Got my scores back!
Please pretend you all care for me, I'm excited.
Spanish exam grade: A!
Specifically a 92%. Okay, it's not an A+, but I had the dates of the exam wrong and
didn't study. I got an A only with my honest-to-god knowledge of Spanish, not through
Earth Science exam grade: A!
Specifically a 90%. Alright, still not an A+, and it actually took a lot of studying
to get my grade that high. Still, an A's an A and I won't feel down about it!
Global History exam grade: A+!
Specifically a 99%! I know I got that question on Desmond Tutu wrong, but with a
ninety nine that means I got every other multiple chose right, full points on all the
document based questions, and highest marks on the thematic and document based
essays. I'm psyched!
English final assessment grade: A+!
Specifically a 98%. Upon reflection, maybe I shouldn't have written then essay worth
a fifth of my yearly grade at three in the morning the day before it was due, but
hey, I did that on every assignment all year, and I never got less then a one hundred
present on those. (Except poetry, which I handed in late. I don't like writing
Geometry exam grade: C.
Specifically a 75%. I spent easily three times as many hours preparing for this exam
than any of the others to get this grade.
Yeah, my lowest grade is in the area I put the most work into. But! Now that you
understand that I can sink as many hours as I like into math without ever being
successful, how about I tell you that scoring as high as I did was enough for me to
pass the class, meaning that working so hard all year wasn't a total waste?
So, yes, my geometry grade is the epitome of averagness, and I'll have to explain
that to college admissions officers in a couple years.
BUT DUDE, A'S IN EVERYTHING EXCEPT MATH, AND EVEN THERE I'M NOT A FAILURE. My sense
of self worth survives another year of public education! Whoo!
(Electricity, sculpture and P.E, did not give a final examination, but I aced those
classes as well.)
Next year I'll be in advanced placement U.S history, honors English, physiology (I
will be be first Junior in my school to take that class), and... A two year math
class. I'll also be dropping tack and field to audition for the musical (Hairspray,
if you're wondering), and my first summer cross country practice is today. Busy
So, anyone else want to share some exciting grade news?
