One final exam remains

This morning, I took my English 102 final. It was pretty laid back, especially because it was open book and open note. I was just shooting for a B or a C. There were a few works of literature that I didn’t read carefully: “A Doll’s House” by Henrik Ibsen and “Antigone” by Sophicles. The other two I had to write about were “A Raisin in the Sun” by Lorraine Hansberry and “Their Eyes Were Watching God” by Zora Neale Hurston.

I also received my last essay (on “Their Eyes Were Watching God”) and essay 2 (on Dylan Thomas’ “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night“) from a couple of months ago, which happened because she didn’t receive a hard copy. I received a B and a B+ for those two. I was so stoked, you don’t even know!

*** When writing an essay, here’s my tip. While analyzing quotes, ask yourself, “So what?” Don’t leave any question in the readers’ mind about what your point is.

So what?

Today and tomorrow, I’ll be studying for my Philosophy 101 final exam on “Great Religions of the World.” It’s cumulative of the whole semester, and I need to have 43 vocabulary words memorized.

Oh, I need to turn in my essay sometime today on “A Raisin in the Sun”. That’s what I’m doing at the Arcadia Public Library right now.

For the rest of you in finals week, keep the end in mind. It’s almost over! 🙂

  2. Thanks Chico! I hope nothing else comes up that’ll cause another delay in my transfer. If so, I have plan B if it doesn’t work out immediately.

  3. It’s the business which I’m not allowed to blog about. A lawyer actually called me about it a few months ago. Do you know what I’m talking about now? 🙂
