It is time to close one chapter, and begin another; at least as far as school goes.
After an intense week of studying, I wrote the final exam for my twentieth century history class yesterday, and received my results this evening. I ended up with an 85 on the final exam, which will keep in the 80-90 range for my overall mark.
I’m not going to lie, I was sweating this this exam. I studied hard, but when I got into it, things just didn’t feel like they were coming together. However, I pulled it off, for which I am grateful. I definitely could not have done it without the support of Lynn.
With twentieth century history now complete, I am switching gears. I need to get back into my literature course which I started June first, and as of Thursday, I am officially starting a communications course though the university. I’m hoping I can balance things to be able to manage the two courses at the same time. Time will tell.
Otherwise, this week is lighter for me, work wise. I had a meeting last night, and today I was invited to take pictures at our local school’s graduation ceremonies. Tomorrow, I’m doing a bit of a road trip and getting my stuff together for the market on Thursday. It will be my first market of 2021, and I am looking forward to it. I actually have a bunch of new prints to display, which will be available for purchase.
Aside from that, we are trying not to melt. Western Canada has been under an intense high pressure weather system which has been bringing record high temperatures to our region. It has definitely be warm. I know that the graduation ceremonies today were pretty stuffy. The heat makes me grateful for my office being in the basement, and somewhat cooler than the rest of the house.
Mentally, I’m doing alright. The last week has been hard, studying pretty much every spare second I could find, but the end result was worth it. I do know that I was pretty tense while I was waiting for the exam mark to come in, but now that I have it, a weight feels like it has been lifted.
