It is just about 8:00 here on the East Coast. I am sitting in the library doing my final preparations for my Calculus final that is from 3-6:00 this afternoon. My last bit of work for this, my second semester at VTC. As I go into this final my average is a 71. Not too great. If my average had been a 75 I would have been guaranteed a passing grade in this class. Now I need to score at least a 20% on my final. Oh you might think 20% should be no problem. I hope I am up to the task. I have put many hours into this class over the course of the semester. More than my other 4 classes combined. Okay maybe not but the proportion is close to that. To work so hard and to have so little to show for my effort is disheartening. I certainly will not be satisfied if I get a 20% on this exam. I don't want to get a D- in this class or any other class. I could still get a C+ if I do okay on this final. But right now all I really care about is passing the class. As some of my classmates are quick to point out "D is for diploma."
See you on the other side of this exam.
BRING ON THE FINAL!!!!!!!
