Funny Friday and school

Today is a funny Friday. Yes it sure is. Thanks a bunch for those of you blog posters who choose to follow my blog entries. I try to be as entertaining as possible. In the meantime, I am also attending school, halfway done with my undergraduate degree, but as of right now I am in academic shambles. I am trying really hard this time around and trying to get my grades back up. I know. A person like me should not be struggling with school but I am. I know my blog posts have not been really that frequent with my last writing coming three days ago with the buses.

I urge you not to fall in the same problem as me and do your studies efficiently. Make sure you are taking the right courses. If your grades are too low, fix them. There are penalties for low grades. I have written a blog entry about that just last week. You can go to the link for academic success!

I am not kidding about academic success, it's critical for your degree. Think about, a degree is worth nothing or very little with grades that are failures or too below standards.

Group work in school can be fun and hectic. For me, it's been hectic. I've either been zoning out, falling far off topic, or my classmates not doing work. This is what stinks about group work in school, however you are working in groups in the workforce.

My group members were reading "The trial and Death of Socrates" I had fun reading the book. I had trouble sharing my ideas. Maybe I didn't understand the book really well. They got it more than I do. Looks like I need catching up. This is what frustrates me sometimes, when you're not keeping up with the readings, you go to class and you don't know what's going on. I have lots of readings ahead as well as doing a lot of math problems.

I am usually a very good math student. I used to get As on it from elementary to high school. Now in college, it's my worst. How can that possibly be? I haven't taken math in three years so yes, I can be rusty with it. I just failed pre-calculus last semester so I am taking it again. I am doing much better at it, finally passing my first test. Let's see how it goes with the rest.

It's also a funny Friday because it's raining outside. Just two days ago it was nice, warm and sunny. Now it's raining. Interesting. My umbrella broke on my way to class.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

  1. I understand, I was the same way. My first degree was barely obtained. It only took one semester of not really doing anything. I spent the next 3 years trying to recover. When I went back to school a few years ago that nasty GPA followed me. But hard work and determination you will succeed! I promise. Trust can be done.
