i may have set my scholarly precedent a bit too high, but i got an A on my first midterm! ya-hoo!
i had to hold back my little dance when i pulled my test out of the pile " saw a big fat A written on it. 1 of 6 out of 31 in the class to get an A.
it's good to be smart. (my head may explode soon)
unfortunately, this does mean the expectations of myself are fairly high now. if i woulda just got a B, there woulda been less pressure for the next 3-4 years.
