Shaken AND Stirred

In Thought on February 27, 2007 at 7:14 pm

Learner took his first exam of the semester this morning, a 185-point monster over the book of Acts. The Smiling Assassin has struck, and Learner’s wondering how to stop the bleeding.

The sad part, he says, is he actually studied – 50 pages of notes, 250 pages of previously highlighted readings, a memorized outline of the 28 chapters of Acts – he studied it all.

The mistake he made was not doing the Greek translations, which, even though the Assassin said were going to be minimal on the exam, were not. (That, or he and the Assassin have two different ideas of what “minimal” means, which could very well be a possibility, as he is German.) Either way, says Learner, “Whups.”

He’s hoping for a big curve – a circle curve even, where the worst you do, the better you do – but that’s a little optimistic, especially for him. We’ll see. In the meantime, he’s gearing up for starting in on Galatians tomorrow and hoping for the best.
