The semester is over! Finally. This semester has felt like an eternity compared to the swiftness that is summer semester. As you may be aware, I made the Dean's List this past summer. Sadly, I didn't manage to do the same for fall semester. I came close, within about thirty points close, but I didn't quite get there. I needed to make an "A" in all three courses to make the list. I already have two of my grades and one is a "B." I didn't do as well as I should have on my Calculus III final to make an overall "A" in the course. That is fine by me though. I don't like trying to put pressure on myself to make a specific grade. Sure, it is nice getting perfect grades but that isn't learning. If I were to make straight As all the time then what good would college be doing me? If it is that easy I shouldn't even be wasting time with it. That being said, I think I am going to make an "A" in Linear Algebra. The odd thing about it is I had a rough time with Linear Algebra and found Calculus III to be much more enjoyable. I don't have that grade back yet though. The grades are not due, and won't be official, until the nineteenth. So, my instructor has some time before he has to have the grade turned in. I think I did rather well on the final this morning so I am confident that I conquered this semester with two As and a "B."
Maybe now that the semester, and finals, are over I will find more to post here. I've just been too busy doing math to pay attention to much of anything else.
