    This Semester is Fucking Hard

    I’m not gonna lie. I’m struggling this semester and we’ve barely started. I managed a B on my second math quiz and a B average over the homework we’ve done so far this semester, but I’m really struggling and am going to see about tutoring in The Learning Center this week. There’s no way I will do well on the first exam without a lot of help, which of course I waited too long to get.

    In Spanish 102, I’m also struggling a bit, and it doesn’t help that this will be the 4th week of class, asked only the first week I’ve attended. Thankfully my instructor is really understanding but it’s frustrating to see how ill-equipped I am in this class.

    A&P II I have a lab practical tomorrow, which I suspect I also will not do well on. This semester has not been off to a good start in really any way.

    My car is still in the shop, after I ruptured a brake line Friday night and lost my brakes (thankfully while in a parking lot) so my mom has taken Monday off from work to drive me to class. Because we have three lab exam, I should be done by 230pm at the latest, instead of the usual 4pm. And maybe after we leave campus, we can go to lunch. This week is going to be trying.

    The good thing is right now I have a decent B in both math and Spanish.

    Panic in the Math Room

    Yesterday my math instructor emailed me to remind me that done assignments in which I needed to score at least 80% on were due by midnight tonight. I couldn’t remember seeing anything about a due date this weekend, and of course I panicked.

    But the good thing is I fixed most of my wrong answers on the review, plus got the first homework assignment completed of 3 that are due next weekend.

    I have Spanish homework to finish this afternoon, and then I’m planning on knocking out the next math assignment. Tomorrow I’ll work on the A&P II homework.

    I Killed It!

    Winter session is over and I fucking killed it.

    I took two classes that are normally taught over 15 weeks, crammed them into 5 weeks, and came out with an A and a B.

    The thing that was going to make our break my Poli-sci grade was the video assignment we had to do. It was worth 150 points, and we had to get 15 minutes of interview time with a person or people with questions that tied into a podcast we had to watch.

    I came up with 4 or 5 questions, which were heavily judged by people on Rav as being all wrong and interviewed two friends. We recorded the videos, I edited them into a longer video with my thoughts and ideas, and I had about 20 minutes total play time.

    You guys, he gave me 145/150 on it! I was not expecting to do anywhere near that will and it gave me a solid B in the class!

    Winter Session is Just About Done

    I’m done with my Nutrition class, and even if I only get a 75 including the extra credit on the final, I’ll still get an A in the class. So that’s awesome. I’m super happy about that, and it was a great class.

    I made this for my instructor as well and she loved it.

    Poli-sci…. I wish I could be so confident but I’m most likely getting a C. I’ve got an 80.49% right now, the last week’s work still has to be done, and unless I do really well on both the final and the video assignment, there’s not even a chance of getting a B. But a C is passing so I mean if that’s what it comes down to, I’ll take it.

    Planning on knocking out a few of the assignments tonight so I have less to do last minute.

    I also went to the bookstore today and got my books for spring, which starts on Monday, my parking permit has been ordered, and my paperwork from disabled student services is ready to distribute to my instructors.

    I’m tired. I walked all over campus to get things done and while yay! It’s all done, my legs are sore from all the extra hills.

    Halfway There

    The Winter session is halfway over. I did my Nutrition midterm last night, and will do my Intro to American Government midterm tonight.

    Before the midterm, I had a 103% in Nutrition, and though everything isn’t graded yet for Poli-Sci, I have about an 85%. Unless something changes dramatically, I’m expecting my grades to hold steady all the way through the rest of the session.

    I still haven’t received anything from the Department of Rehab, but hoping the checks come in soon because the session is nearly over. I also need to put in for the Spring semester as well, since that will follow the Winter session pretty closely.

    I still have no idea what is or was going on with my regular counselor, or if I should submit my requests to her or to the new counselor who is taking care of my Winter requests. I’ll have to email her and ask who I need to direct things to.

    A Fucking Rockstar. Yup. That’s Me.

    All my final grades for the Fall 2019 semester have been posted and I did better than I thought I would across the board.

    A&P I – C

    Women in US History – A

    Beginning Algebra – A

    Elementary Spanish I – B

    I’ve added a page to the menu where you can follow my classes and my progress towards my degree. Obviously it won’t get updated often, but you can see my grades as they are finalized.

    In Winter I’m taking two of my general education requirements, and in spring I will be taking more math, A&P II, and the next Spanish class.
