Don't know what to talk about today.

I looked at the blog suggestions or whatever they are on the course page, but honestly, I'm kind of tired of talking about/thinking about my paper.  At the same time, I need to blog for credit but I cannot think of anything I want to write about at the moment.  I don't have to work this weekend, so I get to be one of those "it is Friday...woo hoo!" people that normally make me want to punch them in the jeans.  Mostly, I am pretty excited about the weekend.  I do have quite a bit of school-related work to do, though.  Oh, and I just found out that I didn't make the score required to skip other assignments and seminar on the prequiz for my A&P II class.  That's a bummer.  This is the first time that I haven't scored high enough, excluding that one time that I took the dang quiz and it never reported (or I guess, saved) my score.  I am really curious to see what the correct answers were because I remember being really unsure on a couple of questions, but not as many as I missed.  Sure, it is possible that I did get them wrong, but each week the instructor posts something about how a question or two on the prequiz were invalid for some reason.  Of course, we don't hear about this until the unit is over...I'm really looking forward to the course/instructor review for that class.  I will have a lot to say about it in general, not much of it very good or nice.  Not for this class, though.  This class has been great.


  1. Hi Carly,
    How are you. I am sorry that you are not having a good week. You are scaring me about the A&P, I am taking A&P I in my next term, so I hope it will go well for me. But I didn't get the prequiz thing and you can not find about your result till the end of the week, that does not sound good to me. Maybe you can help me with it or give me some points to do better.
    Wish you Happy Holidays Carly:)

  2. Fariha,

    For A&P I, I had an excellent instructor. For each seminar, we had worksheets to print out that we filled in during seminar, and they were immensely helpful for the quizzes. The prequizzes work this way: You have until Thursday at midnight to take it, and if you score 92% or better, you do not have to attend seminar, and for my class in particular, you did not have to complete a written assignment for each unit. This may vary by instructor, so be sure to look into it. For both A&P classes, most of the info you need for discussions and quizzes is found in the text book, so be sure to do your reading! An important concept in both classes is "homeostasis," which is the state of balance the body is constantly trying to maintain, and a lot of the assignments have to do with this topic, so make sure you understand how all of the body systems work together to maintain homeostasis. Good luck and if I can ever be of any help to you, please let me know.
