Dear Online Classes: You Are Evil. Love, Anne

Well… the exam was kind of a debacle. At least it’s over? (I hope… unless I have to take the stupid class again… which would be lame since I got A’s in all 7 of my other prereqs!). The worst part is now I have to play the waiting game — unfortunately I won’t find out for a week or so how I did… ugh. Crossing fingers and hoping by some miracle (or by a huge curve) I pull off a passing grade. Hardest test EVER. But thank you so much for all your sweet good luck wishes :)

After doing what any mature 27 year old does in such a situation (called my mom in tears), I pulled myself together and enjoyed the rest of my day :)

First stop — lunch with my friend Michelle!


Yay! Michelle is my friend from my Microbiology class this summer and I heart her. She lives with her husband and kids (yes, kids — she has 3! doesn’t she look young??) down south where our class was, so since I took my final exam down there today, it was perfect to meet up one last time before I leave!

We met at Wegmans — yum!! I hit up their salad bar and got all sorts of fun stuff:



I got some lettuce & spinach and topped it with all sorts of bean salads, a tabouli salad, some curried tofu, green beans, broccoli and who knows what else :)

With a side of fruit!


Ah, watermelon. Why must you be so tasty and so heavy and expensive at salad bars?

After lunch, I FINALLY went and got my hair cut (my head feels 13908203948 times lighter), and then I picked up a copy of this awesome book ;)


I’m hoping I can get the author to sign it for me next weekend ;)

And now I’m off again! Matt’s company is having a cocktail party thingy tonight — perfect timing to show off my nice straight hair!

Have a great night!

p.s. — Have you guys tried the new Carrot Cake Larabar yet?! I had it today and it was AMAZING. I think it’s my new fave!

    The waiting game really stinks! On a positive note – I’m glad you still enjoyed the rest of your day. More often than not, I don’t have that ability. I’m working on it though. :)

  2. 2

    Glad to hear it’s done; I’ll cross my fingers for ya!

  3. 3

    your hair looks fabulous! i bet you’ll end up doing better than you think…you’re so smart! have fun this weekend and celebrate :)

  4. 4

    I hope you passed! Fingers crossed!

  5. 5

    Oh, man. I’ve done that phone call once or twice myself, no shame. Glad it’s over!!

    Countdown until I see you: one week! WHOOP!

    have fun at the cocktail-fiesta-thing ;)

  6. 6

    Aww, well at least its over right!

    Mm, Wegmans does have one fine salad bar. Maybe not Whole Foods, but close enough.

    Love the hair! You look great Anne!

    And I’m still on the look out for carrot cake Larabar. I’ve been hearing its awesome.

    I’m going to be taking the RD classes these next few years (biochem, organic chem, anatomy, etc) and you’re making me a little scared! I definitely consider myself a science lover, but if a sharp girl like you struggled, then it’s entirely possible that I will too… Here’s hoping that everything turns out all right!

      Don’t be scared! My other classes (including Organic Chem) were all totally manageable with some dedication/studying time. And BioChem would have been if it had been in person and I hadn’t tried to cram it in with everything else I had going on! My own fault. Oh well…

      Good luck to you! :)

  8. 9

    Sending positive (passing) vibes your way! :)

  9. 10

    You are always so upbeat and cute! I love your blog!

    Love the haircut!
    I’m sending positive exam-passing vibes your way, but in the meantime I’m always a big fan of just pretending it doesn’t exist. There’s nothing you can do about it so don’t waste your time stressing, go out and have some fun!

      Love this comment – pretending it doesn’t exist is definitely my approach right now, ha! You are wise, my friend :) No point stressing until I know!

  11. 13

    Don’t stress about the exam- it’s over now! No point stressing :) Haircut looks great, obvi ;)

  12. 14

    I’m betting that you passed! Go out and enjoy your Saturday night. You earned it! And love the “do,” too!

    Michelle Heikell says:

    All of the above. No point in worrying about it, stress just makes you sick. Besides, I think you probably passed too. I love your hair! Did you just cut and style it or did you get it straightened? Looks like you had fun last night, good for you! It was so good to see you too. I will miss you but you haven’t seen the last of me :) Enjoy your next few weeks of no homework.

  14. 17

    Your hair looks lovely! And I know…waiting can be no fun. I’m sure you did great, though!!

  15. 18

    Your hair looks great! You should be proud of the work that you did for your exam!

  16. 19

    I just got the Carrot Cake larabar today! Glad to hear its good!


  1. […] I took BioChem online this summer while I had way too much else going on, and our only grade was the massively hard final exam — I was very worried I didn’t pass, which would have been really bad since it’s a requirement […]
