Goals & Gratitude 6/15/19

I checked the score on my final exam this morning, and it's not good. I got a 64%, I think. It's hard to tell because my teacher grades differently than the computer (some questions are worth more than others), but he has yet to adjust the scores. I know he will curve the exam up a couple of percents so hopefully I will come out with a 68% or 69%. That's close enough to a C- that I will pass the class. However, if I got lower than a 64% to start with, it might not be enough for me to pass. I just have a get a C, and right now I have a C+. Hopefully I will pass, though by the skin of my teeth it seems!
Onto better news! My best friend texted me this morning. She's a professor of library sciences at Syracuse University in NY. She's going to the American Library Association's conference in Washington, D.C. this next week, and she invited me to come. Her mom is coming, and her aunt was supposed to come but had to cancel. So my bestie invited me. The plane and Air bnb are paid for, so all I have to pay for is food and metro fare. I'm so excited! I'm bringing my computer with me so I can do homework in the evenings. I think all my textbooks are online so I won't have to haul much with me at least. I will be in D.C. from next Thursday through the following Wednesday.
I had a good time yesterday. I went to the Orthodox bookstore and picked up two books, a bar of homemade soap, and a cross stitch canvas. I just have to buy the thread for the canvas. I'll take a picture of it this weekend. It's a cross with flowers at the base of it. Very beautiful. Then I drove to my god family's house. My godmother and I went for a walk around the Rose Bowl while we were waiting for her family to get home. Then we went back to her house and had dinner and watched "Emma" (the one with Gwyneth Paltrow). I didn't get home until almost 1 AM, so you know it was a good day. At least I got to sleep in this morning!
I'm still on break this weekend. I start two new classes on Monday.
1) Go for a walk after church tonight.
2) Do some housekeeping tonight while watching TV.
