Environmental Science A
GD Internship PA
Somebody tell me how the fuck I pulled off an A in Foundation Portfolio? Huh? HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? There was a bit of a fiasco involving that class that I didn’t mention here because… Well, because it was embarrassing. I turned my portfolio in only half done. You just don’t do that. I had the whole term to finish it, and yet I turned it in unfinished and had to present it to the class like that. One of the most embarrassing things I’ve ever done, I’d say. And I still got an A. I even turned in my package design late (on Friday, the class was on Wednesday) without my branded resume. Sometimes this school frustrates me – I deserved a C at best, if she was being generous. I’m not saying I’d like it changed, but I don’t understand how this stuff continues to happen to me.
And of all classes to break my straight As, Psychology did me in. It was that essay, the one I did at 4am that I got a B on. I think I did well on everything else. (You’ll notice here that my definition of “well” is probably a bit different from your own, and that’s okay. I know I’m weird.)
The internship class was Pass/Fail, so I knew I was going to pass. I must have done well on the final in E. Science to pull my grade up to an A, since I got a C on the midterm… Though all my other assignments were As, I think, so that helped too I’m sure.
Seriously though, what is up with the A in FP? I really honestly thought I was going to get a C at best. I was betting on a D. I deserved that D. At least I felt like I did. I don’t ever want to think about that class again.
