Ouch. I can't imagine having to wake up that early to go to class. It almost makes me not feel so bad about having to get up around 6:30. Was the weather bad where you lived?
Apparently they rarely cancel class where I go too. (Lock Haven) They do use 2 hour delays quite a bit though. My one teacher was talking about it today and they said the reason behind this is because the college loses money when they cancel class, but if they use a 2 hour delay they still get the money and most of the teachers cancel their classes anyway.
and this morning i took my Journalism and Creative Writing final, which took me from 6:30 AM to noon, becuae i had to write like 5 essays in a different writing style for CW, and then in Journalism, they gave us little snipets of information about something and we had to write an article about it, which took a while to even find out what the snipets were about.
Yeah, I know how hard tests like that can be. But finals already? The semester just started for me. I couldn't imagine having finals already. Did you start earlier?
This weekend was the first weekend that I went home so far this year. I have to teach my girlfriends sister a math class because she is home schooled. This is great practice for my teaching at a school.
The good thing is that it counts towards hours of my observation that I have to do. I can count it up to 20 out of the 80 hours that I have to complete.
