I did it! I made it past first semester finals week! It was a very long week filled with struggles and stress, but I SURVIVED! However, there is one thing that I absolutely HATE when entering finals week, and that is borderline grades. Borderline grades put so much pressure on you because you have to score extremely well on the test in order to either maintain your grade or bring your grade up the few decimal places you need to reach the next highest grade. My math grade going into the final was 90%. I needed to ace this test or score a very high “B” in order to keep this grade.
In class this week, we watched an ESPN movie called The Guru of Go. This movie was very moving and motivational, and it reminded me that in life, I will be faced with many situations, but I can choose how I respond to them.
My jaw dropped to the floor after I watched this video. This man put in so much of his time and effort and in the end, it payed off. His hard work and dedication created something truly amazing.
