(I feel like this post should be accompanied by the sort of sad music that comes with a Charlie Brown Christmas special).

Got back a quiz from Stat's yesterday. Didn't do so well - passed, but not with a grade I wanted. Now I have to make a perfect score on my last quiz to make an "A" average on my quiz grades. Seeing as how Stat's is impossible for me, I'm not overly hopeful.

Got back a Marketing test last week, didn't do as well as I wanted on that either - now I have to make an, "A" on the final, to get an, "A" in the class.

What the hell is wrong with me?! Why am I doing so poorly - I was an, "A" student in my undergraduate years, but I seem to be just average here in MBA land. I feel so stupid 95% of the time, like all my classmates are head and shoulders above me. Yesterday, I was only one of eight in the Stat's class who didn't get a, "B" or higher. Everyone else, the other 15, got, "A's" and, "B's".

I know in the long run my GPA matters less than those three letters on my resume - MBA, but it still hurts. I'd like to think I had a modicum of intelligence, but it certainly doesn't seem to be manifesting itself in this degree program. Maybe I do have a low I.Q.??? Is there any online I.Q tests I can take to find out?

I'm feeling depressed.

To top that off, my crush in SA is totally ignorning me - wonder if he's mad at me. And why the hell do I care?! He's not right for me anyway. Stupid emotions, need to catch up with my brain thoughts.

Come on already, forget SA. As far as grades, you've been out of school for a while, in the 'real world'. It takes a while to build back up.
And as we've said, they just look for those letters, never had anyone at a job interview mention grades.

I'm in a bit of a funk now too - it's that time of year, and everything will be OK. Don't worry so much about stats - not everyone is great at stats - your strengths lie elsewhere. I send a huge hug - the semester will be over soon!

When you are the CEO of IBM you'll look back at all of this and laugh (as well as support your Blog Father).

YES! NO pity parties chica!!! Remember how my obsession with my GPA screwed things up for me? Rise above that... you know you are better than a stupid grade on a piece of paper... the essential thing is to pass, be done with it and yes, get that MBA... and you CAN do THAT! WOOH! GO for it and cheer up!

I third the motion for no pity parties. Some classes simply suck the crack out of ass and they aren't our cups of tea. c'est la vie, c'est la ecole.

It totally bites that you didn't get the grade you wanted on the quizzes and while you may not end up making an "A" for the semester in those classes, who cares? there's NO shame in a "B" and if you've tried your hardest, there's NO shame in a "C." I took college math 3 times before I passed it; and I passed with a thin "C." It's not my forte, but the job got done and that letter (and subject) haven't affected my life since. Do your best, get your grade, move on. When you're practicing your new future, I guarantee, someone else at an adjacent desk will be worried about stats.

As for S.A.: I agree with Joe. Besides, it's thousands of miles away and a completely imagined future. You live here. In the present. So be here, now. (I know it's hard, though;trust me. And for that, I send you a hug.)

Joe - you made me smile - I can hear the exasperation in your voice, forget him already and everytime I start to think of him, I think of that exasperation - it helps!

Random Kath - thank you! You're right, something about this season can be a bit bummy - who knows why and I always appreciate the hugs!

Pax - from your lips to God's ears, one day I can laugh at this (and of course it goes without saying I would support my Blog Godfather).

Miz Bohemia - oh thank you - I love the cheering, somehow I picture you and the two little ones on the sidelines shouting "go Virginia Gal." Its sweet : ) Yes, obessing will get me nowhere. Must stay focused on the end goal, that MBA.

Molly - I love your hugs especially regarding Mr. SA - who I shall strive not to mention hereafter.
Thanks for sharing the story, having meet you after college, I can see the first hand lack of effect of barely passing college math did to you. You did and continue to impress me with your intelligence and global awareness, YOU ARE SO RIGHT, even if I don't do aces in Stat's, doesn't make me a worse person! Thanks!
