think I want to hide this away where no one can find it. every day is so stupidly boring, and so am I.
mmm. exam today was very disappointing. feel like I studied for nothing; it was so simple I finished after 10 minutes or something. but then when people were chattering afterwards they must have been brainless because they couldn’t figure out, for some reason, that the memory order is perception, encoding, storage and retrieval. even if i’d never taken a psychology class in my life i’d be able to figure that one out. also there were only 31 questions when he said there’d be 40. even 40 isn’t a lot, so 31? how can 31 questions be worth 25%? that isn’t fair. of course, i’d be far more outraged if I didn’t think i’d gotten every one right. 🙂
oh, except one about an experiment testing forensic psychologists compared with laymen at offender profiling. but why! why should we have to remember examples and the results of past experiments anyway? I never take notes on those.
ooo. then I went up to the lifespan lecturer’s office because she’d posted the results of the exam already. wow! everyone did badly. it looked like the mean score was about 40 (out of 70). I was standing there looking at mine and it was 63 and I was thinking “how very crap.” then someone said “oh look, the highest is 63,” at about the same time as someone asked me, “what’d you get?”
for some reason it made me feel imbecilic so I think I walked away without answering. i’ve been reading ever since but still don’t feel better. I should have felt . … hm.
