I got my midterm back today. Not since the depths of Physics 153 in first-year, when I was a naive eighteen year-old, have I scored so low on an exam. Well, maybe in third year, but that’s beside the point.
I passed… barely. I hope he scales it. The average mark was 60% or something. I’m below average. Ewww… I’m below average. I’d hate to go through life labeled like that. Say it with me again… below average. Makes me want to shower.
So, I was fairly bummed out when I went out to dinner tonight. I met up with two of undergrad classmates, Johnny and Wendy. Johnny told me it’s ok as long as I passed. Yeah, I guess. I always try to overacheive (it’s a tactic that’s served me well, academically at least), so settling for a pass is hard to do.
Well, tomorrow is another day. I’m going to sleep so I can get to it.
