Doubt yourself. That is what school has taught me.

Alas, being finally free from the rightfully named doomsday, otherwise known as my finals, I stand to reiterate the most important lesson of all.

Always and never change your answers – especially in multiple choice. As anyone would know is perhaps on par with the significance of a president’s choice.

I have had a friend who told me to go hard on my instinct. So I did.

I took math in the morning and biology in the afternoon, though not wanting knowing what my math mark was, I was able to take a glance at my supposedly best subject, and of course, all the questions that I had doubts about were wrong. That being said, I also have the nicest biology teacher humanely possible, right before the test she specifically contributed to my further self-rage. She helped us review everything on the test. Thanks a lot.

Oh, and gave us a bunch of easy questions to screw me over. Jerk

Here goes the 21st century instinct – Smartassism

1. Give sympathy to weird words derived from Latin or Greek.

What filters ammonia from an annelid?

  • clitella (because it sounds like a funny slightly dirty word.  or…
  • blah blah blah
  • blah blah blah
  • nephridia (it’s too pretty, duh)

2. Use logic

What is the body’s specific defense against pathogens?

  • blah blah blah
  • blah blah blah
  • eh smeh smeh
  • mucus (it says the body’s specific defense, so it has to be from le corps. Almost got me there, hah)
  • vaccines (like I said – logic)

3. Comfort yourself with reality

Something is either or neither whichever.

  • blah blah blah
  • pollen grain (2N) – (We reviewed this yesterday, I had made a mistake, I wrote 2N on the left side of…and N on the right…yes, it was this one. Right? Flip memory( times x) Rethink. Right)
  • blah blah blah
  • embryo (N) – (I got this in the bag)

Did I study? No.

Quote  “I leave with a snootier expression comparable to my cat’s”

Should I? No. Well what shall I do?

Screw instincts. 21st century is for misanthropy.

Blame teacher Doubt yourself – and most definitely include this in your final project for peer tutoring.
