I'm getting a C in one of my two J-term classes.

A C!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was supposed to be one of the easiest classes in J-term.

I'm getting a C.

There's lot of excuses I could use. The professor is Korean, there's only a total of 100 points diveded up into four 25 point tests. (Which is a new format for this class, those who called it easy didn't have this.) We have 20-30 pages of notes per test. The professor's English is bad enough and he uses trick questions. We don't have text book. I only know one person with an A. The list goes on and on.

But I still have a C.

The second C I've gotten in college, the other also being a communications course (which happens to be my minor).

If it wasn't for my other J-term class, in which I have an A, I would be below the GPA I need for my scholarship. So I will probably be fighting around that number the rest of my college career.

But here's the thing. I want straight A's in spring.

I've never cared much about grades before. A's B's the occasional C. Whatever. But I can't take it anymore. I have to do better. I NEED to do better. Not for my GPA, not for my scholarship. For me. I need to see straight A's. I don't think I've done it since elementary school, but I want it again. This is probably the worst semester to start this, I have a math class, start my marketing major, have a prof I've twice before getting two B's, the other comm professor which with I got a C. I know there is no possible way for me to get straight A's. But I'm going to try. I'm going to work harder than I've ever have. I finally have the hunger. I finally have the need. It will take a lot more than me, God will have to keep me going, my friends will have to keep me going, I will have to keep me going. But I'm going to try as hard as I can.
