I suck.

 

Gah. Sorry for the drama queen syndrome. I just got the results of my last math exam and I sucked, and it pulled my GPA down and I'm really really depressed over it. So, yeah. I got a little intense with the poor me and thus we have suckage.

:P Por que?

Ugh. I hate when that happens. I'm the worst about berating myself too (I still randomly beat myself up for stupid social faux pas from over a decade ago!) but you know what? The suckage will pass. You might suck now, but it's incidental suck. Not inherent.

 

Math profs are pretty hard to argue with (I could at least get partial credit from the physics instructors for doing the work, even if the end result was all wrong) but maybe there's something you can do to bring your score up a bit? Extra credit work or, I dunno... hm. Has the class gone over the test? Sometimes the more statistically oriented instructors will at least give back points for questions that everybody got wrong (as this is an indication that the teacher failed rather than the students).

 

Eh. Yeah, I know, I'm reaching a bit. But again, incidental suck. This too shall pass.

Well, there is still the final exam. We'll go over the test on monday, but I just feel... like, how did I blow that so badly? I worked really hard to learn it, and I felt confident except for two things... apparently those last two problems were weighted pretty heavily. Dude. I don't know how wide and long the path that Jack built around the patio is. Where the hell was that problem in the homework? Arrgh. Anyway. The other one I really should have known. My brain just wouldn't work, for whatever reason.

 

The final is, of course, comprehensive. However, if all of our online exams are above 90% (which all of mine are), he'll add 5% to the score. Not only that, but the final won't bring our grade down; it'll only factor in if it improves our grades, AND... If it is higher than any of our tests, the score will replace the lower scores. It's a pretty sweet deal. I'm just wondering if I can actually pull a decent score. I do know that come monday and tuesday, I'm going to be spending some quality time in the tutor center.

 

I WANT a 3.5 from this class, because I want to know it that well. Does that make sense? I feel so all over the place.
