today started out ok, got sucky
Got up really early (4am) to do some work regarding our client
who bought another company
. That was fine, we got all our work done and all was well. Then I came to school and found out that I absolutely bombed an exam (Org Change & Design). C-minus on a curve, bombing. I don't tend to do that (my Modern Poetry class in 1991, and my Fundamentals of Operations Management class in 2003 notwithstanding) and I don't like it. I really
don't like it when I actually studied and tried hard, and thought I did fine. By "fine" I mean "at least a B", because it's a rare day when I get a good grade on an exam that is half multiple choice. But I just biffed this one. In this class, there are three exams plus the final. The final is optional, you use it to replace your lowest exam grade. In this same sort of class last semester (same prof), I didn't take the final. I will be taking the final in this class, unless I absolutely kick serious butt on the remaining exams. Not impossible, but also not likely.
Just a real bummer. I have an exam tonight in another class, and I am hoping not to carry the bad feelings about this
grade into the class tonight. It'll be difficult enough (half managerial questions, which is fine, but half semiconductor-related information) without the stress of already having been a sucky student at some point in the day.
