I really should be studying right now. I have my business law exam tomorrow at 10 AM, then on Thursday I have my finance exam at 9:30 AM. I don't even know what my problem is right now. When I was at my community college, I worked my booty off studying and my grades reflected that, I had a 4.0 GPA. Then I come to university and my whole studying routine was shot. I usually read my books right after the class or even before, but here I haven't been. Sometimes because I get distracted, and sometimes because I have no time.
What really bugs me is that I studied for my marketing exam, I really did. I'm the kind of person who wants perfection. So I took the exam and thought it was such an easy exam, surely I got an A. The next class my prof hands back the exams saying the range was from 28 - 92%. I'm used to being in the higher percentile, so when my prof said something about "this guy was a grade maker" or something like that to an Asian guy, I was thinking, "well more than one person may have gotten it." He gives me my exam and what do I find? An 88%. What the helllllll?!?!?! I really did not expect to miss more than 3-4 questions (50 all in all). He then said that a few questions were iffy so we would add 10 percent to our grade.... so basically in the books it will be a 98%... which still means someone beat me. I know I'm being an egotistical perfectionist, but damn if my effort meant a thing! Aghhhhh... it just makes me want to work harder.
Work has been kind of annoying. Actually very annoying. I'm a waitress at a Japanese restaurant, and we used to make good money on tips, but since school started people don't come out to eat as often. Or we just get the high school students who come in to eat sushi & since they probably don't work too much, they don't tip well. It's understandable. No, what has been annoying me is that some people at work expect me to be this nice, affiable person, even when I'm pmsing or am stressed out. I'm the go-to girl for covering people, or finding people to cover for a friend. Uh, sometimes I wish I could just be a bitch or something so they'd stop asking me hahaha :P Okay that's a bit too extreme. Last week I worked 5 nights in a row, including one full day shift. Maybe that doesn't seem like much, but compound that with 16 credit hours and 2 parents who expect me to have A's (and one conscience that DEMANDS a 4.0), and you've got yourself a stressss-o-rama. Not only that, but a co-worker of mine that I like, but who gets on my nerves sometimes, was complaining that since she didn't have enough $ to pay for tuition this semester, she was going to work. She wanted more shifts (she's been working for about 3 weeks or so), but literally EVERY week she calls me and asks if I'll cover her.
I really should go back to studying. I figure if I study tonight for my blaw exam, tomorrow I'll study for my finance & I should be alright. Alright, enough complaining.... night y'all!
P.S. You know what, to stop myself from playing on the computer, I'm going to give my laptop to my Honie (who is bringing me some McDonalds... I know, unhealthy, but I crave what I
crave) so I won't be tempted by y'all to stay on! :D
