It's almost over

Just a quick post as I take a break from studying. I don't know if I mentioned it before, but for the past month I've been taking a remedial chemistry class at the UA (thanks to my employee discount, they pay for 90% tuition!). We covered a lot of material in the span of a month with a test every Friday. Had this been my first time taking the class, I'm afraid I would have failed, since I didn't do so hot taking an equivalent class at Seattle U over the course of a whole quarter. A few years later, along with a lot more maturity and knowledge on the subject, I'm doing really well. I have my classmates to thank for this also, as the class is graded on a curve and class test averages were around 50% (I've turned into one of the people I hated that threw off the curve)! That easily puts me at an A. Yet, I continue to study. I'm so sick of chemistry now: I studied the whole long weekend for a test on Monday and now for my final tomorrow. No matter what I do, I try to do my best. This is resulting in a headache!

Well, that is the reason for the scarcity of posting on my part. I will be free tomorrow, but I haven't even felt like writing lately anyways. I'm in another emotional dip here and want to spare readers another melancholy post. All I know is that I'm baking tomorrow in my first free evening!

Feel free to throw down some melancholy posts, we'll do our best to empathize/sympathize and then cheer you up. :)

Yay for class almost being done! Going to school can be so annoying, but there's always that great relief when it's DONE. I wish I had more of that with work. In the "real world" things just drag on and on and on. That gets to me.

Can't wait to see what goodies you bake up, definitely share some photos. :)

I'm glad your class went well and please post away! We're here and will offer as much *comfort* as possible!

Hey guys! Thanks for the encouragement! Trying to stay busy here!

Rae--I was in the very same chem class that you are talking about. I was scared to death of Minderhout after I heard other students talk! I even went to talk to her during her office hours to determine whether I should drop the class or not. That's how I met Sandra. She ended up dropping, my stubborn butt didn't. I got a C-. So chemistry scares me. I have my confidence back though! I have an A!
