It has been a long two weeks, a very long two weeks. I survived the last week of Geology 100, created a video for DIgital Video Production, and have started a piece of artwork for Digital Painting, all in a two week period. *sigh*
I had some take home homework to finish, a paper to write (I got a 95%) and take a final exam (I got a 78%) all for Geology 100. I passed Geology 100 with a final grade of 82.85% !!!
I cannot explain in mere words how happy I am, and what kind of weight has been lifted off of my back, so to speak. I can't remember if I have ever got a 83% on an academic class, much less a general education requirement class. Geology 100 was one of those classes I failed in the past, one of the reasons I dropped off the face of academia 3 years ago.
Now the cat is out of the bag, I can actually pass these classes and get better then a D in them. Next up is History 151: World Civilizations, yet another class I have received an F in years ago.
This history class is going to be a lot of work! Not only do I have the text book to read, but I have another book to read, "The Closing of the Western Mind: The Rise of Faith and the Fall of Reason." You can read the reviews at Amazon, it has mixed reviews, but most are positive.
This book is thick, and by that I mean "thick." I need to write a review of this book, it is worth 25% of our grade. So I have a lot of reading to do. It sounds like an interesting book, that always helps, but like I said, its a thick read, not an easy read.
So this explains my lack of updates to my blog as of late, and for that matter pertains to the near future as well. But I wanted to write about my great news about my Geology class. If it was not for these art classes I would be going insane. More about the art classes later.
