Off to my final. Jesus, I'm scared. Reminds…
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Off to my final. Jesus, I'm scared. Reminds me of something Steve Hofstetter said about the last final of the semester: you forget to bring a pencil, you can't remember the TA's name to write on your bluebook, and you just can't care enough to do more than try to breeze through the questions and do all the essays half-assed and leave an hour early. Why is that okay? Because everyone else is doing the same damn thing.
