Thanks Tax! But instead of buying meat with that money, as I as walking though the camera isle these digital cameras were calling my name. They somehow knew my old camera was on its last leg so I made an impulse buy. I picked up a nice little point and shoot Canon.

This must be some kind of computer error... I sent her an email, and if she doesn't fix this I'm going to be so mad... It's a medical class so you need 94% for an A, and I'm already at like 96% because of the horrible wording on her assignments. I got 50% on one assignment because the questions were so vague I was answering questions about injury log records, and she was talking about exposure report forms. I guess I'm supposed to be psychic, and know what she's talking about when she just asks about documentation. She said it wouldn't be fair to the other students if she gave me the points, even though my answers were right in relation to OSHA's sharps injury log :/ Why do some teachers seem to enjoy confusing us? Isn't the point to make sure we know the material??

Aww, and on a side note I just got an email from a different teacher thanking me for my patience throughout the semester: "You are a truly great student who needs to be challenged and your academic abilities will bring you far. Regrettably, a number of your classmates were not quite prepared for a college level course, so thank you for being patient."

Cool!!
Phew, it was an error on the teachers part. That means I just need at least 85% on the final exam, and I should have an A in the class :)

I'm quite fond of my Canon point and shoot. I just need to buy a tripod for it.
