Midterms are Done

Well, Wednesday night I got in after 11pm after the crazy, cold, wet car problem mentioned below. I fiddled about for a bit getting ready for work, went to work, got out 2 hours late went in to take my pre-calculus midterm and promptly forgot what numbers are. I don't have my grade yet but I don't feel good about it. Fortunately this class isn't as exam weighted in its grades as most.

The other exams went OK.

There's only one grade I've actually gotten back. The Japanese midterm was an even greater worry than the math. I missed a lot of classes early on and was struggling, so I went to class yesterday with some trepidation.

I got a 100. A one with two zeroes behind it. I don't know when I've ever gotten a 100 on an actual exam, "A's" yes but perfect? Certainly not in Japanese. Even better, the instructor decided to let me make-up the assignments I'd missed so I've gone from hanging on for dear life to sitting pretty in my hardest class, which at 6 credits a huge chunk of my semester GPA.  Happy day.

It's unseemly for southern gentlemen to gloat or emote so I'll just let these two young ladies convey my sentiments on the matter.

1 I'm a little worried about the snakes in the background there.

5 Lucky you, my Japanese classes were basically self study with weekly sessions with a tutor, and then the grade came from a visiting professor from Cornell whose accent was atrocious.

It's probably why I didn't do so well by the end of them.  I've forgotten most of it from disuse.

6 I cannot remember if the snake motif was in the show proper. Professor's totem is shark, not snake. Apart from her, nobody is symbolically linked with her animal. Sakamoto is obviously a cat, but...

7 I think the clip symbolizes dancing past ones setbacks and the snake represents the little problems one encounters in life, like being born bone-crushingly stupid...or a robot.
