Sometimes I Surprise Myself

Maybe I am just one of those people who doubts themselves, but most of the time after I take an exam I have no idea how I did on it - and then start to think I did badly on it. Usually this dissipates when I see I actually did pass, and usually end up making an A or B (though sometimes a C).

However, science is just a little bit different for me. It is something I really have to study and because I’m planning on going into the nursing field, I really need to do well on the pre-requisite courses. This semester I’m in Anatomy and Physiology I. I also have another Psychology course, but I’m not too worried about that one.

Today I took my first exam in Anatomy and Physiology. I studied like crazy this weekend and last night, so I was really hoping I’d do well. While I was taking the test, by question 28 or so, I was thinking to myself, “Wow, I’m awesome.” Why? Because I knew every answer with no second guesses. Near question 30 though they got a little harder. I still knew most of them though, and was really confident I got an A by the end of the exam, or at least a high B.

I was even the first one finished!

The professor said he’d have the exam grades posted by this afternoon, so I go into our online area and check to see if they are indeed posted yet…

I scored 94/100!

Sometimes I do surprise myself.

I just hope that the rest are this easy for me.

Way to go Sheri! I can't get science to make sense to me, but I think you studied so hard it was IN your brain so you aced it easy, just keep that up and you will pass the class just as easy!
Hey did you ever get my letter I sent before Florida? Was it okay?
