Exam Time

After 13 weeks of homework, assignments, tests, and other minor forms of professorial abuse, we happy few are just days away from the END. Between us and the END, of course, are exams, a particularly nasty form of abuse designed to validate a semester’s worth of effort by the student but which, through student artifice, is actually a massive test of retention skills. At this point in my personal curriculum, two classes will require a take-home exam; the point being that there is just TOO MUCH material to be regurgitated in a 3 hour window…..best this work be done over a 3 day window.

Difficult? Yes. Impossible? No.

Will I do it again next semester? Absolute-Damn-Lutely!

    I’m doing a Level 3 media studies production, and am making a docoumentary on university. I was wondering if I could use this photo as a still as part of it? It is a completely class-related movie, and will not be distributed or copied, and seen only by myself and my teacher, Ms Jen Lloyd.
    I am in Year 13 at Queen Margaret College, Wellington, New Zealand. If you could get back to me as soon as possible through the email above, that would be great.
    Thank you.
    PS this isn’t spam 🙂

“Life’s hard, son. It’s harder when you’re stupid.” — The Duke.

Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate,no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad, an introduction, in solitude a solace and in society an ornament.It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage. - Joseph Addison
The term informavore (also spelled informivore) characterizes an organism that consumes information. It is meant to be a description of human behavior in modern information society, in comparison to omnivore, as a description of humans consuming food. George A. Miller [1] coined the term in 1983 as an analogy to how organisms survive by consuming negative entropy (as suggested by Erwin Schrödinger [2]). Miller states, "Just as the body survives by ingesting negative entropy, so the mind survives by ingesting information. In a very general sense, all higher organisms are informavores." - Wikipedia
