On March 4th, I wrote a calculus midterm. This midterm was in my terms the only way i was going to pass the class, and take the stress off of what i needed to get on the final exam to pass. Now lets go back another week.I found myself frantically studying derivatives and integrals and other crazy things i am sure i will never fully comprehend. Knowing damn well at the time that i will most likely fail this midterm and doom my success at being a Jedi knight...The pressure was really on for passing this midterm. But not only passing this midterm, but to achieve at least a 70% on it to make life way easier in the calculus department. Sitting already at 50% coming out of the first semester of calculus, now looking back at how easy it was. The pressure was really on.
I had to sacrifice doing anything social, even playing video games. Even studying for another midterm that was conveniently on the same date. Thank you math department. All in all i fought hard past the dangerous derivative and illusive integrals to find myself, in a dark place known as RB 2003. Now furiously spewing out as much information as possible onto a calculus midterm. All in all i found myself actually being able to remember how to do the questions. Maybe studying actually pays off (P.S Never really studied before). I felt like i got at least a 70% on this midterm when i went to hand it in. So i know leave the RB 2003, and rejoice out in the hallways as i compare my answers with fellow peers and students. To find out that majority of my answers don't match up with theirs. I now begin to doubt myself and my ability to write math tests. As these people were doing great in the course and knew how to do the material as soon as they looked at it.
I know felt like all my studying was wasted, and that i would be doomed to not be taught the ways of Yoda.
Until today when i finally got the results. 73%!. Everything went according to plan. I will now most likely pass Calculus. Moral to story for anyone who actually read the whole wall of text. Study hard and never give up. Even if the things you are doing makes no sense. Just keep at it and eventually you will reach your goal.
