This is a test….this is only a test…

I have to make a post to tell you all about the test I took today.  I am currently taking a class on fish, and we had to learn the scientific names of about 70 species.  That is a lot!  It might sound hard to learn, and a hassle.  To some extent it was–but the fish are all pretty tropical fish, so it was not so bad.  The really awesome part was the test though.  It was set up like a typical lab practical, with fish in clear buckets at a number of stations which we rotated through.  The key part was that these stations were on the sand flat of the coral reef, and we snorkled around to look at them on the bottom of the sand in about five feet of water.  I have to say, if you have to take a test, its great to take one under the water.  Now if only my mask wasn’t leaky…

  1. But Adam, how did you keep your paper from getting wet while you were snorkling in five feet of water??*

    *No, I’m really not that stupid, but go check your e-mail in case you haven’t already.

  2. I’d say very few folks have ever taken a test that way!! What to do about your leaky mask?
