I have a midterm on Thursday evening, my first in about a quarter of a century (that sounds like a long time, doesn't it)? It's an "open note" exam, so I'm not too worried about it, but I will need to review my notes and get my "cheat sheets" in order beforehand.
Whereas in the past, I would have started my review several days, if not a week in advance, this time I'm not going to crack the books until Thursday morning. And, for geriatric students like me, there's a very good reason:
If I start to study any earlier, I won't remember anything I've reviewed by the time I get to class on Thursday evening.
There's the rub: as a mature student, my motivation and appreciation for what I'm learning is much greater than it was earlier in life. But I can't remember what I'm appreciating for very long.
That's all I had in mind to say this morning - I think.
Big announcement tomorrow.
