:woot:

I just finished writing the second of two humongous papers that were due this term! The one I just finished was almost 20 pages long and counts for 60% of my grade!

:passedout:

Now, all I have are finals this week...one will be difficult...and then I'll have about three weeks off!!!

:happydance:

I hear my needles calling..."Oh Nathalie...where are you???" Hush now...three more days...

:roflhard:

Oh, sorry, I had to have a moment of self-indulgence...

Two more classes left until I graduate!

:passedout:

Thanks! My degree with be in Social Sciences with a minor in History. The 20-page paper was for the required class that all history minors have to take before they graduate (Research and Methodology). :ick:

I plan on teaching after I'm done. I'll have a bit more schooling next Fall, but as long as I pass the state certification exams, I'll be good to go. I can complete the education program online and work while I finish the classes.

But to have that B.S. -- after almost 20 years...

Oh Congrats! I know exactly how you feel. I graduated last year, but now I'm in a post-grad Public Relations program. The work itself isn't hard, but there's just SO much of it. I have had a couple of weeks from hell, but it's coming to an end. I still have 3 finals and a paper on ethics to finish, but I can see the light! Thursday is the end (and my birthday!)

Good luck with your exams too!

What a great way to celebrate your birthday, though! Stress-free!

Thanks!!! Two finals down...one to go. Made a 70 on the final I took today. Real booger... :wall:

Went in to take a proctored final (all of my classes are online), and half of the test was not on the study guide that the professor gave us. I answered with a lot of non-committal sentences. I called the professor on my way home and explained that I thought it was a bit difficult given what he had told us to expect (i.e. that we were supposed to study the entire book!). He was so nice and told me I am a good student and not to worry.

Yeah, I played the teacher's pet card. I really want my 4.0!! :teehee:

Ok...so even though dd had a soccer game tonight, when I came home, I decided to bite the bullet and take that last exam.

I am SO glad I did! I'm done!!!!! Now, I'm just waiting for the professor to grade it since it had essay answers. I'm also closely monitoring my school site while he enters grades. I'm a nervous wreck!

But I'm done!

Happy Dance, PEOPLE

!:happydance:

I am going to finish the booga bag I've had OTN for forever for my sister for Christmas!!!

Yippee!!!

:woot::yay:

Sorry...I'm just so happy. I had the final from you-know-where this morning, and I was sick yesterday and still had to study...

Ahhh..

Ok. I'm done celebrating...for now... :teehee:

Yay for being done, Nathalie!! I swear this term just about did my socks in. I finished Sunday night and my grades came out Wednesday night. THREE As!!!!!!! I could NOT believe it! I'm so stinkin' proud of myself.

And I hear you on the knitting thing. I haven't touched my knitting in forever (or KH or ravelry!) and I feel lost. It is taking some time getting back into it.

I'm taking three more classes this coming up term. Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Enjoy your break!! :yay:

What classes did you take this past term? Congrats on the A's!!!!!

One of my professors STILL has not posted grades!!! I mean nothing...not for the mid-term, final, or two papers that were due. I pulled A's out of the other two classes. Doc Z gave me a 100 on the LONG paper in Research and Methodology -- 60% of my grade in that class. I was completely shocked.

I must say that it's been so nice not studying!!!!!!!

What did you register for next term?

I've got TWO more classes, and then I graduate.

Can't believe you are so close to graduating!! Congrats. I'm happy for you, yet just a teensy bit jealous too! :mrgreen:

I took a math class, Intro to Crim Justice (for my minor) and Public Policymaking for my major (polysci).

I'm signed up for Finite math, Survey of Corrections, and Constitutional Law (in CJ), both for my minor.

As embarrassed as I am to admit this, I'm kinda ready for school to start again. I'm a bit bored. :shock:

Side rant: The price of textbooks is so freaking ridiculous. It boils my blood.

:passedout:

I`m so sorry, but I can`t pass this one up. You`ve gotten that B.S. after almost 20 years... I`ve been taking B.S. all my life.

Seriously though, I am so very proud of you! Congrats Teacher Chicky. You need to give yourself a treat now. You sure have earned it.

:hug:

SkyBlue, wow...you have a load! I took one CJ class...way back when...and made a C. I was sleeping during class. I remember walking into class, everyone getting their pencils out, and coming to the unfortunate conclusion that we were about to take an exam. Of course, I was taking night classes, after working full days. I also found out, about three quarters of the way through, that I was pregnant. Dh and I had been trying, but I had no clue that during the first few weeks, preggers are exhausted.

Good luck in your classes! I can't believe you're ready for them to begin again! I'm totally burned out. I've been knitting like crazy, even though I really need to read two books for book reviews. It would be smart, but I'm having too much fun.

I found out that I made all A's last term. One of my professors never posted grades. For anything. I have no idea what I made on any of my papers, mid-term, or final. All I know is that I got an A in the class.

Oh, and The.Knitter...:teehee: I think most of us have earned our B.S. by now. ;)

Thanks y'all!!
