Problem with a Professor

First grade......B (ok not bad)
Second grade......B (sigh)
next step...talk to my professor asap

It's not that I don't mind getting B's; my problem in this particular English class seems to be my Professor's impeccable memory of how ambitious  I was two years ago, and how I'm lagging behind this semester. After this second B, I decided it was time for a talk. He noticed how I'm distracted this year and so I 'fessed up on what's been happening lately. After a second of sympathy, we went on to what changes I can make on my revision and off I went on my merry way.

At this point in time with graduation looming ahead, I'm not as afraid of a B as I was previously. Likewise, I am also not afraid of what can happen when I don't do my best. I had a situation at work that disappointed me. My lesson learned? I have to do what seems right to me and if someone has a different opinion, then so be it. Sometimes a B is better then killing yourself over an A!

My birthday is coming up so I'm going to try to be happy for the rest of this month :)

You didn't say when, so happy birthday!  : )  And a B is not so bad. Especially given the circumstances...could be a LOT worse. Love ya, Shelly
