3 A's and 1 B

Whew... time flies when you are having fun! My semester if finally over. I received my report card (do they even call it that in college) and I earned 3 A's and 1 B. The B was in my writing class and I was very happy with that grade. I was thinking I would get a C or worse... YIKES!! In my math class I earned an A. This was the class I was most afraid of and it was the class I did the best in. I can't beleive how much I love math. I am really proud of myself for going back to school and doing well. I had a lot of stress these last couple of months, but through all of it I kept my priorities in order.

So a little bit of an update on the other "kids" in the class. Most of the semester they talked and disrupted class, but we had a really good teacher and she didn't put up with it. She would embarass them in class asking them what they are talking about. She even had a talk with all of them after class ond day letting them know she will kick them out of the class if they act up again. I never heard even a peep from them after that. One of the girls in this bunch even came to all of the study groups, but she had a really negative attitude. She was always complaining that she hated math and yelling that she doesn't need math for her major. She did horriable on her tests and never did the homework. Once the teacher threatned to throw them out of class she moved her seat up to the front of the room and all of the sudden started doing good. I was impressed.... and come to find out she has to take CALC 3 for her major... lol... I hope I dont need that for mine.

So now that I am on my winter break I am going to relax a bit. I took a week off of work as well during this time.... I've been staying up all night reading and watching T.V and sleeping all day... living the dream....

Congrats on your grades, I am very proud of you! The good thing about going back to school at 31 and not right out of high school, is you WANT to be there. It will be much more worth your time now that you are really ready for it!!

Good Job.

I am so proud of you too. It's not easy going back but sometimes, being driven is the key to success. You're going to look back at this time with great satisfaction that you accomplished so much. Hugs to you sweetie.
