Journalism is my Niche

Honestly, I'm going pretty well in my journalism class.
Overall: 93.1%
It's an A, and I got another A today on a quiz, which may bump me a little higher.
Here's an interesting little chart for you guys.

The grades on the left? Those are the grades that I got. The grades on the right? The class average.
Yeah. I'd have to say I'm doing pretty well.
I really enjoy the class. The teacher knows me by name now, which is always good. When the teacher doesn't know you by name, chances are they won't care as much. Honestly.
Almost every teacher I have ever had has known me by name. I make the point of staying after class to ask a question, tell short stories in class relevant to the subject, and ask questions about assignments.
I want to make myself known. So far two of three teachers know my name.

Today I was walking across campus and saw my math teacher from the past two semesters. I figured since he teaches 6 classes a semester he wouldn't remember me. He smiled and waved and said hi before I could do anything.
THAT made my day. He was my FAVORITE teacher. The fact that he was happy to see me was awesome.

Overall school's been pretty good for me actually. I'm nervous about my upcoming psychology class, but I think if I work it right I should pull through just fine.

I've still been working on overcoming my fear. A co-worker today told me a near death experience her mom had, which really did help me. I've heard SO MANY stories about this from people that I know, not just random ones on the internet. Plus my mom bought me a cross to wear. I never take it off. It really helps me, to remind me that someone is there protecting me and watching over me.
Even my atheist friend had a change of heart when he heard the 5 signs I had. He said I would have to be a complete IDIOT to ignore them. That meant a lot to me.

Anyway, I have to get up at 7 am tomorrow for work, so I should dash.

hi,
Similar interests, mutual respect and strong attachment with each other are what friends share between each other. These are just the general traits of a friendship.
To experience what is friendship, one must have true friends, who are indeed rare treasure.

I have added you to my blogroll, hope you can do the same thing for me so that we can have constant communication.

How many people are in your classes? Our classes were tiny, like 10 kids, so the teacher knew every one. I'm assuming you must have really big classes.

Awesome to hear you're doing so well in school. :) That always feels nice.

Angels are definately watching over all of us. We were in a rollover in a Jeep when my daughter was 5 months old. My husband got thrown from the vehicle and we all made it out with nothing more than a few bruises, then I ended up pregnant with my son a couple weeks later. We were all very blessed. :)
