Autumn Semester 2012 Is Now In The Bag (Why didn’t I publish this last year?)

Finished my final, final just a bit ago. There were a few questions I wasn’t prepared for, but I mostly remembered how to do it, and my answers worked, so I feel pretty good about the whole thing.

This semester just flew by, I guess time flies when you aren’t just going through the motions. As is appropriate to college, I learned quite a bit this semester. Not necessarily the things I was taught, but you take what you can get.

I learned that good grades are easy to get if you are intelligent and willing to do the things you need to do. I’m usually a perfectionist and I think that is something that gets in my way some times. Perfection is good, but good is almost as good. There’s nothing wrong with partial credit.

Instructors, be they TAs or professors are people too, and they are subject to the same mistakes everybody else makes. Many times it isn’t crystal clear what they expect from their students. They do seem mostly willing to help students understand what they weren’t clear on.
