Spring 2010 – In the books

Today was my last final in my Spring Term, you have all heard me bellyache about this term and it has been difficult to manage, but I wanted to share with you the highs and the lows of this term.

Math:

Lets start with the biggest roller coaster. This class has been most taxing for me. It hasn’t been easy for me and right now, before the final grades are posted, I have 93% and I’m waiting on the final exam. If I get a 168/200 or better on the final, another math A is in my future. (I’m really holding my breath) I really appreciate the teacher though, his enthusiasm for math is astounding. Even when I was stressed out, I really found that the way he presented the information was something I could understand. If you’re going to Mt. Hood Community College or Portland Community College – Scott Eakman is worth a looksee.

Intro To Business:

This class was difficult for a couple of reasons. It was a requirement for my degree but well under my skill level.. I really didn’t know how to approach this class, I (and another individual) were the oldest two in the class. Most of the students were under 22. That was pretty interesting. The class started with 15 students, only 7 remained at the final. The teacher almost had to cancel the class. When I went to take the final, I realized I could have not taken the final and gotten a B in the class. So, I expect an A. Obviously.

Technical Writing.

Oy. This class was a serious one for me. It was my first online only class. It really made me batty as I couldn’t really assess what the teacher was looking for. I realize that I’m going to have many online only classes in my college career, but this one really made me assess what I was going to do with this information. When you don’t see what a teacher is looking for, you have a hard time assessing the situation a giving them quality work. The numbers have been published, and how they look right now, it looks like I missed an A by 2 points. Sad.

They have a week to post the grades and I’ll be in Vegas. So, They’ll be there when I get back, right?

  1. I am proud of you!!! I would struggle to go back to school at this point… and there is so much I could improve on – enjoy Vegas – and know that you have an online family pulling for you.

  2. Nick,
    I hope you got an A in BA 101, which you deserve for just showing up each week so that he didn’t have to cancel the class.
    It was fun taking that class with you and if you hadn’t have been there, I probably would have gone nuts trying to work with all those kids.
    Best wishes,
    James
