I took my first final of the semester yesterday.
Especially whew because, um, I thought my exam was three hours and found out as the proctor was telling us the exam instructions that, no, it was in fact a four hour test. That’s a nice(?) surprise. Thanks to the parking gods for not giving me a ticket even though I only paid for three hours of parking, not four.
Since my first final was yesterday, my first test ritual of the semester also occurred yesterday. Test rituals are weird. But everyone totally has one. And they’re all totally psycho (in the best way promise).
Let’s just state the obvious and get that out of the way. I love science. And learning.

But, man, it didn’t matter to me. There was never and still isn’t anything that tops going to the Ballpark in Arlington and watching a baseball game with my daddy. I love the Rangers’ organization with all my heart, and my love has only intensified over the years.
When they started to win, man, did I feel validated.
And when they lost the World Series two years in a row, man, did I feel crushed.
