(If you think this is bad…these are only books for two of my five midterms.)
When I checked the syllabi for my classes at the beginning of the semester, I noticed that March 12 came up a couple times. Strangely, March 11 also seemed to be a recurring date, and hey… I swear I marked something down on Thursday, March 6! Why were these days so close together?! It didn’t really register with me at the time.
Two months, later, I was faced with the prospect of taking five midterms in the period between Thursday, March 6 and Tuesday, March 12.
