Finishing Out The Semester

The semester ended back on April 26th! and I've been busy catching up on things that have been long over do to be done. Which included a long over due hang out with friends and family! among other things.....

I finished the semester strong with a 90% on my Chemistry Final and a 93% on my English Class final.

What a whirlwind semester! I hate Chemistry AND English class. I went into the semester thinking I would just have to muddle through it somehow. Crash study for chem and just slap some words on paper for English. What actually happened took me off guard.

Chemistry was actually interesting! AT least the way my chem teacher taught it. He happens to be a high school chem teacher too, so he has learned way to keep his students engaged. It had worked for him in college too because my ADD self paid attention and actually understood!

English Class was the greatest surprise of all. Honestly I never thought of myself as a writer. Of course I have lots of thoughts but I never imagined they were worth putting down. My English professor introduced me too Ballenger and the technique of writing badly. This technique actually worked for me and class was easy! In fact I found myself enjoying writing so much I started this blog. I don't know where it will take me but I know I love writing.
