Section 13 Group #3

I think in the midst of us stressing over our exam, we briefly discussed who would be author but never came to a conclusion. Therefore here is the post.

Just to recap, we all tried to study together before the test. A special thanks to Nikki and Shania for being prepared and having flash cards as well as possible questions from other groups. It helped me out a lot! Thats pretty much all we did.

I wanted to post this picture because I think it properly depicts how EVERYONE is feeling right now. There is way too much homework to do in EVERY SINGLE CLASS. Apparently my puppy thought so too.

She must really dislike Aristotle because the whole first chapter is gone. Thanks Marci...
