I received my Biology exam mark back today and surprisingly I got 70%. I was expecting 60% or less. 70% is still not a great mark but considering I stuffed 6 weeks of studying into less than 2 weeks it is not too bad. Actually, it was more like 4 or 5 days because I had to work as well. And considering I have not taken a science course in 28 years I am not dissatisfied with 70%. Anyway, I know I can do better and the teacher will reset the exam so I can study properly. I had mentioned that I needed to get this first exam in before May 1 to not have to pay for the course. So, that is done and now I can take a breath and start over.
And, this was unexpected too. I went to TOPS tonight I got 3rd place for most weight lost in the last quarter of 2014! They gave me a yellow rose and a nice certificate that I put on my fridge. (Aside – I don’t like stainless steel appliances. You can’t stick things on with magnets!)
Today at work I went to the client that has soup (cream of mushroom) every single day and does not own a ladle. It takes a fair amount of restraint on my part not to say, “Why don’t you buy a fucking ladle? How can you have soup every day for lunch and not own a fucking ladle?” It is now one of the mysteries of the Universe. Perhaps if I could find out why she doesn’t own a ladle and yet insists on soup it would set off a chain of events where many of the world’s mysteries could be solved. Maybe we could find out how the pyramids were made. Or a cure for cancer. There is no telling what could happen.
