Final grades were posted yesterday and I’m bummed.
I got a B+ in Economics y’all.
A B+. That so ruined my streak of A-minuses. Seriously. I haven’t done that well in school since…well, since high school? Maybe? Anywho, the point is one of these things is not like the others.
I’ll give you a hint: it begins with the letter B and ends with the symbol +. I think the worst thing was that I missed an A- by a measly 1.5 points! I would try to argue but that would actually necessitate a 3-point boost in my final exam grade and my final exam wasn’t that fabulous. I’d be hard pressed to squeeze a single extra point out of that thing, let alone three. So I just need to accept this as the truth and move on.
Because I know I sound like a complete nerdy jerk for complaining about getting a B+ when there are educationally starved children in some country over there that don’t even get B-pluses. How dare I be so insensitive and selfish?! WHAT NERVE!
But I am a classic overachiever. Well, that’s not true. Let me back that up. I’m what I would call an effort-adverse overachiever. I love getting good grades. I just don’t like having to invest that much effort, though I will do it if need be. But I won’t be happy about it. I’m probably a pretty infuriating kind of student to have. But I do have tons of charm that maybe balances things out just enough to keep the teachers from wringing my neck.
I ended up getting an A in my Marketing Management class, which really makes that B+ grind my gears. Sigh. I guess I really shouldn’t be complaining. What, with all those educationally starved children in some country over there with no B-pluses of their own.
Someone’s gotta think of the children.
