Every semester in school, I keep track of my grades. I always have. So, I can tell you up to the minute what I'm getting in the class. This semester was no exception in my Anatomy and & Physiology class. The entire semester, I averaged about a 67%. I was hoping that at the end, my professor would have a little grace on me and bump me up to a "C". But I knew deep down, he wouldn't. A few days ago, I logged in online to check my grade for the class. And there it was....
My big, fat "D". Oh it wasn't even a little "d", it was big and even bolded. Blasted! Do you know when the last time I got a "D" in a class was? Jr. High! Memo: that was a long time ago, by the way! My grandmother was very strict with me and usually punished me if I got anything under a "B". So, she forced me to excel in classes.
I am a firm believer that the professor can make or break a class. This professor broke the class. But I can't blame the fact that I got a D in the class solely on him. I did study hard, but towards the end of the semester, I pretty much gave up. I would get the same grade whether I studied or not. I had a lot of personal things going on that really made it difficult to study as well. Either way, I'm mad at myself for the grade I received. Oh well, I will take it again after I get settled from moving. And it's like J said, I'll do better next time.
I have to finish up my Christmas shopping today. Nothing, like waiting till the last minute, huh? I don't normally shop last minute, but times have been tough and the money has not been there. I just have to get my roomie's present and what she wants is not difficult to find. I am housesitting for my friend Julie right now. Her house is all decked out for Christmas. There is Christmas in every room. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I was smiling to myself as I looked at all her decorations. As long as I stay away from the tree, it's a real one, I'll be fine. Because folks, I found out that I'm allergic to the real thing. I can be around it, just can't touch them.
On a side note: I love Jason Mraz and his music. One of my favorite songs right now is "I'm Yours". It's such a catchy tune and I find myself singing and tapping my foot every time I hear the song. Too bad I don't have anyone to sing it to. :P
I miss sleep. Sleep is a word that is no longer in my vocabulary.
Have a fantastic day!
