Default Ahh mechanical engineering

Gotta study all nite for an advanced thermo retest. Got a 44 the first time. Average was a 40. Highest grade was a 60 something by a kid that conveniently took the same test the monday afterward. Kinda bs that I got a 44 though, went to class, studied for 4 days, and did all the example problems twice... I guess I'll see how far my teacher can get from the example problems this time... Would have studied more but I was too busy wrapping up senior design and preparing for a finite element presentation. Either way I'm getting well and drunk off cheap beer tomorrow.
Sorry for the rant.
