I did what?!?!

Friday, December 20, 2013

I have been freaking out about this semester and my grades. Per the agreement with my scholarship people I have to make "C's" or better in all classes. I was freaking out, cause I put off doing my biology class until the very week before finals... Not one of my best ideas, but it happened.

The teachers have until Monday, 12/16 to post the grades. I'm checking my grades every hour that day and would stress out more, with not seeing a grade for my biology class. It's 30 minutes before I have to close and ask my friend & co-worker to pull my unofficial transcript to do a GPA check. He pulls the report...

He looks over the classes and then says, "Wow, you did good this term." I just look at him and say, "Ya, I worked my bum off to make good grades in 3 classes, but the 4th I don't know about." He tells me, "No, you did really good this semester in all your classes." ((Errrrrr... WTFH is he talkin' about?!?))

I snatch the transcript away...

And saw this...

My heart jumps to my throat, as the assistant dean came up behind me with her daughter... I turned around, tears welling up in my eyes, totally shocked. Then I catch my breath as she says to both he and I, "I hope you have a good Holiday Vacation." I stammer a bit... "I... I... um... YA, I'm gonna have... um... An amazing, wonderful vacation NOW!!!!" I show her my transcript... She goes, "Oh good for you Cyndy." My response is pure and totally truthful, "I feel like crying now. NO, I think I am going to cry... I didn't think I would pass biology. I thought maybe I would get a "D" or even an "F", but never a "C". I'm in total shock right now. I think I need to go back to my office for a few and calm the FFFF down. (No, I don't cuss in front of kids, especially one of my boss's kids. That's a huge no-no in my book.)" I thank them both, and wish them a Merry Christmas.

I dunno how the heck I pulled a "C", but I'm more than happy that I did. 2 weeks of vacation now... I think I'll spend my time reading some of my textbooks... or maybe catching up on my series, The Heaven and Hell Chronicles by Kenneth Zeigler... or maybe I'll clean house and bs until I go back to work...

Right now, sleep is calling my name... :)

Oh, JR and I are on a break for the week of Christmas. We talked on the phone yesterday. Everything is good between us. He sadly works every day, even on Christmas Morning, before getting 3 days off. I'll get to see him and spend time with him come Dec 27th. Before he goes back to work on Dec 28th... It's hard to be with someone on a 3rd shift. Since I work that shift before I am patient with JR and understand his needs for sleep, some alone time with family and his own friends.

*YAWN* Good nap weather right now as the storm clouds are closing in on the Houston skyline... :) See Ya!
