C is for cookie, Christmas, and my grade.

Sigh.

I tried. Really, I did. That is what bums me out so much. Despite my best efforts, and a LOT of work, I was only able to pull off a C+ in my Statistics class. I was holding out hope for a B, but to no avail. I'm hoping my pity party will wear off sometime between now and the end of the day.

Stat wasn't a complete waste of my time. I actually did learn a lot, and despite my grade, I do feel that it was worth the effort. Plus, I made some new friends in the class who rock. Really nice people. The one guy, J, (I won't use full names without permission) has bestowed on me the best nickname ever.

DKMC.

Not to be confused with DKNY.

DK (my initials), plus MC (Montgomery County College)

Yep, that's right. I'm a bad ass. I will now refer to myself as DKMC.

Hey, it worked for Prince and Beyonce.

Don't beat yourself up so much, Stats is HARD and useless IMO. But no Prof Johnson I did not just say that LOL. Um you can always take it again and again and again, not that I DID or anything like that, just saying. Or it could just be the one class that prevents you from holding a degree, again not speaking from experience or anything like that LOL

A C+ on a Stats final is good and you should feel proud. You worked very hard in the class and it showed. That is what counts. Love, Lisa

So when you go for drinks don't let him order the Champagne... just Cognac or Chardonnay. Or maybe there's one that starts with a D or F--a grade for him... LOL!

Congrats on passing the class! :)

I would be proud I passed. I don't even have the balls to take the dang class.

What counts is that you KNOW that you worked your butt off and not every grade is a reflection of what you know or how hard you worked.

You did very well to earn a C+.

When I was taking Human Anatomy, I just knew that I was going to ace the class because it was so interesting to me. But, I have test anxiety and wouldn't you know it...I drew a blank when it came time to examine various dissections. I ended up with a C as well. But, I was proud that I passed and loved the class.

Well if it makes you feel any better I failed Statistics class... :) totally failed it!

I was working on a second masters degree and when I failed statistics I decided one masters degree would work just fine for me!!
