First grade back

I was just checking up on my final grades for this past semester and I was pleasantly surprised. First up was my Principles of Management and my grade is...(insert drum roll here)...A! Yes that's right I got an "A" which was kind of surprising given how I felt about the final exam. Almost want to contact the teacher and be sure but who am I to argue. I'll take it and run. Now I'm just awaiting the final results of my Lean Manufacturing class. I'm hoping for the best in that one. My GPA stands now at 3.66. Time for some happy music......

School's out

Well my final for Lean Manufacturing was an experience. I think I passed ok but after not really being tested all semester and teacher being out 5 weeks(2 on vacation + 3 out for surgery) it was a challenge. I enjoy school but I was looking forward to a break to a normal schedule. Well now I can focus on other things(cars, computers etc...) > Well I thought I'd share this ballad from Alice Cooper which I thought was appropriate. I hope you enjoy!

Final day of school

Yes today is my final day of school. I have my final exam/class for Lean Manufacturing later in the afternoon. I must say I'm looking forward to a break from school. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy going to school but it wears on you a bit. Especially when it's between family, work and other stresses. I had my other exam yesterday in Principles of Management and boy I don't feel like I did very well. Even though I did the essay on the movie "Gung Ho" (part of the exam) . The rest of the exam had to do with our textbook reading (which I did do). Only thing is that come test time it's as if I came up blank. One part was a matching terms type which wasn't so bad. The killer was three essay questions. I absolutely hate those. Like I said I had a very, very tough time with them. I know my answers weren't that good. I think I did well enough in my other exams and work that I'll pass, but it just felt crappy finishing off like that. Oh well I hope to do better with today's exam.
