As the semester nears its end...

Well, grades are in for LIS2000. I aced the final and got 18/20 on class participation. This leaves me with an A in the class (actually, A-, but who is counting?)

This lifts a GIGANTIC weight off my shoulders. Huge. I was genuinely worried about my participation grade in that class. I'm on cloud 9 right now.

Now, I have two more assignments due in my LIS2774 class, tomorrow. One is just a self-evaluation--easy enough to do. The other I'll be working on late tonight and hopefully pull off okay. It's a partial professional portfolio that we are to put together and work on as we go through the program. These two assignments count for 30% of the total grade. I expect to get 14.5/16 on the evaluation; the portfolio I'm not sure on, as nobody in the class understands what we're supposed to include with it. So we shall see. I'm also still waiting on the final grade for our presentations (which I feel like I dropped the ball on). So there are still 45 points unaccounted for in that seems odd to me that the last 3 assignments are worth nearly half our grade, when we've had nine assignments, none cumulative, but it is what it is, I suppose. Wish me luck in that one. I currently am sitting on 84% in that class, a solid B. Just need to maintain that level and I'm completely good to go. However, even if I get a C in that class it's not the end of the world for me, as I'm changing tracks and the class would just fill the slot of an elective anyway. And since I have an A in 2000, that will maintain my B average to stay in the program. So it seems wherever I end up, I should be good to go.

Add to that the fact that on Saturday morning I scored the biggest doe that's been taken at my parents' place all hunting season, and the week is starting off pretty damn good. Classes end after tomorrow, and I'm putting in for a new job at work. Wish me best of luck on that one--I think I'll be much happier doing it.

That's all for now! Happy Monday.
