Mellow Monday

So a few weeks ago I took my first math exam and failed miserably with a pathetic 56%.  My math professor looks over our work and will sometimes give us credit for an answer even if the online program doesn't.  She hadn't posted my grade yet and I kept wondering what was up with that.  Friday afternoon, I checked again and she raised it up to 69%!!!  Still failing, but I'm still excited because it's one point away from a C-!  I'm really behind but I'm going to try to catch up more over Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving was never my favorite holiday anyways but I'm really not looking forward to it this year.  This will be the first big holiday since my father died and it just won't be the same without him.  I'm half way betting my oldest bro will come visit and he and I DO NOT get along.  I suffered through his visit when he came for the services because I had to but I also avoided him as much as possible.

While I'm not looking forward to the holiday, I AM looking forward to Thanksgiving week because I have the whole week off from school!!!  It'll be sooooooo nice to have some time off.  Once the week is over, it's back to the grindstone hardcore because there's only a few weeks left of school so I need to focus on finals.  I'm just praying that the week off won't be like spring break where every professor gave a big assignment to work on over the week.  Either way, part of next week will be devoted to trying to get my chi's to cooperate so that I can get their pix for my Shutterfly Christmas card.  I don't know how long they take from the date of order to shipping them out but hopefully I'll get them in time to use this year.
I'm really looking forward to this!  It's only $10 maximum before shipping, I think I can swing that.  You still have time to join in -- it's open until November 28th and everyone will get their swap partners on the 30th.

Several of you asked what I named my new betta fish.  I wanted him to have an "O" name for some unknown reason and couldn't decide between Otto or Ollie.  So he gets both!  His name is OllieOtto but I call him Ollie.  I ran it by him and he didn't seem to mind that he has a dumb name.  He just fanned his beautiful fins out.

9 showed me some love:

69%%% So close! I struggle in math to so I would be perfectly happy with a 69%!!!
Love your beta fishes name!!

Finn said...

Ollie is an excellent name! And I am so happy that your math grade went up. How is that anthropology proect coming along??

Cara said...

Aw, I am sorry you are having a bad day. Sending you hugs across the miles!

Math was never my favorite subject either. I think a lot of it is psychological - I didn't do well because I didn't like it, etc. I am glad your grade was raised!

OllieOtto is a super cute name!

That swap sounds like fun. I sure hope you enjoy your WHOLE week off. :)

Melissa said...

I'm happy you're doing a bit better in Math. I was never very good at it either so I understand.

And your first big holiday without your Dad will be hard. I remember my first Christmas without my grandmother (who helped raised me and was like a second mother) and it was rough. It gets easier, I promise.

The math grade was not bad...I feel for you having Thanksgiving without your Dad...maybe you and your brother will learn to get along??
Great O name:)
