Midterm

My midterm got pushed back.  I’m really stressed out about this one so I don’t know if this is a good thing or not.  On one hand I just want to get the thing over with so I can know how bad I did.  On the other hand it will be nice to have another weekend to sort of focus all my studying on it. 

Lucky for me, I got another good score on my quiz.  I was surprised to see a 9.5 out of 10 on this one.  The class average was up as well.  Hopefully people just get this section.  I know I understand syntax better than pragmatics and semantics. 

This weekend will be piled deep with studying for the midterm and reading material for the formal project.  Hopefully by the time I’m done I understand more of it all.  Don’t worry.  I’m not holding my breath. 

I think I could like linguistics if I understood more of it.  I find the topic fascinating but at the same time part of it I think is just a lot of guessing and making general statements about things that don’t fit nicely into a tidy little box.
