This is the worst midterm I've ever had to take. It was posted at 9am this morning, but because I had classes all day I wasn't able to begin writing it until 4:30 today, it consists of 4 comparative essays, requiring quotes and citing. It's due tomorrow at 12:10, it's likely I will end up having to skip my morning class in order to get this done. Meanwhile some people will have been able to work on it since 9am this morning, doesn't seem fair to have a midterm that doesn't allow for every student to get an equal amount of time to work on. I would have skipped my class today but it had a midterm.

I dunno if that's awesome or terrible. The whole get one full day to do an essay thing. Out here we've had "write an outline you can use to write a 4 page paper in 50 minutes" but never that.

It's 4 separate essays that I have to write...

Any in class writing midterm is cake because the prof doesn't expect as much from you and if you have a page minimum you can always write bigger.

It feels like this midterm was designed as if the prof thought we were going to be slaving away on the mid term from 9am until when it is due, completely disregarding the fact that people's class schedules vary which creates an unequal amount of time allotted for each student.

At least you know with the 50 minute writing assignment that the professor grades accordingly, and if you know the material you won't have to worry as much about the advanced composition of a normal essay because it's not a paper that you have been working on for a month.

Is this the art history class? I never had one that gave you so little time for a take home midterm. An easy way to handle those sorta things is to make sure you include all the key terms and buzz words. Most graders just scan over your essays anyway so if you have the words they're looking for you're cool.

I usually get some compensation for gas if I'm driving my drunk mates around or picking them from a bar/club. And of course the other way around too, if I'm been driven around.

It's open book and open note anyway so I'm not sure how I could cheat.

You could have someone write it for you. If SSG was still around i'd suggest her.

Yes it's for that class, do you think 7 pages is adequate length for 4 comparative essays? I could probably write a whole lot more but with the time given I didn't want to get lost doing one paper so I tried to keep them as concise as possible.

Yeah that should be fine with the amount of time you were given. Usually 10 pages is around what they're looking for a term paper or take home final. Just be sure to put all the key words in, and not just ones that are in the book but also ones that were mentioned in lecture.

Haha, most definitely. Harriet Tubman's thimble jumps to mind.

My g/f got me hooked last week, now I'm 5 eppys into S2. I loved the H.G. Wells twist. Now I'm just waiting for more episodes with her in it damnit.

Also, Claudia = <3 "Claudia Donovan, Warehouse 13 next generation" *Throws up Spock sign*

Unfortunately, the series has been cancelled, so the half dozen episodes left will be it.

Heh?

Season 3 is already over and it was renewed for a 4th season months ago. They're even adding 7 more episodes to the usual 13 a season.

The H.G. Wells character is also getting a spinoff apparently.

Ha. Yeah, wouldn't make sense for Syfy to cancel their most popular show.

Sorry, late reply, but have you used CyanogenMod on the Touchpad? If so, how does ICS compare? Interested to know because I have family with Touchpads.

Hrm, I open facebook and the first thing on my wall is something my friend linked (male) "Pictures of cute boys with beards holding cats."

his comment was "Pretty sure 95% of my friends will like this. "
What on earth is going on...
