What just happened?
A whole lot of stupid!

My statistics test has really turned itself around, on my last test I only missed one. I was pretty gosh darn proud of myself. And I even went up to the board and did a problem, and I did it right and everything. So yeah, things were going fairly well. That is until tonight. There I was, sitting at my desk at work, with an hour to go before class started. I was just finishing up my second to the last assignment and I had one more assignment to do (we hand in like 7 at a time) and I was just buzzing along thinking to myself "Damn, these problems are a lot of work. Lots of meaningless busy work really, it's not like her to assign this much crap." But I shrugged it off thinking maybe she was throwing us a handful of easy problems to weight the grade a little. I finished my last assignment and went on to the next one when, oddly they were the exact same set of problems as before. So I investigated a bit. Turns out I had done the last four assignments completely wrong. Not the math part...no no, the actual problems. I did 7.5's set of problems but for 7.4. So rather than do 7-11 on 7.4 I had done 11-17, and on 7.5, I had done 1-13 instead of 11-17.


So now, on top of my blog speech, and the test I have Thursday, I have to redo 70% of my homework. Well done Katy dear.

Today's thing I learned: Always, Always, ALWAYS double check...ALWAYS

That sucks. At least you found out before you turned it in.

that does suck. I tell trent that all the time. I hope he figures it out way before college. but sometimes you have to make your own mistakes.

Hey, chalk it up to good practice. Good practice that sucks, but still.
