Grades are in! So even after catastrophic bomb-ola on portions of my final exams, I got B's and a B minus - YAY!!!

B in biology, B (god only knows what the curve must have been...) in molecular bio, B in Japanese history (again, by an act of divine providence which we shall not examine too closely), and a B- in biostatistics.

Ta da! Yay! All things considered, this is pretty damn good. I was hoping that if the fates were especially kind, I *might* squeak out B's in molecular and Japanese - and apparently Atropos didn't have it in for me this semester.

This means hope is not lost for declaring a field of study in bio, that I am maybe still eligible for applying for special student status - all kindsa good. That stuff's dependent on a reasonable grade point average, which I have not totally wrecked. Not yet, anyway.

Um, if I start muttering about registering for another history course, will someone please either shoot me with a tranquilizer dart or talk me down, until that particular madness subsides? I do like studying the sweep of human events, of course; I just can't bring myself to give a crap about names and dates. Sort of important when you're taking history. Go figure.

All B's is definitely good. In vet school the mantra was "C = DVM" (though I think most of us did consistently better than that).

I generally have the same problem with history. I like the stories and the overall scope, but trying to get me to remember who did what to or with whom when just doesn't work.

Hooray! Congrats on the good grades!

I find that I best enjoy studying history by reading about it. Lectures are great, but often are accompanied by pesky things like tests and papers. :)

Gimme and L!... Yaaaaay, Liz!

If you feel an urge to study the sweep of human events, you can always read a book or three. I recommend 1066 and All That.
