Had a talk today about what constitutes cheating. My usual policy is if you ask yourself that question, it is.

I had more of an entry to write but then I passed out.

Yeah, that's a pretty good definition.

Will trade you, though. 45 on first O-chem test, 64 on 2nd (when I thought I did really well - botched the Stereoisomers), means I have to get an A on the O-chem final just to pass the bloody class. :(

I'd rather deal with drama than face the wrath of the O-chem exam.

ball sack! :O I hate thinking I did really well and then getting a D. Or less. Whoo Calc 2.

Anyway it's not my drama. :) I wasn't having the conversation with the boyfriend. I was having it with a friend.

I thought so, but I'd still rather deal with a friend's drama than bromohydroborohydrinalognation or whatever we're on now.

Yeah, that test was total balls. I got the mechanisms down-pact, but half the test was isomers, and it didn't occur to me until like 5 minutes left that I should put all the long chains into simple R-groups and then fiddle around with them that way.

Total balls.

Hope your friend's doing okay!

Ask if you can do anything for extra credit. Of course, my teacher was balls out awesome, and your teacher... um... sucks. But if you look sad enough and explain that you really do know the material, you just test badly, maybe he will take pity on you.

Trouble is it's only you introspective types that go around asking yourself questions in the first place -- for that matter, even if I were the sort to ask myself questions, I'm about the last authority I'd consult on the subject. Maybe "if you ask your best friend that question, it is"?
