Today was pretty good. We had a quiz in Linear Algebra which I think I did okay on--most of my work I could check with my calculator, so it went fairly smoothly. Then I goofed around here for a bit and went to Orgo at 1:00 as usual. As usual, it was long as hell, but I realized for the first time (d'oh) that there are no men in my section of the lab. There are four lab groups along our section and of the members, one is me and the other seven are women. So we had kind of a group therapy thing going...only other Orgo people under the pain and suffering of an Orgo Lab. Turns out this one girl, Caitlin, and I have Kanene as a mutual friend. She and her lab partner are in Orgo for Life Science majors, so I asked them how Coleman was as a professor--I'd had him as a lab instructor last year and he was pretty good. The class is at freakin' 8:00 in the morning, though. Whew. Thank God I'm not a bio/neurosci major.
I was also commiserating with another girl, whose name I don't know, about the spectroscopy problem on the test. Seems Professor Harbron made a mistake in writing it and nobody got the damn thing right. Her idea of restitution was to give people partial credit. Our (that is, this other student and my) take on the whole thing was, either give us full credit for it or completely eliminate it from the test. Either way is fine with me--I got a 158/200 on the test, which is a 79. If she drops the question, I'll have a 146/180, which is an 81; if she gives us full credit, I'll have a 166/200, which is an 83. But, we both agreed, even though it would be the fair thing to do (since it was the professor's mistake and thus we should not be held accountable), she's not likely to give us that luxury.
Other than that, Orgo was a nice social hour for me. I'm feeling more free and easy these days, than I have in a long time, even though I'm regretful about the way a lot of things have gone. Life is just a series of strange dichotomies, I guess...

Perhaps you should try directing the Shakespeare at them, rather than climbing into the balcony to do the recitation...
