It’s finals time. Yes, I know I’ve already finished two classes, but those were two in which I could give presentations in lieu of finals. So I still have three finals to go.
A friend and I were talking yesterday. She says she has to have finals, as per school rules. So she has them to her house. One class, on mythology, watched an early-bootlegged copy of 300 and ate fajitas. One class is coming over for homemade pizza.
Why do we have finals? Dr. Crazy asks that question on her blog, Reassigned Time. I don’t know the answer.
Can someone remind me why we have finals? Is it because we are modeled on the British system which ONLY has a final? That makes more sense, although I don’t like that system either. Made a B in the only course I ever took like that, studied like crazy, wrote six hours for a two-hour course, and still only made a B. I bet that is why we have finals though. And I don’t think they are very useful.
