Haven't updated in a while but first things first....
Today was my last day of school!!!!
I still have a summer filled with scholarship applications, grant applications, ACT and SAT studying, and preparing to take a COMPASS (dual credit college entrance exam, must be taken yearly) test again.
Unfortunately I have terrible news in that I was correct about my Algebra II exam.... I got a 67% on it :/ I'm beyond dissapointed in myself, as it counted as 20% of our semester grade, but whats done is done. I am frustrated because I KNOW that with more time I could have finished the test, checked my answers, and done 2x better, but I can't change that now. At my school you must be referred to take any class above Algebra II (such as pre-algebra) and because my over all grade for the year was a low B (82) I was not referred, so I am not eligible for pre calculus. Even I was though, I don't think I would have taken it. I can't risk bringing my GPA even lower and don't feel like I could keep up. Therefore I'm considering the idea of taking Dual Credit College Algebra. How hard is college algebra? This is what my teacher recommended, and it would be nearly free, so I'm very much liking the idea as of right now. I would have to place into the class, but if I did that I would be able to start with pre cal or trig my first year of college....very optimal. I'm nervous about just how hard it might be though, to take a class in my wost subject, dual credit :/ what do you guys think?
OTHER than that nasty grade though, I finished all of my classes with all A's!
I even got a 98 in my compositions class, and special recognition. I'm so excited because I very much enjoy writing, dispite my problems, and I am glad that I was able to do so well in that class. My teacher was phenomial. She also recommended me to a few writing scholarships to look into!!!
More bad news though, a few days ago Sour tripped or something in her paddock when she was feeling a little too frisky, and was lame. I called the vet and thankfully its just a sprain, but she's on stall rest for two weeks and limited turn out for two more just to be safe, and no driving for 5 weeks so that she doesn't re-injure herself. She does NOT like being cooped up but is already improving and making a pain out of herself, dumping things in her stall and just in general being a butt xD that's my Sour! LOL
