Just checked the website and the scores were posted for the Final Exam I took today. I was sure I was in the “A” category, but not positive. I am not above making a read-back error (although I will strive to never do that in my professional career).

I worked real hard for this. Just like all my classmates. The mood was serious and intense. We were all first-course nervous.

The professor posted a message saying a few of the questions were reviewed and modified for accuracy. You may have an additional point or two on your score.

Click over to the grade section…yes! Official! I am now solidly in “A” territory! What a boost for the next semester! Longer and harder I hear. More intense. We’ll be getting right into the good stuff. I have to keep up!

Thank you, all, again, for the suh-port! It helps when you know you have people out there pulling for you!

Thank you professor! Now I can say how awesome she was without sounding like I am sucking up.

Good luck fellow students! If any of them might happen to ever stumble upon this: I hope you are just as happy as I am!

I feel like I took a marshmallow pill or something. I’m getting all soft and gooey.

Drink time! I’ll make it a beer. We only have one in the house so it will be a short celebration, but it’s all mine!

I’m going to go outside, fill up the bird feeder, take a seat, watch the wildlife and soak it all in enjoying the moment. Talk later.

NOW, I can relax! At least for a few weeks…

It is Tuesday. It was my last class for the summer. Final Exam. I stayed up too late on Sunday. Felt like the flu on Monday. My head and body was aching. I felt feverish. Managed to sleep a few more hours last night and go over as much of the material as possible this morning. Wouldn’t have missed today for anything.

Unofficially, I should have an A for the class. Just barely, but it counts. I missed the required amount to keep me above the A-line. I wish I had missed less. I even changed an answer from the right one to the wrong one! DUH. I hate that.

FYI for the future: Usually your first answer is the correct answer.

If I’ve learned anything in these last 3 years it’s to not second guess yourself. And yet, I did. We are not immune.

Anyway, I will keep it in mind for the next semester. 5 weeks, 5 days and counting.

Thanks to all who encouraged and supported me on the first run. Stay with me! I’m going to need you as the long, cold winter sets in!

Next up Warrior Dash! Should seem like a piece of cake–running and jumping–I don’t even have to win!

Now let’s go have some FUN!
