get a 20 and this has ALWAYS been my least favourite lecture - like Humans and the Changing World last year. If I were Hermione, this would be my Defence Against the Dark Arts, with a boggart-McGonagall waiting at the end and my inevitable failure... So I think I'm going to let my standards slip for this one and not drive myself crazier than I need to.
And now I'm late, I'm late for a very important date! No time to say hello (goodbye), I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!
[1.5hrs more revision, then shower for nice clean feel and off to my doom - er - exam. Then home for revision 2.0 for Stats tomorrow at 9am. Poot. HELLO WEEKEND, COME SEE ME?]
