Beating myself up

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Its pretty apparent after last night, I have way too much going on in my life. Last night was my midterm for my Health Information technology class. I spent most of the day studying for it, and had reviewed the notes several times previously. However, I still don't think I did very well. I think the reason I didnt do well is because we were told the week before that the test was going to be essay and fill in the blank, and I think fill in the blank as, you fill in the word, and they give you a sentence or something that corresponds. The fill in the blank for this test was interpreted as, here is the word, now write one sentence to define or sum up this word. So essentially, I studied all wrong. I was focusing on minute key points of each term, and the terms themselves.

literally, when I got the paper, i was like I KNOW ALL THESE WORDS! But, trying to sum up a sentence for each of them, I froze. Looking back on my notes after the test, I know I mixed up two of the terms, and I know I also may have misdefined two. I have been trying so hard, and I just beat myself up over this, because looking back I knew I knew all the information! it sucks!!!!

I'm just doing too much. I work 40 hours a week, go to a graduate school program 2 nights a week from 530-830, I am taking an online EMT Basic course at another college that takes up study time, we run a home business out of our house I have to help with, and basic taking care of the house, and myself, and trying to stay on track with being healthy and losing some weight. It is just too much.

Sorry for the self rant. I just needed to get it off my chest. By writing it down, maybe I can close this book and quit worrying about the grade I dont know will appear next week. I know I'll just have to try my hardest on the remaining assignments. That test did count for 35% of my grade though, so I hope I didn't totally blow it.

    Thanks everyone. Spoke to a classmate that works downstairs, he had the same concerns that I did... maybe it was a general misunderstanding with everyone!

    You did the best you could with what you had or thought was the way it was going. Can't undo it.....so, you have to move on to the next subject or activity in your life. emoticon emoticon

    I'm sure you did fine too girl! Think of this way-with a one-word fill in the blank sentence, you're either wrong or right, there's no in-between. With writing a sentence, that is so subjective, so you may get partial points, where if you were only getting to write down one word, and it was wrong, you're out.

    It's good to vent, it gets it off you chest, and off your mind, and you can get back to making yourself a priority :)
