School update, just in case you were wondering  
Today is the last day of class for my first semester back. I thought I'd be excited but I'm feeling melancholy. Isn't that strange? I guess being done with my first semester is bitter-sweet.

We had our math final yesterday. You can imagine (if you've read any of my other posts on how much I hate/dread math) that I was a nervous wreck. Well, to my never-ending surprise, I made an 82!!! Wow! I wasn't even the last one to leave this time. It was 60 multiple choice questions which made it a little easier. We had 2 hours to take it. One guy left after an hour. I couldn't believe it! That means he answered one question per minute. (See - math!) How is that even possible?

According to our on-line gradebook, my overall average in math is 89.9. OMG. Really? I am one tenth of a point from a 90 which would be an A? I don't know if my instructor can or will curve it up. I'd rather be 6 points away from an A than .1 point!

I'll keep you posted, in case you are interested. Or you know, even if you're not.

And thanks to everyone who helped me survive Algebra and Trigonometry this semester!! I couldn't have done it without you!

Thank you! I can't believe my first semester is basically over!! It's been interesting!

yeah, that's basically an A, I hope they give it to you! :D i'd give you an A ;) .

Well done! fantastic result! :D

Right? It's almost an A!!! I don't know if my instruction can give me an A because it's an electronic grade book. Man I wish I had that extra .1!!

Thank you for the imaginary A. I appreciate it!!!

:-)

all electronic, eh? :-/ well, maybe they programmed in that the electronic grade book should round up at a certain point? -_-

but still, you know you got an A really ;)

I'm going with that!! Official grades should be posted Monday. I'll know by then, I guess!

I'll keep you posted.

That's terrific! Seems like you are a lot better at math than you realized! I will forever think of you as the "A" person. \o/

Congratulations for making it through the semester! Now relax a little. You deserve it! ::Huggles::

Apparently I'm not completely hopeless in math! Who knew?

I am relaxing now! I'm really tired for some reason. Maybe it's just the relief of knowing the semester is over. One down, XXX to go?

Thanks!!!

It means you've been enjoying yourself, even if you think you're not good at maths. Yay for you! I'm assuming that is out of 100? (American schooling throws me a little, I'm afraid) That is a wonderful result, and I hope your teacher can help get you that 0.1 point!

I think you're right. It's bittersweet because I did enjoy my first semester back!

Yes, it's out of 100. It's a ten-point scale, so 90 and above is an A, 80-89 a B, etc.

The last time I checked, my grade was 90.3 - the final test grade substituted for our lowest grade through the semester. So I may actually have an A. I won't know for sure until official grades are posted Tuesday! And you know I'll post my final grade here!

Thanks for the insight!!
