Exam Week

School Well my first semester of school is finally coming to a close.  Being back in school has been a pretty big shock to my system.  During the first couple of weeks of school, I was so confused.  It’s hard to go from 3 years of pure freedom to 8:30-5:30 almost everyday.  All that being said, my exams are about to start.  I’ve finished all my assignments for all the courses and my first exam is tomorrow morning in Business Communication.  After that, I’ll have the whole weekend to study for the other 4.  Monday is debatably my hardest day for exams, I start with a Programming Exam on Java at 10:30.  At 3:30 I’ll start my Math exam.  The good thing is that at least I have 3 hours in between the two exams so I can do some last hour studying.  Tuesday is my exam in Web Programming; I’ll have questions on XML, HTML, JavaScript and PHP.  I’m pretty comfortable with the first 3 and PHP is my definite weekend in the 4.  I’ll finish up my exam week with an exam Thursday on Business. After that, I get a 3 week break! Climbing I also have a competition this weekend at Cliffhanger.  It’s called November sessions but this year it happens to fall in December so they renamed it December sessions.  For the past 2 years, I’ve set for this competition.  Since it happened to fall on exam weekend, I decided I didn’t have enough time to make the trek out to Coquitlam for 2 days.  On the other hand, I get to compete at the event.  It’ll probably be top 6 problems basic scramble format.  Although my mind should and will be on exams, I’m sure I can take the 4 hour break for a competition.
