Anyway, further to the title, I think it's about time we get the air purified in here. I'm speaking of my place of employment. Every five or ten minutes, someone sneezes. And I know I hardly sneeze except for when I'm here (which is a huge majority of my waking hours), and everyone else says the same. So, all I have to say is...
What's up with that?
Well, for most of us, it's almost time to celebrate the long weekend. Woo hoo! I appreciate my time off even more so now that I've taken on 9 credit hours while still working 40 hours a week. Gotta love being a glutton for punishment. Well, I can justify it by wanting to get done faster so I can get ON with my life and career! So there.
Well, everyone, or one, have a fantastic friggin' weekend. It looks like it's supposed to be pretty nice out, so get some schunschine, dammit!

Lots to do today. Photos, dresser drawers, room cleaning and possible rearranging, etc., etc., etc. It sounded a lot better the first time I tried to convey it.
Screw you. No, not you. The blog people. Or the pod people.

Well, today I took my second to last exam in U.S. Politics, and I got a B-. Now, for that class, I'm betting that's good. But if I don't ace the next exam, I will get a B in the class overall. And, consequently, marr my 4.0. Remind me NOT to take such an involved class in the summer.
I don't know if it's just me, but I just do not remember some of the question he asks on these tests. I write down pretty much everything the man says, but still, there are things of which I have no recollection.
So, on this test, I missed 13 out of 60, resulting in a B-. That brought my grade so far to about 87%. I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to bring that up to an A if I don't do well again on my next exam, which is the final one next Friday. We'll see.
And it's not even the B that bugs me so much. It's the fact that I worked really hard and still couldn't achieve the A. Maybe it's a lesson in humility and learning that I can't succeed at everything.
I'm welcoming the break after next week, though. I'll have about two or three weeks before the fall semester starts. I'm also welcoming the return to some sense of normalcy in the fact that my classes will be twice a week rather than everyday. This everyday for two hours in the morning has been intense, especially with all of the information he feels the need to cram in. It's insanity, if you ask me. You have to LOVE politics to absorb everything in the lectures.
Ah well, other than that, things are going well. I must stay positive, according to my friend, jb. I'm so thankful for her every single day. She reminds me, even when it's the last thing I want to hear, that positive thinking brings about positive things. These days I don't have much faith in that fact, but I'm hoping her reiterations will make it stick in my brain.
So, that's about it. Stressing over my potentially marred 4.0 and such.
I say this everytime, but I'll try to update this a bit more than every six months. Even if it's only for my own sanity.
