Speak You Forever

Well, Spanish grades are posted. The finals were 15% of our class grade. I went into it with a 90% in the class (the cut-off for an A)....and I got a C, a 77%, actually. This puts me at 88% for the class according to KSOL. Now, am I mad at myself for not doing something to earn those two extra percentage points? No. Even though I hated the class, I believe I did everything I could to the best of my ability. It still awes me how I can leave a test feeling like I understood everything and still earn a C. I cannot dwell on this, for my days of foreign language are done, but if I had the chance, there are a few things I would like to say to K-State's Spanish department and Profesora Contreras. But, ah, I'm not one to get angry at others, or if I do, I don't display it. So, all I have to say is "Yay for America and the English language!" I promise I will speak you forever.

My three days home have been. . . .unsatisfying. Note to self: do something significant next year. Travel. Stay with friends. Get a job. Anything besides spending a month trying to read Moby Dick and thinking how good it would be for my body if only I could motivate myself to spend some quality time at the Rec on a regular basis. This is depressing.
