I wound up with a B+ for my final grade in Pediatrics. I was one point short of an A-. For all the blood sweat and tears I put into that class the A- would have been really nice, but I am PROUD of my B+ because that class was brutal. Nothing has ever made me want to quit anything so badly in all my life. That class challenged every fiber of my being. But here I am, telling the tale and triumphing. I didn't quit, I perservered and I am damn proud of myself for it.
Med/Surg grades should be up this weekend. I went into the final with a pretty strong A so I am hoping to hold onto that for a final grade. Final Exam grades must be posted by Monday, so that is the latest I will know how I did. For now I am basking the glory of my achievement and this semester will go down in history as the most taxing one so far, but also the one that I managed to get a 100 and a 101 in, and for that I am speechless. It feels so good to be done. I'm not sure if I know how to "be" without studying constantly, but I am sure I will find some way to occupy my time.
I'll report back about my Med/Surg grade but for now. . .
