A is for Academic Awesomeness

Well, school's over for the semester. I'm pretty sad about it since it means not having an hour class-break in my work day. However, it does mean I can do more of the following:
  • paint
  • lay in bed
  • read
  • spend time with friends (though now I have very few...a semester of full-time work plus school will do that)
  • cook healthy meals (versus pizza...every.single.fricken.day.)

Anyway, the real reason for this post is that I wanted to brag about the A I got in my chemistry class. Yup...the professor emailed me today and congratulated me on it. I got 97% on my final and my final grade was 95.7%...

I can die now.*

*But not really. I still have an undergraduate degree to get, a master's to get, a phd to get...and I want to take J to London and Florence before I die. Plus, I still need to read a bunch of books I got from the library, seethe 4th Jurassic Park movie (if it ever comes out), go to the SVP conference and win the lottery. And I can't very well die having never been on a dig...

Eeexcellent Smithers! I'm jealous. I'm very, very, very jealous...did I mention that I'm jealous? Oh well, congrats Ashford!

Chris: Thanks...you'll have to let me know how orgo and physics went...

Zach: Do you know anything about it? Part of me hopes they don't make one so I don't have to endure hours of crap...but I really really want them to make one...a GOOD one. With more Sauropods!!!

Congrats on your Chemistry Exam. I am so proud of you :)

Amanda said...

Thanks Mom! I'm pretty proud of me, too :) Can't wait to see you! (24th-26th).

Oh lord, Amanda, why would you want to see more sauropods after the fat, jiggly mammalian brachiosaurs from JP3 wiggled their way to the waterfront? :-)

I know nothing about the film, only that it is (supposedly) in pre-production. The title is from a Penny Arcade comic.

Another round of congrats on the chem score -- the best I ever did was an A- in Chem 101, and that was the second time I took it...!

Do you know anything about it? Part of me hopes they don't make one so I don't have to endure hours of crap...but I really really want them to make one...a GOOD one. With more Sauropods!!!

Well, if this old rumor is still what they're planning for the movie (if it's still being planned at all), then you're in for a long, sad wait... Ye gods but I hope they don't make that movie...!!!

Zach Miller said...

Jerry, I pray that movie will never be made.

Amanda said...

Oh.My.God. I just read that "sneak peek" and I'm appalled. I also pray that they never make that movie...at least, not with the name "Jurassic Park" associated with it. That's just horrible...
