    Got my grades!

    I had to settle for a mere 4.0 for the semester.

    Feels good finishing out this segment of my matriculation this way.

    4.0? That's pretty bad on a 100 scale. I thought you were graduating with honors.


    Good Job there Tom!

    Congrats on the 4.0! I've been there and done that, but I don't think it will happen this semester.


    I aced out of my Stats 200 final, so I don't have to worry about that next week. I got my A already.

    Calc II has been a rocky road for me. If the final goes well maybe I'll walk out of there with a B. But I may have to settle for a C.

    I have to do a presentation and a small paper for my GIS class. Not sure of my grade in there at the moment, A or B.

    Straight up, B is pretty decent in Calc II and a C will get the degree.

    Nice going on grades. A 4.0 at a decent college is nothing to sneeze at.

    I personally am just taking it easy, hoping when I graduate in December, I can find some type of work in my field, but I have to fight getting too negative about the whole thing, and in my spare time, work on skills that companies need. [1]

    [1]: Its a tough balance. I show off my RedHat, AIX, and Solaris creds, people think I'm a UNIX snob and know nothing about Windows. If I show people the latest stuff with Windows Server 2008 (hyper-v, NAP, bitlocker, Exchange 2007 tricks), they think I'm "merely" a Windows button clicker (paper MCSEs are common who have the cert but don't know how to make stuff work in companies.) I plop all my cards on the table showing what I've done over the years, the HR weenies do the "jack of trades... master of none" line.
