This is my last big weekend before the end of semester. My stomach is tied in intricate double bows as I'm studying my math final. I know I must do well in order to receive a "C" letter grade. In the last half of this semester I've pulled myself up from and "F" in math- it is by far my worst subject- math is a language I'm not capable of learning...
For the first time in the last three years my french teacher has finally warmed up to me, I received an "A" on my 15 sentence reply (in french) to a news report on Veils covering faces...My professor actually told me that I'd do well if I ever wanted to major in the french language and she would be more than willing to help me fix the 15 sentences into a writing sample for a degree in it. I of course told her politely my preference was English and writing. But what an accomplishment for me!
This weekend holds all my grades in fine lines....what happens next depends on my writing ability in my last two classes: Horror literature and Scottish Literature.
Horror, I must complete my 6 page film review of "Paranormal Activity" and then on Monday I will receive my take home writing assignments for my Final.
In Scottish literature I must finish my 10 page critical review of "Poor things" By Alasdair Gray connecting it with my class learning for my final grade. This also happens to be a paper I plan on sending in as my writing sample for my Masters Degree in English which will start this Summer as long as I can get all three letters of recommendation, the application, the fees, and my writing sample in before February. They are only picking 15 people to Participate in this Master program. I also have to maintain a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 for this semester and next semester in order to be accepted for this program.
And Finally I have to do my Final revisions for my short story publication.
Is it me or is everything happening so fast?
Please forgive me as I slack horribly on my blogging and commenting.
