I am having a kick-butt school day today. I wrote my last Astronomy test, and then I realized that the number that I had gotten for my mid-term exam wasn't a percentage, it was the raw score. I went from being a very confused girl with a C- to a happy camper with a B in the blink of an eye! Then I got the results of the final test back, and I got a perfect score! So, my grade for the 10 weekly tests - 95% (40% of overall), midterm - 75% (25% of overall)(I know - the monkey was malfunctioning when I studied), so my final exam is 35% of the overall mark, and as I currently have 57, I could still end up with an A+ in the course (study monkey, study!).

I also received the results back from my Critical Nationalism exam. I really struggled getting that essay down, it was a 2 hour exam and I spent the first hour just organizing my thoughts - curses to all professors who schedule exams at 8am on Friday! Brevity cost me, I received a B. Again, I can still salvage the mark with the final essay, I'll find out tomorrow if my topic was accepted, then it's due on the 2nd of December *eep*

I am still debating continuing classes in January. This term has really kicked my butt, and it is only going to get worse with IVF and a possible federal election in January. It is really tempting to walk away with just one credit this year, and coast for the winter term, but I am really enjoying the Astronomy, and I think I've finally gotten the hang of the Cnd Studies classes. Weigh that against increasing job pressure, possibly being pregnant, and if not pregnant a hormonal mess for a month or so and I really don't know what to do. Luckily I can start the term in January and decide within the first month. Christmas break never looked so good. I miss watching movies, pleasure reading and having free time!

Sheesh - I'll stop talking now, I was feeling good about school!
Who does she think she is?

Hey-Hey! Congratulations! That is a great grade. How totally awsome. All you hard work has paid off. I don't think that a B in your Critical Nationalism is bad...heck-that is a great grade-why aren't you so happy? I would be flippen happy. Hell-I'd be happy with a C. I think you should just plunge into next semester. Why take a break? You are doing so well. I know it's tough, but in the long run... it will all be worth it. Again-*Congratulations!*

See, that's just the kinda advice I need *g*

I'm sure I will go back, I just tend to get so tired near the end of classes that I feel like I *never* want to go back again!

Yay for the grades. When we go back to nola I think I'm going to take the last two classes to get the legal secretary certificate on top of the administrative secretary degree. There always seems to be tons of jobs open for it, and I'm not as burned out as I was.

The certificate sounds like a good idea,anything to broaden your job pool! How long will the extra classes take?
