I’ve been, and will continue to be, consumed by summer classes. That’s where I’ve been. In fact, this was written while sitting in Starbucks… so I’m technically still at school. I had my Wine Science final, today. Man, it was way harder than I anticipated. I studied for a “large section of multiple choice” type test. There was way less MC than I had hoped. There was a lot more “recall exact details” type questions, which I could not really do with any confidence. When you study in anticipation of multiple choice tests, you cover a large amount of information, in less detail. That’s what I did. *sigh* And to top it off, I got BOTH the wines wrong on the tasting section. I thought the white was a Pinot Gris and the Red was a Cabernet Sauvignon, but the white was a Riesling (my initial guess!) and the red was a Shiraz… No way! I got no mint or chocolate from it… I hope I passed. 🙁
It’s a shame. I found the stuff really interesting, but I’ve not really had enough time to do well in it… I can’t believe he asked us to name the Provinces of Australia and their famous regions! Agh… There was so much geography that I didn’t study. I was all guesses and looking back at previous questions for reference. At least it’s Friday. I’m almost finished my Venti Mocha Frap, and I’m listening to some good streaming tunes. Oh, and I’m kinda working on my late assignment for networking class. Gonna head to the school theatre at 7pm to catch Sideways, in lieu of my last three weeks.
Got a wedding to go to tomorrow… this weekend’s gonna be busy.
PS – my next Starbucks drink is on… Starbucks! They forgot about my drink, the first time. Awesome. It’s totally gonna be another 5 dollar Frap. 🙂
UPDATE: I just got back from watching the movie. It’s good. Just don’t watch it alone. Kinda depressing. … Actually, watch it anyways.
