After all the stress and fretting…..

Grades for Spring II term have been posted.

This term I tried an on-line course, SO208 – Social Inequality, and discovered that they are rather time consuming; they also require you to be very organized and self-motivated. I maintained a solid A through most of the term, and then my husband left. I fell behind for the week he left and struggled to catch up. Then the final came and I realized that (a) I do not test well and (b) I did not save myself any time to study since I procrastinated on my HUGE paper. I took the final on-line and scored a low B. This began the stress and fretting...

You see, I failed out of college the first time around. Maybe failed is a harsh word, let us just say that at the end of spring term I was on academic probation. I DO NOT see failure as a remote possibility this time around. A master's degree in counseling is my ultimate goal, so I strive very hard to make great grades so I can get into the graduate program of my choice…

I knew my Public Speaking class was going to be an A. However, after taking my final in SO208, Social Inequality, I began to fret that this might be my first B…

Grades posted today…and my straight A average has been preserved…if only by the hair on my chiny, chin, chin.

Lynne, I'm so proud of you! Going to school, while being a wife and mom is hard. As you probably know, I graduated from university with 6 children still at home. It is possible and Heavenly Father will help you through, he did me. Your cause is a good one. You will make it this time, I'm sure! Remember I love you and am always cheering you on. Aunt Debbie
