This morning at 8am I began my very last final.
I didn't feel very optimistic about it. It was History class and there were a lot of dates to remember. I had calculated the worst case scenario and the best and I was simply hoping I would do well enough to keep a B in the class.
After the test I sat in the lobby waiting for Momma to pick me back up. My perfectionist mind was going crazy thinking of all the things I probably got wrong and how I shouldn't have capitalized the word Southerners. I kept telling myself to let it go. I couldn't go back and change anything. It was done and I would have to accept the grade whatever it was.
Little by little I worked on letting it go. Then Luke picked me up and we enjoyed some time together and a nice celebration lunch.
This afternoon I looked up my grade and...I made an 85! And, I made an A in the class!
Which now means...
I did it! I finished my first semester of college. It is official!
And, to top it all off, I made a 4.0 GPA in my college level classes and a B in my developmental math.
I'm super duper happy and very, very, very blessed!
This is my celebration jump...
This is a bit what my tired and blurry mind feels like...(I predict that the finals' week symptoms will be gone by Monday.)
But, mostly, I'm smiling and looking forward to a restful winter break...
I have lovely posts that I hope to share with all of you soon.
How are you?
What have I missed while away in the land of college studying?
