Today was the last day of the semester and its been a crazy day!
I was right on the edge in both of my classes, Organic Chemistry 2 and Calculus 2. I figured I needed between an 88-90 on my ochem exam and a 90 on my calc 2 final. These two classes were a nightmare to take together. After my Ochem test yesterday I felt confident that I did well but I told myself, I got a B in that class. Then I came home and started studying hard for calc2. I had studied some on Sunday and Monday for this test too but it was SO much info. So many formulas and techniques to remember. At one point yesterday I threw my hands up and told John..."I am getting a B in this class...I just have to be happy with that".
But today I took that test and felt REAL good about it. I was in a great mood all day. Then at 530 I got an email from my calc2 teacher, saying I got got an 87% on my final. When I did the math and realized that I had fallen just 4 points shy of an A in the course I was pretty upset. I went from feeling so happy to so frustrated thinking if I had studied a little harder or maybe asked for help on things that gave me trouble. I was so bummed. I had worked so hard to get a B in both classes.
Well I logged on to the system...it had been down for maintenance and I decided to check if it was up...it was and look what I found...
I almost peed myself. I danced around the room and had a smile on my face for a while. I am calmed down a bit now but wow I am so happy. I love my calc teacher, she was also my teacher for pre calc...and she is so great. She is strict about her policies so I did not expect this. As for the Ochem I still don't know what my grade was on my final but it must have been good. Wow. Can't believe I pulled that off. It makes it So worth all the hard work.
Now its SUMMER> No class until late August...when I begin a year of calculus based physics. It never ends!
