And exhale...

I have finally finished this semester!! I think the worst is over as far as classes go. And you know what? I got a B in biochem! I'm not sure how I managed that, but I did and I'm ecstatic! I've never worked so hard in my life for a class. I'm just so relieved that I won't have to retake it.

The one downer of the day though, was that I ended up with a C in my sports science class. Here's the story. About two weeks ago, I had my last test in biochem. On that same day, I had scheduled my sports science test (because I'm taking it as a distance education class). I missed my appointment at the testing center because I was studying for my biochem test that night (which I ended up acing!!! YEAH!) . The way the class was set up, you could either take all 5 tests and if you felt satisfied with your grade, you didn't have to take the final. So, I just decided to take the final. I checked my appointment for the final and saw that I had scheduled it on the same day as biochem. I wanted to spend as much time studying for biochem as possible, so I rescheduled my exam for Thursday. So, last night, I was checking to see if any of my grades were posted and I saw that one had been posted for the sports science class, even though I had yet to take the final. I immeadiately checked a syllabus (which didn't have any dates on it) on the course website and then remembered that he sent out a specific syllabus for this semester in an email. I checked it and it said that we needed to have taken the final by the 28th (a Tuesday). My heart sank into my stomach and I immeadiately wrote my professor and email explaining all of this and continuted to study for my final. I wake up this morning and my professor tells me that because he's already submitted the grades, there's nothing he can do. I'm just glad that I did weel enough on my tests and my paper that a zero test grade didn't bring my grade down to failing!! Grrr.... I'm still really mad about it though.

Any way, so now that I am done with classes for this semester, I am going to hit up a bunch of things on my list, namely getting my house in order so that I can photograph it to share with the world. :) I'm looking forward to a very productive summer. How about you?
