43%

Under any other scholastic endeavor a 43% on anything would be cause for me to have a chat with the professor. But I am actually ok with this. Dr. Hype came in the classroom yesterday and the first thing he did was list a bunch of numbers on the board. Then he passed back exam one. The purpose he did it that way is so when we got our test back we saw how we did compared to the class. Now allow me to break this down. There are 62 students in the class, 51 took the test, SEVEN people made a grade of 70% or higher and the highest grade was 87%. Since 51 took the test, whatever grade number 26 was was the median....which was me at 43%. 25 people got grades under me and 25 got over me. Out of the 25 that got over me only 7 passed. So yeah, I don't feel that bad. LOL If the tears that fell from me and ole girls eyes and the frustration on our faces from a few days ago didn't tell him we wasn't on the same page with him. These test grades sure showed him. I mean the lowest grade was an 11%! He found us a tutor, thank God!

The insurance company of the chick who caused the accident and I made an appointment to have the van looked over by one of their people and to cut me a check for what they think it will cost to fix. I hope my long distance mechanic can fix it for a lot less so I could use the extra to get the other stuff I want done to the van done, but we will see tomorrow when he comes to look at the van and the car. If he can't fix it for less than what the check is I am niggariggin' the van! LOL I am going to get him to straighten the bumper I got as much as he can then bang the area's that prevent me to open the back down so they would be room. Heck I might just tell him to do that anyways, I know it would be a lot cheaper. I mean the paint is peeling on other parts of the van anyways so it would look kinda crazy having this older model van with a brand new bling blinging bumper on it right? LOL I also have the option of buying another booster seat on ole girls tab. But I really don't need one. The impact wasn't that severe and there isn't much to a booster seat. If Pooka was in a car seat I would probably got another one.

I got a rain check for my massage. Some things came up but he did call and we chit chatted for a few minutes which we never really do. I kinda like this new and improved version of T-Lo. He is being the person I wished he was about 2 years ago when I met him, but I am not getting my hopes up and forcing myself not to think to much about it because I know once everything is right again in his world, he is going to disappear. When your world is full of chaos you hold on to what's familiar and stable a tad bit tighter. So I am just enjoying the attention while it lasts.

Girlllllll only the fact that the vast majority of the class failed the exam kept me from my ego from exploding! Ladynay may not do so hot on some school work, but never fail! Not like that! Not when I studied! Hopefully the tutor will help.

The 43% would have thrown me for a loop...

Hopefully you can get your van together like you want it.

You knw I am very anal when it comes to test but I am very thankful to curves no matter how lopsided. I hope the tutor helps.

Ladynay said...

Sar, you can count on that!

Luvin, it would have if I didn't know that I was nowhere near alone. Everything is going to work out.

DNT, Dr. Hype don't do curves but it's gonna be okay anyway.

I had a couple of professors that did grades like that. As far as I'm concerned if only seven people out of 51 passed the exam then your professor needs a tutor. Trust me if the department head sees all of those low scores Dr. Hype is going to find a way to raise everyone's grades.

LOL @ niggariggin' consider it stolen. :o)

Ladynay said...

Freaky, you probably right and you don't have to steal it. Consider it your birthday gift.

Ladynay said...

One of my professors once gave the whole class a 20 point curve. Out of 28 students, 3 passed the test.

Freaky Deaky said...

That's my birthday present? Can't I get some nekkid pics or something? :o(

i took a microeconomics class last semester and on every test just about every did fair to poor. somehow i ended up w/ an A in the class. gotta love those curves!

yeah, that last paragraph is very interesting. w/ me, i know someone who behaves the opposite. when his life is under turmoil, i don't hear from him and when things are on the up and up, he pops back up. ppl are so interesting.

Emotionalbrotha said...

Ladynay nay,

I know how u feel about that test.. but u got a tutor so do the damn thing..

As far as T-Low, I think Brady said it best, Almost made u love me, almost made u cry, almost had u baby, didnt i. didn't i... to cut to the chase.. almost doesnt count.

Ladynay said...

Southern, you was one of the 3 right? I had lab w/Dr. Hype today and he is sticking to his no curve rule.

Freaky, the site where those were don't work no more! Sorry. ROFL

BB, just reading the word microeconomics made me cringe and I took that in like....99. Normally T-lo goes under a rock, but I guess his normal sound board wasn't around so he started reaching out elsewhere. He has told me more about his personal life this go around then he has since I've known him.

EB, yeah almost don't count. I am just enjoying what ever this is while it's here.
