Spring Finals Update

Things below the surface seem dubious but, on the surface things couldn't be going better.

My leadership group project earned an "A" and my team evaluations a 145/150.  There are still three small papers to be graded, one of which was much shorter than the requirement of 500 words.  Admittedly, I had forgotten all about them, and so at the last minute threw it together.  In my defense, it was a reflection on the group project, and you can only write so much before it gets repetitive.  I had something to turn in, which is more than some could say.  Still a little more organization on my part, would have aided the situation.  Other than that, I'm still worried about how a number of absences from being sick in the beginning of the semester will affect everything else.  Stage Makeup, my biggest concern thus far, I have is the only grade actually posted so far: A.  My philosophy final exam went smoothly and I've been guaranteed an enthusiastic reccomendation letter by the professor.  I was really very moved and connected well to the anti- mass consumerism view of the class.   I took a lot away from it, in fact I was in angry tears by the time I had written the final lines of my final.  The convictions I took away from that class were that solid.  Oddly enough, straight from that final I went my Acting final filled with enough disgust, Tennessee Williams himself would have been proud of Maggie.  I transposed a few lines during my scene from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.  This was due in part to the fact that the monologue had been cut from a longer version I learned closer to the beginning of the semester.  Once you learn a song or a lyric one way, it's quite hard to chop it up and re-memorize it, a second.  So the other lovely young lady, who performed the scene, Carmen Elia had much better memorization, but both ended up having two different flavors.

So let's look at the tot board:
Honors Philosophy:
Acting I:
Stage Makeup: A
Honors Leadership:

GPA updated: 3.500 -> 3.558
