I know I have this.

This semester, all A's. ALL A's.

Focus. I want more than a degree. I want to be educated. I want to learn. I want to be dutiful and responsible. I want to make myself proud. I want to create an environment where I'm destined to win, and not to lose.

I really feel like my professors are on the sidelines, and they're cheering me on (not the most attractive cheerleaders... haha!) and it'd be foolish to throw away the game or pretend the game doesn't matter.

Play full out. 100%. I've got this, I've got this, I've got this.

Lather, rinse, repeat.


  1. i like the education and learning point. i disagree with the emphasis on all A's. I knew tons of people in school who received A's who really at the end of the day didn't actually learn anything.

  2. There's exceptions to every rule. For the most part, those who receive A's, got more out of the courses than those who receive C's. There are those that don't have to lift a finger to get the A. The kind of A that I want is one where I walk away learning the main gist of a subject, while satisfying the requirements of the prof.

    It's a measurable goal. Concrete. And that's what I'm going for. :)

  3. yes indeed. measurable goals are good. i'm just making a comment from the other side of the spectrum since as you know i tended to fall on the other end of the all A range and unlike you had adversarial relationships with quite a few of my professors :)... or at least in college. to that end...

    learning > grades based on prof requirements
