When I woke up yesterday morning, I was on top of the world. The training for my job which I had been summoned to on Thursday was cancelled via Voice mail. I headed to the Barber Shop and got a cut and line up. As I was rushing to get to Morgan from all the way down in Fell’s Point, I received a text message from one of my classmates informing me that class was cancelled due to the fact that the professor was in a conference.
After chilling out for about 30 minutes, I headed to my D.E. class where I had the conversation which I published in the post prior to this one. I’ve been beating myself up about the fact that this’ll be the first ‘F’ I’ve received for a final grade, but more so, due to the fact that I know I could have done better than what I did.
When school started back in August, the class had about 15-18 students. After Midterm exams and the Add/Drop period, only 6 students were left in the class. 2 students are barely passing with C’s and the other 4 of us are well below the threshold of any hope of passing.
At this point, I felt as if I should just hang it up and just concentrate on the two other classes I still have a shot of passing, but then I realized that all hope was not lost. I could ace the final, and still end up getting a D in the class. The last time I checked, D’s were much more friendlier to GPA’s than F’s, so the battle isn’t over yet.
I’ve just chalked up this class as a learning experience. Next semester I’ll be taking the same professor over again, and I know that I’ll have to study smarter. Hopefully my GPA won’t be impacted too bad by this class.
