Now for the not-so-good news. My grades aren't what they expected. I got them about a week ago but didn't tell my parents (well, my mom) until today when she asked. Here they are:
FS (stupid English class): B-
Writing Poetry: C+
Now I thought I'd get a solid B in Stats and FS. Guess not. As for Shakespeare, it was a fun class and I got Bs on all the papers. but the 2 tests he gave really brought my grade down since I pretty much failed them. And how the fuck did I get a C+ in Poetry? I figured I'd get at least a B in that. I mean... people say they like my poetry, some poems more than others... hmmm, maybe it was that Anne Sexton essay that I did a crappy job on at the last minute or my class participation. Humph. I better get an A in Writing Fiction next year. I mean, these are writing classes. I'm a writer. I'm supposed to do well in writing classes, not get a "you're slightly better than average" grade. But those aren't the worst grades I've had at Allegheny, so I'm not crushed or anything. I seem to do a lot better in the fall semester than the spring semester. Hmm. Well, next year I'm taking Chemistry and Archaeology (as a distribution class), Writing Fiction, Technical/Professional Writing, and some Psych class that I forget the name of. I'll do better... I'll keep telling myself that...
And finally the good news. I got into Alpha again! Yay! I was a little worried since I wasn't all that thrilled with the way my application story turned out (I liked the general idea, and I liked how the story actually had a decent plotline and action, unlike some of my stories, but some of the scenes sounded kind of cheesy and weren't explained very well). But I guess it was better than I thought. I think Megan was also accepted, and I know Tom was, but I haven't talked to any of the others yet. But I'm happy!
Oh, and they need to have "bipolar" as a mood, since that's how I feel sometimes.
