Just in Time

Have you heard of the "just in time" practice of moving goods only when they're needed instead of spending money on storage? I think I've adopted a "just in time" study habit. I finished my essay en espanol 5 minutes before class. In now have to complete my second Humanities essay (due tomorrow). That means I'll be writing my speech to be delivered in Spanish (due Wednesday) tomorrow afternoon. The plan is to do it in time to practice with the tutors. I am allowed notes, but cannot read word for word from a paper.
I got my grades from my first two tests...92 in Spanish and 99 in Biology! Woo hoo!!!! Did you know we have to buy our own Scantron forms?
I have also confirmed with my Biology professor that studying does indeed burn calories. I made a comment to one of my classmates that it makes me hungry and I've been cooking or baking during study breaks. Her response was that the brain burns on average 20 percent of our caloric intake. It stands to reason that when you use it more, it burns more. I can still have faith in my theory that if I eat every time I'm hungry, and only when I'm hungry, I will not become obese (not to be confused with the few extra pounds I sometimes carry).
