Math test corrections

I got a 51 on the test.  I wrote out the four definitions that I didn't get full credit on, so now at least I'll have a 55 on the test.  And I think I can do one of the other problems, and he said you get half the points on those, so that will be a 58.  I'm afraid I'm going to get in trouble at work if I don't do the work thing I'm supposed to be doing.  I kind of feel bad that I haven't done it yet.

math test definitions

Usually teachers say write as much as is necessary to make sure that I know that you know what you're talking about, what the question was asking about.  So when we were supposed to define terms, I wrote them in two different ways, to make sure he knew I knew.  But afterwards he said that's wrong, don't include this extra unnecessary information in a definition.  BUT the book does that, in their definitions they sometimes says blah in other words blah.  So I was also following the book's example.  But I just wrote out the definitions from the book that I did wrong on the test, because we can get more points on the test for doing that, and none of these particular ones had the "in other words" part.  So I'm not even going to bother to say anything else to him about it, unless he somehow brings it up.

math class and work

I'm getting that bad feeling about working on my math.  Which i know is stupid because I still have till the end of the semester to do better, there's not just today there's more time, but because I can't finish by today it makes me want to just stop.  I have 20 pages in chapter 1 to read, which really actually I *could* get done by class time today at 1:40, but I'm also supposed to re-write stuff on my test and I can't get both of those things done before class today.  And also I'm supposed to be doing a thing for work right now.

I'm gonna write the definitions at least because that should be easy.

ethics bowl

Ever since the meeting on the thursday before last, so the 15th, I've had it on my to-do list to do the research and write up for the next one.  I pictured myself doing it, but somehow I didn't have time.  I mean, I could easily have had time, but I was doing other things.  I don't remember what I did on thursday night, but on friday and saturday I was with hunter, and part of sunday too.  I don't know, I don't remember.  I assume there was a lot of sitting around being tired after hunter was gone, because I don't really relax most of the time with him, I'm engaged and doing things with him.  I kept somehow forgetting to squeeze it in, then I was trying on tuesday or wednesday, one of those days was when I actually started reading.  But I was slow because I was thinking, I don't know how to do a write up about this.  When I see that I'm not going to be able to finish something, I always just stop doing it, there's something subconscious that makes me have to stop, like, there's a feeling that comes and I feel sick if I keep going.  I stop doing the thing so I can stop feeling sick.  With some things, just thinking about the thing for a while allows me to see how to do it and then I can go back and do it without feeling sick.  But that hasn't been happening with anything this semester.  (Or lots of other semesters.)  I was trying to do it on thursday.  The day of the meeting.  The 22nd.  I didn't go to work because I was so behind on sleep.  I walked hunter to his class though.  Then I went back to my room and instead of working on the thing for ethics bowl (which I could never have finished in time anyway), I fell asleep and didn't wake up until 7:05.  I missed the meeting and my class.  On saturday night, I got sleepy at like 8:30.  I was with hunter in the art building.  He didn't want to go home yet.  I sat there and did a small amount of studying, but i was mostly just being sleepy, then he was talking about the essays for his application and he had asked me to look at them days ago, so I did it then, and it took forever, we were there till 12:30.  Then my head was hurting and the roommates and friends were playing loud music and shouting, and I slept until 12:00, and I took an ibuprofen at one point when I woke up and hunter stayed there with me until I said i felt better, even though, he later said, he actually had wanted to go home and do homework and play a video game.

I was trying to figure out how to tell michael about what happened with ethics bowl.  Like, how I didn't mean to just do nothing and not come to the meeting and not contact anyone, but he just came in here and asked me about it, so that's done.  I just told him I slept through the meeting and that I need to quit because it's making me not get enough sleep and get sick.
