Question 1: With reference to NAMED examples discuss the human and veterinary health implications of weeds.
Answer 1: I wrote an essay. Was it a good essay? Piffle, laughter, aaaah no. But it was an essay, it did have a number of NAMED examples and it was a discussion of human and veterinary health.
Question 2: Discuss the statement: 'The history of weeds is the history of mankind'.
Answer 2: Oh, I had a ball with this one. From weeds-before-man to weeds-in-the-Bible to mentioning all humans perishing and weeds living on... I just had fun. Not a fantabs essay, but an essay (and a done one - my fave) nonetheless.
I passed. If I didn't, I'll be shocked enough to eat a sock. I have also come to realise that when I am peeved enough about exams I write about the death of humanity. Clearly, I am the student to look out for...
Awwr, shoot, I thought about a very similar essay in the shower today and decided that I wanted to include the sentence, "If farmers had their druthers in a magical world, weeds would disappear with the wave of a wand and a word; in this world, they must make due with the second-best alternative: herbicide, the best we have in our arsenal." I forgot on the exam.
(It's clear I take this all very seriously once I'm IN the exam, now, isn't it?)
And onto the stats! Thank goodness for MCQ exams! We all feel considerably less broken now! 3/7 down - halfway point is 45mins into tomorrow's exam! Woop woop!
Edit: Also Jojo drove me to campus so we could get our Entomology tests back. 61 and 62. (: Not fantastic but, uhm, it's entomology - not really my field? So woop for 25 out of 40 points already! And she gave me books! Books are good. (: Pride...Prejudice...Zombieeeees...
