    For the most part my grades are right up there. Except in math, which is why I had to switch majors. If it's not there, it's not there no matter how much time I put into it no matter how many hours I spend with the tutor number and how much practicing I do. But I am extremely happy and excited in the new direction I'm heading in psychology.

    My grade for college algebra from the spring tells the story. I kind of bombed my general psych final exam, because it was a cumulative from the entire semester.

    Like I said I'm not really bragging I'm just happy and want to share with you guys!

    My grades now, compared to High School, are amazing. Sometimes I wish I could stop by the parents and hang the report card on their fridge lol. Congratulations on the grades, keep it up!

    Thanks, you too!

    I was gifted a high school diploma. My grades were barely passing. I hated everything about school, I had more important things to do in my mind. It's a damn shame, I wish I could go back and beat some sense into my younger self. LOL!

    Nice job!
    Math was always my Achilles heel in school as well, I hate math, my brain hates math, my soul hates math.

    Without Math, nobody would be able to calculate the Kinetic Energy of an arrow.

    Congrats and keep up the work.

    Congrats on a job well done. You definitely earned it. What did you end up switching your major to?

    Lol thanks everyone!!

    Kristen, smitty is right. I am a psych major now. I plan on going all the way through to get my Masters degree. My goal is to be a therapist/counselor at the VA hospital or somewhere similar where I can work with veterans with PTSD.

    Nice job swamp. It sure is nice when all the hard work pays off. Now you just need to have that type of success with hunting after putting in all the work. :bow:

    Nice! Keep it up, brother, because your end game is a worthy one.

    Instead of calculating KE mathematically, you can talk about how the arrow feels about its lack of pass through that has left it broken and without meaning.
