Half Full Friday!

Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eyegirl originally started in June 2009.  We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us.  So by participating, I'm deciding to see the glass as half full instead of half empty; I'm choosing to concentrate on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives.  The Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that.  They're a list of the things in my life that have brought me happiness over the past week.  I'm determined to find something good in each day.  Are you?

For the next week, I'd like to challenge each of you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.  Be sure to link up here once you've posted your list!  (This isn't a blog hop so please only link up if you've participated by posting your happy list.  Thanks!)

It's FRIDAY!!!

I saw a rainbow on Monday!  Didn't see the rain, just the rainbow.

I had fun at Art in the Park!

I got some cotton candy!

We had slightly cooler weather yesterday!

I attended a class to learn some better study skills!

I won't have to take my first math exam when everyone else does!

I flirted with a cute classmate on Wednesday!  It's been awhile so I didn't even realize until after the fact that we were flirting and that the guy was the one who initiated it.

My math professor suggested earlier this week that anyone who was struggling could potentially move into an easier class and to just email her for more info.  So of course I emailed right away.  She told me to go talk to some guy who I guess is the head honcho over the math department.  I went to the his office yesterday to ask about switching over and he checked my stats.  He immediately told me that I didn't want to switch and I immediately told him that yes, I did!  I explained that I never took the assessment test like I was supposed to and just chose that particular math course out of the ones being offered.  Apparently, since the class isn't for credit, I didn't actually have to take the placement test yet. 

He explained that he really didn't want to move me just yet because of the progress I've made so far.  I told him I didn't feel like I was making any progress at all and that I was just struggling along.  But then he told me that as far as progress goes, I'm in the top 20-25% in the class.  If I continue along the way I've been going, I have a strong chance of passing the class and moving up to the next one.  However, I won't be ready for the first test in time because I still have too much to learn.  Basically, I'm finally at the starting point where everyone else in the class was at when they tested in for placement.  If I'm still doing poorly after the first exam, then he'll consider moving me.

At first I was kind of pissed that he wouldn't move me.  But after thinking about it for awhile, I felt a little better.  It's nice to know that someone thinks I'm progressing, even if I don't really see it myself.  The guy was really nice, at least.

Happy Friday sprinkles. :)

I wasn't a huge fan of math in school, and I'm glad I don't have to deal with math classes again.. they frustrated me to no end!

angelonwheels said...

Very happy things are improving for you! I love to flirt as well lol

Velvet Over Steel said...

It sounds like the 'head' math guy really cares. That's always a good sign!

Very cool about the guy in class. I'm terrible at flirting. I always kick myself later, thinking I said something dumb. Haha.. You'll have to keep us updated.. ;-)

Have a wonderful weekend!!
Hugs,
Coreen XO

I'm sort of impressed the math dude kept pushing you--it's likely he sees something in you that maybe you don't. Faith from a stranger is always a good thing. Glad you had that kind of week!
