Grade day grade day, nerves are raw and frayed day.

So from now on at any moment they could update my transcript on Columbianet and I could learn my academic fate for the semester. Scary. Been waiting for a couple weeks and it's finally here. Of course it COULD be that none of my profs got the grades in on time and I learn NOTHING, but if that happens I might just waste another day moping around WAITING so I'm gonna hope it doesn't. I hope to learn about at least one new grade today, because any of my remaining grades will have a profound effect on how I feel about the semester. Well, maybe not social psych which is all based on one test which I didn't handle well, but sociology or lit hum. I'm gonna leave this entry open in order to report post-informed emotions since making two entries over this one thing seems a little self indulgent.

9:10- still not updated. Thinking about putting on my Eddie Bauer polartec hat I got yesterday because my head is cold. That really has nothing to do with the grades, but sitting around in my shirt and boxers and a polartec hat is a funny image.

9:20 talking about cold head jinxed me and made my legs feel cold. Put on pants. Still no news. Going to eat breakfast.

9:30 Fast Broken. Columbia.net slow to respond, could this mean that grades are being uploaded! Stay tuned for the high drama. Okay....pettiness on my part...but damn it I'm a showman!

9:40 Read Ann Landers online, oh that wacky Mitch, when will he learn? System HAS updated and I'm logging in. Taking forever and a day though. The air is crackling with electricity. N stuff.

2 more grades are in today. An A+ in social Psychology and an A in European Masterpieces of Literature and Philosophy.

I'm a little perturbed by this because an A+ in social psychology shouldn't have been possible. I barely got an A on the first test and I KNOW I didn't do well on the second, which means that my grade was probably bumped up due to class participation. That amounts to special treatment just because I said a lot during class, which I don't think is very fair. While it's true that I did basically break the seal of silence over the class and allow for a greater level of discourse, I don't feel that I deserved special treatment after bombing a test. I had written that damned class off and was hoping for an A- or a B+, an A+ is just not fair. My only hope is that it was entered wrong and the A+ is for Sociology (which I could have earned a Legit A+ in) and my social psychology grade is still outstanding. The fact that my other psych grade is completed but not yet entered gives me hope for that. Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion to 2001: An Odd Gradesy.
