The Great Grade Race - Fall 2009 Edition

So by now you all know how Scientist Genius Brother is every parents dream child which pretty much means he is a pain in my ass. But I overlook his habit of making me look bad because he takes my kid on vacation to the other side of the world for three and a half weeks PLUS he is an awesome brother.

But, I am out to overtake him in the grade department if it KILLS me. At least for my undergrad degree g.p.a. I have no intention of getting a Ph.D. in chemistry - getting root canals and digging ditches sounds like more fun than that.

To recap, he graduated with a 3.86 g.p.a. As of the end of my Junior year I had a 3.76 - ARRRGGGGHHHH! I was LOSING!

Here are my grades for fall quarter '09

Literature and Popular Genre a.k.a. Westerns Really Aren't That Bad - Except "Shane", it sucked = 3.9
Public Memory and Dissent in American Culture; Remembering Nat Turner a.k.a. History is Confusing = 3.6
Approaches to Social Research a.k.a. Snoozefest = 3.9

So in the great grade race I am at a 3.88, I'M WINNING! But not by much, I'm gonna have to kick some ass in my last two quarters if I want to keep my lead.

Yup, I'll be graduating in June. Only 2 quarters left.

What *will* I do with all my spare time after I graduate?

Get a job you slacker!

Girl, I felt the same way when I finished grad school. As a matter of fact, that's when I started blogging, since I thought I had SO much free time all of a sudden. ;-) tee hee! That didn't last long, and before I knew it, I was adding a third job to the mix. I just hope that won't be your situation.

Congrats on showing up Genius Brother!

Well, you'll blog more often, of course! Great grades!

You SHOULD be going to Venice, Athens, & the Greek Islands with me! But you're far too practical & career driven! :-) Isn't grad school on the agenda?

Congrats on your grades!!
