Friday, October 27, 1911: Must begin to get ready for our coming examinations, which come around again next Monday and Tuesday.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
It’s interesting that Grandma was apparently worrying about upcoming exams on a Friday evening.
Based upon how she reacted during previous exam periods, I would have thought that she’d have waited until Sunday evening to get stressed. In yesterday’s entry she was struggling with L.C.M. (lowest/least common multiples) and H.C.F. (highest common factor) in algebra. Maybe she still doesn’t get them.
