I had my abnormal psych midterm last week. This one involved short answer and fill in the blank along with the usual bubbles. I was feeling pretty good about it when I handed it in. I checked the multiple choices that I wasn't quite sure if I got right against my notes, and I did get them right! Then I realized I goobered cyclothemia in the short answer section and lost three points there. Bloody hell. It was a stupid stupid mistake too, which just annoys me all the more.
Now I have to write a paper. It's kind of bizarre. It's not an essay, requires no research and she doesn't want it written in third person. And yet, I am supposed to come up with 7 pages answering three questions on why some woman was misdiagnosed with schizophrenia in the 70's. It's worth 20%.
