The fall finals season kicked off Thursday with a strong showing on the Entrepreneurship exam, 97.8, which gives me a solid A on everything in the class.
The semester grade is pending my business plan, due this Thursday.
Then, bright and early this morning, came the main event, the Intercultural Communication final.
Despite a whole 2 hours of studying Sunday night, early setbacks were daunting: precious study/sleep time was lost due to a poorly-timed fire alarm in a freshman dorm late Sunday night. Also, procrastination is believed to have been a factor.
I awoke bright and early* this morning to read two pages on business communication in China, arriving at the exam a few minutes late, even without the usual shower.
I felt good at the end, but I knew I'd missed more than a couple questions. I felt I'd earned a B on the exam and for the semester, which seemed fair given the amount of effort I put in.
91.2% on the INTL final, for a decent A, about 10% beyond my expectations.
In a decidedly magical and possibly miraculous series of events, this bumped me up to 450 points out of a possible 500.
Or as it says on the transcript:
School is expected to suffer a crushing defeat on Wednesday at the Machine Shop Practices final.
