Yesterday was the last day of my first semester of college… I can’t believe how quickly time went from May until today… however, it certainly didn’t feel like it went by that quickly with the assignments and readings, etc. I just received my final grades.. I was not expecting to get much higher than an 80-85 on my Public Speaking final, because we had a strict time frame of a 6-8 minute speech, with a 15 second grace period. Mine was 9 minutes and 12 seconds and I recorded the speech probably over 100 times. I could not get it any lower than around the 9 minute mark and the one I submitted was free of any errors, so I decided to submit that, knowing I’d get points off. I got a 96. a 90-fucking-6. My professor said my speech was great, except for the length. YAY! So with that, I officially got an A in all my classes. If we were talking numerical averages, they would all be in the upper 90s. Public Speaking Overall average: 97.29, Communications: 95.36 and Art: 99.75. I am proud of myself. It was not easy, but I am determined. Happy to have these next three weeks off though, that’s for sure.
