Final grades are all in. Two As and two Bs. Not what I hoped for, but about what I expected. Actually, if we can be honest here, I expected to do much worse than a B in German, considering just how much I slacked off after midterm. Actually, I slacked off pretty freakin’ badly in all my classes after midterm. Half of my SW lectures were slept-through or missed altogether, and I generally skipped Micro when I missed SW. Didn’t finish required reading in Ecology. So I should be very satisfied with what I got, and extremely frustrated at how much I didn’t do in order to get those marks.
I could be a better person if I just tried at it.
So now all I have to worry about are the holidays. I’m still trying to figure out what all I need to pack. It’s sort of strange that the less I have to pack, the more confused and flustered I get with it… constantly feeling as if I’m forgetting something.
Clothes? Check. Chargers? Check. Tits? Double-check.
I just hope some of the drama simmers down for the holidays. The forum for which I serve as an admin has had two punches over the last few, one very recently in the way of an article filled with copious amounts of misinformation and flat-out ignorance that directly quoted from us out of context, so I’ve been lurking pretty heavily and trying to put my best-face-forward on that front. It’s all fun and cupcakes til you realize there are people out there who derive some perverse sense of joy from belittling a peaceful spiritual community.
I’d wager these are folk who try and pretend they didn’t see the Salvation Army bell-ringers when they walk out of a store. Or worse, pretend they can’t afford to spare a dollar when they’re carrying out $500 in merch for their ungrateful brat-children.
And finally, how wrong is it that 800 miles of latitude separates two temperature ranges by 50F? Words cannot describe the frustration.
