WOW!!!

I received my marks back yesterday evening for my research paper and my final grade. Even though my research paper was 3 pages short (it was supposed to be between 10-12 pages, but I handed in 7 --and not even because there was a total of half a sentence on page 7), I received 94%!!! WooHoo!!! The feedback I received was that it was well written, the research integrated nicely and a good use of all 7 of my research sources. So, although I thought for sure I bombed my final exam from lack of preparing and wrote my paper the last minute (And I am talking last minute as everything had to be submitted September 30th and I emailed that paper on 11:20pm September 30th), I pulled off an A- in the course!! The sad thing is, this really didn't teach me anything except that I can get things done in the final hour and pull off great grades. I wonder if I had bombed everything if I would force myself to prepare better next time...
So it's the final quarter of the year. Overall I feel that I have had a pretty great year. I have finished three courses for school, was able to travel to Latvia and England, and have gained more control of my finances although I can still better myself in that department. The final quarter I have started on two more courses for school and I have been working on my last quarter financial plan today.

Way to pull it off by the skin of your teeth! Lol. Seriously though good job! You obviously knew your stuff to be able to pump out a 94% paper at the last minute.
I think so far you've had a great year of growth. Yay for progress!
