It's late

Yes, it's late, but I've only been home from work for about 90 minutes. I don't want to go to bed yet because then I just have to get up in about 4 hours and do it all again. Tomorrow is Friday though. (Actually it's already Friday--12:30 a.m.) :-)

I'm really bummed because I made a 76 on my cataloging midterm. I actually did quite well on the actually cataloging part of the test--26 of 30 points. However, I stupidly missed 4 of the multiple choice questions. One wrong answer was the result, I think, of carelessly choosing the wrong button because I knew the answer without looking up anything. Another one was the result of a guess; I couldn't find any definitive information to help me know the correct answer. The remaining missed questions, I don't know why I missed them. I guess I just didn't read carefully enough. I can still make a B in the class and might still be able to make an A, but I am really disappointed in myself for making that 76. Now, I have to work my ass off and make sure that my two big projects are really well done. I don't have room for any slacking or procrastinating, and I hate it when that happens.

This weekend will not be much fun, I'm sure. I have much class work to do and much grading to do. I wanted to go to the museum today or Sunday. Today, I worked late, and it looks like I will be working all day Sunday. I hate being a responsible grown up. I want to be an irresponsible grown up instead.

Okay, I hear On Beauty and my bed calling me.

Kim, Though I totally understand the way you feel, don't be too hard on yourself. Those slacker moments are the most important (I say as I stack up my to do lists tidily), and we all must indulge these frequently. I am swamped too, but I thoroughly plan to waste some time with my sims today and to watch some TV later tonight! If I don't I think I will be certifiably insane (as though I'm not already ; )

I'm sorry you didn't do as well as you wanted on your exam, but it's okay. Don't beat yourself up about it. You've been doing fine otherwise and I know you will continue to do well!
