Academic Success is not solely measured by how many A's you have, what is of utmost importance is that you master the material being taught, and by the end of the semester you have grown as a student.
Granted, you must study hard to get As, but sometimes you might fail to answer a couple of questions correctly, so you might get Bs, or even C's. You can't always control that.
School was really more of a distraction from what was really stressful. I definitely coasted through this first year; made A's on most of my tests and all of the major projects. It didn't require much studying beyond taking notes in class but school is done until next fall when it should get quite a bit more interesting.
The stuff that's stressful has been going on for years. It's one of the motivating factors for returning to school. But tonight, just got some news that doesn't bode well for any long-term, let alone near-term, reduction in that stress.
Michigan is a beautiful state, but I am really resenting the fuck out of my experience here.
Now with extra singles!
