What's the most annoying thing that happened to you this week?

Actually, nothing springs to mind. Mom's had some trouble with a sprained back and back spasms (but that's on the mend) and I've had a headache and felt rundown most of this week, but basically, everything's been great, so I refuse to complain.

If only this question had come along another week.

Although, if I had to pick one thing, it would be that I checked my grades. Most of them still aren't back, but Family Law was. I remember complaining for a couple of days because "there was family law on my Family Law exam!" The professor taught it with a huge emphasis on Con Law, both in terms of the cases and what he focused on. To make matters worse, I had the class at 3PM, so I was a bit unfocused. My normal strategy is to go over a couple of good commercial study guides pre-exam to shore up anything I've missed, but several classmates told me that it wouldn't help because they had already read them and they didn't focus on anything covered in class. As another classmate pointed out, we were lucky, though, because we had Constitutional Law the same semester so we basically just focused on Con Law for both subjects.

Unfortunately, exam day dawns and the Family Law exam focused on (get this) family law!!! I vaguely remembered most of the terms and questions as being something mentioned briefly in the reading or in class, but I was just pulling stuff out of thin air.

After all this, I was obviously very worried about my grade. I was thinking C at best, please not a D! I checked my grades yesterday and what did I make? A B.

On the one hand, I'm a happy camper. On the other hand, I think this just reinforced several bad behaviors.
