Perspective

Well it was bound to happen. I got a psych test back today. It was a B-. I was so surprised I cannot tell you. It is the first time that I've got less than an A. I was trying to be philosophical about it all as I went back to my seat. Erin, who sits next to me, gave me an ecstatic look. "I got a B-!" she said.

Perspective is a darn funny thing, isn't it? I mean, I know it is not a big deal, but dang. I felt much better when Joe sidled up. "What did you get?" Turns out he got a B- also. He was as disappointed as I was.

Here's something that's good news no matter how you look at it. Tim's back to work.

So glad Tim's back to work. Was this a "blue book exam" (do they still call them that?) aka essay test, multiple choice, or a mix?

Is this the prof who was giving everyone a hard time? Hm.

Great news about Tim! Yay!

Can you, and perhaps others, challenge the grade you received in Psychology? Congratulations to Tim! By the way I stopped by where you work again today (Bob and I were on our way back home from Salamanca). Judy told me when you work next, so perhaps I'll drop by one of those days and say hello.

Bob said...

Don't fret over the B--. You're doing great. Tim got the job! YEA!!!!!!!

Hell. I would have been happy just to pass the damn class.

Congrats on the B-, it's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick ;)
Congrats on Tim being back at work :)

Wonderful news about Tim's job.

I understand your chagrin about the B-. I too had an A average and felt I didn't get out of bed for less than 80%, but shit happens! You get a B every now and then to keep you trying hard. Like your friend(and you) said, Yay! I got a B- (and its way better than a D).

Oopsy I realized I just swore on a nice girl's blog.....sorry 'bout that, no offence meant.

Sometimes the nice girl swears on her own blog. It happens.

Don't knock the B- ...it's a pass, and a pretty good one. (Says she - the one who was gutted when she didn't get a 7 ...top mark... on an assignment last year).
Glad that Tim has work!

WhiteStone said...

Awww, a B- is not to be worried about. At least not in the grand scheme of things. We will gladly give you an A here-in.

PaintedPromise said...

and WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO to Tim!!!! now could he send some of that "job" luck to Randy please???

Kelly said...

Great news about Tim's job!!!!

And as I always tell my kids...one test grade doesn't make the entire semester. It's past. Look ahead now.

Oh Deb - awesome news about Tim. He must be stoked/relieved. And as for the psych test - did ANYONE get a high grade? And wasn't this position (teacher) advertised when you were on a break... what's the deal? gotta zoom, will email you tonight!
