I'm Gettin' me an Edumacation!

The last time anybody heard, I was involved in not one, but TWO online classes at my local community college that started last Fall and SHOULD have got done a little before Christmas, but for particular reasons, I'm still waiting to finish at least one of those classes up.

I'm actually pretty proud of myself that even through a crisis, I was able to keep a steady head and do what I can to finish those classes; even if I had to take an incomplete because I couldn't take both class's finals on time.

Now that I'm doing considerably better (thank goodness!), I was able to contact my Psychology teacher and get that test done a few days ago, to which I received a 89.3%! If you know me, you know I'm a perfectionist through and through, so A's are always, ALWAYS what I aim for and I think B's are the devil's work!

Okay, so that was a little dramatic...

We'll just say B's have always disappointed me even though it's a considerably good grade. Don't worry though, I am working on that outlook.

B's are wonderful! B's are wonderful! B's are wonderful!

Anywho, I find it great that my final grade in the General Psychology class is a 89.95%. 0.5% away from an A.

Someone is testing me here....

B's are wonderful! B's are wonderful! B's are WONDERFUL!

General Psychology is over and done with, so that's what is most important. Now, Introduction to Business on the other hand, is giving me some issues. I should actually say the TEACHER is giving me some issues! This teacher agreed back in December to give me an incomplete and allow me to take the test when I was able to. I've contacted said teacher at least 5 times within the past couple weeks and I haven't heard anything except, "I have to review your situation before we proceed."

I just want to be able to take the darn thing and get it over and done with!

These are actually the first two classes I've been able to get through fully without dropping out because of health related issues since Spring of 2010. I'm very proud that I was able to stick to them both and gain a total of 6 more credits (3 per class)!

I now have a grand total of almost 15 credits under my belt :)

Slowly but surely people, slowly but surely.

First of all I'm so very proud of you. Girlfriend, B's are fantastic! Dang, I never got a B when I was in high school for pity sakes. As far as that teacher go over that B's head & find out what's up! You shouldn't have to wait this long. Give me their number I'll give them what for. Sheesh! Yes, that's what I would do go over her head, but that's me. Congrats girl you're doing GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREAT!

A's are always the main goal, but B's are super too.
