To Study, Or Not To Study?

UPDATE: I will post updates on each perio.
UPDATE: Perio Day Two posted.
UPDATE: Perio Day Three posted.

Gah, it’s perio week this week (cue the gasps and screams of horror). For those of you not ‘in the know’, this week is when we’re having our periodic tests, which are usually quite hellish and require quite a bit of time to get ready for (thing is, we don’t usually get many classes devoted to preparing for the perios, so we usually have to review on our own, with the course outlines as our only guide). Personally, I can guarantee that it’s extremely likely that I’ll get owned, due to the fact that I’m exerting minimum effort to prepare (read: I played Total Annihilation today), and that whenever I study, roughly half of the stuff I read leaks out of my head in no time at all, therefore sealing my fate. Still, I could be inspired have a stroke of luck, so it’s not completely a lost cause.

Today, we had Algebra, Filipino and SocSci. Algebra was a bit of handful, because I had trouble solving some of the questions (so I ended up shotgunning maybe a quarter of the questions). Filipino was a tad easier, because I spent the previous afternoon just reading El Fili–however, this did have a negative effect: I wasn’t able to study the vocabulary really well, so I had to rely on my somewhat dim memory of those words. SocSci was a bit okay, because I studied, but it still wasn’t enough for me to be completely confident (damn those Five Pillars, so hard to memorize their Arabic names). Still, I’m reasonably sure I won’t miserably fail.

Good luck to me. *gulps*

PS: Listen to the song. I’m sure you won’t regret it. 😀

Perio Day 2:

Geometry: Well, this one was fine, although I will admit that I’m not entirely sure about my answers. Still have hopes for this though.
English: This is one time when I will be thankful that Ma’am Osit it our teacher–I don’t think anyone had a perio as easy as ours. No Without Seeing The Dawn, even.
Chemistry: This should’ve been easy, but I had sadly forgotten to bring a scientific calculator, so my questionnaire is full of solutions. Thankfully, there were very few equation questions, and I was able to estimate, which saved a good deal of time for the rest.


Perio Day 3:

Physics: Thankfully, I had my calculator today, so this was quite easy. I might have gone a little too fast and made rushed mistakes, though.
Values Education: One word: pwned. The only parts I’m confident in are the first one and the last one.
Biology: Not bad, although I think I could have done a lot better if I just studied (yeah, I didn’t have enough time to study, cramming the ValEd project and all).
